Snails, Nails and Puppy dog tails and Boas!!?

Oh my!  What one does for a Grandchild.  Davey spent 2 days with us as school was out for the Spring break.  Wow!  Did we have fun!  Reptile Land below Williamsport and then to Borders as Gramps tried out golf clubs.   Dinosaur books are more fun soooo....we got a book. Memories made for all.

Easter Saturday

Happy Easter!  Not forgetting what the holiday is about but looking at it from a child's point of view, I have decorated.

The Grandkids are coming and I want them to remember the holidays at this Gramma's House.  That is the only reason I decorate anymore.  My Hubby wouldn't care and as for myself, my memories suffice. 
Hoping your childhood memories bring you joy.

Reliving my Childhood

Aahhh, Sisterhood!  I had a milestone BD recently-actually 1/2 yr. ago.  Being able to share time with my sister brought back so many memories.  Her gift of a basket with nostalgic items got me thinking and E-Baying.   The result is additions to my 'toy family'.  Here they are.

If you are as old as I am you may know these ladies as Ginny dolls.  Our little blondie has the bent knees, just like the ones Jane and I owned.  But, I could not resist the dark haired beauties.  And the price was right.I am now awaiting a CD with patterns so these ladies will have a wardrobe.  Just like the one my Mom (Mrs. Santa) sewed for us so long ago.  Jane and I both have Grandgirls.  I just hope they like having an 8" Ginny as much as we did.

Trying again.

Once again, I am trying to blog.  I have enjoyed other's blogs but really never feel I have anything to share.  No words of wisdom or nifty things I have tried.  BUT, here it goes.
I finished a sock!  Yes, one sock.  By means of a sock loom and a hank of yarn, I now own a homecrafted sock.  Too bad that I have 2 feet.  This sock is cute.  Pretty one might even say.  Especially since I used a self-patterning yarn.  It is soft and pretty.  (SEE below)

But, I need to have webbed toes on my one sock. You see well--take a look. See what I mean.  I haven't done the toe seam as of yet..but. 
Oh, that is the sock loom and hook.  I think I will try again. Have any ideas as to what I might do with one sock that needs a web-toed foot?
