Here is the Happy Couple:

Meet Harvey

I'd like to introduce to Harvey, Mr. E's new friend.
I made him using the Pack o'Puppies Mitts from Spud & Chloe. I've already started his friend, Erma. Mr. E knows how to put it on his hand, but doesn't quite understand how to use him yet. I tried hard to get a photo of him playing with Harvey. He moved too fast for me. Stay tuned though, I'm not giving up!

Sorry To Disappear

Hi there, I didn't mean to disappear for a over a week. It's not nice to be a swap hostess and then disappear on people.

Anyway, I've been taking care of Mr. E for two days. He caught the head cold that Grampa and I had and couldn't go to daycare.
He is learning all kinds of new behaviors these days. Yesterday he found a photo of Grampa and I. He brought it to me. Pointed to Grampa and said, "grampa, grampa". Then he started kissing the photo. He made sure the photo was close to him all day long. With Grampa traveling right now, I guess it's cool that he knows who he is.
Like any child he hates to get his nose wiped when he has a cold. Ever since I've had him I always say, "boogie alert, boogie alert" when I need to wipe his nose. Yesterday he had a big, juicy sneeze. When I said boogie alert he toddled over to the desk where the tissue box is and waited for me to get a tissue to wipe his nose. Granted, I could only get one good swipe in before he wiggled away. But one swipe is better than none, especially when he is ready for it.

Winter Tote Swap News:
Everyone has been sent their partner and should have contacted her by now. If you didn't receive your partner, let me know. Likewise, if you haven't heard from your partner, let me know as well.

Also, I've created a blog list of all the participants. Please check your link and make sure I have it correct. I had links for everyone except Denyse. So, Denyse, if you have a link, please send it to me. Be sure to pop in to other swapper's blogs and say hello!

Have you chosen your tote bag pattern yet? I have about half a dozen I want to try. I just don't know which one to choose.

It's A Pumpkin or is it a Jack O'Lantern?

Is it a pumpkin or a jack o'lantern?
I'm crocheting Mr. E a pumpkin sweater for Halloween. I finished the back before I started my shawl. I finished the front between yesterday and today. I noticed when I took the photo that you can see the difference between the hanks of yarn. Although you can't see it other wise in normal light.

What do you think of Pumpkin so far?

The Finished Shawl

We enjoyed an extraordinary wedding weekend in Chicago. The couple was gorgeous. The venue was stunning. The food was over the top.

I debuted my shawl at the wedding and received many wonderful comments.

Have you signed up for the 3-2-1 Winter Tote Bag Swap? Only two more days to sign up!

Happy Creativersary to Me/Random Sports Thoughts

Six years ago this very day (and in this very same hotel actually) I re-entered the creative realm. I started my first quilting class from Quilt University on that day. I don't remember the exact class, but I believe it was their Starting From Scratch Class. I have come a long way in six years from quilting to stitching to crocheting and loving it all.

This weekend hubby and I are attending the Deutsche Bank Championship. This is the 8th tournament and we've attended every one. Walking the golf course and waiting between pairings gives me lots of thinking time.

Here are my random sports thoughts from today:
  1. Will someone tell Tom Brady to get a haircut?
  2. Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis need to get healthy for spring training next April.
  3. Who is going to have more interceptions this year: Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Bret Favre or Tom Brady?
  4. The NFL Season starts Thursday night. I can't wait!
  5. Will Shaq really help the Celtics this year?
  6. Will Mr. E win our family pick 'em football pool this year?
If you need me to explain any of the above, let me know.

There is still to sign up for the 3-2-1 Winter Tote Bag Swap. Won't you join?
