Little Doily #11

The square ones are rare.  I like them to break up the round streak.

Little Doilies x 6


A slew of little doilies were made this December for gifts galore.  99 Little Doilies from Patricia Kristoffersen is a treasure trove of tiny beauties.  Each doily is between 3"-6".  They only take about 1 evening of TV watching apiece.

These pictures aren't the slickest, but they're all I could get.  Our camera isn't the best at dim indoor lighting.

Floral Heart

Another from the pile:

This heart was for Cora, my niece, for her 5th birthday.  She lives in England now.  But, hopefully, through my handiwork, she will have fond thoughts of Aunt Lezlie.

Crinoline Lady #2

I'm going to start working my way through my pile:

This doll was for my nieces, Ava & Alyssa for Christmas.  They are growing up fast and Aunt Lezlie thought they might like something a little more 'grown-up' for a gift.

Instead of sage and black (look here), I used a creamy yellow and black.  The roses are red, instead of pink.

Son's Handicraft

My second son, Erik, made this footstool in his Foundations and Technology class.  He really enjoys that class and has made many neat things.

First Cherry Pie

This is the 1st cherry pie I've ever made.  I made it for my nephew, Bart's Christmas present.  I think it turned out well.  It certainly was pretty to look at.
