Good Sunday morning Blogsters! I am coming to you from the sofa, sitting in front of a "Jesse Stone" movie, and let me tell ya...Tom Selleck definitely has his game on! It is cold and rainy outside, so I'm thinking a day in the pj's may be in order!! My knitting is to the right of me, my knitting bag to the left of I have all my needs taken care of!

I would love to share some more Christmas photos with you!

The wreath is on the front door to greet you as you come come on in!

With a special Christmas wish to all, "Peace"....

Now have a seat and put your feet up, enjoy the tree...

Phoebe loves Christmas Company!!

Here is a special ornament I would love to share with you all!
Made by my sister, with beads and perforated paper.
It is a tiny work of art!

Hootie Owl sets atop my tree every year!!!


Friday I took a vacation day from work and spent it with my folks. We did a little Christmas shopping, had some lunch, and relaxed a bit! It was great. I carried my camera in tow, because Mom has some beautiful crochet afghans and pillows that I find quite beautiful! I wanted you all to have a chance to see them!

Looky!!! These afghans were done my my grandmas! I love the ripple. I usually end up snuggled up beneath it every time I go over to mom's!

I would really like to take a crack at making that round pillow. I think the pattern is called "Jacob's Ladder". I am thinking my bed needs some crocheted pillows to dress it up and make it cozy...this would be perfect! Anyone know where I could find the pattern????

When leaving my mom's on Friday she handed me a sock monkey and asked if I could dress him up with a hat and scarf. OF COURSE I COULD! I was chompin' at the bit to get started on it...finished it that night. Now I ask cute is this little guy?

An instant smile comes to my face when I look at him! He has spent the last couple of days with me, I do think he has enjoyed his time with us!

He was a bit laid back!!

And got a bit wild! He was even dancing at one point! LOL

So it's back to mom's where he will be made to behave! I had so much making his little hat and scarf that I will be making one for my sock monkey!!! I think my sock monkey is a a skirt will also be needed for her! Naked monkeys tend to get naughty!!!

THE SNOWMAN WORKSHOP is still in full mode! I have finished a couple more and have another on the needles!
Ain't he cute?

And this guy? That little hat is killin me!

I am so happy I jumped into the snowman world! And I am really gonna miss these little guys when they get sent off to their destinations!!!! I have more to be made, so I am hoping do that today...perfect, Christmas movies, nasty weather, and being warm and cozy making snowmen!!! Sounds like a perfect Sunday to me!!!!

I promise I will be back in a couple days with more stuff to share! I love this time of's packed full of fun stuff to get done!

TA-TA for now!

The stuff your grandmothers made are beautiful! well, it is easy to see where you got the talent! and the snowmen are just adorable! the sock monkey is just my type of monkey! do you think he would like to be my friend?

Aw! and the owl!!! I love the way it looks in the tree! no need to worry about the mice stealing the candy from the stockings!!!

Thanks for the lovely invitation! I've enjoyed my time with you in your cozy place with all your cozy friends and your sweet little dog! Love your mom's crocheted things. I have a ripple afghan made by my aunt as a wedding gift in sunset colors and blues which is so cozy. That round pillow does look like it was done with Jacob's ladder. I did a tutorial on that using a scarf as my sample and it turned out great. It's a fun stitch to finish up, knitting the bars up the middle to make the braid.

Your tree is just lovely too! Thanks for the visit!
