When the Garden Dies...

When the weather turns cold and my gardens are shriveled and brown, my hands turn to crafting instead of digging, pruning and watering.

Over the past month I have done a few projects here and there and I have a few more I really would like to accomplish, but so far this is what I've done...

~A poofy, variegated tutu for Lauren.


~A couple more little boy ear flap hats, Christmas stars (you can find the pattern here), crochet flowers to decorate my bulletin board (find pattern here), and a mug cozy for my endless cups of tea and coffee!


~And finally I got around to covering the lampshades in my bedroom.  They were in desperate need of a pick me up!


Now, its on to a few more crochet projects, another covering of a much needed object and finishing of a couple projects I started last spring!

*Thank you so much for the comments you left for me.  I am feeling much better.


Oh and one last picture to show you my new teen who just keeps growing and growing  (I am 5' 6")!



  1. I love tutu's - all your things are sooo cute!

  2. Jenny, I love the lamp shade redo. It looks so elegant with the new look. Did you use paper or fabric for this? Very nice!

  3. Tracie, I used a cotton fabric and satin ribbon to recover this. I was really pleased how it turned out. It is much better than the plain/old lamp shade.

  4. isn't it crazy how fast they grow?!

    i love the hats with the ear flaps...adorable!

    have a blessed week~

  5. love it all. you are, indeed, one crafty mama! wish i could crochet some cute hats for my girls. i'm impressed, jenn! great job!

  6. Love your stuff! Might have to have you make me an ear flap hat for next winter for you know who.

  7. I have a crazily growing teenage son as well Jenn!! I am nearly 5' 11" and he is catching up and will soon pass me!! EEEEK!!!

    I have enjoyed my "catch up" visit have blessed me with your devotional thoughts as well. God is SO WONDERFUL!! Isn't His WORD a delight?? I'm particularly fond of Psalm 91...blessings upon blessings!

    In Him,
