In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Granny Bees

I thought I'd show you some pics of things that some of the talented women I hang with have made. This group is known as The Granny Bees.

This cable knit sweater was a work in progress when I took this pic, but it's now done.

Blog stalker Beth P. can finish a project like this in a few days. Rumor is she can knit in the dark.

knitted lamb with shawl...I want a shawl like that! I believe BP made this too.

fingerless mitts - RJ were those yours?

Then, last week on Wednesday and Thursday, Ali Strebel came to our town and taught a rug hooking class including several applique' techniques. I didn't take the class, but I stopped by to say hi and visit a bit. This was one of the pattern choices. I didn't get a pic of the other one, or the completed projects...did anyone complete them?

And these are some of the rug hooking and applique' projects that these women brought for show and tell.

This is something I made...

No silly, not the whole thing...just this little scrabble bunny tile. (calm down Blog Stalker KE...I wasn't going to take credit for your bunny!)

Talented ladies, huh?

  1. Wow! I love the bunnies, havest rug and pillows. Time for a grannie bee esty shop!

  2. I think these gals need me to be BFFs with... They are soooo talented and surely can only make so many things for their loved ones...if any of them (especially the quilter or the cable knit sweater maker) need a new BFF to give these beautiful treasures to I am so available :)
    maybe Hubby & I should move to K... :)

  3. What???! no fuzzy as in dryer lint red hats with a beer can base? Doesnt ANYONE have that pattern? awww good crazylady art is wasted on the talented...;p LOL

    Love the rugs - I would hate to use them so as not to get the ruined - and yes, your tile def. completes the bunny...and i think Beth P. has made some knitting soul swapping deals somewhere - that knitting is GORGEOUS!

  4. Dear blog friend,
    I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
    This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
    Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
    If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
    I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
    Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.

  5. It seems my pale yellow and pink handwarmers have caught on across the blogdom

  6. OH..........mine are cuter and better made though
