Happy Groundhog's Day....

(blogger is being weird today....hope all the pics below show up for you...sorry 'bout that!)
Starting off of course with the prediction of an EARLY SPRING by our own Phil in Pennsylvania!!!! Woo-hoo!!!! You go, PHIL! (just wanted to note that to yinz, guys!)

And, keeping with a animal theme here...you all agree with me that I'm not a Chihuahua....but dang if I didn't take that test again and came up the same. Maybe I'm a Chihuahua trapped in another breed body....hey, it could happen!!!
Anyone, yinz guys know how I like Maxine.....well I made it my mission to find out the name of Maxine's dog. It's Floyd! I LOVE that dog....probably more than Maxine!!! That dog is so much my Chloe in personality.....I mean look at those ears then check the sidebar for Chloe! If Chloe did human things, she would do exactly as Floyd does. When you look at a Maxine cartoon, always check out Floyd...he's hilarious!!! If I could change Chloe's name to Floyd, I would! (I don't want to give HER a complex, tho, Kare would kill me....so, don't worry, I won't)
Anyway, remember that cross stitch I was working on with the Kitty List? Well I finished it doing a flat fold with the help of some really nice ladies who cross stitch. I think it turned out pretty nice....and doing the flat fold was sooooo easy!




I also finished up my first of four ornaments for my babies....I love Brittercup Designs...I think I told you that already though. This one is just mounted on a piece of cardboard and padded underneath. I did the same on the backside only I used a little christmas fabric. The cording was handmade using floss....and boy was that ever easy and nice. I added a little bell for decoration.


I've started the Britty Kitty from the JCS 2005 ornament mag...I'll let you know how that works out too.

I've also crocheted calorimetry headband that I found over at Bron's blog....I really like this. I'm going to give it to my son's gal pal (the model shown) as they will be going snowboarding this weekend (see the pic of the two lovebirds on my sidebar....arent' they sweet!)




So, you see I'm doing a little bit of everything. I've also started another fleece edging with the rifle green fleece and the cami yarn....pics to follow soon, I promise
That's about it for now...getting ready for a chilly Super Bowl weekend....So, till next time, yinz crazy guys.....

Love the way you finished your kitty list. I haven't tried a flat fold yet, but I have something in mind that I'm going to finish that way. I hope mine turns out as nice as yours! Happy Blogiversary!!

Your crocheted Calorimetry looks great!

hey Lucy!
You've really been busy.
All your projects are great, as usual. I did a quick peek at the flat fold link. interesting.
The headband is really nice. You're lucky you have a model that doesn't eat the items. haha
PS: Chloe is a much better name than Floyd!! I dated a Floyd once and he was not nice.

I love the flat fold and the headband! Hmm, I might have to give the headband a try. Is it easy enough for a beginning knitter?

Cindy said...

The flat fold looks awesome as does the ornament. Congrats on both of them!! I also love that headband, if my hair was still long, I would want one of them!!

Great job on the projects, Lucy - love 'em!


As for that groundhog...he lies! Sorry, I really believe it to be true :(
