FREEBIE FRIDAY - wool pin pattern!

This is one of my patterns....called spring and summer wool pin #2.
   They are simple and easy....a great way to use up small pieces of wool or felt!  I never like to throw away scraps (I should throw some away though!). 

I won a great giveaway, my first time and I won a GOOD one!  I will post it later!!

Spooky Large Flash Cards

Hi everyone!  I wanted to show you my large Halloween Flash I put it near my big hat I made last year for Halloween (I won a prize!)  It is part candy container, part cardboard and old paper, and I threw in a crown from Claires. 
These flash cards are so cool because they are print.  They are on my etsy if you are interested.
I wish kids could trick or treat like we used to in the old days (1970's) could go out for hours without a parent and they would check apples later to see if they were safe.  I remember going to one door and getting a cool.  We used pillow cases...plastic containers were to small for our serious candy collecting.
I was so creeped out from the wicked witch on wizard of oz....I would melt into the floor, so to speak, when she did.  Boy, she was a brilliant shade of green!
New Halloween patterns coming soon!!!

Freebie friday- old photo

I have to do another photo fom my collection, since I am at the allied arts show in Richland, Washington with my 3 sisters and my daughter.  It is a big arts and crafts show in a huge park on the columbia river.  It usually gets super hot...100 degrees....not good for a gal that gets hot easily.  There is so much to see and buy...very fun.  Then tomorrow we are going to another park where there is an antique is sometimes better than the art show!!!  By the way...I call this gal "The Nose" because everytime I see her I focus on her nose.  I know it is naughty of me...her hair is also interesting.

New Fun Halloween items

This is my pumpkin doll and witch treat bag I put on my Ebay.  I have a link on the left sidebar.   I love making Halloween stuff, it reminds me of being a kid again.  We made so many great Halloween decorations from construction paper...we covered our front windows with them.  I loved making a witch silhouette and moons with bat.

My kitty is so darned cute!!!

I just went through a few pictures from last summer....I found my kitty Froy who is one years old now.  No wonder I couldn't resist him at the pet store!!!  The first thing he did when we brought him home was bang his head on the wall trying to catch a string...he just shook his head and continued to frisk!

Now he is big, but still cute!  Selina loves him, they sleep together. He comes when you say his name and has a super loud purr.  He lays on my cutting table when I helpful.
