Playing Games and Crafting

                                                                                       Has it been a long winter or what! I usually like this time of year but it not my favorite anymore. Sweating and mosquitoes don't really sound fun either. Anyway I have been making Valentine tags and crocheting jewelry.

 I have been spending a lot of time playing games with the kids and grand kids. I love both of these games.

Through a friend were I work, I bought these awesome doilies and tablecloth.

And of course last, but not least, another knitted scarf. I am on my way to Tucson next week to the "gem show." I bet more jewelry making is in my future.

 They say "variety" is the spice of life. I had enough variety this past week. I started out trying to crochet with wire. My mom taught me to crochet when I was around 7 or 8. So I thought it would be easy. It was "trickier" than I thought. However I did finish two braclets. Orders anyone?? Just kidding.

I dropped that crochet hook and decided to get out the wax paper. I folder and then did some sewing. Used some old fabric, adding a couple embellishments. No I am not opening an "etsy" shop!!

 Valentine "clip art" was brought out next. I arranged it in a nice pile, took a picture and then........
Went to the kitchen to try and finish my "red scarf"......I think there is something seriously wrong with me. Hey I think I still have some "play dough".
