OK, here's another "Cute or Crap" question. I give you the latest.....

i really like the cow and the horsey, is that a bowl of fruit above them? wink.gif
excellent work! how long did it take to make that?

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

If you think that's a cow, horsey and bowl of fruit then obviously not long enough. Damn. laugh.gif
Thursday: This morning, I say to my wife and my girls, the waffles we face are real. They will not go away. Cornmeal waffles, buckwheat waffles, pumpkin waffles, chicken'n'waffles. The waffles we face are serious and manifold.

I have been remembering this man with some real vigor over the past couple of days. He was a miserable stinker, although now that he has gone on to his reward I can't say what I really thought of him. But if I'm any judge of these things, I'll bet he's hotter than Squeat Mungry. DebVanD

That is gorgeous! And congratulations on having it held up so well; it looks as though it could be brand new!

I'll add what the girls on Ravelry have seen -- a Victorian-styled sweater I just finished yesterday:

I'm enjoying the look of a new Louisa Harding, "Cardigans."



Some very appealing patterns include the Contarini



The Fritallary



and the Cecile



Mmmaybe I don't like the Cecile that much. Maybe I just like her makeup. But the book is appealing.
