This weekend I was childless, which gave me the opportunity to crochet. I made a newborn bonnet and this little guy.. BUNNY..

He stands about 6" tall and has a poofy tail. He is all crocheted, so no harm was done in making of the bunny.

I really love making creatures.. they seem to come to life in my hands..  I don't think this pic does him justice..

so be prepared for bunny invasion! I have ideas people IDEAS!!!!!

Crochet Octopus... on a roll

So I'm on a roll in making my Octopusesss, I have been playing with different kinds of yarn, but the yarn I have most enjoyed using is Bernat Handicrafter yarn. Easy to crochet with, and makes a nice tight fabric. I'm using a 3.5 mm crochet needle for the head, and a 4.25mm for the legs and mantle piece.

I have been using eyes that I purchased from Etsy - 6060, she carries a variety of safety eyes, and is always fast with delivery... and inexpensive! Double bonus in my books.

As for my hands well it can be challenging, when doing the tight knit, my hands get slippery, and I will need to find a way that I can easily hang-on to the needle without killing my wrists. ANY suggestions would be fantastic on what others do to save their hands from cramping up!

Snow Day on da island

At least once a year Victoria gets a snow storm.. and today was that day.. 
The Great Canadian SNOW DAY
After the blizzard had finally settled down, we headed out.. and what fun we had...

 What a kid, and like any kid a snow angel is a must! We had so much fun and some good laughs and chase scenes in the snow. 

Snow Angel Moment

Time to be silly!!!

Because she could

Because I could!

Overall it was a fantastic day, it was sad in the late afternoon to say good-bye to her.. I had to watch her father drive away. Her little hand waving like there was no tomorrow.. I sure love her, my little turkey, my princess..... my Adele.

Our mighty hunters

Buttercup (aka Kitty) and Diva

When I was just about to head upstairs to the bathroom...... Our mighty hunters had caught another mouse... and normally once dead is left alone and we the humans dispose of the remains.. NOT this day, oh hell NOOOOOO baby kitty decided that not only are these small furry creatures awesome to play with LIVE, but dead as well.. and flinging them up and down the stairs is a blast.. YAAAAA..

"DOOOOONNNNNNNNNNN" were the words that came out of my mouth.. oh yes the love of my life, my hero, grab the deceased rodent by the tail and disposed of it.

I thought awesome, went to the bathroom, then I saw where the carnage originally happened... yaaa spent the next 15 minutes cleaning up Kitty's murder scene...

yes these are our mighty mouse hunters...  sleeping!

Happy New Year!

Wow I can't believe another year has passed..
The holidays was a much needed break from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 
I was able to play around with my crochet hooks as well as some knitting skills. My love for knitting hasn't changed, for those who don't know.. I'm being very sarcastic. I'm a crochet girl.. but I have also come to realise that there are just some projects that require two needles not one.  So I'm learning... please Don has asked me to make him a pair of socks! I love the challenge!

We also have a new member to the family.. Buttercup
