Hi again

Hi everyone, here are my babies. Max is letting Crystal get close to him every once in a while now, I'm so glad because I want them to love each other!!

I've been busy with testing a doily for a designer from Crochetville. I'm not finished yet because I'm not really good at thread crochet and especially such an intricate one, here is the link to the post of the doily, you can see what it's supposed to look like when finished.
I really wanted to test this one because it's my birthstone color, even though I'm not making mine turquoise, I'm doing mine in a different color because I couldn't find the turquoise thread here. I'll probably find it after I've finished but by then it will be too late! I will definately post the picture when I'm finished and I hope I can do it justice.
Ciao for now, I'm off to get crocheting

Max and new sister

Happy Valentines Day!! It's been awhile since I've updated.

Well now I have something to show, Max now has a little sister. I got a chihuahua on Friday. She's 2 1/2 yrs old and her name is Crystal. I was a little afraid of how Max would take to her but ignoring her was not what I expected. I prefer that to what I though he might do.

Today I was able to snap a picture with them not too far from each other and so that's what I've posted here. They are so cute....I'm allowed to say that about them, a mothers perogative!

Have you missed seeing Max!!

Max loves his new toy, and beleive it or not he hasn't killed the squeeky out of it, that is so rare he usually kills it right away, but we found a toy that he loves and didn't feel the need to kill.
He even falls asleep with it in his mouth, he doesn't let go of it very often.

I also finished my Pound Puppy I was making, he's the large size one he's 18" long, that's almost the size of Max! That's another FO off of my WIP list....Yeah!!

Love Bug

This is my finished Love Bug from Annies Attic free pattern of the day Wed. Feb.1st.
I ran out of pink and so he doesn't have hands yet, I'll buy more of the same color and add them later on!
I didn't use the sparkly jewels, I sewed red heart buttons on instead. I also used a black button on a white button for the eyes. I think he turned out cute! bzzzzzz bzzzzzz

It's Groundhog Day!

It's feburuary 2nd and the anniversary of when my family came to live in Canada from Spain. We arrived on a snowy cold day and have lived in the same part of Ontario for 45 years now.

I'm quite happy living here and very proud to be a Canadian.
