Bits and Bobs... Odds and Sods

Well that's an English expression meaning a little of everything and that's what today's post is all about.

When I came downstairs to my craft grotto this a.m., I found this and just had to take a picture....

We move our potted hibiscus trees from our deck to the basement once there's a chance of frost. What a cheerful surprise to find this delightful flower on a cold winter morning in Kansas!

And here's how it's looking outside...Even in their matching coats they don't look too happy, do they? I think they learned how to feign shivering so I go on a guilt trip and let them back in. Yep.. there's a whole lotta shakin' goin' on!

I wanted to show you one of my more recent projects. A few friends have written and asked that I share some of the pictures of the purses that I sell. Thought you might like to see my little works of fiberart also.

and the reverse side...

These are a mixture of knitting, crocheting, some needlework, using silk, mohair, wool blends and various fibers. They are an awful lot of work, but really fun to create. I get compliments on the one I use everywhere I go... it's such a conversation piece and truly a piece of art.

Thanks for stopping by my little place on the web. I hope that your day is filled with sunshine and happy events. 'Til next time, be safe in all you do.
