"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

Still working on those leftovers?

Just dropping in, to say we had a very nice “Thanksgiving” and I hope that everyone else did too! Starting to feel more and more like winter, and not being my fav time of the year, the little bit of depression that is trying to settle on me is not pleasant.  I realize that we all have our battles with it. I just can see where it’s almost predictable this time of year.


Here in Idaho, the days tend to be cloudy and dark so they aren’t real bright. Another thing I miss about Nevada. Dark days, tend to make moody days! Too much time on my hands, and too much time to think about people and relationships, bla, bla, bla. The mind is a terrible thing sometimes. Too many things to think about. And when a person gets older, you tend to want to get things handled. Take care of the loose ends. You just never know, if you “know” what I mean.  Have you figured out that I am not the happiest of campers at the moment?


I have so many things to be grateful for, but the human condition does not allow for perfect bliss 24/7! Oh, wouldn’t that be nice? Just another dream, but some day. And believe me, when I say, that’s a fact. So my dear reader, you really do have bliss to look forward to.

I am so thankful that I can still get outside and walk, just to be outside and see and smell and marvel! It’s just too beautiful for words sometimes. I am always thinking about things I should get done, haven’t gotten done, I just nag myself to death sometimes. And what a total waste of time. I might just write this and delete it. But, maybe not.

I always try to leave a positive thought to every action. And how can you feel true happiness if you haven’t felt true sadness and despair?   Anyway…………..hang tough baby….get those needles out, it’s gonna be Xmas before you know it.


I took a couple of shots on 11/11/11………..:)………….take care…….smile, it helps those moody days go away…………..
