1 pint of ice cream, 1 blue rug

Check this out! Now you can make ice cream in a plastic ball! Looks like a hamster ball to me. Still, though, I wouldn't even be able to make it to the store & back in 20 minutes for ice cream, and besides, this looks like fun. And they come in pink!

And speaking of ice cream, I gotta stock up on heavy cream and half & half for when my brother comes to visit me next week! YAY! He is going to be so spoiled on this visit, hehehe. . .let me tell you, if you do have to move away from your familiy/friends, move somewhere people actually want to visit. (Read: NOT Temple, Texas!) That way, you have something more interesting to show them than the Wal-Mart. (Read: Temple, Texas!)

And speaking of my brother, I owe him a rug. A little over a year ago, he decided to decorate his apartment ocean-style, and asked me if I could make him a rug to go with his new decor. I picked up about 20 yards of fabric; 10 yards each true blue stretch knit and sky blue flannel. As of last night, the most progress I'd made was cutting said fabric into 1-inch strips. (And, thanks to ABC Family, now I've got the "Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory" songs stuck in my head today. . . Gene Wilder was genius, I say!)

Back to the rug! I decided to try my hand at freeform crochet; I'm thinking a circle, with waves, and. . .stuff. Will post the draft sketch tonight when I get home.

The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last!

Till next time,

  1. to be honest, the freeform stuff doesn't really ring my bell...

    except that sunburst! that's awesome! and in different colors it would look pretty cool as just an abstract kinda thingie...
