I haven't crocheted in years but I wanted a crocheted trim so I tried a sample of a free pattern I found online. I think I need some more practice, but it is a pretty pattern. I also have been trying to make folded paper snowflake but it is hard, so I may not continue that project :) Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

My cross stitching was delayed because I found a new project that I had to try..Bitty Booties. I found this design by Heather Bailey on her website ...www.HellomynameisHeather.com. These are the first two I have tried and I just love them. I am going to use them for Christmas gifts and put some sort of goodies inside them. I think they would be cute as a tree ornament too. I would love to find a pattern for ballet slippers.

I have been enjoying reading everyone's blogs and seeing all your great projects. I wanted to share my favorite project I did many years ago. My pictures don't show the pretty beads too well. The first photo is the cover of the pattern book. I haven't stitched in a while, but all your lovely blogs have made me get all my supplies out and I hope to finish some ongoing projects...that is if I can stop looking at all your fabulous blogs!

I just wanted to share a painting I love by James Whistler. This is "Nocturne in Pink and Grey, Portrait of Lady Meux..1881-82. The way he painted the material in the dress is beautiful..I just love everything about this painting. You may know Whistler by his famous painting of his mother.
