Little Lucy

Little Lucy is a precious third cousin of mine. She's very sweet, smart and knows what she wants ... at the age of three. haha Her daddy is a military man. He was recently injured and is in Walter Reed.  He is expected to make a great recovery but it's still a stressful time for them all. Please keep them in your prayers.

Little Lucy is also quite the performer. She loves to dance and wear princess dresses and fancy dance costumes. I came across the perfect book for her: Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet. I love sending her books. I crocheted a bookmark I thought was fitting. It looks like pastel shells. I hope she likes it.

Queen Anne's Lace Scarf

This is my first blog post using blogger. I have another blog called From My Left Hand. I've used it for a while but I've always wanted to use blogger. It just took a bit for me to get here. :-) The title for the other blog refers to the crafts I make and I'm left-handed.

Here's a little something I'm working on right now. I got a hankerin' to crochet. A friend's 4-year-old daughter loves to wear neck scarves. I've knitted several for her and she wears them when it's 0 degrees and when it's 90 degrees. haha I found a crochet pattern called Queen Anne's Lace Scarf and a skein of lilac J&P Coats LusterSheen that I've had for many years. I'll have the recipient model it but for now Miss Cleo will model it. She doesn't mind as long as I don't wake her to get the shot.
