Well Hello There!

This gurl is thinkin' havin' a full time job takin care of a polar bear pup would be the bestest job in the whole wide world!  Well, until it's full grown that is!  

Meet Siku!  She reminds me of my little Violet when she was just a pup.

My New Baby Girl
(Violet 3 weeks old)
Westies and Polar Bears must be related some how.

Hope you had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a wonderful New Year!
She loves a clean slate.

The Croshay Cache

This gurl elf has turned her lil cottage into a croshay manufacturin' plant.

There are croshayed jars, hangers-on, cowls, hats, flower pins. ear warmers and hottie potholders  pilin' up 'round here.

The elf in me even created a pattern for some Wooly Wristys--that's what I call 'em.  I'm addicted.  There were many late nights where the temptation of just throwin in the elf towel and orderin' hoody footies or ginzus crossed her mind, but she would not be deterred.  

Her weekend will be spend decoratin' the mantle, puttin' up a plasticy tree, makin' coconut balls and wrappin' giftys.  By Sunday, this gurl elf will be hangin' up her elf hat, sittin' back with a coconut ball or two and sippin' on a cuppa apple cider.  Most likely tho, she will fall into bed under a big blanky and take a long snooze dreamin' of makin' more Wooly Wristys.

'Twas over a year ago...

that my love affair with the hook started and I created a pattern for this cloche hat.

I've made several this year for giftys and you can too!
They're easy and croshay up quickly.

You will find me over here today, sharin' this little sweetie.
