Infant IU Blanket

So, I think I've posted about this cute little thing, but I'm not sure.  I've been commissioned to work up an infant blanket using the Indiana University logo (pictured above).  I used the photo above to design my own pattern.

Don't forget to like me on Facebook!

I finally got the page all straightened out, and I tend to post there instead of on here (I don't know why, I need to fix that).
There you can follow my progress on certain pieces and find some other really awesome crafty people and wonderful photographers as well!

I hope to see you there!

Today is my beautiful niece's first birthday party (she actually turns one on Tuesday), so I'm not going to be on either site much.  Enjoy the pictures and posts!  Don't forget to comment!

Just pushing an awesome anime...

More than a few years ago, I was priveledged to be introduced to the anime NANA (link to wikipedia page about the manga) .   I LOVE NANA.  Great story, and the music in the anime is AMAZING!!!!
This is the first time I've ever done this, but I'm going to attempt to imbed some videos into this post...

FREE PATTERN!!!! Large Granny Square Shawl

Occasionally I will be posting patterns on here or step-by-step blogs for jewelry making.  Here's post numero uno!

Almost healthy...

Today is the third consecutive day that I have NOT had a fever.  My cough is still horrid and my throat hurts like hell, but I'm getting a lot of this crap out of my lungs!  I might be able to get back to work tomorrow...

While I've been sick, I have been catching up on my webcomics.   I feel the need to share the awesomeness with you.

February 5th

Still sick. ugh.

BUT, just wanted to say:

Happy Birthday Memaw!

Also, you should TOTALLY check out Kayla K's Thrifty Ways .  She has an AWESOME blog with great money saving tips that help you continue crafting aaaaaaaaaaaaand great every day stuff too!  I keep forgetting to read (even though I have her "favorited" AND on my toolbar) especially with how sick we've all been.  There's also some wonderful help with math that I plan on pushing my younger siblings toward.  Well, maybe not my brothers and my sister is out of school, but my "adoptive" sister (aka brother's ex-girlfriend) would totally understand and get help!

I was just logging on to let y'all know that I'm sick and won't be touching anything for a few days (or up to a week).  Please forgive me, but I don't want to pass this crap on to you.  Toddler has acute bronchitis and an ear infection, I've got a fever above 102 if I don't have tylenol in my system and I can't breathe if I don't have robitussin in me--I mean, LITERALLY, I was gasping for breath each time I tried.

This isn't fun :(

Oh!  and I want to say "Happy Birthday" to my youngest little brother!
