Hello all! Hope your week is off to a great start! After I did my last blog post, I realized I had forgotten to share my Around the Bases CAL with you. I've been finished with it for a while now, but keep forgetting to post about it. It was a fun CAL to do. I'm so glad I joined in! I have started CAL where squares are made, but then I always fizzle out on the squares. This one was nice because it was in rounds, so when it was done, it was done. :) Thanks for stopping by!!

The time keeps flying by! I see it's been almost a month since I last posted. I've been keeping busy crocheting and getting ready for Christmas. We recently celebrated our youngest grandchild's birthday. He will turn 3 on Christmas Eve, but we celebrated a tad early. He loves airplanes and had an airplane themed party, so I made him this hat. I didn't use a pattern. I just winged it. No pun intended. lol I'm not pleased with the plane's wings, but he could tell it is a plane, so that's what is most important.
The following items were made to order. The colors in the pics aren't very good. I used my tablet to take the pics, and the lighting wasn't right, etc., etc.
I've been crocheting lots of Christmas presents, too. Can't show you most of them, but I will show you what I made for Adelyn and her dolls. Her mommy has already seen them. ;) She has two American Girl type dolls, and they need some winter coats. I found a pattern online for the coat and hat, and then I made a hat for Adelyn to match. The pattern for the doll coat and hat can be found HERE.
We had a nice Thanksgiving. I took a timed pic. It's fuzzy, but it's better than no pic at all. I just can't get over how quickly the kids are growing. -sigh-
Yesterday we did some cookie decorating. I make sugar cookies, for Christmas, every year, and then go on the search of some decorating helpers. :) In this pic Lawson and I are talking about our matching spatulas.
I doubt I'll be posting again until after Christmas, so for those of you who celebrate Christmas, I wish you a very Merry Christmas! And for those of you who celebrate something other than Christmas, I wish you Happy Holidays! :) Thanks for stopping by!
