The waiting game.....


Some big news and some little news all in one post here. Will start w/ the big news. ........

I'm an Auntie for the 8th time! My newest nephew was born in Japan on Saturday. I haven't seen pictures yet, but Mom assures me he perfect in every way. She is already devising ways to kidnap him back to the Just kidding there, but I'm sure the little fellow knows that his Glammy loves him very much! And yep, I said Glammy. Mom has decided she is not Granny, she is Glammy and does it ever fit her to a T!

Next in line is the waiting game I like to play prior to an ordered wheel arriving. Sometimes Louet gets a little backed up and it takes wheels a little bit longer to get here that expected. The wheel coming is an S17 that I will be painting with cute little turtles and then re-packaging to be shipped to Russia! Yep, you heard me correct. I'll be shipping it to Russia after it is painted. How fun is that!?!

So while I have been waiting, I finished up a few little projects from here there and every where.

The Cowl is finally finished... Free Pattern coming later:)

Space Cadet Fingerless Mittens are Finished. Pattern also coming later!

And It wouldn't be a proper Lunabud Post w/ out a picture of Little Kitty who is not quite so little any more. Here he is grabbing my pajama button.

From there, he likes to try and pull my buttons off. He really is a nutty Little

If you see this face you can rest assured the Kitty is up to absolutely NO GOOD!

FIN....... Craft or Bust

Yep, I missed posting last week about the Craft or Bust challenge.

But...... I am so making up for it today!

Progress thus far: Finished one more skein of the BFL yarn for the sweater. The newest alpaca skein is ready for the dye pot. And my proudest accomplishment so far with this challenge is that I finally finished the never ending shawl!!!

I was originally knitting the shawl for myself. But, (and there almost always is a but of some kind in my posts;) Mom is on her way to Japan to be with my Brother and Sister-in-law for the birth of my newest little nephew! I sent the shawl with Mom for Jen. I hope she likes it.

Little Sugar on the side.....

We had an unfortunate series of events unfold yesterday morning. No details at this point about who, when, where or why. It was just a weird (for us) and unfortunate (not for us) day.

You're probably wondering what this post has to do with any shape or form of 'Sugar'. Well, I promise it does, because a sweet little dog, Sugar, has been camped out at my house since last night due to an unfortunate incident. I didn't know what her name was until after calling the Vet on her rabies tag this morning, but I kept telling my friend who is helping me place her in a new home that she truly is the sweetest little dog I have ever been around. I just keep thinking it's kind of funny how I kept going on about how she was the sweetest little dog w/ the sweetest little personality. Then find out her name actually is 'Sugar'.

Wish I could keep her, but Miss Piper just will not allow it. She's too old and set in her ways. Just a big ol' crotchety rug. OH, AND DON'T YOU PEEPS START SAYING YOU WANT HER..... We are pretty sure she will be going to her new home tomorrow:) Have to insert a big ol' THANK YOU here to my friend Christy with 'Friends of the Animals of Jessamine County'.

Head Shot... Believe it or not, I think this little gal is actually cuter than her pictures. Hard to believe is it not:)

Piper ate her bone and wants Sugar's bone. Hard to see in the big ol' bear carpets facial expression, but she's looking at me like what the heck Mom!?! Why are you fussing at me for? All chew toys are mine, all Just the look on her big ol' bear face what like 'why am I being fussed at? I just want the bone. I just don't get it'

The bone was taken away a short while after this picture was taken. It just caused way too much drama in the house.

Really wish I could have kept this sugary little pixie, but it just isn't going to happen. Piper is a bit overly aggressive over food, toys, water, etc. Luckily though, she will be going to her forever home maybe tomorrow. Until then, I'll enjoy her sweet little personality:)

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
