Banner day~

Well I have finally finished the banner for over my grandkids baby crib in the nursery at my house for when they need a nap whenever I babysit them. It reads...I used some shaggy yarn that is so popular-- yet soooooooo hard to crochet with (at least for me) One of my girlfriends uses this yarn all the time but combines it with regular yarn, so I did the same with fabulous results! I crocheted a long chain and hung the banner from that, with some of the stringy/shaggy yarn hanging between each pennant. Love-love-love how it looks! Here is a close up of one of two fabric flowers I made. I had originally made 10 flowers for the banner but decided they were to big to use all 10.Here is a long view of the banner... I really like it, it looks like a celebration! Ehhhhhhh gawds... Look at the mess I've made! I pulled out some presents from ONE of my many-many gift closets that I'm needing to start wrapping up for Christmas. I'm slightly overwhelmed~ 'cause this is just the tip of the ice berg. It seems I've already bought 4 Barbie's for my 9 month old grandaughter :-P

The baskets of loot, daunting.

There's an app for that?

What a fabulous banner!! What lucky grandkids:)

Thanks for stopping by and sharing about your kitties. I had 3 also, but one passed away in Aug- Miss him too much. Kind of suddenly. I think my kitties keep me uplifted and sane:)

Did you say that the top is crocheted? ...or that you used that special yarn? It is sooo very adorable!!! Very talented:)
