Review ~A Review And Science

Review ~A Review And Science  http://www.niftynnifer.com/2015/02/review-review-and-science.html



This boy is so smart. After we (He and I) enrolled in the
 free 'Stunning Birthday Cards' class from Craftsy, He 
decided to take the cards to a whole new level. Here is a great photo of him hard at work on this years Science Fair Project. He decided to incorporate the Penny Slider Card idea into his project!! And it sure does add some fun to his hard work. We have had hours of fun preparing his display board, and I am so proud of his hard work.

Free Crochet Pattern ~A Silly Hat For My Silly Dog

Free Crochet Pattern ~A Silly Hat For My Silly Dog  http://www.niftynnifer.com/2015/01/free-crochet-pattern-silly-hat-for-my.html #Crochet #Hat #Dog
She is so adorable sleeping in her new hat! She didn't like it on her head until I added the braided ties.
I would say this hat is easy to make.


It involves some front post double crochet, as well as single crochet, double crochet and half double crochet stitches, skipping stitches, and decreasing.
