Last year my friend Sara had a witch in tiny crochet.  She had lingered on my mind... Then recently she showed a tiny mermaid.  Couldn't stand it any longer!  I placed my order, and within days see what was in my mailbox! Link over to her facebook page Triple S Craftsto see this and other things she does.  


Today is my DS birthday.  Our family tradition is that the person gets to choose their favorite meal.  We're having what we lovingly dubbed, A Pot.  It already has multiple names... Seafood Boil, Low-Country Boil, Frogmore Stew, and on and on.  Ours has crab legs, shrimp, red potatoes, corn, with spices and hot sauce.  Yummmm - getting hungry just thinking about it.  And his cake of choice - Pumpkin Bundt.  

Hope everyone is staying cool and getting in a lot of stitching, sewing, punching, or any of your other favorite things to do.  
Peace * Love * Joy

  3. Lovely stitching and the crochet pieces are so sweet :)
    I hope that you have a wonderful birthday celebration with your DS.

  4. Lovely finishes for July! Are you going to use one of those metal tops for your strawberry? They are popular again! Hope the birthday celebration was enjoyed by all! Hugs!

  5. Gorgeous pieces. I especially like the last one with the bunnies. You have been staying inside, I'm guessing!
