the things that I do when I am not thinking of you

let’s look at some photos, shall we…

I made a fort in the living room last week. Maddie wanted to make sure everything was okay! Please note the absolute adoration in her eyes. She adores me despite the gigantic zit on my chin.

One good face snuffle to make sure I am okay and then…

She goes on guard duty!

hee hee hee piggotail!

I kept trying and trying to find a way to dye my roving in this splotchy manner without having to lay it out and squirt the dye on it. I wanted a quick and easy way in the crock pot. Most of my attempts made solid color roving. Quite by accident I got this when I pulled the roving out of the crock pot this morning. Happy.

Yellow roving and green roving to be spun up and then plyed with white for my ‘Creamsicle’ collection (ha ha ha I decided to have a ‘collection’. awesome)

This is the first Creamsicle batch done up in orange

lots of Creamsicle!

This is a blue and purple yarn I call HippoMoon

More HippoMoon

Noodly purple stuff that needs to be soaked and hung up. Still unsure about what I will do with it.

It’s like chest hair for Grimace!

oh my god! I love my moon boots!

How could you not??

Even Maddie loves my Moon Boots!!!

Today, Maddie turns 8 years old. You wouldn’t know she was 8 when you hung out with her. She is bright and active and definitely outliving most shar pei expectations! Happy Birthday, Maddie! Eight years old is BIG GIRL TIMES!
