ok.. so no pics this time..
I will be posting again soon... cuz I finished the Mario Blanket!!! YEAHHHHH good thing her shower is this weekend, but once I finished it I went a bit nuts.. I made a mario star Passy leash and a mario star hat that matches the blanket. I finished them yesterday.
I am almost finished with the Tetris quilt. I should finish it by this weekend. so It should be up soon too.

The lady who I made the dog for had her baby the day before yesterday. He's apparently perfect. I really don't have any more information on that one. I live almost 2 hrs from most of my friends... which sucks.

Do any of ya'll know any one who is trying-to-conceive (TTC)? I need someone else to join Fertility Friend and say I got them to join so I (and them) get 30 days free VIP.
About the TTC. DH & I have been TTC since last Nov. If you haven't noticed... i've been doing alot of baby gifts. yeah.. we started trying.. and EVERYONE ELSE GETS PREG!! AGGGHHH... sigh.. it's a bit frustrating. I know God is teaching me patience... I just wish he would hurry up about it! At least I'm running out of Preg-able friends. actually I think I have run out... the 3 who aren't preg now just had babies (the dog toy mom, the binary hat mom, and the orange bag mom) the only one left preg is the mario star mom.
Well after I finish the quilt I'm planning on making a braided rug. Our house has hardwood floors and they are FREEZING!! then.. fingerless gloves... I need some sooooo bad...
I'll be posting pics soon :)
ya'll have a good day :)

Long weekend.

so.. long weekend. I really didn't get anything to speak of done on the Mario blanket. I usually work on crochet project when we drive on the weekends.. unfortunately.. DH's license is suspended.... yeah......... so lots of driving for me for the next 3 months.

We did end up going to visit a friend yesterday. Lots of good food and some odd conversation. Months ago she wanted me to make her a crocheted grocery bag. I kept the project at her house and worked on it there. I pretty much finished it, it's to the point of useable. I just need to add the bottom section to ball it up in. Her son aka "kitten" fell in love with it, as you can see.

A few weekends ago I made a little dog for one of my friends who is expecting and I forgot to take pics of it before I gave it to her. So she was nice enough to take pics for me. :)

More Mario and Calves

Ok... here is some more work done on the Mario blanket. I'm just starting the white rounds. all the clouds are finished. I seem to not have much time to work on it. but it is coming along ok. The baby shower is supposed to be in about a month. I should have it done by then. I'll prob finish the white part this weekend.

I also wanted to share a bit of cuteness. These are my grandfathers brand new calves.
Aren't they Cute? We believe they are twins. They appeared the same morning. There are only two cows, 1 bull and a steer in the field with the calves. We believe the other cow is also preg. One is a male the other a female. She will be part of the herd to help rebuild post Katrina, yes it has taken this long. Major portions of the fencing was destroyed and has only been repaired within the past 6 months. His previous herd had to be sold until the repairs could be made. So.. little calf brings hope.
