napkin Flowers

I have made 70 of these napkin flowers for the Tea Party....I thought they would be fun to work with in the decorating of the Hall. I learn how to do these when I was about 9 years old while a cousin was getting married. We decorated the car in white flowers, I never forgot how to make them. And since we have more napkins than we need, this seemed like a fun thing to do. I used yarn with sparkling silver running through on picture to see the details.

The Chair

My husband Arney is having surgery June 1st on his knee. He has had the knee about 10 years. He has a cyst on the bone, so they will go in and repair and put new bone in. He will be off work up to 12 weeks. He is unhappy that this must be done this time of year. But he is in so much pain. I have never owned a recliner, never wanted one. But I thought it would be good for Arney during this time of healing. I ask him if he wanted one and he said no that he didn't want to spend the money on a new chair. Remember the word "NEW." So I went on craiglist and did a search, most of them looked awful, I thought it was a lost cause when I found a picture of this chair. And the seller lived about 2 miles from me....I sent the owner a note asking about the chair and to see if she still had it....Bingo! So I went to look at it and bought it for 50 dollars. It is soft comfortable leather...You can tell he has been sitting in it. I got it Sunday while he was at work. My son Trevor picked it up for me just before Arney got home. He has taken ownership and has had two naps in it. I love the color of the leather, it is well made, and leather seems to look and feel better with a little age. I thought it was a really good buy...she wanted 60 but I got it for the 50 dollars...TEE HEE!

Little felt Bears

Just when you think you are done, then you get another idea. These are out of pink felt, so easy to sew. Today was a meeting to see if we were all on the same page, and this afternoon I helped my Co Person with her addition to the evening. I would love to say I am done, but I have 7 days till the Tea party, anything is possible. I made little Boa's for the felt Bears, something a little different. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
