YESTERDAY I GOT MY NEWSLETTER FROM SCRAPBOOK GRAPHICS AND DECIDED TO GO TAKE A LOOK. I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE DESIGNER NATALI'S KITS! I GOT 3 OF HERS THAT WERE ON SALE AND MADE THE BOOK I NEEDED TO DO FOR A MOTHER OF ONE OF MY KIDS. IT'S FOR A BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR HER MOM, HERE ARE TWO OF THE PAGES, IT REALLY TURNED OUT PRETTY AND I AM GOING TO USE THESE KITS FOR THE CHURCH BOOK, TOO!
ZAROGA, I DID TAKE A PICTURE OF A LITTLE SOMETHING I MADE FOR MY NIECE WHEN SHE HAD HER BABY 3 YEARS AGO, I USED UP SCRAPS FOR THE BLANKET. I LOVE THE WORK BASKET BOOKS! MY SISTER TWILA HAS SEVERAL, THEY REMIND ME OF MY AUNT DOLL WHO GOT THEM ALL THE TIME! YEARS AGO I FOUND A PATTERN IN ONE FOR A KLEENEX COVER THAT LOOKED LIKE A POOL TABLE AND MADE IT FOR MY BROTHER, I WILL HAVE TO ASK HIM IF HE STILL HAS THAT, I DOUBT IT THOUGH, IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO. THAT WAS A FUN THING TO MAKE AND SO EASY!
I UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE HEART RAISING. WHEN A NURSE TAKES MY PULSE SHE ALWAYS DOES A DOUBLE TAKE BECAUSE IT'S SO HIGH. IT USED TO RUN AROUND 112 OR SO BUT SINCE I HAVE CUT BACK ON PEPSIS IT IS UNDER 100. I CUT DOWN AT A GOOD TIME, THE PRICE HAS JUMPED, THE PLACE I COULD ALWAYS GET THEM FOR 2.75 IS NOW 3.50, I AM NOW AT 1 CAN A DAY AND I BOTTLE OF CAFFEINE FREE.
WELL I NEED TO GET READY FOR CHURCH, I MUST GET THERE EARLY TO START THE FAMILY PICTURES!

Your Pages are just lovely! I am sure they will be thrilled with their gifts! How talented you are with your crocheting! My Mother and Grandmothers could crochet beautifully but that is one skill I could never do. My Mama always told me that I went at it like I was diggin' taters! LOL!

The crochet is beautiful! I still have to clear a bath to get to my Work Basket books. I'm in no hurry... the yarn and patterns will be there :-)

I would probably be into scrap booking if I had a grand child :-) The pattern is nice.
