Little things

This is Ludwig. Rachel came home from work and asked if I could make a lion for her friend. So I got to thinking (That is always a bit scary.), and here he is.
Ludwig's little friend is Iris. She is my little bear. Rachel took the little white one to work. She has it on her desk.
I used the same pattern for each of them. I think I'll see what else come out of my hook and yarn.
I'm enjoying that pattern. I may even make some bigger animals.

More crochet and News

This is my little bear.  I started him last night during CSI.  By the middle of the News he was almost done.  I finished him this morning.  I put the nail polish in the picture so you could tell how big he is.
I got the patten from  http//

He needs a name...Send me an idea.  I pick the name I like best and send you a surprize.

This is the gown I made for Breast Cancer Awarness Month.
I love Barbie and I never plan to give up making gowns for her.

They played with the settings for the blog again.  Now I have to learn how to do it all over again.
I will never understand why...when it ain't broke this computer geeks keep trying to fix it.  Just leave things along.
Facebook did the same thing.  It was just fine.  Now...I'm just confused.

I'll be away from my computer for awhile.  I'm leaving for Hawaii on Monday.  I'm going to be in the sun for 10 wonderful days.

My televising just died...the cable went out.  CRAP!!!!  It's so quiet in here.

Been Busy

I knitted this shawl. This is my daughter, Rachel, modelling my shawl.
It's just a big rectangle. I don't do alot of knitting. I prefer crochet. For me it is much faster. And I can do more with it. But I had this lovely yarn that just called to be knitted.
These are Voodoo dolls. I made the short pink one and Rachel made the other two. She's going to teach the girls she works with how to make them.
They look alien to me. Maybe it's because I have so many UFO around here. I just expect Aliens to appear.
This is my bird. I made him because someone had the pattern on the Crochet Partners Group on Yahoo. I added the feather for his tail. Because birds need feathers to survive in this world.
I seem to enjoy making silly things.
Chris says that I'm in my second childhood. I tell her, "No, I never left my first."
Autumn has appeared in Utah. The leaves are turning up in the mountains. My garden is almost finished. We'll be putting the swamp cooler to sleep for another year next week.
I am just not ready for Summer to be gone. Tough, right!
I read a Blog (Raymond and me) from a girl in New Zealand. She is getting excited for Spring.
I'm so happy for her.
Guess I'll deal with Autumn. DARN!
