This is the best swap idea ever!!  I'm sending my info in now  Grin

I just wanted to add pics of my pitties
They both have their own Myspace, it's in my profile if you wanna add them lol.



Rayna is a rescue dog, the people that had her were trying to make her fight other dogs, but she wouldn't so they had her chained to a tree and were starving and beating her.  She's come a very long way since I've had her, and she is such an attention whore now, and she is crazy smart.  I got Kaptain from some people who dog had just had pups, but they all got sick and the people couldn't afford to take care of them. So I took him home at 5 weeks, got him healthy and he's been my man every since.

3  Macro Challenge Entry-Kaptain Fantastic in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by nymphetaminechika on: May 06, 2008 04:54:52 PM
This is one of my favorite pics of my doggie, Kaptain.  I have a million close-ups of his face, but I love how the grass and his eyes look against his fur.  Not edited in any way other than resizing!

4  Papasan Chair Cushion in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by nymphetaminechika on: May 01, 2008 04:39:04 PM
I got this chair from my mil, and I've wanted one since I was a kid (i know I'm still one, but lol).  The only problem, it didn't have a cushion.  Like that would stop me.  So this is what I started with

I didn't have a big enough piece of fabric to make it all the same color, so the top is purple and the bottom is bright blue and heart print fabric from my scrap bin.  I'm not done with it, still have to sew through it and make a slipcover for it.

In Use, my doggies love it!

Just wanted to add a funny story with it.  My other dog, Kaptain, and I were sitting in it this morning, and I got up to turn up the t.v. and didn't think about his big butt being close to the edge.  Well when I got up it flipped over on him, he wasn't hurt at all, but it was funny because he had one of those what the hell looks.
This is Kaptain for size reference lol

Trust me sewing that many straight lines wasn't as fun as I thought it would be.  While I was getting everything ready I was like yeah this will be easy I can do it all in one night, but it got so repetative I was half way asleep and had to stop lol.

Here are my pics, more to come later because my camera batteries died as I was taking pics  Cry

9  Is my beanie a beanie? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by nymphetaminechika on: December 14, 2007 03:10:11 PM
I'm trying to make my first beanie.  It's a simple (supposedly lol) patter for a single crochet beanie.  I'm to where I just single crochet all around until it's the right lenght, but it's just a flat circle, not hat like at all.
Here is the pattern i'm using:
Chain 3, join with sl st
SC 6 in ring
Rnd 1: 2sc in each sc around, mark beginning of round with tail from chain cast on, 12 sts
Rnd 2: *1sc in first sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from * around
Rnd 3: *1sc in 2sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from * around
Rnd 4: *2sc in first sc, 1sc in next 3 sc; rep from * around
Rnd 5: *1sc in 4sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from * around
Rnd 6: *2sc in first sc, 1sc in next 5sc; rep from *around
Rnd 7: *1sc in 6sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from * around
Rnd 8: *2sc in first sc, 1sc in next 7sc; rep from *around
Rnd 9: *1sc in 8sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from * around
Rnd 10: *2sc in first sc, 1sc in next 9sc; rep from * around
Rnd 11: *1sc in 10sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from *around
Rnd 12: *2sc in first sc, 1sc in next 11sc; rep from * around
Rnd 13: *1sc in 12sc, 2sc in next sc; rep from * around
Round 14 until the hat is the desired length: sc in all sts around and around and around
I hope by this point you see the pattern emerging. I usually go to Rnd 13 for a mans hat, Rnd 11 for a youth or womens hat, Rnd 10 for a childs hat, Rnd 9 for a toddler hat and Rnd 8 for a baby hat.

I'm to round 11 with a few single crochets after that, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Woo batteries are charged

Bullet for My Valentine t-shirt, which is really soft and comfy

Bullet for My Valentine candleholders, I wish I was able to paint this well, the pic doesn't do it justice.

My boxes, I only took pics of one side, but they have lyrics on all the sides and sparkly purple felt inside

My photo album, I love the letters and colors, it goes well with the music video (Sophie Ellis Bextor- Me and My Imagination)
