a simple recipe:
1 cup sharing, 1 cup caring and
3 cups of insanity.
A beautiful morning to you all! How was your week, I hope it was fantastic? My week was awesome....I was surrounded by fun people and friends, did lots of knitting, had extra hours at work and made some extra money. Pretty cool week for me really.
I suspect my sense of humour is going to continue down ‘crazy path’ as I age. I had this delusion that I might perhaps ‘grow out of it’, but alas.....I am mistaken. Last weekend Heather the feather and I were cruising around on Pinterest and came across a hilarious crocheted creation. Trust Heather to be with me when we discovered this.....
Isn’t this crazy and funny?
A tissue box cover! This is my version that I made during the week. All you have to do is pull a tissue out of his nose. Lol I am taking this to the library with me to give the children a laugh. I have to tell you all....the children at school have a super sense of humour and that is where I learn half of the funny stuff I know. Perhaps they can help me name him?
I have become quite a champion at this crocheting business and now I can create novelty things not only by knitting them but I can crochet them as well.
I posted about some crocheted bunny security blankets a little while back and they were so popular that they have all been sold. Here is the beginning of a new one.I have always found the garden to be a place of peace and serenity (not when you see snakes though!!! Lol) and many wonderful thoughts and feelings come to me while enjoying a stroll amongst the plants. I have discovered that you don’t even need to have the biggest yard full of plants but you can find as much pleasure and peace in even a collection of an interesting patch of the yard. I have several of these little patches both in the front and back yard.
Oh no...she’s caught me!
“...um...er....No I’m not doing anything wrong!”
“No mummy darling, I’m an angel!”
(I will just quickly finish nibbling this bit....)
This needs a good pull too...
Awww...nearly got it.Enough crazy stuff, back to the pleasantries now. Lol Here is my finished baby set. This is from a older knitting book where the instructions made sense and one could actually follow the pattern. No ssk in this knitting book. Yay!! The pattern for the top is Feather and fan stitch, which in older days was called Shale lace.
The armholes and neck were crocheted with a cute edging to finish it off. The pants were from another pattern within the same book. I’m very happy with how it turned out.
What will the coming week hold for us all I wonder? I take things as they come. Sometimes we have problem after problem, sometimes we cruise along fine. Whatever comes my way I will just roll with it. My plans though are to be as happy as I can, crochet more bunny blankets and to get as much cataloguing done as I can at work. If this is all I have to worry about, I’m thinking my life is pretty wonderful.
May you also find all the happiest thoughts and enjoy the fantastic things that come your way.
