New Projects

Started a new afghan yesterday, from a pattern here:
It's really pretty, I think it looks like vines on a trellis. which is why I'm making mine in 'soft sage green'.

Also currently making a trio of bears in a very small gauge, so I thought it would be nice to have something larger to switch back and forth with.

I'm very excited to have made Zorro the fox, from my post here:
into an adoptable Squiby! I made it in Paint, from my original drawing, so I realize it isn't as slick and bright and perfect as the ones made with the fancy art programs and tablets and things, but I am delighted with how it turned out.

More Pyrex In Action

Christmas cookies from December of 2010. Really good. Standard recipe from the chocolate chip bag only with M&M's instead of chips.


 Crocheted bedspread on the line after washing.

Pop Art In Onion

Pretty red onion being sliced up for vegetable soup, and the soup! From November 2010.

Still Life In Pink

Some old photos from October of 2010, red grapes with curly stems in a Pyrex "Gooseberry" fridgie.


In January some mysterious kitty left a trail of dusty pawprints on my car overnight. ^^

Lovely in Yellow

Some pansies from February.

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Made pineapple upside-down cupcakes in March, thought I'd post a pic here so I can remember to make them again! You make them just like the cake, only smaller. :) Soooo good.

Ripple Afghan

I've started making an afghan from the gorgeous pattern Neopolitan Ripple, from here:

I liked it because of the softness of the wave. I started a Crochetalong on Craftster, although so far I'm in the canoe and paddling alone, haha:

Mine will be cream, beige, and green. I also signed up on Ravelry for another year of 12" squares, so that will take some catching up.

May 3, 2012

I know I've mostly abandoned this blog for a few years. My focus has been on writing rather than crafts. I missed the old template and all the old buttons and badges I'd collected in the sidebar, but I didn't feel like fiddling with code anymore. Most of all I missed the pictures at the top of my Rosie and Lily who are now both over the rainbow bridge. The whole blog made me nostalgic and wistful.

But I've started a couple of new projects and I need a place to gab about them and post pics. I've got better net access again and can navigate Craftster once more. I might try to rebuild Squirrel's Worlds.

Barnum's Animals

I've always been a big fan of animal crackers. Simple, sweet, cute, delicious, and you can share them with your dog. What's not to love? So when I spotted my favorite cookie in a different-looking box, I had to buy one and find out what was up. The art on the box is by Lilly Pulitzer, in partnership with Operation Smile.

Here is a Cracker Tracker, where you can put a pin on a map to show where you found your special box! I entered mine! :)
