Hoppity Hop Your Way To This Post

I hope that you're having a 24 Carrots day :-D  Now let's hop on to today's project!  Over at Miriam's Crafting Supplies we have a challenge going on this month.  It is anything related to children.  So I decided to make a stuffed bunny.  I got the pattern from my Tilda's Friends book.  I was very excited to make this bunny because this month's challenge project is very special.  All of the designers for Miriam's Crafting Supplies are going to auction off our projects and donate all the money to St. Judes Children's Hospital.  So I hope that when I tell you all how to bid on the projects, you all make your way on over and lets see how much money we can put together for the hospital.




Supplies from Miriam's Crafting Supplies:

Adjustable ring base , Acrylic crystals drops, Acrylic bicone drops, Bronze Butterfly embellishment

A Visit to Sanibel and Captiva

About a week ago I purchased a dash cam and I've been using it locally.  But last Saturday my boyfriend I and went to a favorite hangout place, Sanibel and Captiva Islands.  Here's an edited dash cam video of the islands.  I thought that it might be nice for those of you who have never been there.  Enjoy!

Awesome Haul!

A few days ago I found out that one of our local Pearls Paint Art Shop store is closing down.  Its a bittersweet moment for me.  I hate to see any art and crafts store closing down.  Especially one that has been around for many years.  I was told that they were having a grab bag type of sale.  Whatever you could fit in a bag, and each bag was just $10.00  You know that makes any artist/crafter's heart go pitter-patter.  My bf and I were going over on Saturday, but I woke up under the weather *** add sad face here :-( ***  But my bf went over by himself anyway.  My jaw dropped when I saw the bag.  It was huge!  Take a look at the photo below.  He got me all of this for just $10.00!!!  I did share some of it with him and some is going to to my bff.  But wowzers!  There are all kinds of paints and inks there.  I think that there are 2 or 3 hundred dollars worth of stuff!!!  (nosy dog not included...lol)

Tilda's Friends - Cute Froggy

My dad collects cute frogs, mostly figurines.  A few days I received my Tilda's Friends book and I decided to surprise him with a stuffed frog from the book.  It was incredibly easy to make.  I hand sewed everything.  The I added the stuffing and some uncooked rice (for stability when it sits down).  My favorite part is the dungarees.  They're so cute!  The doll is supposed to have tiny dots for the eyes, but I prefer the googly eyes for a frog.

Knitted Slouch Hat

Good morning poodles!  I have been on a knitting spree lately!  I want to make myself a cardigan for the winter.  But it takes a long time to do (at least for me...lol)  So at times I stop and make something else.  This time it was a hat.  A slouch hat, to be precise.  I used some pretty, homespun yarn and a couple of looms.  I also doubled up the yarn, thinking that it was a little too thin to use only one strand.  Well, it turned it into a VERY warm and toasty hat...lol  Not sure how often I'll be able to use it because I live in Miami.  But I don't care, I'll use it even if its just once a year hahaha.  I used several different stitches for this project.  Of course, the basic Knit and Purl stitches,  plus a half knit, the figure 8 and a 4 step stitch.  Now its back to the cardigan.
