More flower pins..............

Da Garden

These flowers were crocheted with size 3 and10 thread as well as worsted weight yarn. Most have pins on the back for wearing on clothing, etc.

Garden Salad

Buying Peaches and Creme's cotton on a cone (mulitcolored yarn) inspired this hat.

Pretty in Pink

The pink yarn in from Bernat's Glow in the Dark line. This hat was crocheted for my Great Grand-Daughter.....Ari.


Lovin' the feel and look of cotton by Peaches and Creme. This company offers many colors and at reasonable prices. I buy this cotton yarn from AC Moore, Walmart (on cones) and Michaels.

Olive Grove

This hat was completed in 100% cotton from Peaches and Creme and Lion Brand.

In Honor of my Best Friend GERALDINE

    Geraldine was one of three of my Best Friends. She was a plain and honest character who loved who she loved. Her remarkable ability to be a friend to many caused her to be a confidant to hundreds. Her quiet and sometimes forciful manner influenced hundreds of Hempstead's children.
     Geraldine went to be with the LORD on January 17, 2010. I miss her very much. She was my cheerleader and I was hers. We were fellow crafters, readers and warriors. Gerri knew much about the people of our community and could settle disputes quietly and quickly. It was never about her; it was about all.
    This doll I completed recently was to be given to her even though I told her it wasn't, but she knew better. However, she passed before I could surprise her with it.
     I named her Gerri-Ann in honor of Geraldine and Ann, my Mother. Since my Best Friend is no longer here in the physical I gave Gerri-Ann to Gerri's precious niece.
