Two New Things

I tweeked my 'Perfect Slipper' in order to have a unisex line
as well, after I made a pair for a customer that wanted
to get for her boyfriend (she wanted in yellow/grey).
They are called:

'Let's Play Footsies'
Unisex Slippers
I will try and get some more colors done as soon as possible
for both slippers, and get them posted at my etsy shop.
I have also working on a design (still doing a tad of tweeking yet)
For lip balm keychain.
It is going to be called:
Lip Balm 'Baby In A Blankie'
Keychain Holder

Hi, Yea, It's Me!!

Sorry that I have not been in here posting much lately. I have started making slippers. I did up this design a couple of weeks back.
I call them
'The Perfect Slipper'.
No toe poking out of these, lol.
I made these more like a shoe at the toe end, then rounded back to making the foot. Since I first posted these at my etsy shop, I have been busy filling orders for them. They did turn out so good that I will be continuing to make on these for a while. I am trying to get at least 8 or 9 more colors done up soon, now that I have caught up on these first orders.

Here are the two that I have finished and are posted at my etsy shop:

'Raspberry Orchids'

I have been missing in action



Sorry everybody, I haven't meant to desert you all. I have been working on a few designs of my own. I have 3 or 4 in the works..............but I have finished one of them just tonight. It is really a simple pattern ( I do not like anything else, LOL).
I wanted to come up with a baby afghan that one could do in under 6 hours (or in one day).
This is what I designed. Remember, it is just a really simple ghan, but it can be gussied up with some applique things for girl or boy. Just sew onto the ghan anywhere. This is a simple join as you go ghan.

I finally got my website two days ago. I have been shopping
for a web host a little over a year. After I saw Ambers store, I new

a few things, but there are a lot more that need to be put in there.

I will do a little each day so check back often. Contact me there
and let me know if there is anything you would want me to carry,
I will do my best to get it in my shop for you.

Have a good one out there.

Think Cool

Yes I did, I forgot to get a pic of my Saturday Sky.
I knew I would














So I thought that I would post these
( some of my wall paper pics) for all
of you out there that need a bit of cooling
down in your neck of the woods.

Think cool, it just might help.....

Hi everyone.
I have been trying to get this back up as soon as I could and I think that I have just about got everything back on board now. I will add more goodies now that I have somewhere to put them.
I just did not have any room much with the Blogger 2-column template for what all I wanted to put in my blog. So I went searching for a blogger 3-column template
and found this site.
Check it out:
http://thrbrtemplates.blogspot.com/
This is the one there in blue (left side about mid way down). This one that I liked the best because it is one of my favorite colors and I did not have to try and figure out how to change it.
Well, I have to run for now.

Please scroll all the way down to the bottom, I have much more down there to.

Look through the Christian Ring Surf while you are there. Lots of wonderful crochet sites there
and a few have patterns for our personal use that are really nice. I think you would enjoy searching through them immensely.

Everyone of you that visit here today, here's wishing you have a blessed one.

I got my June Square today from the CrochetMania swap. Thanks
Miranda,
and Jodi....teehee.
You see, Jodi made my June square and sent it to Miranda....hey, we
have all been there, done that, I know I have. Miranda forwarded it on
to me, thank you my dear :)

I just love it Jodi, light blue is one of my favorite colors.
Sorry for the blurr, my batteries are getting low:

I also got a visit from the CrochetMania fairy today as well........... Just

lookey :) I love scrap patterns, I collect these the most. How did she know....Hmmmm.

It always seems that I have more left over yarns than not. it never

seems to be enough left over to do in anything big. So, it's the scrap

patterns to the rescue :)

Saturday Sky

click on for a full view
Here today in my neck of the woods our sky is pretty but we are having A HOT ONE my friends. We have been in the 90's now for a few days and very humid---never a pleasant mix at all. To give you an idea of just how miserable it has been, and is today, last night we had a heat index of 92 degrees (Fahrenheit) at 10:oo PM.
WOW!!
I wish I could say that we haven't hit our dog days of Summer here, but I can't----they have arrived in all their glory. This usually stays like this for about 6 weeks on an average here, and then we begin to start cooling back down.
Hope all of you out there are having a wonderful Saturday Sky your way and don't forget to show us your
Saturday Sky.

I had the chance to do some blog surfing today. I registered to become a member of a ring that Jimmielu has started and I had popped into visit her blog.
I found this:
(Pass the sq getting started).
http://jimmielulscrochetworld.blogspot.com/
It sounds like a lot of fun. Would anyone here that visits my blog like to pass the sq.? If so, just send to me your inquiry of interest in doing so by filling out the yellow submit (your top 5) form about midway down on the right here on this page.
It sounds like it would be a lot of fun to do.

Happy Birthday, America!

On July 4, 1776,
we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their
homeland to come to the "land of the free and the home of the
brave" so they can begin their American Dream.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic
people. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate that freedom
and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings. Through the Internet we are learning about and communicating
with people of different nations, with different languages and
different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer
with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations.

We invite all nations to celebrate with Americans online this Fourth
of July.

Happy Birthday, America!

Feelin Bad

I have been so sick now with a loosy chest cold for 3 days, and today, I thought I would begin to feel some better.
Surprise----Nada,
I am not much better at all. I usually never get a cold in the Summer but I think this one is well making up for all of those I missed.
I tried to add more links on the right tonight for you all (free Patterns). I got 4 more put up for you.
Hope to be feeling better tomorrow, I still want to get so much posted in my blog for you all.
Check out Jodi's Blog, she has done up another very pretty afghan, you got to see it.

Til Tomorrow.
