the wrist is still bothering me.

s t i f f n e s s.

I've been trying to pick the hooks back up-
mostly cuz i just can't stand being idle.
So many cute things to make out there!

little by little- just a few minutes at a time
(it's maddening really)
Here are a few things I managed to slip under the
Carpal Tunnel Radar

Sharky Bite Yoo!

Umm, Ruby?
Do you mind wearing a sideways zebra hat?

My niece Hannah saw some cupcake hats at Disneyland...

Thanks to Teresa Richardson at The Art of Crochet for the Free pattern!

Here we are kids-

the wait is over!

The fabulous Stacey Trock of Fresh Stitches has gifted us with a copy of her new book,

And what a darling book it is, too!

Bears and Bunnies,

Pigs and Pickups.

I loved the variety of projects in this book.
Stuffed animals, blankets, hats and even bibs!

I also enjoyed the themes she put together so you could give, say, a pair or a trio of gifts to the same child for an extra special heirloom gift.

An "Adorable Annie" stuffed birdie would go great with the Hoodie Bird Blanket, don't you think?

Or how about the Bunny Rabbit/Polar Penguin/Kitty Cat Hat ensemble?

All patterns came complete with full color photos and stitch illustrations.

I've purchased patterns from Stacey before (Hello, Jackie!) and she always does such a good job of explaining her patterns. She will also warn you if a tricky part is coming up and what to watch out for.

Are you chomping at the bit yet? Wanna know how you can get one of these fabulous books for your very own?

Just visit Stacey Trock's and come back here to tell us which of her amigurumi creations was your favorite!(Yes, you may enter again if you post this contest on your own blog, and Yes, you may enter again if you Tweet about this contest!)

The Grand Prize Winner will be chosen at random to recieve a free *SIGNED* copy of Cuddly Crochet!
Or, if you just can't wait, look for

Previously, on


Are you a "Lostie"?

Do you recognize this guy?

That's right! It's 'Hugo Reyes'



Well, sometime ago,

in a search for something to do while recovering from

Carpal Tunnel

I joined a book reviewers club.

This book club was the esteemed and reputable Thomas Nelson Book Review Bloggers.

Sounds rather, posh doesn't it?

(In the meantime they've changed the name to 'BookSNEEZE'


And if you had a blog,

a desire to recieve free books

and the ability to opine on said free books,

well then, you were invited to sign up.

So, I did.


And here's my first selection...

It's called "The Gospel According to LOST" by Chris Seay.

I was so excited! I love the Gospel, I love the TV show LOST, I love free stuff and I love books! How fantastic is this???

Not Very.

I wish I could say I enjoyed it.

I did not.

I am very glad I did not pay for this book. I'm not really sure what I was expecting. Well, yeah, I am. I was expecting to see how the TV show illustrates with all it's plots and subplots, how God works in our lives. I found Mr Seay's style of writing very convoluted and his points at times stretched or forced.

Somewhere along the way...can I say it? His message got LOST.
