I'm amazed that april is almost over! I have been so busy it is not even funny! 3 people I know are preggers, I finished my mom's birthday present, and I added a pattern to my etsy (the honeysuckle dragon) as well as participated in swaps and worked a lot! lol
I'm having a bit of a down day since I'm going to have to say goodbye to my beloved Ladybug tomorrow. Ladybug is a beagle and she's 14. I was a meanie and left her with my parents when I got married 3 years ago. she's been acting very strange for the past week and my mom noticed yesterday that she has a mass in her abdomen that is the size of a grapefruit. Ladybug has had a long doggie life, She does not do well in surgery (not that my dad would consider this anyway) and she's old. So Tomorrow I will be saying goodbye.
As a result I need to cheer myself up so I'm posting a bunch of patterns and tut's which have been e-mailed and commented so I could find them over the last month. I hope they are helpful and fun for you guys as I will be throwing myself into some crafty endeavor soon to take my mind off the sadness.
