This icicle picture from my phone was taken on Friday.  I'm happy to report that the icicles are no longer on the house!!  White stuff may still be on the ground, but there has been a tiny bit of progress towards Spring!

Mini Crocheted Flowers

Mini Crocheted Flowers

Slowly getting back into the swing of things after my little California trip!  It was so beautiful out there with the flowers blooming and everything so green!  And then I came back home to more snow than when I left!  Perhaps crocheting some little flowers will help Spring get here faster...

(Easter experimentations with Size 10 thread, 1.5mm hook and various Japanese patterns...)

I can't believe it's Tuesday again already!!  Time flies when you're having fun!  Speaking of flying, if the weather plays nice, I'll be on my way home today.  I can't wait to catch up with you all on your blogs and get at my email!  In the meantime, here's a few pictures I've edited with my new favorite program, Lightroom 4 (thanks Gin and Jarrod for the best gift ever!)...

I hope everyone's week is going great so far!  Here's a few pictures I took yesterday, and they are some of the first photos I've edited with Lightroom 4!  I've got a lot to learn about the program, but I think I'll have a lot of fun with it!

Spam and Eggs

Good morning dear readers.  It's another Saturday morning, and I have more spam to share if you're interested.  If not, that's fine as spam's an acquired taste.  I also wanted to let you know that I'm leaving today to go visit friends in California.  I'll be gone for a little over a week and I'm very excited!  I'm bringing my camera with me, so hopefully I'll find time for at least Photo-Tuesday!

Ok, if you have your eggs (or other breakfast food of choice), here's the spam (sans the spam links):

Mandala 2 Finished!

Mandala 2- Size 3 Thread

I finished my second mandala for the Overlay Crochet Mandala CAL!  I was a little nervous about my hook size and my color choices... but I think it all worked out perfectly!

The Land of Oz

Oz block

Here's my second block from Sany's pattern, using her diagonal color change directions!  In the corners, you join with one chain and a single crochet, and continue with the same color.  I'm not explaining it very well, so you should check out her directions.  It's pretty brilliant.

A Bright Bag Granny Square

Lacy Granny Square

I wasn't quite done with the colors from my overylay crochet mandala, so I used the left over yarn and tried out a pattern I've had on my "to make" list for awhile!  This pattern is the Lacy Granny Square by one of my blog friends, Sany of Bright Bag.  (It even has a mandala-ish feel to it!)

Spam and Eggs

Good morning everyone!  Care to join me for some spam and eggs? Maybe I've gone completely mad, but let me explain.  I don't know about you other bloggers, but I get a ridiculous amount of spam comments (which you don't get to see since I had to start moderating my comments because of them).  And I think they have reached a breaking point... The spam comment that broke the blogger's back mind?  Maybe I have a bizarre sense of humor, but after awhile these spam comments really started to crack me up!

I haven't quite figured out if the comments are randomly generated by a computer or go through some translation program, but sometimes the wording is pretty funny.  Or at least it is to me!  So I thought since I can't beat them, I'd join them, in a sense, by showcasing some of the better ones!  Maybe I've lost you already and this post is just spamming up your blog reader, or maybe you might find these spam comments a little funny like me...  So grab your beverage and breakfast of choice, and I'll provide a little spam.  (Warning, there could be some comments that may or may not be construed as offensive.  Just throwing that out there now.  Heaven forbid anyone choke on a sip of Earl Grey after coming across a genital reference.)
