~ bits & pieces ~

Making more squares for my VOPS blanket.

Two of my mini orchids have flowered.  They are so pretty and so easy to take care of.  The mini orchids only need one ice cube every Sunday.
I bought these 3 at Giant for only $1.29 each.  I guess the flower people at Giant thought that they were done for.  The orchid on the left in the bottom picture shows no sign of flowering now, but I'm sure that it will eventually.

New hooks for a friend.
I hope she likes them.

I had plans to go to the campground last Thursday and stay for a few days - my family has started making plans for the Haunted TeePee and a meeting was being held on Saturday.  Well, I had to cancel on that because I had to stay home and wait for a phone call from the manager of AC Moore.  But guess what?  She never called.  What a kick in the butt.  Don't tell me you're going to call and then don't.
Oh well - maybe she'll call this week.  

I wish you all a great week.  :)

~ bits & pieces ~

Trying to make a teddy bear bib last night - I don't think it worked.  Bobby said that I should make his ears bigger.  What do you think?
p.s. this is the back of a teddy bear.

Just playing around with my polymer clay.

These are the 'guardian grandmas' donations that I have bagged and carded.  There are a few more bags in the back of my car.

Have a good day ladies.  :)

Eight rows complete.  I have one more row of squares to add, then it's back to crocheting more squares for it.

~ 6 rows done and bits & pieces ~


(this is not the bus - just a picture my husband took)

Note to anyone who wants to try to pass a Metro bus on the right when the bus is making a right hand turn - DON'T DO IT!!
My husband squished a car yesterday.
It was not my husband's fault - the car driver was charged by police.
One lane means one vehicle.
Sometimes I wonder about people.

p.s. my husband is Body Shop lead man, but also does mechanical work.  He was heading back to the shop after a test drive.

** no one was hurt **

~ 'guardian grandmas' donation from Ms. Luna plus bits & pieces ~

Thank you, thank you Ms. Luna for your generous donation of 22 precious little baby hats.  They are adorable.  I especially love the little pointy ones - so cute.  ♥


Thinking of crocheting a blanket with just white & off white yarns.


I called in my dogs one day.  Tex came in, but Ladybug didn't, so I went looking for her.

I couldn't find her.

I called her name.

Then I whistled.

There she is.  Looks like I disturbed her sleep.  

Ladybug likes to dig holes and then lay in them.  Drives us crazy.
