Crochet Time…Blankets

First of all, I would like to say thank you to all of you that have stuck around while I have been taking care of myself. Now on to my post!

I have been crocheting blankets for my pet charity Project Night Night.  While I have only done two more, I feel happy with my progress.  Plus, I haven’t forgotten my other endeavor of crocheting scarves for the homeless. Just a little something to help them keep warm.

I know this next bit doesn’t have anything to do with crochet, but I have done this in the past. I missed last year, but I really want to do it this year. NanoWrimo!! It will keep me really busy, but at least it will keep my mind working.  It starts on November 1st and runs the whole month. The idea is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It is very exciting and it makes you think. You can always go back and edit later and that is suggested that you do so and just get your word count.

Now, back to crochet!  Boy, I really got sidetracked. That’s what happens when you have many interests. Reading is another hobby of mine. I will leave that for another post.

Here are some pictures of the two blankets that I have completed. Once again, thank you for sticking by me. It means a lot.



It’s Almost October

Spook-fest is coming soon!!

Pull Up A Toadstool

Since we’re only a few short weeks away from October, I thought it was time to let all of you know that we will be teaming up at Sisters In The Shadows again for our annual month long spook-fest. In addition to my horrific contributions, there will be plenty of other demented tales and/or artwork contributed by  my delightfully twisted sister Julie, my lifelong friend and gleeful partner in all things weird Tabitha, and the next generation of macabre creations, the  lovely and talented  Evangeline.

*** Fair Warning: I acknowledge that horror and twisted tales are not for everyone, so please steer clear if you are disturbed by…well, potentially disturbing tales and/or images.

For those of you who enjoy the darker side of storytelling and expression, please click on the link for Sisters In The Shadows above and be sure to sign up, follow us, or add…

Wondering how much is too much. After a while, the pain kind of eats away at your soul, it undermines all the good in your heart and tries to take away the kindness. You have to try to remember that the person you are inside has not gone away. It is there underneath all of the layers of pain and bull shit. You just have to find it again. If you look hard enough, you will. It isn’t easy, but nothing in this life is easy. You have to work for it.

Some days it feels like no matter how much you beg and plead with your Guardian Angels that they don’t help. When in fact, they are helping you cope. Helping you deal with the pain and then you notice that while the pain is still there, that it isn’t quite as bad as it was yesterday. It moves around to different spots to give you a little relief. Then you think that if it wasn’t for your Guardian Angels, you wouldn’t be able to walk at all.

You have to believe in something to help you make it through the day. Maybe, just maybe I will feel better soon. Then I realize that  it’s a good thought, that’s all it is. A thought. I will never get better, I have to learn how to deal with it, to work around the pain. But I don’t give up on my laughter, don’t give up on you. Even through the pain, you can do it.

What makes me angry is that I can’t do Continue reading
