...I got the dress done for the Summer's Dress Set, but I ran out our lilac baby yarn. Forgot I sold part of my stash on eBay. So, while that sits and waits for me to get to the store. I worked on the teddy bear romper set, got the hat almost done and pattern written. Not to sure about the ears yet. I asked on a forum, I agree, another row and a little more forward on the head. Then I have to get photos for the American Craft Guild Online Craft Show (whew what a mouth full) so I started a quicky cupcake purse. It needs 2 more rows and done. THEN...I bought paper clips today, for my orament swap and yes, I did look for yarn...NONE...no baby bernat at all, stupid small town Walmarts. So tonight I finish my ornaments and thinking what else to stash in her goodie box (photos after it has shipped.)
And what have you been up to lately?

They decided to have it about 30 miles north of Salt Lake. I can understand why, they got the convention space for a song, but the turn out was terrible. As for having a good time, no I did not. Now I do not know if this is because I was comparing it to Starfest or not. But then that is like comparing an apple to an orange. The liquor laws in Colorado sure do make a difference. The bar is right there in the atrium in Denver. In Layton it is a private club and the drinks can not be taken out of that area. Keep thinking a few drinks would of made it better. The stars at Starfest where ones that everyone knew, Mtn Con, where older stars, Sarah Douglas for example, best known as Ursula from Superman 2. But on a good note the brooms, hats and Harry where a hit. Planning on doing it again at Starfest, but this time will auction off Harry and the Futurama hats will be for sale, auctioned and some Harry things provided to a charity auction.

It's official...I have gone over to the crochet side in a bad way. Presenting my latest creation the Dr. Zoidberg hat complete with mouth flaps. The burning question is will I stop soon...the answer "Ah, heck no, I still got Christmas, to make presents to delight other people with." I actually found a Gollum/Smeegul hat, perfect for the son with dual personality of the two. And other things I have got my brain working on. But after the convention, I have to get two baby sets done. I had two nieces born in July and one due in October, all where due in October. Sadly one of the twins passed away and other is still in the hospital. But I would like to get something to her.
Will keep you posted with pics, ecspecially if I get carried away again.
OK!! What is it with my pets versus my hobbies? This is Capt Jack Cockatiel and he does NOT like me do anything that takes away from him. He will perch on my fingers while I am crocheting (see pic) and sing and sing. Then get mad attack the hook if I ignore him. If I am working on my laptop or desktop, he jumps on the keyboard and taps and taps, then attacks the keys. Then he starts saying "Come Here" or better yet cat calls me. I have been reading about male cockatiels and he is the typical male. He will bob his head up and down with me, hold his wings out a little and try to woo me. He is also jealous of my son Erik. If Erik is in the room with me, he gets louder and louder, trying to get my attention. Gotta love him!
Of course the cat is not much better!! He jumps up on my lap and rubs everwhere until he gets some attention.

Well the pattern I was using seems to be flawed. The body was supposed to fit a gallon milk jug. Nope, I got it to fit a 2 liter bottle though. I actually kinda like it better, gives it a more body shape to it. I have the body, head and one leg done. I worked on the hair last night and it completed. Will work on the other leg and arms today. I am going for the look in the picture. I asked and received a terrific pattern from Fran at Crochetville, for a owlet. I am going to make it using white baby lash yarn, to try to get it to look like Hedwig. Will get some pictures tonight.

I am so glad my crochet hook does not talk back, make comments, suggestions or anything else. Where do I sign up to crochet for living?

This is SOOOOOOO much like my cat Shadow, it is not funny. The twerp got his tail hooked in the yarn that I was working on last night, got out the door, down the hall and halfway down the stairs before I got it pulled off. He came right back and started the rubbing and meowing for more attention. Would love to contact the artist and ask him to do one about a cat in the yarn.

I FINALLY got it done and promptly picked up three more cradle purses order. I wanted to work on a Harry Potter door stop, oh well. Here are the picks before my camera died. I thought the white flowers looked Christmasee (is that a word?)
