"Knitting and crocheting has been my hobby since childhood. I started making stuffed toys for children hospitals several years ago. It has become a passion, I absolutely love making them. My “Critters” are a nice cuddly, hug-gable, lovable size for the children. And what’s truly amazing is how much pure pleasure a person can receive by creating them."
My patterns are written so that they are easy to follow, and include photos and instructions to help you. If you haven’t tried making a toy using the knitting in the round method, give it a try, your in for a very pleasant surprise! If you have a question contact me at bjfromnv@gmail.com

Greetings from Ideehoooo.......................




Well its gonna be a hot one today. Little breeze blowing, but the humidity is up there. Stayed up til the wee hours. Got one of my patterns revamped. The word program I am working with is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo touchy should I say? I just rechecked the 2 patterns I was working on and found a mistake. And with this program, I can truthfully say, I don't know if it was me or the program. I'm tempted to take it off and install microsoft office. The thing is this lap top doesn't have a very big hard drive, and when I got it I had no idea I would end up using it for making patterns. I have looked at different software and I really don't see much out there that has any bells or whistles that I want to blow.
But there is nothing more frustrating than trying to complete something when weird and frustrating things keep happening. Actually I call it burping and f-rting! Puters can do alot of that. And another thing that drives me crazy is the spell checker doohicky.................I just love those little squigggly red lines, so I find myself diliberately misspelling words to see how many squiggly red lines I can get in one sentence. 



There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.
The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.
The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, 'You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. But It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound will still be there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.
Remember that friends are very rare jewels indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us. 

 Please forgive me if I have ever left a 'hole' in your fence. :)
