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.

Saw this on Facebook...Brick Pond



What was used were:
  • Outdoor BBQ bricks or you could use an old fire pit as well.
  • Plastic liner or pond liner or a kit.

Home depot has one that is really nice:

Concrete Fire pit ($174.99 CAD
Home Depot has some great kits that would work and they go anywhere from $89.99 to 199.99 CAD. I think it would be best to get the kit with the pumps due to mosquitoes loving stagnate water. These are available online. The Fir pit is in store only.

Pond Kit With Solar Light - 270 Gallon $139.99 CAD

Pond Kit-84 Gallon $89.99 CAD


10' X 10' Black 45 mil EPDM Pond Liner $89.99 CAD



  • Folded the plastic over the second level of bricks.
  • Put the top layer on this holds the plastic in place.
  • Trim the edges.
  • Put a few small bricks in the pond to add height for my plants as well as giving the fish a hiding place from birds (like a little brick bridge).
  • The original poster.hasn't had issues with leaks and its made it through ice and snow:)

I hope you will give this a try, I would like to at some point. No fish though as we have cats as well as birds to contend with :)
