:: Little Things ::

Wow! This week is sure going by quickly, but they always do after a Monday holiday. And I hope everyone had a good one.
Mine was calm and mellow. With the usual grilling and eating outside.
Lots of watermelon and sticky little hands made it a very traditional Memorial day weekend.

I've been very lazy about crocheting lately, maybe it's the beautiful spring weather that makes me just want to sit outside and enjoy the perfect 80 degree temperature. Who knows.
Still, I have managed to finish a few things, and have a bit of fun with some left over yarn.
I was inspired by my dear friend Lory at Lorybeatblog. Last week she posted a picture of her table set for tea, ( I love the whole British tea thing) and her tea cozy is adorable, I instantly fell in love with it. So, I decided to give it a try, and make a cozy for my tiny tea pot (two cups). And voila!!! There you have it. Not too shabby eh???

Then, there is the birdy bag which I started to crochet back in February to give to my daughter as a birthday gift (back in March). Well let's just say that it turned out to be a very belated B-day gift. She loved it of course. You can find the the pattern for this bag at hers is called the Starling bag. Of course, I always make little changes here and there, in this case I made the handles a bit longer, and added the bird appliqué ( my daughter loves birds ). I think I'll have to make one for myself. :)

And that is just about it for now, I think I will try to do a bit of sewing this week, and maybe finish a few things that are on my needles. But for now, back to my cup of coffee, and a bit of reading.

Take care, and have a fantastic day everyone!!!!

:: Happy Memorial Day :;

Remembering those who have given of their service and in many instances their lives for the freedom and safety we now enjoy in this great country.
Thank you to all the men and women in uniform.
And in a very special way a great big thank you to my big brother David for all the years (22) of service and dedication while serving in the United States Army.

May God protect you and keep you on your your latest tour on the USNS Mercy.
