I love taking a walk in the early morning. You can hear the birds waking up and see the morning dew on the leaves and grass. Just a wonderful and peaceful time to walk. One morning, recently, I opened the front door to go for my walk. I was so excited, because I could walk, the sun was out and rain had stopped.
Wow! Was the sun out! Look at the gorgeous view I saw as I opened the front door. Thanks to the UPS Store guy for this great photo, from a 6 foot perspective as opposed to a 5 foot perspective. :) Off I walked into the gorgeous sun and the beginnings of fall. Yup, November in north Texas, we still have leaves on trees.
Here is my little Gingerbread man doll. I really like him, he makes me smile everytime I look at him. He was a lot of fun to design and make. He stands 7 1/2 inches tall and wears a great vest. It is hard to see in this picture, but he has white embroidery around his entire body edge.
Then if that wasn't enough. I thought about Sugar Cookie! Here is Gingerbread man's friend, Sugar Cookie. Talk about fun, I love this cookie. Calorie free and oh, so sweet. Sugar Cookie wanted you to see that their vests can come off, so they can wear other colors.
Back in September, when I visited my mom in New York, I took a picture of this exquisite doily. This doily was crocheted by my grandmother or my great aunt. We aren't sure which one. They both made hundreds. I am serious. When we were going through my grandmother's doilies years ago we had....... I didn't count. :) I really loved this doily and wanted to share it with you. It was crocheted on a very small steel crochet hook, probably an 11 or 12, using a fine cotton thread. I was enamored with how it was made, of course. I always have to figure that out. If you can see it, there are 7 pieces made separately and then attached. When attached they form that center swirl. Separately, they are all a small swirl.
