More Pointy Kitties

I made another pointy kitty for a friend's birthday, (pictures coming soon!) and am making two more for little girl and her new sister. :) The pointy kitties are the first thing I've sewn in years, but seeing the way all the pieces came together and everything made me think maybe I could make a pattern myself. :) We'll see how that goes, though. :P

Pointy Kitties :)

Yesterday I made a Pointy Kitty for my younger sister, and she absolutely loved it. I'm planning on making five more for various people. :)

Salsa :)

This past weekend I tried out a new recipe for a homemade salsa. (A first for me!) It turned out pretty well, except for the fact that the store didn't have any cilantro, and the recipe said we could use Parsley, and I can't stand the taste of fresh Parsley. Lol. I should've put in less than the recipe called for, or none at all, but now I know for next time. :) And it was quite delightful looking before it was stirred--very colorful. :D

Back Home

The family on a trip this weekend. We packed made up lists, packed up the cars, and headed out on Thursday.
We all had a fantastic time and plan to go again next year. We used to go every year, but stopped the year that the creek flooded in the middle of the night. :) It's always been a lot of work, but this year went very well, and all the fun we had counter-balanced it. We made s'mores, we played games, and, of course, I took lots of pictures. I planned on reading more, and I forgot the tripod, but no one got injured, no skunks wandered into camp, and the weather stayed tolerably cool. :] It was probably the best camping trip we've had.

Blog Name

I went with Klazane. :)
It seems a strange name, but when my sister was about two she always played with her hands, pretending they were people, and she named them. (Hence the banner.) Your right hand would be -your name-hand, and your left would be random. She decided to name my hands one night after we had calzones (sp?) for dinner, and my left hand was named after her mispronunciation of that meal. :)

Butterflies and Roses, How Quaint!

Well, actually, they're begonias, but...:)

I need a name for this blog, but I must do things in order and first come to the understanding of what I'm going to use it for. Is it to post the crafts I've been making, the things I've been crocheting? Is it for my photos? Is it to post random literary items?

Well, I'm sure I'll figure it out soon. :)
