Of all the Christmas specials, I would have to say the Snow Miser was my favorite… How ’bout you?

Maybe it’s the name…

woolly bear caterpillarWoolly Bear caterpillar. I’m not sure if it’s the name or the actual caterpillar. I just find it cute. Folklore says it can predict the weather. If it has a wide copper stripe, it is supposed to be a mild winter. Narrow copper band means a more severe winter. the copper band size really just relates to the maturity of the caterpillar. This caterpillar actually hibernates.
Cute, huh? Found this handsome devil in my backyard.

It’s that time of year…

I can’t believe it’s been an entire year since I posted last. Well, if anything I am consistant. And I still suck at blogging. Anyway, here’s my latest project. It is a felted brimmed hat that I decorated with wild turkey feathers.
Felted hat with feathers

The feathers were collected from this handsome guy:

Now I just need to find a good project for my peacock feathers! On a sad note…This August 6th, I lost my beloved maltese, Angel. She had gotten very sick in a short amount of time. We miss her terribly. Here is a picture of her being her rascally self. She alway made us laugh. RIP, my love.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…another blog

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:53 pm by magandmick

OK.  So I thought I’d leap into the 21st century and start a blog.  I’m really doing this so I can add some knitting designs.  Not that I’m a designer or anything, but sometimes an idea that I have pans out.

A little bit about me:

I’m a middle-aged, married, mother of 2 (now that’s an opening statement that’ll keep you reading!).  I like ranting.  It may seem strange, but I feel “better out than in”.

Although, I’m not sure ranting helps because I need blood pressure meds.  I’ll get to what I like ranting about later…

Things that I enjoy are:

Watching my kids play their sports.

Horror movies (I would LOVE to be a horror movie make-up artist)

Skiing (it’s been on the back burner for a few years)

Softball (and keeping the books)

POGO games

Reality TV (yeah, yeah, I know…insert eye roll.)

But most of all…KNITTING!

Knitting has saved me thousands in therapy bills!  On the other hand, those thousands “saved” have been used to buy yarn.

Plus I LOVE to laugh and have a sense of humor that can best be described as “sardonically irreverant”

 

As for this, I still have a lot to figure out.  I’m hoping that it will also make me a little more computer saavy.  “Hope is eternal”…whatever.
