How cool is this!!! February 28, 2008

Hostile Bunni has found a way to ‘reproduce’ his evil minions!!  I don’t know how (yet!) but i’m on to him~ and he knows it!!

Rachael made this evil minion, her name is Aimee~ and the cool thing about it?  She’s making an alphabet army of minions!!  That’s right, A-Z minions!!!

evil-by.jpg  LOVE IT!!!  Oh, sorry, i mean Hostile Bunni loves it!!!

Another cool thing~ I seem to get suckered into buying little ‘prizes’ for the girls all the time and Adrian was complaining that he never gets anything.  So when i took the girls to the library (no books for us~ i have a $100 fine!!!) i went to Michaels and found the cutest freaking wind-up robots!!!

033-5.jpg It was so cute cause he came up to the bedroom and said his name was “Adri-tron” and did a little robot dance!!  I, of course, called him “Bubbi-tron”!.

On the crochet front:  I have cramps.  Again.  And i found the coolest yarn on sale for $1.50 (Bernat) and since Madaleine’s middle name is Rose (after my grandma!) i decided to crochet one for her:

016-6.jpg  The rose came from a booklet called something like ‘country rose kitchen’?, the orange flower is from Nicky Epstein’s crocheted flower book the leaves are from a japanese book~ don’t remember which one.

Loving the whole ‘flower’ thing, i decided to design another flower scarf.  This is what it looks like so far:

019-2.jpg  When i’m all the way done i’ll post the free pattern for it!!

 I’ve really been enjoying having Madaleine crocheting with me on the couch at night, and she made me a present~ it’s two different chains made into a bow!!

008-12.jpg  Awwww!!

I’ve been having her just practice the chain and tonight we’re gonna move on to turning and the first row.

More cool stuff from the internet:

Once again, don’t remember if i posted this one before or not, but it’s a cute amigurumi robot!!

This one is a kitchen scrubbie thing, and even though i’m not into kitchen stuff it looks like it could be a beautiful flower of some sort!!

Do you love japanese patterns?  Do you find yourself not only with the inability to read japanese but find the symbol charts impossible and confusing?!  Well, here is a site that just may clear up some of your issues!:
