Hello All!!!

I wanted to send out a Friday hello to everyone!!  I also thought I would show you what I've been working on.  I don't want to make this a sad post, but my dear friend, Paulie, was in hospice and did pass away on the 13th.  I have been so sad and weepy since I first saw him in hospice.  My solace is that he is no longer suffering.  Even though I will miss him.  

So, to keep my mind occupied, I've been working on snowmen.  I finished two more and managed to take some pix when we actually had a bit of sun.

I crocheted the hat and scarf for the first fella; the second one is "skating" on his own wee pond!!

I think they turned out rather cute.  I am working on a small one that I plan to make into an ornament.  I'm also working on an ELF.  I decided to follow my own idea to make him look more like my daughter's favorite Elf, Buddy.  I will post pix when I finish him!!  I keep getting different ideas, but must finish first things first!!!  I also have some gift giving items to make.  I will keep busy as I can!!!!

Here's the ornament fella.  I haven't even cut his legs out yet!!  LOL

On a much happier note - I have to commend all of the Ladies who recently participated in Meri's fun wreath-making party.  All of the wreaths are gorgeous and should be considered heirlooms to be!!  Meri has pix of them on her blog ImagiMeri's.  I think you will enjoy taking a peek.  It's good inspiration for me because I would love to make one myself.  I bought lots of goodies to make one last year, but never did.  So...maybe this year!!!!  *Smiles*  

Wishing everyone a great weekend.  I hope the weather is nice and the sun is out!  Oh, and one more thing ... I gave Johnny a bath today.  It's always interesting bathing a cat!  LOL  After my shower I had a bath!!!  But she smells good and cleaned up really nice!

Til next time ...
