I am so pleased with myself. This is ornament #4 - that's a record for me!! I have one more that I need to do some french knots and it will be ready to finish.
Matter of fact, just looking at this, it could stay out all winter. We have tons of deer here. I almost hit 3 the other night coming home after dark. Fortunately, they turned and ran the other way as my car got closer.

The rules are simple. To the first 3 people who post a comment to this post, I will make you a lovely handmade gift each. But, you have to have a blog yourself, and be willing to pass the 'pay it forward' concept on. So you will then have to put it on your blog and make three gifts for other people. Let's spread some happiness and have some fun! The rules state that I have 365 days to make a gift and send it to you. I'm more than happy to send something internationally - so everyone can be involved!!
What better way for everyone to join hands around the globe and share our crafty goodness!!!So... get typing, leave a comment and even if you aren't in the first three... it doesn't hurt to start your own chain of PIF's!!
What do you say? Still room for 1 more!!

If I could stick with one craft project, I might make more progress. I also did some knitting this morning. I can hear the sewing machine calling my name. *sigh* Too many projects, too little time. These people I live with think I should cook, clean, talk to them, give them hugs and kisses; they just don't understand.

I have often wondered what my decorating style would be called (if I had one). Today, I found a site that is all me! It is my colors and my style. I am Country Cottage. This does not surprise me since I live in the country and in a cottage! But seriously, it is what I like. The colors, the furniture, the comfort, etc....
This wooden dough bowl belonged to my grandmother. I have it filled with yarn balls. The cats, surprisingly, leave these balls alone. This is not to say that we have not had a few yarn balls unrolled all over the house!
Country Cottage Decorating is definitely not a stuffy or formal look. It is a warm and inviting look.
