I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Barcelona, Bye November, Yarn Porn, WIP



Given this is not the best picture in the world, I hope that the ones I sent PostCards to from Barcelona, got them, I got mine a day ago. I always send one to myself , just to know the time that people will be getting their postcards is close. Later on next week I will be put together a little Vacation story, of more than one posts of the fun trip we had in Barcelona!

The dollar was so bad, so we only bought the necessary stuff lol! Really we did not spend money on unnecessary souvenirs, I got some malabrigo yarn and some alpaca yarn from this BLOG HERE , I met the owner , Jennifer and she is a fantastic lady with her little girl , which Michael Babysitted for a while lol!,and her husband, Persones llanes, on pla├ža de la llana 7, Barcelona, 08003, because it was a great price and I needed some yarn, Chocolates, Calendars, and a Barcelona DVD that we may watch this weekend. I really enjoyed taking my daily siesta from 2 to 4 everyday! What a concept!

Well November 2007 went out with a bang, laughter, tears and more laughter. I was saddened by the loss of my pet friend. I want to personally thank all of you , for your compassionate thoughts and empathic notes & feelings. It was felt across the ethers. You always think that you are prepared for death, yet when it comes is a different story. In all honesty I did not believe I would get so emotional, yet I was and I am. Things will eventually even out and the feelings of pain and sadness will be replaced with joy and remembrance. In a lots of way Buster Brown had a great Life, he was rescued from a shelter 15 years ago. I will tell you he had a great Life.





This is my altar of remembrance. His tags, and some empathy postcards, his vet reminders Note, a Black Lab that I am painting Brown to put in our tree. Some times Buster will be looking out of one of the Bedroom windows at some cats that liked to lay on the fence. We called it Kitty TV. He was so intense in his stare! It was very cute. I never thought that I would miss that Buster Brown so much, but he is with me for ever more. Until we meet again, thanks for being a part of our lives.

My postcard arrived today also. Glad you had a great time, even though you couldn't buy much.

It's funny how pets touch our hearts, especially for those of us who don't have children. In some ways they become our children, we transfer our parental instincts to them. And they give us so much unconditional love and companionship and are always so happy to see us, even if we've only been gone 5 minutes. The alter of rememberance is a fantastic idea.
