Weighing Matters

my journey to b.e.t.t.e.r

to Blythe; please take note

This hat is so stinking cute! I saw it at our big craft fair in early December and bought it for Mikelle. But I really couldn’t part with it so I told Mikelle it was too small for her. Then boyfriend, Logan, stretched it on his head and proved me wrong. I still want to hang onto it so that Blythe can copy the pattern and make a couple in her crocheting classes. She’s pretty creative and I figure with her imagination and Amy’s skilled teaching, the two of them can come up with something very similar.

It’s got this little asymmetrical flap-like thing in the front with a huge expensive button that adds enough character to make the whole headdress whimsical perfection. I love it.

Blythe, I’ll supply the buttons if you can figure this out and make me a couple!

Love, Gma

shear delightful

I’ve been so excited about my new shears in the bedroom. After ordering 12 sets from JC Penny catalog, I finally decided on the gold and cream together, alternating. I love the effect of ‘stripes.’ And they go perfectly with my striped spread and throw. Just what I needed for a mid-winter pick-me-up.  Love, love, love them! I love the sun shining through in the afternoon.

I was going to go with five different-colored shears matching the spread. I had three colors of red/burgundy/pink, three greens, three dark and medium blues and three neutral colors. But it was really too much! I tried them in different combinations but went with the lighter two and love the effect!
