Busy Hands

I've been busy making hats (crocheting) and also made granddaughter Renee a Halloween costume.  She is now 15 months old, and Jessica pulls her hair into a little pony tail directly on top of her head.  So she is going to be Pebbles Flintstone for Halloween.   I got some  cougar cat looking material and made her a little off one shoulder top and pants.  I hope they fit her.  Kind of hard when she is so far away!  Then I made her a little bone and tie for her pony tail.  Of course, couldn't just send the outfit.  Had to get a little pumpkin for our pumkin!  I had some books, but they didn't fit in the box, so will have to send them later when I'm using a bigger box.  The postage on this little box was over 8 dollars. 
Then I've also been busy making the hats.  Sit and do that when we're watching tv at night.  Not every night, but I'm getting quite a few done.  Want to get more done for a little craft show that Leah and I are going to have a table at in late November.

When I had the camera out the other day Odda, sat down, and I felt her saying to me,
"I'm good, take a picture of me!!!!!

Yesterday I started cleaning out the little barn shed that we have stored all our extra outdoor stuff in for years since the girls got done using it as a horse barn.  I'll have to finish today.  What a dirty, dirty job.  This is where all my garden stuff is stored, and overflow of everything from the barn to yard to house!
Start of another nice weekend here.  Have a great one y'all!

I am always amazed at how talented and creative you are. Renee is going to be adorable in her costume. I hope her mom takes pictures of her, so that you can post them here and we can see how cute she is.
Love the picture of Odda. Oh how I would love to give her a great big hug. She looks like a big bundle of love.

You'll have to post a picture -- pictures -- of Renee as Pebbles. I'm sure she will be completely adorable. The hats are both cute and cozy looking.

The hats and the Halloween outfit are beautiful. I would love to be able to wear that style hat but take my word for it, you don't want to look at my face when my hair is flat on my head. My face looks square and it instantly ages me almost ten years! Odda is BEAUTIFUL, too. Isn't it funny how animals know what makes us happy (taking pictures) - - - so she posed for one.
