First I would like to start this blog by saying hello to everyone who reads it. "hello!"! I have been gone for a while and I am sorry! I have been busy which is unusual as I am still not working but hey, at least I am not bored!

Today was a beautiful day in Southern Ontario or as I like to call it the old S.O. It was warm and sunny, almost 30 degrees Celsius! So today i ventured out to visit some friends. I wore my Capri pants and a white t-shirt and the cutest shoes ever! they are little and plaid in orange, brown and blue...sounds horrible but they are super cute. Anyway, I love these shoes but I have a dilemma. How do I put this....swamp foot? trench foot? factory foot? Man they are so cute but do they ever make my feet stink! Anybody got any good ideas to get the swamp out of your favorite shoes? I febreezed the snot out of them today but to no avail! I wonder if i could get away with putting them in the washer? Hmmm.

Well, let's move on to things that smell and look a lot better than my feet shall we?

My friend over at Bad Kitty Blog is having a contest! She is quite the crafty person you see and she is doing a yarn junkies dream give-away! Check out her awesome blog to enter! You will find her in my list of blogs that I am addicted to. There is all kinds of crocheting bling in her prize and it's going to be fabulous! I envy the lucky duck that wins this prize! I will also be hosting a give-away coming soon...stay tuned for the exciting details!

Now on to what has kept me so busy...
This is what has kept me so busy! This fantastic baby blanket pattern can be found at , the little jackets are a pattern of my own. If you would like the pattern let me know and I will post it in a blog! This pattern was so much fun to do and so fast...just double crochets with the odd special stitch thrown in! It is listed as intermediate but I think it should be easy...just one big round!


  1. OMFG! The blanket little sweaters are gorgeous! I think I will make a star blanket for each of my nieces. I would love to have the sweater pattern if I can make it larger for the girls.
    Okay, is this one of those canvas shoes? I am fond of wearing those little canvas shoes in summer, but they do get yucky. You can wash them or hand wash/soak them, Use about half a cup of baking soda in the water and them rinse them in a vinegar rinse then a water rinse. That should do it. :-) if not, stick them in a sink and throw a ton of baking soda in them then douse with a crapload of vonegar and let them fizz, then rinse.

  2. oh hurray! no more stinky feet! I will post the pattern for the little jackets later today...have some running around to do! Thanks Cher...i will try out the baking soda thing on my shoes!

  3. oh i just checked out the link i put in my blog (my first link ever! am so proud of me) anyway, the link takes you to the blog but not the exact page. Scroll down her page a little and on the right you will see a link for Chromium star blanket...have fun ladies!

  4. You have been busy! The blanket and jackets are adorable!
    I wish I knew how to get stinkiness out of shoes, but I don't. Good luck. Have you tried odor eaters?
