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!

Teeny tiny needle felted bunny
 Happy belated Easter!
I was sick for a week but am thankfully feeling better now.  I made this cute little needle felted bunny rabbit for one of my sculpted dolls. The bunny is about the size of the tip of my thumb, very small.  Baby girl (I forgot her name, lol) seems to like her new pet.
First flowers of spring

  It has been a very long winter and the last of the snow is finally melting.  The crocuses are blossoming and their vibrant purples and more muted lilac colors are such a welcome change to snow and old moldy leaves.  I'm allergic to the ground right now, as it's full of mold/mildew.  A few good rains and a few sunny days should clear that up soon.

Mom, Easter
 We had a nice, quiet Easter, with just me, Mom and Dad, my cousin Linda, and the dogs, of course.  Mom made a beautiful Turkey dinner.

 My dogs were thrilled because they each got a plate of Easter dinner.  Mac even had apple pie for dessert, lol.  Ben was too full.

 The meal, and the pies, were to die for.  My mom only made 3 pies and some Easter bread (she normally makes 6 pies but my Aunts and Uncles didn't come over for dinner this year so she said she "cut back" and "only" made 3 pies.  For 4 people, lol.  The coconut cream and apple were delish, but my favorite was the banana cream pie.  Yum!  We also had a huge bowl of fruit with home made whipped cream.
Now we're all cutting back and trying to lose the weight we gained from eating all of that lovely pie, lol.
