I know it isn't Monday

But you have to strike while the iron is hot...and right now our computer seems to be feeling pretty perky so I am sharing a pic of my Mirabilia Christmas Elf Fairy WIP as of the last Monday.

Mondays are Mirabilia SAL days with Renee from STO. I have been so slow with this but I have finally wrapped my little brain around the fact that I need to ask for an OTT light for my birthday. I can barely see the linen sometimes with the horrible living room table lamp. Maybe it is just my eyes though. More on that later. Here she is, I named her Penelope and her dress is coming along nicely.

I am a middle starter so I am kinda jumping all over with this one. I am trying to mainly stick with one color and work the majority of the areas with that color and then move on to the next color. I think that the blended color is up next and I don't know how I feel about that. It will be my first time doing a blended stitch.

Tonight DH is off bowling and I am going to quilt in a little while. Really need to get this one finished so I can focus on other things!!! Like a little quilt for me! I am going to do some blog work tonight and tidy it up a little bit. I have been nosing around on the crochetville blog posting and looking at other crocheter's blogs and they are really cool!

Did I mention that I started a granny square blanket this last week? Story of my life...always starting, never finishing! I taught myself how to do a granny square this last weekend and each day my goal is to crochet 2 squares. I am using Sugar & Cream natural cotton yarn for it...should turn out really pretty. Once you get the hang of the granny square, you really can't mess it up.

Our cherry tomatoes are really starting to come in. Too bad we are moving in 2 months. I hope that whomever moves into our house enjoys tomatoes. And green peppers. They are getting bigger, but still no peppers on the plants.

The kids are alive and well. I must have gotten Bella's "baby" (a little purple and red mouse) mixed in with the load of was in the dryer today. She was thrilled to have it back and ran around the house with it in her mouth, howling and meowing like crazy. When we PCS to Saipan, I will have to make sure that it goes into her kennel with her...she is lost without it.

This is a rare moment for Lily and Bella. For those that don't know, Lily (Killer Lily) is the Brown Tabby and Bella (Isabella) is the Orange Tabby. They are usually biting and chasing after eachother.

Lady is Lady. We are thinking about taking her to the GAIN dogshow at the end of next month. She can get a little crack headed though when she is out in public. I think that she just gets too excited and doesn't know how to act.

That draws this post to an end. I have to get off my rump and go make some cookies for the girls at work. They are harassing me everyday because it has been over a week since I brought anything in. *sigh*

Keep me in your thoughts and prayers that these hellacious headaches would go away as mysteriously as they have appeared. I hate taking this medicine!

Your Christmas Elf Fairy is coming along so nicely. I've really enjoyed working on mine. I can't wait to see your next progress picture.
