It took me a week to make this


But so love this Christmas tree pattern  from  "The Crochet Crowd",  I have done a smaller one in green, but decided I wanted to go bigger  and teal  so found this pretty yarn at Hobby Lobby  and thought this is it.

Not Knit or Crochet scarves



These are sewn on the sewing machine.  After carefully going thru fibers  and laying them out on a wash away  fabric stabilizer   ,  they are taken to the sewing machine and sewed with metallic thread's.  Once sewing is complete, you wash the stabilizer out  and hang to dry.

Would you buy yarn for one dollar a skein?


I know I would, yet  I have posted this on Craig's list 4 times  and just don't get it,and occasional email but then they don't follow thru. I think it is time for it  to go to my shops.

I know have 4 ufo's in progress, a weaving project, 2 crochet projects and a knit project,  I think I need to get them finished  and the photographed, and I also need to do better on this blog thing too

Some decorative sewing


Was going thru some of my handmade treasures today and found some things I had made a while back.  I had two fabric postcards I had made, the one with the fish needs to be finished  and then a fiber scarf that I sewed instead of knitting it or crocheting it. Really need a better picture of the scarf though

Watching my granny change daily

My granny has always been a part of my life. As a little girl we grew up living next door to her  and then as we got older just a street over.  So many wonderful memories.
She is now 98 years old  and she is so feeble and sickly that it is so hard seeing her this way as she has always been a very independent woman. Up till a few years ago it was nothing to see her outside mowing her yard or raking leaves  and seeing laundry on the clothes line.  Every Sunday she was at church until she became unable to attend.

Now my mom is a real trooper as she has been living with granny since my daddy passed away 4 and 1/2 years ago and helping to take care of her.  In the past few months we have really watched a decline in my granny's health  as her appetite declined so badly that she now weighs 76 lbs  and that was a couple of weeks ago so probally less now.   She is completley bed ridden  and has to be feed  and changed. getting her to eat at this point is a very hard task. We might be able to get a little oatmeal in her or perhaps 1/2 a bannana or maybe a little doughnut.

The granny I am seeing now is so different than the granny I grew up with.  We now have Hospice coming in to help with certain things  and have has to reassure granny that no she does not have cancer.  My mom does everything for her and I help as much as I can.  It was a sad terrible thing to watch my daddy in his last days suffering with cancer and this is just as sad although she doesn't have cancer  she has just got old.

 Instructions:

You tweet the item(s) for me and all the posts above yours, along with your twitter account so we can follow you, and list 1-2 items (clickable links) from any of your online shops that you would like for all those posting here to tweet for you. No more than two items, please. ( No "mature" items, please). Be sure the item is twitter ready. (See below) Check back throughout the day and tweet all the new items posted from other online shops. Etsy, ArtFire, Zibbet, Bonanzle, ebay, your own website, etc..  Retweet our hashtag during the evening hours. Spread your tweets out so that people will click on the links.




Please add our NEW tag to your tweets. "#RETWT" This way we can Retweet later in the day, simply by searching the hash tag. We are not using "Bluebird" any longer. Thanks!



Limit of two (2) hashtags.

Some hashtags are automatic, and so to explain...

Example:

Here's what appears when I click "tweet" on an item:

Knit Lip Balm Lipstick pouch Black | ChristieCottage - Knitting on ArtFire... #handmade #artfire http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/3935206

 Here's the acceptable post for this item:

Knit Lip Balm Lipstick pouch Black @ChristieCottage #handmade #artfire http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/3935206 #AFPP  #RETWT

By reaching out thru blogger and blog follower's twitter accounts, we will reach a new audience of viewers and hopefully land some sales. After all, we all have our online shops to make sales.

Tweet the blog link hosting the Twitter Tree© each day to get more participants. If benefits all of us.

Invite your friends!
