"Show and Tell Friday"
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
I have a special friend that I met through blogging many months ago. Her name is Kelly and she lives in Minnesota with her family. We email each other almost daily and yesterday she sent me a wonderful surprise in the mail.
Four of the prettiest little doll dresses, that she crocheted. I put a quarter in the picture so you can see just how small they are.
Each one has a little ribbon or....
She made a red one for Grace, pink for Emily and a yellow and blue one for me. All of our favorite colors!
Here is the best part...they are actually bookmarks!!
To use, just open the skirt part, carefully slip it over the top corner of the page you want to mark, and slide it until the corner of the page comes through the neck opening of the dress.
I think they are the cutest things and I am very thankful for such a generous and thoughtful friend! Thank you, Kelly!
Kelly also shared the free pattern link with me so if you know how to crochet and would like to make some of your own, here is where you should go...
