FUN MONDAY - I made it myself.


Our lovely and talented host for this week is karismaskids.
The topic for Fun Monday this week is......I MADE IT MYSELF!
I think the title pretty much says it all, but for those of you who may still be wondering, I would like to see or hear about things you have made with your own two hands (or feet, Im not fussy!) We all have different talents and abilities, maybe you like to sew or knit, chisel or sculpt, draw or paint? Whatever your talent is, please share it with us this week.Da Rules.....Well there are not any really! But you know, we all know that you made your kids so lets NOT choose them this time. (After all you did not make them with your hands or feet did you?)Well as I sit here at an old oak table that hasn’t a nail anywhere in it, that was stripped and finished by my mother and me when I was in High school looking at my gnarled and scared hands thinking back on what all they have made.
A little of this and some of that but sadly no pictures, pretty much ran the gambit for potholder to help building a home. So to be sporting here is a picture of a Doll one of the Grand children gave my mom, (yep she quilted and so did everyone who visited).


Thanks for stopping by and, please visit the other handy posts for FUN MONDAY

I bet that desk is still as beautiful today as it was when you first completed the project. And I bet your scarred hands healed.

Well, the doll is just beautiful, and I bet your desk and hands are as well! Thanks for joining in!

Love and Light

This doll was so intriguing I had to embiggen it! How old is it? And, did you inherit any of the lovely quilts?

I bet that table is gorgeous, and I love the doll.

Pamela said...

reminds me that I have done many things with my hands over the years (like strip and varnish --etc)

I've never quilted, tho. Amazing little doll - I bet your mother was blessed.

I just love "pieces" like this. So many memories attached to them.

I missed your last week's Fun Monday. The doll is cute although I am intrigued by the oak table.
