See all my ends off in the corner? Little hands love them!
Have you noticed yet that almost every pic I take where something is on the floor you always see little feet? lol, everytime I go to take a pic, they all come running saying get my feet!! So I have no choice cuz they won't move! Anyways....
I also finished my Noahs Ark Baby Blanket. This one is from the May 2008 Crochet! mag for those of you who don't know. I made a little sun to go on it too though just for something else. I also made a little octopus. It shows up fine on the blanket, but in the pics you can barely see it. But can you find my little oops? haha, I didn't notice it until it was too late to fix it. let me know if you see it.
Well, thats it for today. I hope you enjoy my first WIP Wednesday and come back next week to see my progress! In the meantime, send in some links to your WIPs!

Another pic I'll show you is of these little Cowboy boots and hat I made for a baby girl. I thought they were so adorable.
Here's the Cowboy Booties
And here's the Cowboy Hat.
I used a smaller hook to make the hat really tiny for a newborn. I know she won't get much use out of them, but aren't they adorable?!?!
And I wanted to show you another pic. It was my brothers bday and I made him the perfect cake! He won't let me put pics of him eating it up, lol, but I can at least show the cake. Now this is NOT meant to offend anyone. It was just a humorous cake that I made. I hope you all get a laugh out of it.
Look, I figured out how yo hyperlink!!! yay!
Also, I am going to start doing some stuff, like every Wednesday I will take pics of my WIPS and post for WIP Wednesday. Maybe you can send along some of yours too. And then I thought on Fridays could be Favourites Fridays, where I'll show you something I really like that week. Just some ideas. And I'll start tomorrow.Well, see you then!

This ones my Moms
This is for my MIL
Another thing I did today was make some chair booties! A couple of weeks ago, Quenton got out of the chair and somehow ground something into the floor to cause this!!
DH was furious! He said to me"You make stuff all the time! Can't you make something for these chairs?" We did have those felty things on them but they apparantly didn't work too well, so I made these. I think they're kinda cute. I made them from yarn that I have no plans for, so it won't be missed.
You can see another little(but long) scratch here too.
Well, I don't know if Ill be able to get on here tomorrow so I'll wish you all a Happy Mothers Day!!!! Oh and I've been thinking of some fun things can do on this blog, I've been reading lots of blogs lately and I love them, just wish I was as creative as some of you guys! But I'm thinking.......

The grocery bags are all full of UFOs, because when I get like this, my mind wanders too much be able to stay on one thing, and I just get way too anxious for starting a new project!
I've now got out my beading supplies and tons of crochet stuff everywhere! Yes, that is my kitchen table, lol. Good thing I've go 3 of 4 still in highchairs! The oldest just pushes everything to the side and its not like I have had the chance to actually sit and eat in a couple of years. Constant wails of something or other during dinner. Could you imagine if I had out my scrapbook stuff too...which reminds me, I should make up a couple of Mothers Day cards. Oh, I also have x-stitch stuff here too., but its contained pretty well in the little black box. Dh says I have too much stuff, but whos buying it for me?? He is! I should show him some of the pics I have seen from some of you guys!! How I envy you!!!!! I do have a couple of closets pretty full too,but thats about it.
Well, on another note, look what Quenton found in the yard!! Awwww...its so cute! I told him to stay away cuz Mama bird would get angry. He just zoomed in for this pic with the flash off. I've never seen baby birds before. I love not living in the city!! Well, I should go tidy some of my mess up, lol. Will post project pics tomorrow.

I received my puffy from Joye about a week ago and I LOVE IT! She made this tiny little knitted pin, its so cute. Its in my hutch, so no little hands can find it.
Here's a pic of everything I got.
And I tried to get a close up on the pin. This was the best shot I got from 5 tries. Grrrr, I thought I had a good camera, oh well, I must have been to close. But you can still see how cute and tiny it is.
Lastly, for tonight, I've been wanting to make this Starburst hot pad for a while, so I finally did.
The assembly instructions were a little unclear at first, so I searched through Ravelry and someone on there cleared it right up by saying how you should sew through the TOP sc of each square. So, now they're easy and I love them! I wanna make one next with no white, but I'll have to find a matching colour and ombre...maybe cottontots? hmmmm... Well,I've got lots of Mothers Day stuff on the hook right now and will post as soon as its all done..hopefully tomorrow? Bye!!
