No. 1 - have heard his name for years; didn't know it started with a "D". Now I do. Thanks for that.

No. 2 - his technical ability is just jaw-dropping. Ditto the percussion man. Put them all together and it's eye-popping, ear-pleasing.

It looks as though they're having a blast - hope you do too at your gigs.
Glad you like it. That isn't Django himself. He is a tribute artist. We have lots of fun when we play.

Made this today. Needed my pouring pot back.
These are Sealed wax decorative bottles. I was just messing around. Felt a little creative.




Lit up with a tea light behind the bottle. Lights out.

OK - I'm one step closer. To Do List: (1) Google Django; (2) Push myself into the 21st Century.

Butterflies and Ladybugs

I found adorable butterfly and ladybug buttons at Walmart today! I’ve been using the ladybug buttons I bought months ago on the sunflower crochet coasters.

The butterflies are the same size and each one is a different color.

The colors are vivid.

1 Medium purple with neon green body
2 Hot pink with fuscia body
3 Neon orange wings with neon and purple body
4 Yellow wings with orange body
5 Peacock - tuquoise blue all over
6 Neon green wings and lighter green body

They’re whimsical.

Now I can work on making “coasters” for each of my houseplants using some of the yarn I already had that match the quilt patterned pillow shams I bought.

I also started a new table runner using an old stitch that I haven’t used in a long time.

Using the first color, I crochet 8 rows of single crochet. Using the second color, I stitch over the previous color with the first row of the new color.

The first stitch is normal, the second stitch goes down 1 row of the first color and pulling the yarn up. The next stitch, down 2 rows, then 3, etc.

Then 8 more rows of single crochet and add new color, repeat.

The result is the new color in a arrow shaped pattern highlighted against the previous color.

This one is maybe 14 inches wide, so it’s coming along quickly. I got some peacock blue yarn yesterday, so that’s going to go after the light yellow that is next.

That's just beautiful, Babe. That ought to keep you busy for awhile. Very complicated. I'm sure she will just love it.

i looked at the directions and it doesn't seem all that hard. i have never sewn on the kind of fabric, it calls for. but we certainly give it the old college try. the fabric is on sale. great price! i have a forty percent off coupon and two micheals coupons that joann honors. i guess you saw the price of the pattern. can't beat that. they do have mccalls on sale for 99 cents, i called, said they don't have that one. did i say i have til sept. to finish? lots of time, but you know me, won't take that long. thanks for the encouragement.

Babe

That dress is adorable.

She is a very lucky little lady!

It's all about making memories, for both of you.

Thanks for sharing.
