Then, I see another package in the mail! I received two more squares for my friendship ghan. I'm really started to get a lot of them. I can't wait until that afghan is done.
On top of the squares, I got four bamboo crochet hooks. I discovered how much I love bamboo hooks in May. I used one for my Entrelac Crochet class. So, you see, I had to have all of the sizes!
I love that Pipsy's paws snuck into the top of the picture. I almost cropped it out, but decided that it was too cute to edit.
Thank you to my elves and to my fairy godmother. Y'all sure can make a girl feel special.

I received a package in the mail today. It was from a fellow Crochetville member (crochetville.org). There are people who send out RAOK's (random acts of kindess) to other members. It's just a way to bring a smile to another human's face.
It definitely worked for me! I am so excited about everything I received. It's just wonderful.
The crocheted item in red is a 12" square for my friendship ghan. I'm collecting 6" and 12" squares. This is the first 12" square I've received. I think I have enough squares to start assembling now. :D I'm going to add some of my own squares also, but I want it to be mostly squares from other people. It wil lbe fantastic to wrap up in after a long day....an afghan full of hugs.

The picture below is a baby boy burial set. I donate something to the NICU Xavier was in every year for his birthday. This is the second year I've done burial sets. I'm also working on getting 30 preemie hats made. I'd like to get at least one more burial set done as well. I have the gown almost finished. The second set will be for a girl.
This is my first doily. It looks nothing like it's supposed to, but I can't quite figure out what I did wrong. It was a learning experience. My second one already went much better.

As with any new blog, I have to post pictures of my babies!
Above is my "little" Oliver. He's a very big cat. He was about six months old in that picture.
That one is Cooper. He loves snuggling with anything I've touched including my yarn and my purse.
This is Pipsy. She is snuggled up in her favorite "pirate ship". She is my only girl and also the oldest. She is the queen of the house...just ask her.The last picture is Jackson. I took this picture after her injured his paw. He ripped out the two middle claws on his back paw. It was a pretty serious kitty injury, but he's fine now. Jackie is my sweetheart and my favorite kitty of all time (shh...don't tell the other cats).
