Middle Of The Night and Still Up

I've been crocheting and promoting a lot, trying to get ready for the holiday shoppers. Unfortunately, this year seems to be a lot slower than last. I don't know what's changed. If anything, i have more in stock than i did last year and have been doing more promoting. I hope it picks up soon.

Anyway, here's the latest i made.Now available in my shop Debbie Crochets 
On that note, i better get to sleep...

Under The Sea

I just finished a custom order for Jellyfish. They where fun to make and so cute. They would look nice hanging up.

Update on Buckwheat

I haven't been doing much of anything new with my crochet, so i figure i would give you an update on Buckwheat. I can't believe it's 3 1/2 years already since i found him born outside in my woodpile to a pair of feral cats. Hard to believe he was so tiny and sick. The vet didn't think he was going to make it. I had to feed him with a bottle and give him medication for an eye infection and pneumonia. He pulled through. Now he's a whopping 15 pounds and is huge. I wonder if he's not part Florida panther-lol
Here's the before photo and a photo i just took of him.

Cat Butt Coaster

Here's one of the latest projects i've been making- Cat Butt Coasters.

  If you've ever owned a cat, you know this has happened. You're trying to watch t.v. or read when the cat decides it wants you attention. It jumps up on you and turns and gives you the stink wink!
Yes the lovable cat has a personality all it's own..

I have a bunch of the brown mixed and i will add more colors as i go along.

Hello....Is Anyone There?

Just wanted to know if anyone reads my blog postings.  Maybe i'm doing something wrong and just don't or can't see amount of times read. Anyway here's the latest since i last posted...

I added a bunch of holiday themed kitchen towels and too many other items to mention. Check out my shop for the latest and get a jump start on your holiday shopping.

It's the height of hurricane season with an eye opening "almost" from Hurricane Erika. Luckily she pooped out before she came here. Just a nasty rainy day from the left-overs today. Now to keep a watch on Fred....
I'll take that as a second chance to get my hurricane supplies together...

P.S. If you could just comment so i know if  my blog is working or not -thanks

Gone Fishin'

I haven't been posting much crochet lately due in part that our nephew came to visit for summer vacation. We did a lot of fishing and stuff the hubby and i normally don't do. I like fishing, but it's not hubbys favorite thing. Now i have to find a new fishing buddy.

One of the spots we went fishing was the Eau Gallie River. There for the first time since i moved to Florida, i saw Manatees. There was a group of about eight  swimming right near us. Naturally we had to find a new spot to fish.

Here's a picture i took of one of them. It was huge. I would guess this one was probably 6 feet long and could have pushed 800 pounds if not more. Gentle giants.
Sadly the Eau Gallie River is in pretty bad shape and has to be dredged (muck removed from the bottom of the river) It's been referred to as "Black Mayonnaise" . Where to put it is another story as it will smell pretty bad. The talk was to put it in our dump, but still debating.  From my understanding the muck was created by chemicals used in lawn care. The rainwater runoff brought it to the river. This and other things like rotting plants, algae etc. Either way, it's bad.

Other than that, i didn't catch anything. My nephew caught some little spotted trout (i think that's what is was) We would just release as i wouldn't eat anything from the river as it is now. Anyway, it was nice.
