These are awesome! They are actual rabbit skin stitched into a pompom for use atop your hat. They have an elastic loop on the back. You sew a permanent button atop your hat, and then hook your pompom onto the button. Then you can easily remove it when you need to launder the hat.

David and Liz leave on their honeymoon on Sunday and their two kitties are coming to Grandma Nelson's house. I plan on taking one of the pompoms home to see if it makes a good cat toy. They are $8.75 each and I have four colors.

In addition, we have wee white acrylic pompoms for sewing onto rabbit sweaters and hats as bunny butts. These are only $0.60. 

I am holding everything cradled in my hand so that you can see the relative size.


That probably sounded better than "Chicken Dinner". Don't forget that I grew up on a dairy farm where pretty much everything was edible.

This charmer is from Patt Large of Pajamas and Chocolate and is $189.00. She is stitch painted on 18 count mono canvas and the design size is 10.75 by 9 inches.

I have chicken needleminders too, just in case!

I have a special treat for the cross stitch contingent! Patti of SamSarah has put several designs on the black click totes and the little black zippered bags and we have the totes and the zips from Walker Bags. Walker bags are proudly made in the USA!


There is nothing like a beautiful bride. Note her jubilation in the second picture!

 This was certainly a wonderful reason to
gather. My mother came from MN, my sister from IL, sister-in-law from CT, nephews from CT and NV. David had friends from Concord Carlisle HS, his military friends, and because both Liz and Dave graduated from U of ME, there was a flood of friends from there.

Liz's mother is one of five sisters, all of whom were there with their familes, and her father's two brothers and their families attended. We had TX, GA, SC, KS, and CT contingents.

I have lots more pictures to share if you want to stop in.

It was exciting and we were exhausted.
I think I have recovered now.
