Raulf and Alf???

Sorry.... Had to post again... I almost forgot to show everyone one the most recent photo op at my home.... I call this one "Ralph and Alf"!

For those of you that don't know who this is... it is my husband, Jason! I thought it was a hillarious pic! They look like twins, huh? same nose... same teeth, same "burns".... SAME!

Weird Cracker moment!

Ok.... Here we go again... another 'weird Jackie moment''. I had a dream last nite That I went to the Goodwill store and I got this really cool "prize"! When I woke up... though... I couldn't remember what the "prize" was! So I got up and informed Jason, my husband, that I was going to the Goodwill store today to pick up my "prize". He looked at me like I was crazy....expecially when he found out that I had dreamed about it.. needless to say he is getting used of these "weird Jackie moments". So off I went. to collect the trophy. Check out what I found for my "prize"! It is better thatn I thought it would be! YARN!!! YAHOO!!! Here are some pics.... all this for $10.00! I really did win GRAND PRIZE!

Is This too cool or what???

Also I wanted to add a pic of the "Loop and Lace Mile a Minute" Afghan I started last nite... I really like to way it is starting to shape up!

Crochetville Swaps!

I havent' posted in a while and I really wanted to show you my wonderful packages that my swap partner have made for me.

I am going to start with the two most recent ones.... I don't know why it has taken me this long to figure out to use my blog to show off my prizes!

This purse came from Amy (tiga) . For the Autum purse swap. Isn't it gorgeous? I love it! It is made with such great colors and it is really nice and soft too!

And These wonderful scarves came from Angel (ladyinthemoon) For the winter scarf swap. They are both way awesome! And I can't wait to be able to use them.... Although it is getting a bit colder out! It has rain continuous for the last 4 days! And it looks like more tomarrow!

thought I'd share...

I was just thinking about the purse swap.... and I found these photos of the purse I designed for the spring purse swap... and thought I would share them. This purse went to Canada. I used a recycled blue jean legfor the body, "fabric" yarn for the flap, thread crocheted the flowers and the fringe, and used my spool knitter and some suede yarn.

I finished on time!!!

I am soooooooo glad that I finished my purse on time to send to my partner in Florida! This one is for the Autum purse tote swap. I always wait til the last day or so to send my swaps and yes I did again! Today was the last day to send... And it did make it in the mail today! YAHOO! Here is a photo of my "Groovy" purse I crocheted for her... I made the body of the purse with hemp and the handle, flap and fringes out of thread. My Partner said she really like the 70's retro stuff so this is my interpetation! It is a CrackerJackie's original. And I also sent her this little pansy purse for her 5 year old little girl! I sure hope they like them!

I also sent her a sluch purse that I had sewed. I will try to post a pic of it on here before to long.

Today I had a pretty good day... I may have stayed up to late crocheting and may be a bit tired so I guess it time to be off to bed! Nite Nite!
