Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day has been a good one. I did not have to cook anything today, we just went an ate with my mother-in-law Judy Garner. 
Great food not the best picture but it was delicious.

I also crochet a sashay scarf. I think it was a pretty good for my first try. 


I also made some cute wooden snowmen ornaments These were fun.

 I also finished my grapevine wreath. I added some pine cones, red berries and a country bow. I found this idea on pinterest as well as the others. 
I bought me a piece of flannel for a tree skirt I was thinking I would have loved to had some of my dads red flannel shirts to have made one. I love this one with the burlap garland. I put up one more tree 
I love the little white pot. Frank and I found it in the woods. 
Well Thanksgiving has been good at my house. Clay was upset because he wanted a present but he was patient waiting to see if he would get on at mamaw's house. When he had enough waiting to see if he was going to get a present he was ready to go home. He is so rotten. I am so thankful that God picked me to give these two special young men to. I have cried and asked why many times and on days that Fragile X hits our family hard, but in the end I love them with all my heart and would not change a thing about them. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  2. Thank you, I have crochet a scarf before but not this kind. I made a whole set one time a hat, scarf and mittens. I like to crochet but at my house you have a lot of mistakes because you have to count stitches and there is always someone talking to you or wanting something at my house. Love you to.
