tasha likes hats February 16, 2010

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns,kittens — gnathalie2 @ 6:16 am

Tasha loves when i make her hats, which is just fine with me cause i love making them!! 

I may have posted this already, but this is called the convertible hat (http://aprildraven.blogspot.com/2009/08/convertible-hat.html)

  both tasha and madaleine have been taking turns wearing it

next up is the swirls cap (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/swirls-cap)

  this one fits madaleine better, but the color is more suited for tasha.  they both look great in it though!

Boomer started being in heat this week and the boy cats that haven’t been fixed yet have been uber-spraying up the house.  They’ve been exiled to the porch and garage.  So what does boomer do?  She sticks her head out of my bedroom window and meows, and there are some boy cats outside that i’ve never seen before!!  Too bad for them!

Now that the house has been relatively boy cat free this week, Rosie is loving all the attention!!  Here she is happy to have her spot back on our bed:

And what’s even better than getting her spot back?  Adrian!!!!!  By far her favorite person in this house!! 

She follows him around everywhere, she even starts wagging her tail when she hears the schoolbus coming in the afternoon!  Here he is coming out of the bathroom:

Adrian wanted me to make a toy for her so i made a snake (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3294051#msg3294051)

she loved playing with the snake until she got side tracked by her all-time favorite toy ever……PIPE CLEANERS!!!!!

  (she’s waiting for me to give her back her pipe cleaner!)

Every morning i hear meowing in my room and everytime i look down there she is walking around with a pipe cleaner in her mouth and meowing at any cat who dares come near her!!

Oh, and how did i find out that Boomer was in heat?  I saw her run upstairs and a second later 5 of the boys were chasing her.  It took a bit but i hunted down all the boys and escorted them to the front porch.  I’m thinking “whew!” until i see Boomer rolling around like crazy in the living room.  I search the house again and i find this guy:

  I guess it’s not all bad, he is by far the friendliest, sweetest cat ever!   After all the trouble i’ve gone through this week keeping the cats out, i better not see a bunch of baby tobys or baby twinkles!!!

Later!

overdue post February 12, 2010

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns — gnathalie2 @ 9:58 am

i have been meaning to do another ‘stuff people make with my patterns’ post and then my computer died!!  all i know is that i was looking through my documents on my computer and i was running a program that converts videos to burn onto dvds when all of a sudden the screen freezes and then goes to ‘the blue screen of death’ i.e. blue stop screen.  i shut it down and restarted, and when it went to the ‘start windows normally’ option i clicked it but it looped back to the blue screen!  i finallly got into safe mode, i followed the directions on the windows help thing and went ahead and uninstalled all the programs i had, i even uninstalled the most recent updates and the updates that others had problems with but nothing worked.  I’m not electronically inclined so i did’nt know exactly what to google for but when i started the computer and hit ‘start windows normally’ it would’nt go to the starting welcome screen.  i realized that rebooting was my only option cause my phone wouldnt work (magic jack) and i had no money.  guess what happened when i did the whole reboot thing?!  it did’nt work cause windows could’nt start properly!! 

At this point i resigned to my fate, shut down the stupid computer, dragged the girl’s tv into my room and watched a CSI Miami marathon with Madaleine.  When i woke up the next morning i decided to try one more time and omg it actually worked!  I already hated losing all the pics i had’nt been able to burn onto cds, but the worst is losing the video of Madaleine’s first band concert (she plays the violin).  Sucks for me, right?!!

So, moving on i am very pleased show off this super-duper mushroom house crocheted by Laurie:

  Awesome-ly cool and it totally made my day!!!
