Middle of the week update~

Happy Wednesday to you!

I’ve been playing around with new looks for the bloggy, so you might see some weird stuff come through while I’m experimenting, lol! 😉

I’ve been so “up to my eyeballs” busy lately that I’ve been only able to manage about 1 or 2 posts a week…please don’t feel neglected. 😛  It’s just that I have to take care of getting my life in order right now, and that includes getting my degree (finally!), working, spending time with family, household chores, and looming (these are the most front and foremost).  Everything else just sort of has to fit in the cracks where they appear along the way. 

I’ve got something special planned for you, though!  A new treat for Valentine’s Day!  You know you needed some loomy love sprinkled through your computer screen, right?  😉  Well…just stay tuned…all will be revealed, lol.

Well…what I’ve been up to lately~

resusci-annieSaturday, I learned to save Resusci Anne,  Jr, and Baby.

I had to go to Saturday school from 8am to 2pm, but I did learn invaluable, life saving skills.  I’ve learned these before over time, but did you know that to be CPR certified, you have to re-take the course every year?  It was amazing to see how many things had changed since the last time I had taken it.   Now I need to find one of those little key chains that have a breathing mask inside so that I’ll be ready for CPR at the split’s second’s notice.  😉

On the yarny front, Emily was crafting from this really excellent little book…if you like a bit of dark humor, lol!

creepy-cute-crochetThis is the book by Christen Haden: Creepy Cute Crochet.

We actually found it at my sister’s house while we were camped out during the flood, and my daughters’ asked if they could borrow it.  This book is so morbidly funny!  If you enjoy amigirumi, then you should definitely take a look inside these pages.  😉

tumble-the-dragontumble-from-the-sidedragonbackThis dragon was made using a modification of one of the patterns…it was originally going to be some kind of monster, but it sort of morphed as she was making it, and came out a dragon!  Isn’t it funny how projects can tend to do that?  Just click on the pics to see them larger.

Well…I’d better tottle off to class now, then work, then homework…sigh…

    Love the little dragon! I should pick up that book and teach myself proper crochet :).

    I got certified about 3 weeks ago…so much to know. I just hope that if I do need it that I will remember what I have to do.

    The dragon is darling! Not so creepy either. I too have been doing amigurumi crochet! There is a little booklet advertised on the back of one of my crochet magazines that I want to pick up but can’t seem to find it locally.

    Totally know about the recertifaction on the CPR thingy! I guess it is a good thing, aging minds tend to forget (mine, not yours, LOL).
