Grandbaby #2 Turkey Hat

Happy Thanksgiving! Little Gavin is ready for the day with his crocheted turkey hat! Isn't this the cutest thing! My daughter made this for him just in time for the big day. I'm up early today to polish off some of those last minute goodies to be made. Grandson , Bryer spent the night and got up with me at 5:00 am. Just had to share this picture.

Primitive Gingerbread yo-yo candle mat

Having a quiet night home alone. Just finished up this candle mat and put it on ebay. Thanksgiving is almost here and I developed a head cold. So, today I've sneezed and blowed my nose all day, let's hope it let's up in the next couple of days! Trying to stay away from the babies. I don't want them sick. Tomorrow is baking day. I've got 4 pies to make and practice some on making hot rolls. I've not mastered the rolls yet. Got a new mixer to see if that helps?

Primitive Homespun Christmas candle mat

This candle mat is a yo-yo Christmas homespun primitive. Mat measures approx. 7 1/2" across. Great little accent piece for the primitive decor! I sell all my mats for 5.00 apiece. And currently have this one on ebay. I've sold over 70 of these little mats, this Fall. Various themes and plaids. If you are interested ,please contact me at I'd be more than happy to take requests.

Holiday candle mat

Here is a new Holiday candle mat, I've finally got finished! This one is a Santa candle mat. Just in time for the Holiday season. Been very busy these days with the 3 new grandbabies! I go to Bloomington, IL two days a week with my middle daughter, and watch the baby while she goes to school. She's going to be an Audiologist and this is her last semester of classroom work. So, I'm trying to help her out because she needs it. And her husband is in the Illinois State Police Academy and only gets to come home on the weekends. But just two and a half more months of that left. Then when I'm not there, I work part-time as a rural carrier and have picked up a couple of Saturdays this month so far. Wow! It's a busy time with Thanksgiving coming up, Christmas shopping, Shotgun deer season, babies coming to visit , and just normal stuff to do. But I'm trying to get in a few projects in between everything.
