Who Doesn't Love Angry Birds?

Recently I was showing off a crocheted baby cap and blanket at work ( I can't show you the adorable set yet, not until I give it as a gift).  One of my co-workers fell in love with it, but asked if I could make her a Yellow Angry Bird for her granddaughter.  So I began looking for a pattern.....and couldn't find one.  So I improvised.  I didn't even know what a Yellow Angry Bird looked like.  With a little research on the net this is what I came up with.  Looks pretty cute angry!  What do you think?

He sure looks angry to me!  
So we decided to do a swap.  She is a very experienced quilter, and I told her to just make me something.  I like surprises. This is what she came up with and made for me.

Isn't he ADORABLE? 
This very cute Reindeer is a Christmas card holder.

I am very much looking forward to receiving your cards this Christmas season.
Ok, whose next?  I really enjoy this swapping!

When I went to my mailbox on Wednesday, I had a package.

My friend, Dawn, at Creative Cain Cabin had sent me 3 beautiful flower pins.

I can't wait to wear them all! Thank you Dawn for a very nice gift.

Recently I was invited to go to Epcot to the Food and Wine Festival

by my brother & sister-in-laws, Jeff & Lisa.

I was a guest in there beautiful home for the weekend.

We had the best  pastries from a pastry shop down this french street.  I had the best napoleon I have ever tasted.

We ended the day rocking to the music of Night Ranger.

Thrifiting Friday

Today, while out doing errands, I decided to stop by the local GW.  This has become one of my favorite things to do lately.  I found a like new pair of black pants (for work or play), a new Gloria Vanderbilt peasant blouse and a new pair of brown sandals.  With my senior over 55 discount it came to a grand total of $11.00.  If you have an hour or so to spare stop in to your local GW and find yourself a great deal.
