Lacey Shell Fingerless Gloves



I have another Christmas present to share with you. My SIL asked me to make her some fingerless gloves. She sent me some pictures of different ones she liked on Pinterest. From those pictures I gathered that she wanted some that had a cuff and had an interesting element to them. With that in mind I made some fingerless gloves with my own flare.

As you know lace is my favorite. But it is not really practical in the winter when you want to stay warm. I thought why not add layers. I picked bold colors to really show off the lace.

Messenger Envelope Tablet Case


 A Free Crochet Pattern

I am always in a conundrum when it comes to making gifts for the guys in my life. I'm usually so lost in finding things manly enough for them. One year I made golf club covers and those ended up being a pretty big hit. This year I went with blankets for most of the guys. I made an apron for my dad to use while he was painting or woodworking. That left me with my husband.

He had been nagging me to make a pattern that had to do with carrying a tablet. So I went to town and came up with the tablet case
