Birthday Gift, Donation and Wedding Gifts

Jace got invited to a Pirate Birthday Party so here's what I came up with.
I made a bucket out of some fabric that I hade left over
 from another project and then 13 stuffed cannon balls so his
friend could have a pirate war or  play a tossing game,
kinda like bean bags.
The bag also has a drawstring closure so none of the balls get lost.
You can't have a pirate loosing his balls you know!
Hee! Hee!

My older kids are at the stage that everytime you say
 "balls" they giggle so I had to throw that one in.

I also made some yellow play dough and Jace kneaded
 the glitter into it so his friend can make some pirates gold coins.

These are some butterflies that I crocheted on Wednesday
for The Butterfly Project that the Holocaust Museum is doing.
They need 1.5 million butterflies
 so if you'd like to make to make some please do. 
 I'm making 24 of these....
1 for each of my 8 kids, the 14 grandkids and then me and Earl.


I made this for my stepmom's nephew for his wedding. 
I had them made in October, but just got them mailed out.  Oops!

 Their dishes are a tangerine orange and the kitchen is a green color. 
 I hope these match! 

 I made a set of 6 double sided cloth napkins, 2 tawashi's and a
 crocheted champagne bottle holder...
or it works pretty good to hold the napkins too!

I love the pirate stuff. That is going to be a big hit. Your butterflies are beautiful. I love the project. I think all the butterflies in one place are going to be heartwrenching and beautiful.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
