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

Well, sometime ago,
in a search for something to do while recovering from
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???
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.

Time for a new post!!!
SO... I'm on this fabulous little networking site
and I'm told about something called 'a tribe'.
It's a list of 5 sites that I cannot go without reading everyday. Well, Heck! I have to pare it down to 5?? Not so easy to do unless maybe I have a tribe of each of the different subjects I like? Ok, so since this is an Amigurumi site, I'll share with you my 5 favorite crochet/Ami sites.
(and maybe I'll throw in a few of my other faves at the end as well ;o)
My Tribe of Favorite Amigurumi Websites
- The Art of Crochet by Theresa-http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2008/04/blog-post_16.html My A-number one favorite site. This gal- with her videos and tutorials- totally taught me how to crochet! She even has tutorials for the left-handed crocheter!
- Mygurumi-http://mygurumi.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-amigurumi-hair.html This designer is a Biologist from Germany! She's posted some great tutorials for when you want to improve your skillset!
- Planet June-http://www.planetjune.com/blog/free-crochet-patterns/mop-top-mascots/ You will love these cute little MopTop Mascots. Take a look around her blog and see some of the other patterns she has for sale. There's some incredible stuff on this site!

I look forward to getting to know her better as I begin to send donations her way.
Well, before we could even get started...
A certain big news story took center stage...
Living here in Southern California, the word 'Earthquake' kinda makes your stomach hurt.
But I can't go to Haiti- and even if I could, I'd probably be more hinderance than help...
But I do have a blog. And I have followers!
"YEAY, YOU! "
So if each of my followers took that button and placed it on their blog, then somebody somewhere down the line is bound to donate some money, right? Well, how about we go one better?
Order a Tygrlilies Doll for $50 and help support
Haiti Disaster Relief
(Of course, you could also contact these organizations directly
and 100% of your donation would go to them- I won't mind ;o)
you can donate $10 to the American Red Cross by texting “Haiti” to 90999.
Give your loved ones an extra kiss tonite.
