i'm hooked on this stuff

this post has absolutely nothing to do with crochet but i just have to share this formula with you:

10 ghirardelli double chocolate bittersweet chips {or a little less, i made it one other time and it was too much} + 1 spoonful swiss mocha instant coffee + 1 spoonful of viennese chocolate cafe' instant coffee + spoonful of confectioner's sugar {unless you don't like it to begin with} = bliss

and i don't really like coffee. but this...

it's a good life,

{i like all lower case posts. it looks cool}

Butterflies and Flutterbies

I was taking a movie back to the library when I noticed a magazine in the free box. It said "Crochet Patterns", so of course, I just had to check it out *winks*. I started looking through and the first thing that caught my eye was a pattern for little butter-flutters. I didn't even look any further. If only for that cuteness, I thought, I have to get it!.

This week-end we are having a Garage Sale (today is the last day so hurry up :-D ), so I made some butterflies to sell (I haven't sold any yet. Come buy some.). By using different size hooks, and different yarn, I made different sizes. I actually used embroidery floss for the little ones. If you want to look up the pattern, it's by Judy Teague Treece.

(Hey, that rhymes!!)
