It was cool weather just last week and today it's going to be over 100 degrees, it just came up on us so fast. I am not going to the park this year for fireworks or having a BBQ. The kids are on their own today to come up with their own food and entertainment. Steve and I are going to stay out of the heat and meet my mom for lunch at Marie Calenders.
Next weekend we will be off to Monterey and Carmel for our anniversary. I am so looking forward to it.
I started a new project Friday night, I am making a Amineko the crochet cat, it's very popular as I was doing a search on the Internet for it and wow everyone that crochets is making this cat. It's been out a few years. I am almost done, it's going to be for Kirsten's baby Rylan. I am making the cat a teal blue, but the next one I am going to make for Morgan is going to be green and tan or cream. I can't wait to show off the cute kitty!
Here is a bit about Amineko the cat.
I can't make any profit from amazon anymore because of Gov Brown in CA, but that's a topic for someone else to talk about. But here is the link to the book above. Although my husband and I are trying to plot our way out of California we hope within 5 years.
Hello My Name is Amineko follows the journey of Amineko the Crochet Cat and his crocheted friends as they eat, sleep, and have lots of fun and adventures. The book comes with complete step-by-step photography and instructions for creating an Amineko of your very own and personalizing this cute cat with different facial expressions, clothing, and even bedding. Hundreds of color photographs tell the adorable tales, and mischief, that Amineko and his friends find themselves in, with complete instructions for knitting adventures of your own.
About the Author
Born in Tokyo 1967, Nekoyama has been a life-long lover of cats. Cats and their endearing mischief have never failed to cheer her up. She created her first Amineko by accident and has never looked back. Today, she and her husband are the proud parents of many Aminekos. Nekoyama’s first book, A Day In the Life of Amineko, was published in Japan in 2005.
I am going to have to rent a truck to get everything to Kristen's baby shower I have purchased so many things off her Registry and made so many things for baby Rylan. I also bought an adorable baby swing for the baby with all the bells and whistles.
The baby swing is by Fisher Price called my Little Snugabunny Cradle and Swing.
The photo here is of the first one I did for her, I wish I had made the bag with a stiff interfacing in it, so I am making another, but it turned out okay.
Have a happy safe 4th of July!
