Hello, Everybody!....HELLO!!! O_O Is anybody still out there?! ^_^ ...I know I've been a bit of a tennis watching nut over the last couple of weeks, but I've been keeping track of some things I wanted to talk to you about as they came up...so be ready! LOL
The first thing I wanted to tell you about was hubby's new flowers!....Yes! That header photo is of one of hubby's flowers from the backyard!! :-) ...This is what one of the plants look like...
Isn't it beautiful?!
I'm not usually a person that goes for this color scheme, the pastels kinda....but I'm really loving it for some reason!...Maybe my hormones are changing my sense of 'likes' and 'dislikes' too!! LOL Ugh!...That's another story I have to tell you about one of these days! Ugh!
And hubby doesn't know what flowers are gonna pop out of this one...
It's sister plant has big leaves...
I guess we'll all find out together! :-)
One of the other things that's new around here is my men's crochet cuff link lapel pins....Whew! That's a mouth full, isn't it?! O_O
I know....it looks just like my other flowers and lapel pins, right?!...
It's really tiny....1 & 1/4 inches (3.2 cm)...and instead of having a button on back to button it into the man's lapel, it has a cuff link!...
Once it goes through the lapel buttonhole, you can turn the post sideways...
...and there you go! :-) ... Ha! I said that like it was just as easy as pie!.....And it sure wasn't!!! I had to put the button on separate, crochet another backing to cover the cuff link top, and sew it all securely in place...I'm still working on others to see what's gonna be the easiest, and least time-consuming way to make them...But this one is already in my Wuglyees shop anyway --> HERE <--.
The button was a lot of work!...I made another one with a bead in the center...
*sigh*...It was just as much work!...I'm gonna list this one later today.
I made a couple of other ones, both made slightly different....I'm gonna find the formula eventually!! ^_^
Okay....that's it for today!...Yes, I've been kinda side-tracked. Sleepless. Distracted. Once again my mind has been 'a wandering', but YAY...I'm back! :-) At least for now!....And not a tennis ball or racket anywhere!! ^_^ .....I missed you!...Have a good day, Everybody! :-)
My Mind Went A Wandering
After barely any sleep,
and dreams I find that I am pondering,
my mind is on a journey,
skipping rocks and out a wandering.
It's acting sorta senile,
like an old lady in her nightie,
barefoot on the highway,
thinking she's all high and mighty.
I'm contemplating platypus
and belly buttons too.
All this while thinking fingernails
are not that good to chew.
It's probably not a good thing
that my head's so far from home.
Especially all uncovered,
and now clearly needing a comb.
