My first Wordless Wednesday Post.. My Cat

Seems alot of bloggers do a wordless Wednesday posts.. so I thought I would try.. lol..

This is my cat, Julius.. also known as Mr. Magoo.. Julius Magoo.. don't ask.. grin.  I am getting a new Logo (more about this later) and Jess is gonna make a cartoon cat based on my cat, Julius.. so I thought I would introduce you to him..

Julius was my birthday gift from my boyfriend last year.. we had lost a kitten that I was bottle feeding who looked similar to him.. so we adopted him.. he is a really BEAUTIFUL cat.. or at least I think so.. smile..

Just about finished with my newest slippers

It is a beautiful warm fall day.. it is 70 degrees.. and sunny.. think on the way home I will stop and get myself a coffee. smile.. Got a Dunkin' Donuts coupon... for a free muffin with the coffee. sounds good to me... hopefully they will have something cranberry.. smile

I finished the crocheting on the first slipper and am just about half done with the second.. tonight plan on finishing at least the crocheting part.. will of course need to put the football design on it. How far I get will depend on how my brain is.. I am really tired today.. (hence why I want to stop for a coffee)..

Here are the pictures of the completed part of the slipper.. you can see where I have to finish off a yarn that is hanging.

 You can see a difference in the softer yarn.. cant wait to see and show you the completed ones..

I have known Jess for years.. first through Itsy's Fund (an animal rescue resource), where she did our website and logos.. and through emails.. I absolutely love her work.. Love it enough that I am gonna have her make me a new logo for my website and Etsy Store.. that is just mine.. smile.. can't wait.. first I got to get myself organized.. cos she needs pics from me.. smile. Anyways.. she does all sorts of artwork.. invitations, buttons, wall art, pet bowls.. if you can put her art on it.. she probably can do it..

   This is one of her newest items is for Christmas.. and boy.. it is soooo adorable..I can see these on holiday
   cards.. or even in decorations..

You can see a lot of her new items on her Facebook page.

Sunday Update.. Football Slippers

I had time so decided to do a Sunday Update.. smile.. thought you would like to see my progress on my newest slippers.. I am using Vanna Yarn.. which is softer than the Red Heart I used on the other football booties. Sure makes a difference..

This is where I ended on Thursday night.. I had only the first couple of rows of the toe..

Last night.. I worked more on the slipper while watching a really scary movie.. so alot of times I just sat with the yarn in my lap.. lol..

Since it is a larger size.. it is taking me a bit longer.. this picture is ithe slipper inside out.. the back part is easier to do, inside out for me.. Will have more pictures on Tues.. Monday of course will be my Shout Out.. so check for it.

Very busy day today.. again.. and more info on my slippers!

I am going to be very busy for the next two weeks.. so either my posts will be short or not at all.. I have alot of running around to do in the day time.. and my evenings have to get my crocheting done as I have a ton of items I need for the sale at the end of Oct.. and I am falling behind.. already I have cancelled three additional designs I wanted for that.. simply cos I wont have time to make them..

I did get my blue and red football slippers done.. now have started the brown and off white ones.. I will have pics of both of them in the next day or so..

Here is a link to the pattern I used.. my first pair didnt come out as nice as these.. but still cute.. I know my second one will be better.. smile..

Crochet Pattern 44 - Toy Football and baby boy football booties, Photo prop

This pattern is by Cathyren.. I have to say I do love her patterns.. I am sure I will be buying more.. smile.

Finished the order..

Sorry I didnt get on here yesterday.. somehow life always seems to get in my way of my schedule. and I had to get this order done and out today.. I will do the Shout Out later this week.. instead of a regular update...

This order was for 5 light blue and white dishclothes.. and I wanted to make most of them different.. smile. These are made with Simply Soft.. which gives it both the softness of cotton, but the lightweight of acrylic yarn and it drys alot faster than regular cotton yarn.. I love it for household items.. and make them for my own kitchen.. You can see the link on Etsy for more colors I have made.

Another Three Towels + Update

Well.. I just about got my extra order of dishcloths done.. should finish on the weekend.. made a few different than I did before.. so hope to take pictures of them..

Wanted to show two more towels I finished.. the first one is called Pumpkin Season.. it is a scarecrow in a pumpkin field.. much more colorful and bright compared to some of the ones I have made.  I topped it with a green topper and edged it in a yellow which matched the button.

Giving Thanks - This is perfect for both Fall and Thanksgiving.. nice to add some color to your kitchen.. it would look nice in a rustic kitchen, or a kitchen that is decorated in sunflowers..

This towel has bright orange pumpkins with bright orange sunflowers.. and topped with a bright orange topper edged in light brown.. it has a orange and white sunflower button to close it..

This towel has some bright Maple Leaves decorating it.. in red, yellow and gold.. I topped it with light brown and edged it in yellow.. matching the maple leaf button.. it is also good for a rustic kitchen. as well as one with wooden cabinets..

I dont have a link to them as they are sold already, but I will take special orders for them..

Thank you for looking at my pictures.. smile.. I will see you all again on Monday.. as Sunday will be too busy for me to come and visit..

Then we stopped at Aldi's and got something to make fast (dont do that too often).. got some fried chicken and some other items I forgot last time..

Then we got an unexpected visit from my son and the Grandboys.. grin.. nice to see them.. smile..
