I feel the need to report back on what secret goodies were enclosed in my Christmas gifts to Corrie Dawn and family.
You know....for posterity's sake.
Like, my posterity will be reading this someday.
It could happen. On my travels and during every waking moment I pretty much had yarn and hook in hand. I found this cute, simple pattern for Wrist Warmers, AKA fingerless gloves, and had to give them a try.
I don't know about you but in my 1930's home, we are cold ALOT. Especially doing such active things like, sitting at a computer.
So I thought if my hands are cold SURELY everyone on my
Christmas list will have cold hands. So the crocheting began. You can type, play the piano, read a book AND turn the page, sew, unwrap candy, QUILT, I was even crocheting in MY wrist warmers!
They are so utilitarian, I can't stand it. Sorry, if you live in a warm climate and the last thing you want to do is put gloves on.
May you always live in warm climates.
May I move by you soon.
Then my little nephew 'shadowman'.......oh what can we say about shadowman? He's so cute , when we go to visit Corrie's family (and we stay for DAYS and eat all their food) he and Luna set up little cafe's. So while Corrie and I are working we can yell out an order to the Horseshoe Cafe and for less than a little praise, they will bring us water or a hershey kiss or whatever can be scrounged.
So I thought Smore's would be a perfect compliment to their menu. My hubby made this little Mini Smore's Grill.
The jury is still out.
I've yet to have a smore but I'm hoping with warmer weather and parents that aren't quite so safety conscious that one of those burnt marshmellows will have my name on it!
