Oh and remember the Woodpecker saga of last year? Almost a year to the day, the little bastard is back and brought a friend. Elena insists it's his wife, but I don't care-now the two of them take turns on different parts of the house doing a Morse code thing and lemme tell you, something has gotta give. When I can finally sleep past 6:00 AM, these two have the audacity to start their little game at around 5:45 AM and continue until about 8:00 AM. This is the second morning in a row they have come to visit and I'll need the damn owl thing and honestly, I can't imagine moving the owl every couple days for the little pecker heads (name seems appropriate) as the Division of Game and Wildlife suggested because "they can be smart".
I do have some FO's and WIP's going on though (all little stuff).
First, an FO: Ele's (did I mention I adore her??)Crazy Easy Kitschy Kozy Tissue Box Cover.. It was crazy easy and fast and although I had some kilt pins, I couldn't find any neat beads to work on it-so I used a plastic little ring thing, sc around it and then did a flower and sewed a button in the middle. It's for my mom, the colors match her living room. I used Sugar N Cream's new Confectionery Collection in Maple Sugar.
Next, some WIP's:
First off, another Weaved Hot Pad, same colors, just have to weave them together. This will be a little surprise for someone. It's been done for a week, but the weaving is holding me back.
Next, another one's of Ele's patterns (okay, I begged her to do this pattern and now I need her to write one up using worsted weight for winter, more of a tam in her spiral method, no seams-hint if she reads this :)). This pattern is her Crazy Easy Everyone Needs a Slouchy Beret pattern
. For this I am using the Pakucho Organic Cotton from Elann in Cafe. Elann's price is half of what it is anywhere else and they have that cheaper shipping choice if you are only getting 3 skeins (total shipping was like 3 bucks).
So for all those I owe an email to (Tina especially) and for those who have been wondering...still here, just not enough time lately. Now, to figure out what to do about those damn woodpeckers........
