"Live Peace – Speak Kindness – Dwell in Possibility" ~Amanda Tapping

I’ve been away for too long.

My computer died late last summer and I have been without up until last week! I’ve been learning the way around my new laptop with a new OS, plus trying to catch up on all of the sites and communities I’m part of. It has been a very busy 1/2 of year for me though, just not with the things that I would have liked to get done. I haven’t had a chance to work on coming up with any new patterns for crochet or knit (yes, I have been getting into knit design, noting major though). I have a pair of socks I designed up on Ravelry that I am going to post here also to get a knitting page going.

I will be starting a site for my son also. He is trying to start his own little “business”. He has been crocheting these beautiful roses, no pattern, all his own design. He also has been making rose accessories, ie. bracelets, necklaces, rings, hair clips, scrunchies, etc., all crocheted, to sell along side of the rose flowers. The major part of this idea that he came up with is that 25% of the sales will got to Shunt Research and 25% will go to Autism Research, the rest he decided he will need for supplies and expenses. The best part is his reasoning for this idea, he himself has Asperger’s Syndrome (a form of Autism) and Shunted Hydrocephalus. He decided that he wanted to help other children like him. When I have it all worked out, I will be posting a link here 😀

💚Love those green eyes!💚 Pretty Miss Jade #cat #blackcat #greeneyedblackcat My baby girl, Drusilla MamaKitty. She turned 11yrs old this this year in July. She is the ruler of this house and the Mama of everyone. She can actually say words too, her favorites are “Mom”, “No”, and “Now”. Somewhere I have a video of her talking. She doesn’t talk as often now as she did when she was younger. I wish I had a better pic of her eyes though. She has the prettiest aqua colored eyes. #cat #myfurbaby Faerie Blossom Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers Diamond Tweed Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers This tank and shawl set are actually from 2 separate patterns that I found on Ravelry. The Wing Span Shawl made in Tunisian Crochet by Oana Oros and the Custom Tank Top Version # 1 by Jane Sharp. I really love them together and they’re both made with Bernat Softee Baby in the Girly Girl colorway. The shawl clip is a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. #crochet #crochettank #crochetshawl #crochetwrap #notmypatterns Another idea for my bag. It has a single strap that goes across the body. I’ve been using this one and have found a few things I’d like to change in the newer versions. #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetbag #crochetsinglestrapbackpackbag
