41  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hat's for 2 young girls on chemo on: June 20, 2009 06:34:29 AM
I was sitting around the hosptial last time I was there for my son chemo and I made 2 hats for friends that we have made while there. The skully one was for a young lady of 11. The skull also glows in the dark. The purple one was for a young lady who is 4 and loves the color purple.

42  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Suporting our Canadian Troops on: May 13, 2009 04:42:55 AM
Every year for Canada Day I like to make the kids something unique to wear. A few weeks ago at Fabricland I found some wonderful camo material. Well that's when insperation struck me for this years outfits. So far I only have DD done. A wonderful little sundress that will make it's daybue (sp) on Canada Day. She'll then wear it whenever after that.

43  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Very rare large purple garden fish on: May 04, 2009 01:18:49 PM
So I'm coming back from the hospital with my son and what do we spot in the lilac bush, a rare purple garden fish. We approacted it very slowly so as not to scare the fish. They are after all very nervous creatures. Once we got a good look at it, not only was it a garden fish but the very rare large size. They aren't seen in the wild this big very often.

Well of course being a 3 yr old my son tries to catch it. So the fish swims away. Very strange seeing a fish swimming out of water I have to say. He landed near the mini irises this time. As he was swimming I discovered that they make a wonderful jingle sound when swimming.

I got one picture of him there before he spotted me and swam over to hide else ware. You can see by the expresion in his eye that he's very cautious of what's going on around him.

Then our dog runs outside and startles him. He tried to swim up the branches.

Well he got all his fins tangled in the branches. So I very gentely removed him from them. I then brought him inside to make sure he was not hurt.

I really like how his tail looked and tried to get a good picture of, but alas, he is a wild animal and just won't stop moving it.

Since he is unhurt I tried to release him back into the wild. He just wouldn't go. So I'm going to keep him here for a few months and then he will go and live with a very special little girl.
44  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Shippy the Tiny hippo (very pic heavy) on: April 01, 2009 07:05:43 PM
Well today I had to take DS in for a blood transfusion. What do I turn around and find sitting on my cell phone, a teeny tiny hippo.

As you can see he is very sweet. He has the most adorable little tail I've ever seen.

He was very curious about all the medical equipment there. He tried to have his blood pressure taken. We just couldn't find a cuff small enough for him.

One of the kind nurses told him that if he wanted to play with DS then he needed to keep his hands clean. So off he went to get them all clean.

He sure is one adventurous hippo. I almost had a heart atack when I saw him up here.

After that I told him he needed to stick to helping DS or he would have to leave. So like any good hippo would do he went off to help. He learnt all about the IV pump.

He got so good at it, the nurses asked if he would keep an eye on it while DS got his blood.

When it was time to go, he tried to get the coats out of the locker for us. He soon found that he was just too little to open the door.

Since he was just a helpful hippo I though it would be best to bring him home. I did let him know that since he was such an adventurous hippo I would have to find him a new loving home. So tomorrow he will be moving in with a dear friend of mine so I can still visit him. We did take him out to dinner though to say thank you for all the hard work he did today.

I'm going to miss you Shippy, hope you like your new home!
45  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Large Toddler blanket img heavy on: March 28, 2009 12:15:28 PM
Well I started to teach myself to crochet when I was in the hosptial last time with Xander. I started to make a blanket for Isabelle. It took on a life of it's own! Any way I finished weaving the ends in this morning. The pic is done on a queen size bed so you get an idea of the size. The last one where you see Chicken on it again shows the best true colors. For some reason they keep looking really washed out in the others. Hope you enjoy looking!

Last but not least, an action shot with Xander. He swipped the blanket on Fri when I was finishing the ruffle. He was supper excited when I started his own blanket today.

46  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first project on: March 16, 2009 07:22:40 PM
Well a couple weeks ago I decided to try and teach myself to crochet. I had hours to fill while sitting around in the hospital with my DS. So I got some yarn and started to look around on the net for help. Well I have started to work on a blanket for DD but silly me in my not knowing of crochet I have been making it in all double crochet and it will be big enough for a single bed by the time I'm done. So since I'm an intant gratifaction type person I needed something smaller to work on and finish. So off to the store again to find more yarn, because you can never have enough, and found some I liked with a free pattern for a hat on it. So this being my first time reading a pattern and only just learning to crochet I have to say I'm pretty happy with it. Are there mistakes, sure but the 2 yr old who will be wearing it dosen't care so why should I!

47  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / My poor finger on: February 27, 2009 02:27:06 PM
Ok so I started to crochet a blanket for DD on Mon. It's all done in double chain stich as that's the only one I know right now. I've taught myself that one off the net. Any way since I'm trapped in a hospital room I've been able to get a lot done and my poor little finger is just really starting to get sore. Is there anything that will make it less sore as the yarn is pulled over it?
48  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A tie for Ollie on: February 26, 2009 06:03:48 PM
Ok so a quick back story. On Dec. 28 my son was diagnosed with lukemia. We have been in the hospital almost non stop since then due to issues. He was having a very hard time adjusting to being here at first. He's 3 so I can't say I blame him. Well here at the childrens hospital they have a wonderful threapy clown named Ollie. He really brough DS out of his shell. I wanted to make a speical thank you for him doing this for us. So I made him a tie. Here it is and an action shot as well. C&C welcome.

49  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Portrait of the kiddos on: January 18, 2009 10:43:44 AM
Ok I can't take credit for the drawing but I did do the framing! A friend of mine is an artist who really enjoys doing portraits. I asked her to do one of my kidss for FIL for Christmas. We traded her time drawing for a HUGE crockpot of chili. I think it was a wonderful trade for all involved. I'm just so happy with how it turned out that I have to share it with all of you. When we asked DS who was in the pic he said my sister and her brother!

50  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Gift for nephew on: January 18, 2009 10:15:06 AM
Since I find it hard to pick out toys for infants I decided to make something for nephew this year for Christmas. So a surfing I went untill I found something that caught my eye. Well I found this cube tut and thought well that looks great. I would post a link to the tut but it's on my other computer so I'll have to post it later to give credit. Once I got going on it, seemed that it was going to take forever. Well I was kinda right. Just felt like forever with all the short seams getting the squares togethere. So here's the cube which he seemed to like. Hard to tell with LO's sometimes! As you can see it's a little larger then I was going for. Oh well it still looks good!
