Sassy and her bee

This is Sassy the cat and her buzzing bee. I hope to get her listed on Ebay by tomorrow. Not quite happy with the bee, it has been one of those days nothing seems to come out right. Everything I seem to try to get done seems to flop. So I am hanging it up for the day. Maybe I will just try cleaning up my studio so I can be more productive! LOL Enjoy

Birthday gift for my Mother

This wrap is a Birthday present for my sweet Mother. Her Birthday is Sunday and she will be 89, no dull boring things for her. I used two different yarns and my big needles. Some Black and Gold for a Purdue fan! I just need to create some sort of pin or flower to set it over the top. I think she will look so cute in the one!
Hope you enjoy

Fun and Funky!

Yes, I am still knitting and made this scarf from my fun yarn I purchased a short time ago. I love the colors in this yarn and used my big needles. I am practicing with them for my over the top piece that I hope to start this weekend. I hope it turns out like the vision I have in my head. It is getting kind of crowded in my Artistic memory bank and need to get some things out of my head and  made. As it has been quite spring like this week, my bead table and my sewing machine are beckoning me to come play! Have a wonderful weekend!

A scarf from scraps!

This one is finished form some left over yarns. Two other projects and a heart pin with love. I wear hearts all the time not just Valentines day. I also think we should always try to spread some Love. It is has been warming up quite a bit these last couple of days. I am sure this is just a tease! They are saying we will get more snow or ice, Yippee! Hope you enjoy!!

Trading my creating in for some Basketball!

Say what?

Get out of the way!

This week is slow in the creating area! I have several things in the makings, but not getting anything finished. We have three basketball games this week since we had all the snow last week. I love basketball and love to watch Makayla play. She is all over the court when she is playing. I snapped a few pictures from Monday nights game. Enjoy !

Do you think this one need a little somthing?

Yes another scarf! I feel like a knitting factory. LOL! I just might be able to do this in my sleep now. I find it relaxing and easy to do sitting in front of the fire trying to forget about the snow. This scarf has turned into more of a cowl. I did my own thing with this, yes I always break the rules! I used two different yarns and one has gold sequins in it. I thought maybe some fringe but nothing was working for me. For now I am leaving it as is, I might figure out what it needs. Enjoy and stay warm!

It keeps snowing so I keep knitting!

Yes I am still knitting. I have finished yet another scarf. I wasn't sure I liked the yellow ribbon, now it is finished I think it works. I wanted a yellow silk ribbon but of course I didn't have enough nor could I find any more. So I used two different ribbons. Sorry the orange walls make it look more orange then it is. I would love to hear what you think of it. Enjoy!

Look what the mailman brought me !

Yesterday much to our surprise the mailman brought me this! Yes the mailman made it through the winter storm to our house. I am sure he didn't travel all the way down the road. We had a snow plow stuck just half a mile down from us. I got this lush yarn I ordered. O I love this stuff and can't wait to make something cool with this! I am getting a bit stir crazy and want to go to town. Stay warm!


Another scarf...

With a lot of snow and time off, what is a girl to do? Create of course! I am not getting as much done as I should but I am working on things. I was getting a little bored with a couple of scarves I have been working on. My niece saw this one in the works and fell in love with it. I got it finished and yes she is getting another scarf for her birthday! I have some fun ones in the works so stay tuned! I also have some dollies in the works and I just might get some beading done! Hope you all stay warm and get dug out from this winter storm, they stay we might get some more of that white stuff the first of the week! Enjoy

Wordless Wednesday.....More on the winter storm 2011

I said wordless.......but anyone who knows me very well knows I am never wordless! LOL
If you look close there is a snow plow stuck in the road........

The road in front of my house

A few of our barn kittys came out to explore a bit

Out my kitchen window.....mommy let me in!

My free entertainment!

This squirrel was just a hoot yesterday! Roso was trying to get as close to the window as he could. I looked and didn't see anything. Back in the tree eating another walnut was this cute critter. He came down and started digging in the snow. It was sleeting pretty good so that is why the pictures are so blurry, plus I was laughing. He was on a mission for more nuts! The funny thing was just under our gas tank were quite a few, he would not had to work so hard to get them! Enjoy

Look at this chubby guy!

We just got a picture of this fat squirrel outside in the freezing rain. He is eating a walnut in our walnut tree. The freezing rain did not seem to bother him at all. He must have a pretty good stash of walnuts he has been eating by how big he is. Hubby said I should send it in for a weather picture I hope you are staying safe and warm! .Enjoy
