Tiffany's shower is tomorrow, and I finally finished her gifts! (Tiffany was a kindergarten teacher at our school for the past two years, and I was her mentor.) The beaded crocheted bag is one of my favorite gifts for brides. It's from Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet, published by Leisure Arts. I made the bag before I broke my arm, so that was the first thing done, except for the drawstring, which I finished today. I made the hanky with tatted edging after my cast came off. The pillow didn't turn out the way I wanted, but that's what I get for waiting 'til the last minute!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
