Here's Mojo...

Ok when I saw this pic it reminded me of that scene in The Shinning with jack Nicholson.
Maybe it's just me, or it could be that Halloween is tomorrow, and I am ready for a horror movie fest at my sister's.
Any way tomorrow my sweet baby boy Mojo will be one. And right now I am worried about him. He is having surgery today. He is getting nuetured. Hell of away to celebrate a birthday!(hubby says he is worried what I have planned for his in March!LOL)
He gets to come home tomorrow evening.

The mess I call my life.

Ok in the end of June a realtor came to our house to inform us that we are selling.
Funny this is the first we heard about it.
But it seems that the county wants to buy up the entire block to build a new probation office.
So we have been house hunting since, to no avail.
Everytime we find a place something happens and it fell thru, that happened twice.
And those were the only two houses that came close to being what we need and want.
So anyway we went and signed the papers to sell our house this past Tuesday.
We close on December 17th and have until March 17th to vacate and take everyting and anything that we want to take out of the house.
And we are planning on doing just that.
Anyway we are going to keep looking and maybe we will find one before we have to move in with my mother-in-law.
And that is what I have been up to.
And trust me looking at 21 houses in a week really wears you out!

Mr. Bear and Mr. Rabbit

Mr. Bear and Mr. Rabbit lived in the same forest, but they didn't like each other very much. One day, while walking through the woods, and they came across a golden frog. They were amazed when the frog talked to them. The golden frog admitted that he didn't often meet anyone, but, when he did, he always gave them six wishes, so he told them that they could have three wishes each.

Mr. Bear immediately wished that all the other bears in the forest were females. The frog granted his wish. Mr. Rabbit, after thinking for a while, wished for a crash helmet. One appeared immediately, and he placed it on his head.

Mr. Bear was amazed at Mr. Rabbit's wish, but carried on with his second wish. He wished that all the bears in the neighboring forests were females as well, and the frog granted his wish. Mr. Rabbit then wished for a motorcycle. It appeared before him, and he climbed on board and started revving the engine.

Mr. Bear could not believe it and complained that Mr. Rabbit had wasted two wishes that he could have had for himself. Shaking his head, Mr. Bear made his final wish, that all the other bears in the world were females as well, leaving him as the only male bear in the world. The frog replied that it had been done, and they both turned to Mr. Rabbit for his last wish.

Mr. Rabbit revved the engine, thought for a second, then said, “I wish that Mr. Bear was gay!” and rode off as fast as he could.

Still don't know what I am doing..

Me crocheting is like me cooking or even trying to fix my computer.
I just keep doing stuff until it does what I want it too!
Like this bag.
I still don't know what kind of stitch I used to the net effect.
I like it, no one showed me I just winged it.
It is made up of random cotton yarn leftovers I had in my stash.
I made the strap EXTRA wide so if I decide to head out to the market it won't cut off the circulation in my arm. Or I may just line it and use it for a purse. But then I am still debating on getting rid of the strap and putting wooden handles on it.
Who knows what this thing will end up like.
Any way I like and that is all that matters right?

More adventures in crochet

So I got tired of doing dish cloths, still haven't learned any new stitches just the basic single crochet.
So I decided to make gauntlets.
It is all single crochet, but I did have to to learn slip stitch to do the cuffs(which was taught over the phone!)
I like these the last dark blue pair are for my mom. They are made out of the softest suede yarn by Lion Brand! Love that stuff, love it even more when you can get it at Big Lots for $1.50!!!
All of these are just made out of left over yarn from my stash.
I have a ton from when I used to make dammit dolls.

Crayon tinted embroidery

I thought I would give this ago.
Not to sure how it will hold up in the wash.
I will let you know in a future post.
