Shock!

I was playing around in TripleClicks
just seeing if I could actually WIN something
and got the shock of my life!
I WON!
Not some little thing but something
I had really wanted!
I won an E-Book Reader!
No, not the usual ones that
everyone wants, but to me,
something better!
I won a
SkyTex Primer!

No, I didn't pay an arm and a leg for it either. 
It normally sells for $119.99.
I actually won it for....
hold your breath...




$5.89!
plus cost of bids that came out to roughly $13.50 so,
I paid about $20.00 for an item that sells for around $70.00
on the 'other' auction sites.
Oh, and this is new, never opened,
and has it's own cover/carrying case.

Here it is again, and remember, all this for around $20.00!


If you look it up you'll see everything it does!
Watch movies, read most E-Books,
and it uses Adobe!
It also has a magnify function for those of us
that have trouble reading the fine print sometimes. lol
Got a pattern you don't feel like printing out?
This reader sets it in your lap
without having papers spread out all over the place!
I LOVE IT!
I haven't been able to put it down lately. lol
Soooooooooooooo, if you want toys like these
for less than half the price,
go bidding in
There's also a link to TripleClicks on your right
over there at the top------------------>
Now that I've shown you what I won,
I'm going back to my Primer and continue my knitting.

Now for the Matchbox...

..... to go with the rug!
It's not done but almost ready to be put together. ;)



I'm still adding liners to them since I
realized wood would catch on the yarn! lol

Friday, June 17, 2011

I'm so sorry.

I know it's been a while since I've added anything new,
but I do hope to be adding more in the coming weeks.
Things have gotten away from me for a bit but 
seem to be settling down now.
Hopefully, I'll have something for you in the next couple of days.
Again, I sincerely apologize for falling behind.

It's finished! :D

Well except for the backing that I'm going out to look for next week. ;) I'm also considering using the red for the outline that will help hold the backing on. Any thoughts?

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Almost finished!

I have the top and bottom borders to put on then it will be all done! ☺ ☺ ☺
I also filled in the part that the instructions said to cut out. I think I like it better this way. ☺

It's coming along..

I've been working on it here and there so it's coming along fine.. I figure it'll be about 2 1/2 feet wide but not sure what I'm going to use it for so I'll just keep knitting until I figure it's done. lol I'm really liking this pattern though. ☺ ☺ ☺

So far....

All Squares done!

Ok, I've finally gotten around to getting all 6 squares done but I'm still feeling a bit off about the open stars in the middle of the 3. Anyone have any ideas on what to put in them? I was thinking about matching the stars from the other squares. Other than that, all I need to finish is the border, *I'm also not happy with the way they've done that*, so, I'm still thinking on 2 parts. lol Here's all 6 finished squares:

Another Project...

... I've been slowly working on.. lol Do a little bit at a time since it's so time consuming.

Friday, March 4, 2011

Finished Square...

.... for the hearth rug. Now only 1 1/2 squares left. 6 small ones if you want to count them that way.. lol

Another book came that I had been waiting for!


And it also has my favorite saying in it! ☺ ☺ ☺

Just a Little off Subject. lol

We've had a storm come through here for the last 2-3 days and it left us with snow. Yup, snow in Southern Cal. :O lol In the desert no less! Here's some pics of my surroundings during and after:

This is to the north of us during the storm:


More northwestern:


After the storm, first 2 are northern and the 3rd is eastern that we couldn't see during the storm:

Another Square for the Hearth Rug

Finished a couple more squares yesterday since my net was being a pain. This is the last design for the second large square. The square below and this one (2 each) will make one full size square of which I need to make 6 total. The 3 large ones are already done. Now I have 9 more small ones to do. :| lol

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Another design square...

So now I've got 3 squares done, 2 of the last post and this one. I'm really liking the colors. ☺ This is one of the  4 small squares that will make up one large squares like the one 2 posts (or is it 3?) below. lol

Monday, February 21, 2011

First Square. :D

Well, I have the first couple of squares done for the hearth rug and still have 12 more to go. 1 large and 11 small. I'm a bit unsure of what they want me to do though. Not in the instructions but in the design itself. They want me to cut out a star shape in the middle of one of the squares and leave it open. I'm not really sure I want to do that since I've always tossed rugs with holes in them. lol So what do you all think? Should I cut it out or add something in it?

Sunday, February 20, 2011

*Sigh* Still waiting...

.. for the book I ordered to get here! :'(
In the meantime, I'm still working on the Hearth Rug from the Fireside book I've had forever. lol

New Project

So, I've been having this problem with getting into my current projects so I went out and bought the supplies for another project. *shame on me* lol Sooooooooo, without further ado, my newest project that I plan on starting today. ☺


I plan on starting on the hearth rug first
with a few adjustments on color of course. ;)

Oh the Horror! :'(

In getting out one of my projects last night that I wanted to work on, I discovered, to my heartache, that the pattern for it was missing! I'm really going to have to search every square inch of my place to find it because I just love this and it's almost done! It's so beautiful with the gold accents, I had to pick it up.

Another Current Project

While trying to ignore yesterday, I once again tried to work on this.
This is a king size afghan I've been working on for a pretty long time. lol
I stopped working on it for a while because the one I was making it for
up and moved away and I couldn't think of anyone else to give it to.
Now I have someone in mind that I think might enjoy it.
So I've once again continued to work on it.


Monday, February 14, 2011

Ok, I'm bad.
Didn't do anything in the way of crafts yesterday.
In my defense, I took out a latchhook
I've been working on and discovered
that some of the yarn had faded. *sigh*
So it looks like I'll be undoing a bunch
of it and redoing it all over again.
:(

Plastic Canvas Table Runners

I've discovered that I have collected
quite a few books on
various crafting projects
that I had completely forgotten about.
:O
Yes, I know, shame on me. lol

So, here is one
that I've worked in.

In this book I've done these 2 table runners:
I can't show you the finished product
since I've already given them away as gifts,
but I can show you the last piece
that has yet to be delivered.
This is the final piece of the
Christmas Table Runner
on the right of the second image.
I do wish I could show you the final projects
since they came out beautifully.
Maybe next time. ;)
