Sailor Ripple

I can finally post about a wee little afghan I finished awhile ago.
I whipped this one out in no time but I had to wait until the recipient received it to post about it.

A wavy ripple for the son a Navy man...

My sweet, happy new little cousin!

P.S. My hubby made the Tie Dye!

Peace ;0)

Work Site Shots

We had the pleasure of working in a log cabin in a wonderful old part of town a few days ago and across the street I spotted this Totem like sculpture with five little bears climbing up... Cute huh?

I had to throw this shot in just because I love the color of this cabin all frosted in white and the icicle that is nearly reaching the ground.

The log cabin where we swept the chimney has an old rock fireplace all covered in lichen and a fabulous view out the window.

This is a shot of the creek running right outside their back door.

Gorgeous. It hasn't snowed much at all yet but it sure is pretty already.

Ahh...so fresh and crisp ;0)

Color Muse

Long time no see yet again my friends. I have been too busy to blog but Super busy with work, crochet, tie dye, etc. Lots to post about but no gumption to write, only...create. I have, of course, found bits of time to spend browsing through Pinterest, an endless source of inspiration.This time Pinterest or I should say the fabulous photography of our glorious earth has sparked a new color scheme for my latest crochet afghan. I am calling it Autumn Sunset.
Here are the photos that inspired it...

Feels peaceful doesn't it? Ahh...
I already have a couple more in mind to stitch up once I finish this one.
Yee Haw! Have a great Day.
P.S. It is snowing! ;0)

ALWAYS remember...

You never know...vampires might be everywhere!

3 Afghans

I have been super hooky lately and I have finished three new baby afghans or lap afghans for the shop. I had so much fun playing with gradient colors in greens and pinks that I have decided I need to do a purple one ...yarn is on the way. One Super carnival/fiesta confetti colored baby blanket

One "Luck O' the Irish" Ombre in green...mmm.

One Tangy Sweet Raspberry Ombre in Pinks Afghan!

The next one will be for a new little boy who is a few days overdue today and his Mommy needs him to come out and meet the world. I have also found out that yet another family member of mine is expecting a baby in March...I am hoping for a girl!

Here's to new babies, their Mommies and the blankets that keep them snug. Have a Great Day!

Fireman's Picnic and Canoe Races

Hello all! Yet again I have let myself get busy living life and as a result my blog suffers from extreme neglect. I have quite a bit to tell you so I am going to have to make up for lost...or maybe gained...time and pump out some rapid fire posts. The holidays are well on their way and I have big crafty plans. Onward HO!

So...earlier this summer we attended the Fireman's Picnic and Canoe Races at Horseshoe Lake (one of our local lakes). Rugby was very happy to meet up with some great friends,human and canine.
The record snow we received last winter has melted and filled up our lakes...a bit too much! Check out that BBQ in the foreground.

The Mammoth Crest and our gorgeous clear blue sky always make a perfect backdrop.

The races proved to be quite comical as some folks had a hard time staying in their canoes...very tippy!

I loved the variety of colored canoes. You know...me and colors.

Big puffy dark clouds rolled in.

Dogs played fetch.

Kids played in the water and sand.
Everyone ate BBQ and Beer. As we left I thought I would get a shot of this...um...one of the things that make us Mammoth locals a little bit... wacky. Do you see that sign in the foreground in front of the Fireman's BBQ?

Here is a close up.

This area is a volcanic hazard but we picnic here...Crazy?

I have been playing on Pinterest again and I have put together several of the quotes/sayings that made me laugh, cry or smile. Some of them totally crack me up!
