Eli Manning Puppet

Since I couldn't figure out how to get the picture of the puppet on the last post, I'm doing a post just so that you can see Ben's puppet. Ben's teacher was very pleased with his report and also with the puppet.

Ben's Robe and a puppet

Ben, our grandson is a big New York Giants fan and I was lucky enough to find a piece of fleece to make him a robe. You can see how proud he is to wear a robe that represents his favorite team. Several weeks ago, Ben had to do a bookreport on a person and he chose Eli Manning a player for the Giants. The report was to be given orally with a puppet. After a lot of discussion, we came up with this puppet. I loved helping Ben with this assignment because it was so much fun to color the face, a skill that I want to improve so that I can make cloth dolls.

Baby Shower Gifts

When our daughter told my husband and me that she was pregnant, I couldn't wait to start making things for our new grandchild. Figuring out what to make was lots of fun. While relaxing in the evening, I crocheted a large granny square blanket from gray, pink, and white yarn and crocheted several hats. During the day, I made the "E" for Emily picture, the rabbit, and the smocked dress and diaper cover. Somehow, I don't have pictures of everything but will get the ones I'm missing when I have a chance.
