  1. I crochet (and knit) a lot for an OB Ward on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. I made these sets for them. The bee was just a basic cocoon, I used a Bee Baby Hat pattern, on Ravelry (click on the link that says "For More Information"). The hungry caterpillar is an actual pattern.

    Handmade Cards for Summer

    I have been making cards recently, for summer letter writing. I have been on a "Bee" kick lately. I saw a cute "Bee Happy" card on Pinterest, so I tried to make one. Then I did the Bee-Lated Birthday card.

    Angel for a Co-worker

    I crocheted this for a Co-worker (one of my bosses); whose mother has stage four colon cancer. I brought a card in for everyone to sign. It's supposed to be a thread pattern, but I used a G hook and worsted weight yarn. Not the best picture, sorry..

    "Buffy" Dog

    I recently finished this toy, it's supposed to look like the knitted "Boofle" dog. (Which I LOVE!!) It's a free pattern, Dog Buffy Amigurumi toy pattern. I think you might have to sign up for the newsletter. Next time I make one, though; I think I will definitely use a bigger size hook and yarn. Those ears and arms and legs were pretty tight... Lol It came out even smaller than the original. Just thought I'd share..

    Easter Puff Pal (Bunny)

    I have had this pattern forever and finally crocheted one... I'm sending it to a little boy I sponsor, for Easter. It isn't amigurumi, so I felt like it was somewhat "holey", but.. I still think it's kind of cute. Thanks for looking.

    A "Super Bowl" Mohawk Hat

    Well I am almost embarrassed to post this (since they did so bad/lost), but... I crocheted our youngest son a Broncos Mohawk hat. It was "Wear your favorite team shirt/bring a can of soup for the 'Souperbowl'" (soup drive), at his school. We used to live in Colorado, and someone gave him a Broncos t-shirt (he was only three then). That was it, every time he would see anything Broncos, he would get so excited, and say "Yook, Mom! Brontos!!" (He couldn't enunciate his L's, or say Broncos..) He kind of outgrew it, but.. Just kind of fun.. Anyway, here's the hat (and the shirt I got him... Sigh... )

    Bow Ear Warmers

    Some of these are old, from before Christmas last year (gifts). The black one I recently did for myself (an "I don't feel like doing my hair" day.. ) I got the pattern from swellamy on Etsy. Great for last minute gifts (I should know, I did about six last Christmas, Lol!!)

    Santa Treat Bag

    I had been wanting to crochet this little Santa bag since I got the magazine it was in (Nov/Dec 1995 issue of Crafting Traditons.. ) It's only been a few years.. Anyway, I finally made one! I can tell you, I am not a fan of the Loop Stitch. But... Once I got going, it wasn't too bad. I hope to make more, to donate to Pine Ridge with goodies for Christmas this year.

    Dog Paw Stocking for Duke

    I had been wanting to crochet one for Duke (well, since we got him ). Since this will be his first Christmas. Someone had gifted me one for Jetta, for her first Christmas. I did the cuff like hers (it's different than the pattern); and I used The Hook Hounds Dog Bone Applique instead of the bone in the pattern; since I wanted the bone smaller. The pattern is from Red Heart, the Dog Paws Christmas Stocking.

    Getting Started on Gifts for 2013

    I finished Duke's Dog Paw Stocking. (Yay!!) I had been gifted one for our other dog two years ago, and I tried doing the cuff the same as the one she sent me. (It isn't the same as the one in the pattern.) I would like to maybe find some letters to put on each stocking, but.. We'll see. I'm also working on a Santa Sweater for Duke (it's getting cold outside!..)

    Getting Started on Gifts for 2013

    I finished one little Santa bag. The pattern is from the Nov/Dec 1995 issue of Crafting Traditions. (And, I have been wanting to make one since then.. Lol) I still need to get some glue and glue on the eyes and nose. But other than that, it is done.

    Getting Started on Gifts for 2013

    I have technically, actually, officially; started crocheting along for this CAL. I do have an excuse... We moved from Nevada, to Tennessee; two weeks ago today. So, I was a little bit sidetracked for the past few weeks.. I started a little Santa treat bag from an out of print magazine (Crafting Traditions). I am already having problems, so I will probably just do it my way. (I'm supposed to do Long Scs, and they are so confusing..) And, I bought yarn (we have a Hobby Lobby here- I've already been there twice ) for Duke's Dog Paws Stocking~ Two skeins of I Love This Yarn.

    Getting Started on Gifts for 2013

    I don't have much in mind to crochet this year. I did sooo much last year (8+ stockings, Santa pillow, kleenex box cover, plus more I know I'm forgetting..) that I think I burned myself out. And most everyone I know doesn't want anything crocheted. I do want to crochet a "Paw" stocking for our new puppy Duke, though. This is his first Christmas. Although he will be almost six months by Christmas time. I might add some more as I go along..
  14. Not into football. Sorry. But I do like U of M (University of Michigan). Only because I am from Michigan, and worked in Ann Arbor.
  15. I was 19 and I'm 43 now. So... (math hurts my head) 24 years.
