About Me

My photo

I am a knitter and crocheter and love to design when I get a chance. I am known as the crazy cat lady with 3 dogs. I am a mother to 3 of my own and step-mother to several. I am also a grandmother.

Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

Wow this says it all! There were 75 injured and 1 death after a severe thunderstorm made its way across Alberta. I am still waiting for word as I have friends that were attending the performance. Billy Currington was on stage, 6:00 pm, as the storm rolled through. Billy was injured, Kevin Costner was backstage however he wasn't injured. I will try to keep the blog updated with more information as it comes in. Kevin Costner's band was to be going on right after Billy Currington.

I am listening to a really cool interview with Terri Clark who is sending out condolences and heart felt wishes to those affected by the storm. She is in so much shock over what has happened. I am worried for the DJ's from CISN and CFCW who were at the Jamboree. I am especially concerned for Nick Gulka, who is a really good friend of the family.

Wow, I am just floored and it ain't over yet! We have a series of Severe Thunderstorm Watches and Warnings at this time.
