I was thinking . . .

Dangerous, I know, but I can not stop it!!
So I picked up the Jan/feb issue of Crochet Today, and I was thinking as I keep seeing familiar names, How cool is it that I know some of these designers!! For Instance, cover pattern and awesome boot pattern came from Lady Linoleum (monster crochet), aka Regina, adv then another one was from Tammy Snow (roxycraft). I think, wow I have purchased patterns from both of them directly, I could email them if I wanted to!!! I guess it is kind of like a celebrity status!
I do not know I guess this brings my crochet dorkiness to a new level!

I am almost finished with my son's requested Kitty, so hopefully if my camera does not poop on me, I will have more work up very soon. Now that the holiday craziness is gone, I can actually sit and crochet for a second!

Long time, no blog

Oops, I had not realized it had been so long since I had posted. My bad. I have kinda been busy. I had a job at a factory for a while, They did not seem to run things very well though. I worked 13 days straight, was off for a couple of days, on for 4 more days, then off again. Not very stable at all. But I just found out this week that I will be starting on Monday at Blue Cross Blue Shield of MI, a heath insurance company. This is an awesome opportunity, and I am not going to have to worry about my job security! I am sure heath insurance is not going anywhere!!

I do have some finished projects, not all crochet, I have been giving my sewing machine some exercise lately. I will try really hard to get and post pictures very soon.

I am actually crocheting

. . . sorta. I have been trying to pick it up at least once a day. It is very hard when everything is so up in the air (regarding work). Michigan is such a crap place to live right now. But anyways, I am so proud of myself, I completed this little cutie in ONE DAY! I tested the pattern for Stormy, and he turned out adorable!

So it absolutely amazes me that less then 2 weeks ago it was sunny and 50 degrees, and all the snow was gone. And now it has been in the single digits to high teens all this week and we now have over a foot of snow on the ground!

So even though it is going to be quite crappy to drive in today, it sure is beautiful!!

Star Wars horoscope

Star Wars Horoscope for Pisces

A typical Pisces, you have your head in the clouds.
You're self-sacrificing and a bit too passive to stand up to the dark side.
You become fairly pessimistic when put under pressure.
You are a chameleon - wanting to change your scenery on occasion.

Star wars character you are most like: Lando

Not exactly true, the first line is, but I think I stand out in a crowd! and I am much cuter the Lando!

I made a hoodie!!!!! I am not only a crochet addict, I also know how to sew!!! Except I really need to get a better chair for my machine, the dining room chairs really suck to sit in for too long. I will post the tute I followed (kinda) when crafters is back up from maintenance. The pic is kinda dark, I used a purpleish/grey camo and black.

don't you just love the camera in the face mirror pics!!!! It is the only way I could get a pic that looked half-way decent. I will try to get better pics up soon.

edit: Here is the link to the tute from Craftster.
