Lucy’s Apple

5 Apr

Neice2 has a birthday this month, and guess what she’s getting!

Om to the Nom!

 

Her very own apple, crocheted by Yours Truly.  I’m guessing by now that my sisters-in-law will have discovered my pattern – their kids are all getting apples from me this year.  Luckily, I started this little guy in plenty of time to counteract the pregnancy-induced finger swelling, carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis, so Miss Lucy will have a delightful Granny Smith to open on her Birthday!  Hooray!

 

I heard through the grapevine that Lucy’s having an owl themed party this year, so she’s also getting these, some super adorable hand-made bows constructed by a friend of mine:

And a card I made.

Owl?

 

Husband assures me that this card, which started out as a pile of paper circles and a bottle of glue actually looks like an owl

…but I can’t tell if he’s just humoring me. What do you think?  Is it owl-ish enough to actually look like an owl?  I’m hoping Lucy won’t care much one way or the other.  If she does, I’m hoping her mommy will quickly change the subject and distract Lucy back to her awesome APPLE (which actually looks like an apple)!

I’ve had to take the apple listings off of my Etsy shop for now – what with my decreased motor skills it would take me way longer than I feel comfortable with to get any orders out, but hopefully things’ll be back up and running in the near future.  In the meanwhile, my patterns are still available, so wander on over to a Happy Little Shop & see what you can see!

AND… Happy Birthday, Lucy!  We love you!

FPF: Parking Cone

1 Jul

You NEED to make these (and then you need to say VOILA, obviously).

After you make them, you NEED to take them on adventures.

Baby Parking Cone... or Angel at Baby Jesus's Birthday?!?

 

Lifetime Movie: Mommy Parking Cone Feels Nostalgic (that's me and my brother when we were still tiny and cute!)

Mommy Parking Cone Brushes up on her Pop Culture

 

After this, you NEED to give your parking cones to a child (I’m giving mine to my nephew) or else people will start to refer to you as “That Crazy Parking Cone Lady.”

THE END.

Oh, and here are the pattern links:

Happy Birthday, daD!

24 Jun

Today is my daD’s birthday! He’s turning… uhm… I don’t know, six hundred years old or something.  In honor of my old, old (really super old) daD, I thought you all might want to see some of his favorite things!

daD's back yard

 

daD's first grandbaby (playing with Auntie Melissa's water beads)

 

daD's fishies

 

daD's pond-side chats with family and a cuppa

 

daD's pond (he really likes the pond, okay?!?)

daD's freshly painted back fender

 

daD's lone wolf gas tank

 

So, to sum up, my daDdy loves fishies, grandbabies,  his pond, choppers, wolves, his pond, a nice cuppa, and his pond.

Oh, and also, he loves his pond.

Happy Birthday, daDdy! I love you!
