I Just Don't Know

This is the detail of the paws. This is the top complete with piggy tails and crookedy smile!

I just finished this crochet projects a few minutes ago. When I first saw it, I thought it was really cute. I even thought it was cute as I was putting the pieces together. But now.....I just don't know. It is supposed to be a Christmas gift for my daughter, but I can't decide if I should give it to her or go ahead and scrap the whole thing. I don't dislike it, but then it isn't one of those projects that once I was done, I stepped back and said, "Hm...that turned out pretty good." I would keep it if it was something I made for me, but as a gift.....IDK!
What do you think? Should I give it to her? Or add it to my stash of yarn scaps.

What Sweet Gifts!!!

Aren't they wonderful?! The mail lady has been a busy woman delivering these sweet packages! Nancy Jo sent me the most wonderful bag of buttons. The buttons are in the jar waiting for the lamp to me put together. :) I couldn't resist stuffing the bag with fluff so I could keep it once I put the buttons in it. Isn't it cute!
Bert sent me the adorable teddy. He is so cute. He reminds me of country cinnamon so I have named him Cinnamon! His little buttons are silver hearts. Too sweet!
Thank you both for thinking of me! It's so nice to go out to the mailbox and find I have been left wonderful treasures from my friends!! :)
Both of their cards said Happy Farmgirl Month!! :O) Yay!

The finished Tea Stained Doll

Here she is ALL finished. I've been so busy lately, that I didn't realize until I posting today, that I never posted her completed. She is the first one that has embroidered eyes and hair. I think she turned out cute. Her hair is just yarn. There has to be an easier way to sew it on than what I did, so I will be trying to figure that one out before too long. :) Tori says I should name her Victoria because she looks like her! :P

Granny Square Afghan--New Year Project

These are a few of the squares for my Granny afghan that I have finished. I always thought they were such pretty patterns and designs, but it seemed to hard for me. Once I got started, it was TONS easier than I thought and I got the hang of it pretty quick. This is the start to the makings of a queen sized bed afghan. I hope I can stick with it. I am not buying anything extra to use for it, so it will be slow going as I finish other projects and there is yarn leftover. :O) Hopefully, it doesn't collect too much dust while it waits. I am a short term project person and have a hard time with something that takes more than a week to complete. Keeping my fingers crossed! :O)
