I don't get to brag about how beautiful my niece is but here is a picture i snapped sunday. She is weird...i mean that in a good way and a bad way. Good as dramatic but also bad...overly dramatic...sometimes it hurts how she over reacts to something. but i love her and i can't wait to see how she grows up. She is sometimes really stubborn and temperamental (like her mommy) but i have also seen her love, and how much she loves her cousins. And now me. A long time i have worn glasses and have suffered from the sun. I know that there are prescription sunglasses but...too expensive for me. Back in 2006 I wore contacts and i was able to wear sunglasses..but contacts just weren't for me. Deal extreme was doing a promotion for their website. I wound up getting these snap on sunglasses... As you get older, you really don't care how you look, as long as you aren't hurting. today i had a migraine...these couldn't have come at a better time.
This was this last sunday. I was dropping krystal off at home, and i thought it would be a great time for them to visit my mom. So we went swimming... I feel so badly for my babies.. they can only swim for like 15 minutes at a time...before they are shivering uncontrollably...and i have to force them out of the pool. they don't like that.And since I have been running for almost 5 weeks straight, I haven't done much tatting...but I won a thread giveaway. Thus the next set of pictures....beautiful!

its all the same thread...just taken differently. sea of thread...I LOVE IT!

Faux tatting???

Tell me. does this look familiar? I found it at a thrift store yesterday. I was like OMG I FOUND SOMEONES TATTING... I pick it up and it was like plastic... or something...flexible, white. I don't usually bother Anthony with tatting stuffs but i really had to show him this one...The thing was made to resemble tatting...even more so proven, there were little lines to seem like they were stitches....

I thought that this was so funny that someone went through the trouble to make something look like tatting, but didn't actually tat it...strange? they even went as far as having little plastic piece sticking out like little picots. sorry i couldn't get a better picture... but i thought i would share with you guys!

Fate or what not.

So to start i realized something... I am meant to have friends named Melanie and Michelle. Why i was thinking this is because a couple years ago, i had a couple of friends...Melanie and Michelle. Some drama went on and we are no longer friends. I was reading a nice blog...from someone nicknamed smellyann. I spent an entire 2 days reading it... i didn't even finish. But i went and friended her, probably everywhere. Her name i came to find out was Melanie. I would laugh, because every time i would talk about her, I would have to clarify with who ever it was i was talking to, that it was my Internet friend, not Melanie Melanie. Then someone messaged me on youtube about my videos, asking for help. After a couple messages it clicked in my head that her name was Michelle. So then having to talk to Anthony about what i am doing, i started the whole not Michelle Michelle thing But awhile later i was thinking...i have my friends Melanie and Michelle. AM i just meant to have friends by these names...and even funner... i was talking to Jessie about my long time ago friend shannon...yes...shannon. and she was all like but your were friends with yourself...i then went on to explain about Shannon and Shannon.

Its a small joke that i laugh at every time someone asks...because i think in my head about the joke i use to tell to myself...Our street was awfully quiet because of all the shh's... there was Shannon, Shannon, Sharon, Charlene, Shawna...all on the same block. that was fun.

Any way I think i ought to get down to the actual post...First up. We have Azriel trying EXTREMELY hard to be iron man. those are pillows in his shirt, and no its not the 90's (shoulder pad joke)

And here we have Anavay dressing up her dog... isn't he perty?

And because i didn't have a silly picture of Atreyu...I threw this one in, so he didn't feel left out.

On to tatting. I have been tatting but more tiny, trying new things tatting, I really haven't gotten any further on my hanky edge but I'll get around to it. This is the thread that I got from Fox... It is so pretty and i tried breaking some with my hands got hopefully it will tat up beautifully...See I thought that it had gotten lost in the mail but it was just because of the mail strike...But see this is a great example of something to do in my next photo...

A lot of needle tatters have the question "where do you keep your needles" Well. Last year or earlier this year I won a drawing over on intatters. Kersti sent me a test tube looking thing for holding your needles.. and then she also sent a needle. So needless to say I have been using that...until yesterday. Yesterday I was getting up from my recliner and for some reason my tatting bag was under there. I SMOOSHED it! I heard cracking and breaking but when I looked and investigated my bag, I saw that nothing had broken..this morning i took out my needle tubey and IT WAS WHAT BROKEN. I was heartbroken. So my plans are to super glue it together. BUT in the m&m minis container will do...And its portable...I could just pop my thread that fox gave me into it (cause it fits) And then i would have everything I would need to do needle tatting. Anyway I hear a whole bunch of loud pops... so either fireworks are going off or someone is getting shot...maybe both!

A sunday stealing to fill time... sorry, but it was effective!

The Faceless 4th of July Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!!!

Today we ripped off a blogger known as Jana at the blog That's Me, Jana!. She states that she was tagged by Lallopallo. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!
