I've been making mugs

I am making mugs - 200 of them. I take a photo of each one and put it on Tumblr.

Where did it go?

Somehow, my blog disappeared and the address had been taken over by a domain for sale site. Hmmmm.

This was the bad actor site neocounter.neoworx-blog-tools dot net

Lesson learned: if you don't visit your blog and post something once in a while, things can go south!

Some of the companies that made the counters and other scripts I was using on my page went out of business, and they were sending out overriding notices and redirecting from my page. After I removed them from the page framework, my blog looked normal again.

Put a bird on it!

You can check in on a female bluebird sitting on five eggs with this nestcam in Maine, NY. The video feed is live, in color, and has sound. Look for the NestCam link on the left side of the homepage...

Cake Pop Bouquet

I was so happy with the way these cake pops turned out. I made three different types of cake and dipped them into different coatings. Some got peppermint chips, some got nuts, some got edible foil stars, and some just got swirly color.

I think they look great!

New Baby = Hat and Booties


I made these tiny little things for my cousin's new baby. I liked this yarn quite a bit, and was happy to make baby things using colors that weren't pastels or primary. The hat pattern is Lyric, but I changed it a little bit because I ran out of time to make it taller.

The little boots are Magic Slippers, and were very easy to make. I was happy there was no seaming at all. The yarn is Patons Stretch Socks in the Mineral color. I also changed the Magic Slipper pattern a bit because I was worried the baby would kick them off. These are a cross between socks and slippers. I hope they stay on!
