I keep forgetting to mention the breed of the puppies, everyone keeps asking lol. Honey is a Shuh Tzu/Jack Russell Mix, and the father to these puppies name is Charlie, and he is a Jack Russell and Chihuahua mix.

I also crocheted these super soft and absorbant dishcloths using the same brand yarn. I thought using matching solid colors would be neat for a set. I enjoy the ribbed style of them. They are pretty simple to crochet up actually, but well worth it.
The final item I added tonight was this cool plarn dish scrubbie. Plarn is short for Plastic Yarn. Its basically where you take plastic grocery bags, and cut them up and tie them togther. Then you just knit or crochet like you would with actual yarn. This is my own personal pattern actually. I just sort of sat down and created it. The inside of the pad is stuffed with plastic bags as well to make it thick like a sponge. The cool thing about these scrubbies is that it wont mildew and collect gross bacteria like a typical kitchen sponge! You can add a little bleach and toss this bad boy in the washer as many times as you need too. You dont have to worry about it falling apart or stinking! The plarn makes it sturdy, and gritty enough to remove even the toughest of food from your dishes, and is still safe enough to use on your teflon, stainless steel and even glassware! I really enjoyed making this and plan to make tons more! If interested in any of the items above, visit http://longestyarn.etsy.com/ for purchasing information. The Dish Scrubbies are on sale! $2 for 1 or 2 for $3!
Tomorrow I plan on working on a laptop cozy, and for my husband a PSP/Ipod Cozy. So stay tuned for that! I found out today that my brother, and sister-in-law are bringing my nephew/godson Adam up for my birthday which is also Easter weekend! I'm really excited too! I miss Adam like crazy every day and living this far away is hard when it comes to him! I cant wait to see them all again! It will be their very 1st visit to WV too! I'm sure they'll love it (at least I hope so!) For now though, I think I'm headed to bed, these late nights are killing me. I wish I could get my sleep schedule corrected. bleh!

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

I woke up to a really neat surprise this morning! Honey had her puppies. She had 3, 1 girl and 2 boys. The first picture is of the little girl and the other 2 are the boys. I love their little pink noses and feet! They are too cute! We were surprised that she only had 3 because she had 5 in her last liter and she looked larger this time so we were expecting more. In a way I'm happy that she only had 3 because now I can spoil them and find really good homes for them. We are also considering keeping the little girl. This is Honey's last liter because she's 6 years old and I think 2 liter's are enough. After she's weened the pups we will be getting her spade. I'd really like to keep the girl, I've had boys and I dont think I can handle that again. In my experience male pups are super stubborn and tough to potty train. I just had to share pics of them, they are just too cute! <3

The second potholder that I made is alot larger. Its 10.5 inches square! Its huge! But sometimes (at least in my cooking experience) larger potholders are better, especially if you are baking a casserole in a large dish and need something to sit the dish on to protect your table or countertops. My husband actually found this patriotic yarn and liked it (ha!) so he purchased it and brought it home to surprise me. Its funny that he is actually bringing me yarn as a little surprise, instead of flowers, or candy... how bizarre am I hahahaha! So I made this potholder in the patriotic colored yarn he purchased me :) I am personally not a fan of the color combo but thats not to say Im not patriotic. lol. Maybe I should hush on that lol. I also added a hanging loop w/ a white decorative button.
I went on a mini shopping spree to hobby lobby this weekend, and found lots of great deals and yarn that I can not wait to start working with... hopefully I will have more to share later.
I think I need a better way of taking photo's of my items... I dont think the pics give the items justice and I dont know what I can do to change that. Its a little frustrating because in person the colors and style etc look so much better. If anyone has any suggestions for taking photos of these and other items, PLEASE share! LOL. Thanks in advance!
This weekend was the first warm and sunny weekend we have had since November! YES I SAID NOVEMBER! I was looooving it too! Tim and I barely stayed home all weekend because we wanted to soak up the sun and enjoy it as much as we could. We actually drove 2 hours to the nearest hobby lobby just to be outside haha. It was nice though! I really hope this is a sign that spring is coming and soon. This winter was pretty cold, White, and bizarre!
More to come, hope everyone is well! =)
