Mario Brothers Take 2

So I looked at my blog post and realized I missed a round of black. I unraveled all the blue and then added the round of black. Looks better, so here we go:
I'll post more pictures as I make it.

Working on a Crochet Mario Brothers Star Blankie

For one of my son's friend, who may Some Day fall in love and Some Day get married, and Some Day even have a baby. He really likes Mario Brothers, so a blankie seems like a good idea for when I'm wanting to do mindless crochet. I'm using Knit Picks Brava™Sport yarn. I sure hope Son's Friend likes it. I am wondering if he might think I'm going to play Matchmaker or something, haha! angel


This is the guideline I'm using, because I'm not using the star blanket pattern she's using. It's just a guide: http://www.agamerswife.com/2009/06/super-mario-bros-star-blanket.html

I'm just using brighter colors I saw on another site: http://knottyknotty.blogspot.com/2013/06/more-than-stars-in-sky.html

Have a good evening.

Beyond the Mask: A Movie

Just a movie I want to see...

Finished Last Heritage Crochet Blankie

Only have to wash it. Now each of my children has one thread dress, a pair of baby booties, one hat, one unstuffed cloth bear, one star blankie.

He Set Out to Buy a Vacuum...

He came home with a new TV stand. 

And a TV, large TV. 

And spent half the night putting everything together, and removing the old stuff. I had to place my delicate sea shells in the dining room hutch. Nothing broke.

He also came home with the Back to the Future triology, "to break in the new TV" and because, "it's the year 2015!!!"

And yes, Eddie bought a vacuum cleaner. A weird vacuum cleaner that travels on its own about the house, vacuuming by itself. Well well well...

thinking

We're now watching the Super Bowl. I like watching the commercials and Eddie makes his living mostly from recording audio for commercials. But our local NBC is transmitting local commercials instead of the Super Bowl ones. Boring. Botheration.

Fearless Boss sent a list of 13 patients and needs their prelims. Well, I can't say 'no' or else I'll be looking for another client very very soon. At least Alex came over and fixed the screen settings on the new TV, which Eddie said he needed to watch the Super Bowl.

He looked so angelic I pretended that I believed his pretending. And then he pretended that my pretending wasn't because he was pretending, so I pretended to believe that, too.

It's That Time of Year Again

...when I take out my slipper socks because the temperature has dipped down enough for them. What temp? Yahoo says it's 78ºF here in my town, and I believe it. I've got my socks, long jeans, short sleeves, but with a crocheted shawl over my shoulders, because it's chilly enough for it. And here are the socks!

If you're into celebrating the new year, then Happy 2015!
Goodnight!

What happened to The Bill of Rights? (An American Minute)

American Minute with Bill Federer
What happened to The Bill of Rights? -
"...the creature, Frankenstein-like, is determined to destroy the creators."- Pres. Eisenhower

"The National Government was itself the creature of the States...

Yet today it is often made to appear that the creature, Frankenstein-like, is determined to destroy the creators."

-President Dwight Eisenhower, Governors' Conference, June 24, 1957



The original thirteen States were afraid that the new Federal Government they just created might become too powerful, as King George's government had been.



Mercy Otis Warren wrote in Observations on the new Constitution, and on the Federal and State Conventions, 1788:

"The origin of all power is in the people, and they have an incontestable right to check the creatures of their own creation."

Crochet Sighting?

Eddie was watching Men in Black 3. I don't watch creepy movies, but there's a crochet radar in my brain that picked this up.
It's crochet, isn't it?
