Awe...how cute!




Dear daughter loaned me her favorite bear to pose with my transfiguration homework...I made a mini pumpkin! Now only did she allow her bear to be seen with this piece of fiber finery, she also told some of her friends about this pumpkin adventure. She really does love me!

I wish hunting season was BEFORE teachers had to drive across Montana...at least then the deer would be scared away from the roads!











Evidence between the rim and the tire...yep, it was a deer.

Mina Harker's Scarf...my version!

This month, Defense Against the Dark Arts had us create something which was inspired by a historical person or an undead...so I picked Mina Harker from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I loved her long scarf, but the tone of red I had was a bit off...still, it looks similar to the red of her bite...and therefore works for me! The scarf is 2 skeins of baby alpaca...so soft!

"Year 2009 Leo Overview

In 2009, you find yourself connecting with people effortlessly as your warm-hearted actions are acknowledged and radiated back to you in a way you've never experienced before. The confident joy and happiness you freely give to others gives you the innate ability to be productive. For you, kind actions are the way to transformation and success.

This is a perfect time for proud Leo, because you have the desire, drive and power to help society. You realize there's work to do, and you'll give a helping hand wherever you can. You are ready to align yourself with a higher level of awareness, and exhibit a regenerative attitude is about reaping the harvest by submitting to the larger purpose. What you are able to give to others directly reflects the transformation happening within you.

Your heart is in the right place, and you are likely to accomplish all that you set out to do this year. You're developing excellent skills in your own personal transformation process, and you are ready to make the conscious decision to be the best you can be. You feel secure, and the beauty of who you are shines through easily and effortlessly." Yahoo year horoscope...

I made a mini shawlette with some gorgeous hand spun yarn...which may not be of colors associated with most Leos, but are tones which I have made my own and will remind me of the beautiful bodies of water I enjoy looking at...but this Lion just doesn't enjoy swimming!





Quidditch Challenge



Today, I will turn this monster skein of light blocking black yarn into sleep eye masks...I have the needed supplies to keep me in one place for quite a while!







Done! The smallest took 34 yards, so with the 6, that is over 204 yards of sleep masks to send to the Trauma unit of Harborview Medical Center!
