Ravellenic Games, Finishes 4 and 5

These two projects were pretty quick to whip up. The snowflake definitely took a bit of concentration at first, but then I was just able to go with it! I have really enjoyed the Olypmics this year. Missy Franklin and Gabby Douglas are probably two of my faves. Well, most of the women swimmers seem pretty awesome. And Lochte... well... if only he could tweet without typos. At least he is easy on the eyes -- and an amazing swimmer. Did you know he has 11 medals -- second only to Phelps (I think they are 1 and 2 in US atheletes number of medals, but don't quote me on that). REgardless, it is a stat that no one really talks about, because what is 11, compared to Phelps' 21? Anywho. What you really want to see are some photos...
Baby Ballet Slippers. Here's the important question -- are these masculine enough for a little boy to wear them? Too feminine? Tell me, please!

Snowflake Hat. Makes me want cocoa, fire, and some snowy weather! Not that we get snow here. Ever.

Remember, you can always keep track of my crochet every day progress by clicking on completed projects. What have you recently finished? Do you feel accomplished, like I do?

Ravellenic Games, Finishes 1-3

This whole Ravellenic Games thing is really encouraging me to finish up some projects. I do love a good challenge! It is definitely getting me closer to my 365 patterns goal! Here are the first three things that I finished...

Darwin Hat. It's too small for me, but that means I can give it away!

Whale. Tiny. Cute. No idea what to do with it. Maybe the cats will play with it!

Candy Cane Ornament. Pretty self explanatory. I'm sure it will look great on my tree this year!

More finished projects to share, tomorrow!

Lazy Hands

Those were the two prompts for Thursday and Fridays photo of the day. I had to get some lab work done (I'm okay!) so those were the hands. And my cat, well, he can be pretty lazy! I'm also sharing some garden updates, because we are pretty happy about how our backyard is coming along!

August Photo a Day

Last year I participated in the August Break, where I took and posted a photo each day for the month of August. I had a lot of fun with that, so I'm going to try and do it again (coinciding with my instagram photo a day). Day 1 was where I work, you can see the photo collage for that below. Day 2 was blue, and I'm using two pictures. The mug is the one I actually took today, and the slippers are from last night. Adorable!
