Good news and bad news

Bad news first, my blog has fallen to the wayside as I have discovered and it has become a compulsion.  The good news is that I may be related to all of you!  Hopefully my OCD will bring me back to my blog soon!

He's gonna be OK!

It looks like with a little more facial grooming, Yorkie is going to be fine! Touch-and-go there for a while. Maybe I'll give him a final trim tomorrow morning, when I have not had any wine ;-) I might cut too much tonight and would hate to have to wait for it to grow out.

Phelting is Phun

I really like needle felting!  I used to think it was really weird and a little gross, but I think that is because I had only seen felted fruit and soap and I could not make the connection of why wool would be involved in those things.  But animals are already made of fur, so it makes sense to make them out of fur!  right?  and besides, everything handmade has a weird aspect to it, if you think about it.  Anyhow, I made the pink, eyeless bear first.  He will have eyes, just haven't done it yet.  The rabbit was next and then the dog.  I put wire in the dog so that she can be poseable, and as a progression of learning how to do this. Hmm, too bad I did not pose her for the photos :)  My next step in the progression was going to be adding long hair, and this is where I think my success has faltered.  I have no idea what to do next with this poor little yorkie (?)  He obviously needs a trim of some sort, and eyes and a nose.  Maybe I could groom him to look like a panda!

Thank you Coby for the Kreativ Award!  Rarely as an adult are we awarded anything!  Cool ;-)

The rules for the award are:
1. Thank the person that give it to you.
2. Copy then logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominate you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that nobody knows.
5. Nominate 7 kreativ bloggers.
6. Post link to the 7 blogs that you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know that you nominate them.

7 things:

1.  I am the proud owner of a 20 lb. cat.  He used to be gorgeous until my dog went on a diet and I started feeding him only at night so that my dog would stop eating cat food, which was making her fat.  He has teenage disorders such as cutting (he chews on his right leg for no reason that my vet or I can find other than neorosis) and bulemia (he eats an pukes, eats and pukes, eats his puke and pukes)  So anyhow, now he gorges himself at night and since I have two cats, I have no control over how much he eats.  He is fat and I love him.
2.  I drink 8-10 cups of coffee a day 
3.  I love all food
4.  I also love running, so it all works out ok
5.  I just tried needle-felting wool, so my fingers are full of holes
6.  My attention span decreases with age
7.  I used to be an EXCELLENT driver, but since the three kids have come along I am just awful, which sucks, since they are usually with me when I drive

I pass the award on to the last 5 comments on my blog (who do not have it posted on their blog already ;-):

Leftover pink icing project

I had so much leftover pink frosting, that I had to make a cake.  Actually more than one. I like the sweets, but boy are they tedious!
