If you can't beat them,

Join them. I think that is what Smudge is thinking. What do you think? Either this or he can't wait until I leave the house before he rips every thing to shreads.

The face only a mother could love


Well Cheryl came over to claim her sweater! I told her if she didn't that I would keep it. That got her moving!

Here she is:


Ain't she the cutest? She looks great in it too!

Now I swear she had her arm when she came over, but she is so clever. You never know what tricks she will do!


I have moved on to another project YAY!!! I am using the yarn I dyed with Kool Aid. To be specific, the orange and blue yarn. I have decided to be like everyone else and make the same thing! Teva Durham's Turtleneck Shrug! How original of me huh?


I like this! I don't know if I will ever model it for you. Boobs. Remember? We will see........ Here is a close up shot of how the colors are blending. Neat huh?


I did some spinning too! I am a busy gal! I am getting better with it I think. It is not where I want to be yet, but I am getting the hang of it

The only part of this time of year I don't like is that I don't have much time with day light. I wish my pictures where better.

You are just cooking through that shrug- you really should model it, even if it is a boobless shot. :)

Wait, you aren't going to model because you have boobs or your aren't going to model because you don't have boobs or you aren't going to model because this is something you wear for your husband in bed?

I'm sooooo confused!

I even bought her the book Womans guide to starting your own business,(or something like that)She just cant seem to pull herself away from Big Brother Watching Over Me scene........Com'on peeps let's cheer her on. At least do it on the side Ruby.....
