Hi--I am Miss Gracie--
and I have a story to tell you tonight!!
My mom decided that as it was so cold and snowy--
that she needed to do something to remember this winter--
so she took this--
ball of warm -- off white yarn and these tiny short wood needles--
and guess what she made with them???
Two cute snow ladies--
Hey gals--that is the wrong direction--
you can't trust a snowpersons directions--remember???
that's better girls--
but can you come alittle closer????
OK--now this is better!!!
see how cute these came out--
and you know my Mom--she has to change things alittle from the patterns--
here she made a shawl type bonnet instead of just the bonnet--
and she added cute buttons to each one instead of black yarn knots--
and the noses -- she said there was NO way she was gonna attempt the pattern ones--besides she really did not care for them--
then she remembered she had some painted wood ones left over from another project couple years ago--
She had taken little wood Christmas bulb shapes and painted them orange and used them for noses and after looking for them awhile (she is very organized now--only she can't remember "where" she organized everything tooooo!!!)
but she did find them and she said they where worth the "hunt"!!!
(me -- if I am going to go hunting--I would much rather hunt for something "alive"--like a mouse!!!!)
and here is the original picture--
Next year or when ever she may make some of the smaller ones--
she said these are fairly easy to make--unless--
unless -- you have a "fur" ball who likes to eat the yarn as she knits--
now I have no idea whom she is talking about here!!?????
And she said to tell you to be sure to read yesterday's post--
she is still waiting on some more places to visit--
so far she is going to Florida--California, and Maryland!!!!
Ok I 'bestest' go for now--
I have to get to her chair before she does---
it's a game we like to play!!!!!
