Happy birthday Nina!

Today is Nina's 3rd birthday. Happy day (although she wasn't very happy when I called her--too much birthday and not enough sleep). We got her a Dora doll that you can dress.

Then I made some clothes for Dora. This is a cheerleading outfit. I used the colors of Pattonville High School which big sister Haley attends.

This is a band uniform for Dora. It is similar to the one Haley wears in the band. Dora will be getting more clothes in the future. I got the patterns from the Crochetville site. The pictures are really cute, but the directions are not for beginners. I am glad I have had lots of crocheting years behind me because there were many times I had to figure out what to do next.

Mary is so creative!

I received this beautiful egg from my friend Mary, in Delaware. I have it hanging in my kitchen window where I can see it often. Mary is VERY creative in her packaging. This is what she used to send the egg to me. At first glance it looks like she sent me some cookie dough, but inside was the beautiful egg she crocheted!
She also sent an egg in a butter tub to Sherrie in Colorado. You can see it on her bog here
