Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

In a crocheting mood

I've been hit by the crochet bug again.  I made this cute Toadstool House (I wanted to call it a Magic Mushroom house, but thought twice, lol).

I also found a cute purse pattern and tried it:

crocheted bag
I like it, but it's very, very small.  A paperback novel would fit inside, but that's about it.

I also made this hot dog toy for my dog, Mac.  He loves it!

Mac was very happy and energetic today.  He's 9 weeks post surgery, and able to walk in the yard for short jaunts now.  Every week I can let him walk more, until he builds up his muscles again.

It's been super hot here, so i have the fan right behind his crate, so he can cool off.   I have both air conditioners runninng too.
