Anyway, some stuff's been going on around here. I'm not even sure where to start. Well, how about the fact that the sun came out finally. It's been raining a ton... I'm pretty sure it's been 40 days and 40 nights plus a few afternoons. I'm thinking Noah forgot to invite me into the ark. That must mean I need another beagle puppy - a girl to go with my boy. Too bad my husband wouldn't buy that story. Anyway, my fibro-riddled body feels a little better this morning and some of my lilies have opened up!
Speaking of Buddy the Beagle Baby, he has been learning some tricks! He learned "sit" really fast but the others not so much. He just finally learned "lay down" and "leave it." He also came to me right away when I said "come." The best thing though is that I just got a potty training bell. I have only had it about a day and a half and this morning he rang the bell. It was kind of funny because it is so new I hesitated a minute thinking "what the heck is that noise?" lol Well, only a few seconds and then I somehow FLEW over there and let him out. Not only did he go pee but he also went poop which he usually prefers to deposit in my entryway whenever it is raining and/or wet out. I was so SO happy! Oh, and Buddy also has a new confinement space. He does not like our wall (Mexico did not pay for it btw)
Oh, and I made a tumblr account. I used to have one but never really used it much. I tried to sign in but it said I didn't have an account. Boo. Oh well, I started over. My new account name is DJCstitches (which I'm pretty sure is what my old one was) and I have no friends. That is very sad so please be my friend if you tumble with tumblr.
I want to say THANK YOU! to all the people that gave me advice for fixing the snag in my Frilly
Update: You won't believe this but I can't find my second ball of that dark purple Caron Simply Soft Party ANYWHERE. I got half way around the hemline and ran out. I have turned the living room upside-down and now I'v sent out a text-plea to my hubby to grab a ball for me on his way home.
Second Update: I got it! Hubby made a special trip by Joanns to get it for me and bring it home BEFORE he went to play golf. Isn't he the best?
I finally got a new set of size 9 needle tips for my Boye Needlemaster knitting needle set. I think it was back in January when I broke mine. I was knitting and got up for some reason and laid my project down on the couch (which will never happen again). When I sat down I folded my leg underneath me like I always do and my knee pressed down right on one of the needles and snapped the threaded part in the cable. I've actually done that once before and quickly was able to get a replacement cable and needle tips. This time however I could only get the cable. The other replacement parts were no longer on amazon.com and the whole Needlemaster replacement parts section on their website was gone. I was freaking out thinking they were discontinuing the set all together. I have been watching for them on ebay and etsy ever since. I finally found a store on ebay that had them plus they have other brands, sock boards, crochet hooks, pattern books and some cross stitch kits etc. The seller is super nice too because I accidentally ordered some connectors for the knit picks needles instead of the Boye and they were kind enough to fix that for me. I have some OCD issues so it has been driving me insane that I didn't have a complete set. It made me not want to knit at all and when I did finally make a washcloth I used straights instead. It is so nice to see my set complete again! (I do realize there is a size 2 missing but it is actually attached to a project with a stop on the other end of the cable).
Okay, so I know I had more things that I intended to add here but I forgot what they were. I guess I will save them for later since this is long enough. I hope everyone had a very productive and fun crafting week.
