So to top of the pain of loosing my darling cat, I then got struck down with a cold. Fortunately it has only lasted a couple of days and I'm well on the road to recovery. I think it was all due to that massive amount of blubbering I did.
Still talking about my cat, brings tears to my eyes. I try very hard to put it to the back of my mind and focus on other things. Then smack it hits me whilst making dinner or some such normal task.

Anyhoo I thought I'd post some of the items I've finished recently. Unfortunately i don't have pics of it all, as my batteries and I are still not talking. I have sent away for some new ones though.

This is a wine bottle cosy that I sent as part of an OWS rnd 37 swap. I love it. It's the first real piece of freestyle crochet I've done.




Here's a hat I just finished for my DS.



I also made another hat and some gloves for samsara in the OWS rnd37



Hmm not my nails. Pretty Nails Samsara!!

Samsara also claimed me in the OWS rnd37 for crochet stitch markers and a wisty surprise.
These are the markers. So very cool and so my taste. I've been using them too. :o)



My wisty surprise was just as fantastic. Lookie a dragon necklace.



it's been around my neck since I got it.

Anyway I have a swap on ravelry to finish, I've just volunteered to make a handbag in the latest OWS. Gee must be mad. They want one with a mushroom theme and I've got a quilting design in one of my books that will be perfect. Hey I like to stretch myself when swapping (argghhh).

Oh yes and I'm still reading up a storm. I jumped on the Twilight bandwagon and just loved the book. So I bought the first 3 with my amazon tokens.
Started reading Christine Feehan's carpathian Novels. The first one being Dark Prince me likey and if you like that you'll also like J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series starting with Dark Lover and Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. Do you notice a trend? Ok I don't just read vampire books. I do have major run ins with fantasy, murder/mystery and Bodice rippers (tee hee). Loving Naomi Novik Temeraire series. Not an ounce of bodice ripping in there.
