Barbies, Books & More

Boy, I've been fighting with resizing pics & getting them uploaded for days now......Grrrrrrr!
-Day 154-
A picture of Alli's Barbie bedroom. I tell ya...this child is SO creative!! First of all, she made the little curtains by inserting a popsicle stick in a slotted space, took scraps of white fabric & stitched a casing for the stick, then tied them back with some yarn. She made the bed too & the little pillows. If you look closely, that's not print fabric, but some of the same white used for the curtains....she just DREW the design on there with sharpie markers & then stitched the pillows & stuffed with fiber fill. I crocheted the bed spread for her. She even designs her own Barbie clothes! I'll have to scan & share some of the designs she's drawn's really something else for a 10 yr. old to be doing....I mean she has details down to the neck & underarm measurements, etc. It's really quite impressive! ;-)-Day 153-
Don't even ask......this picture kept giving me fits & I couldn't figure out why until just a minute ago........I guess it never got resized & so it wasn't uploading to blogger. Anyway....I wasn't going back to resize it'll just have to live without it. It was just a picture of my latest crochet project that I started this past week.
-Day 152-
This is Alli's *new* hand-me-down camera & it didn't have a wrist I crocheted her one. Thought it turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. I also crocheted her a camera case too. She picked out the colors....the case is brown & turquoise stripes.

-Day 151-
Just some wild flowers that I picked on our evening walk. Don't you just love that little bottle I have them in? I picked that up for just some change at Good Will.

-Day 150-
Some of my summer reading
Let's see, the first one...The Power of a Woman's Words by Sharon Jaynes....well, y'all should know by now, that I've finished that one & LOVED it & would highly reccomend it!!
Miley Cyrus: Miles To Go...Ashley read this one first & said it was a very quick read....I just started on it yesterday...haven't gotten too far into it yet.
The Courtship of the Vicar's Daughter by Lawana Blackwell...finished this one just this was the second in the Gresham Chronicles series.....Really good books...I've enjoyed these!
The Courtship by Gilbert Morris....this one is still on my 'To Read''s the third book in the Singing River series....the first two were good, so I'm sure this one will be too.
This Side of Heaven by Karen Kingsbury....this is my first ever Karen Kingsbury book & I'm on ch. 14...a smidge over halfway through....excellent so far....will definitely read more of hers!
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs....Haven't even really started this one yet.....just a few pages in, so I can't really say.....we'll see.
And last of all, Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons.....Well, let's just say that I gave up on this one & took it back. I have too many other GOOD books on my 'To Read' list to waste time on that one.

-Day 149-
Storm clouds on my way home from town....heading north on the 29 by-pass

Your entire family is so creative, I can't wait to see what any one of you is creating next. The Barbie house touches are incredible.
