Here's a new baby bib I made from a pattern found on this website. Cute, huh? I figure that If I make another one and join them together, this can be a baby tank top!

Hello!!! I know I haven't posted in such a long time. So many things happening! Well...only one: I've got myself into a foot cast. Soooo surfing the net from my Kindle Fire is easier than sitting in front of the laptop in the office room.
Anyway, I have some new pics of stuff I've done lately. Actually, only two things, but that's more than nothing, don't you think? Here they are:

Easy Fingerless Gloves

I added the snowflakes... 8-)

Cupcake Bibs from Crochet Today! magazine, fall 2012

I forgot the pictures of the clean wool!

Of course, it could be cleaner, but I guess it will clean up more as I process it. 8-)

Practice eggs

I don't know how else to call them! Some of my chickens lay really tiny eggs at times.So I suppose they are practicing for future eggs! Here's the pics!

How am I supposed to choose?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

How am I supposed to choose between so many patterns? OK, I have to get  you up-to-date on this. Ever since we last talked, I have been living the shepherdess life; you know, caring for the sheep, etc. Plus the new three goats we "inherited" a few months ago. Mom and two girls. This has kept me busy.
On March, my hubby invited me to go with him to Seattle, Washington, USA!!!!!!!!!!!!! For just a week, but I took it!!! It was wonderful! The weather, the places, the one yarn store I was able to visit, So Much Yarn, was like heaven! Did I mention the weather? Yes, it rains, but it is so nice and cool, even cold, but I loved it! Good thing I had my knitted/crocheted accessories with me: mittens, scarves, hats,etc. 8-) 
So, now he invites me to go back to Spain/ London on October of this year. YOU BETCHA!!!!! So, I have started planning on what I'm going to knit/crochet for this trip. I'm thinking a shawl, a new scarf... so I went to Ravelry, and this is insane! How am I supposed to choose from so many gorgeous patterns? I keep downloading, but can't decide! This should be illegal... hehe
Anyway, I plan on using some recycled yarn I got from two tops I bought at Marshalls for $4.00 each! I didn't care if they look hideous! I still will use the beautiful fingering weight yarn (black with silver lines) to make myself a new shawl. I'm not a shawl girl, but it is only because here in Puerto Rico, you can't use them so much! Right now, the temperature is 88F, but with the heat index it is well over 100. No way I'm gonna use a shawl, scarf, mitten...At least not out of an air conditioned building! 
Another thing I have to tell you is that I started working on my sheep's wool. My hubby sheared Rosita back in February, and I kept the wool inside a pail, adding wool from whichever sheep I was able to get a handful from. Finally, the pail was full, really full. I washed it, about three or four times, and set it to dry outside by the garden. I covered when it seemed like it was going to rain. Finally, I bought a wool picker and started picking. I am already saving wool for next year's batch. Yes, I guess this whole process will keep me busy until next year... 8-)
So, that's all I have to say for now. And to think I didn't think I had anything to say! Guess I was wrong! Well, take care & see you next time! Don't forget to comment!

So much to tell, not enough "wanna"...

Ok, so things have been going nicely, so I guess that's why I feel laaaazy...hehe Anyway, here are some pics of my family's latest lunch out on a Saturday... yumm
My entree at Roka Dura, in Orocovis, Puerto Rico; "mofongo de churrasco & vegetales"

My son's entree, pork ribs & mofongo... 8-)

My hubby's entree: pork ribs & yucca...sad to say the yucca did not taste as good as it looked, so he sent it back and ordered some fries...

Well, as you see, we enjoy eating. See you soon. I have tons more to tell, but Internet is slow, so it annoys me to have to wait so much for pics to upload. 8-P
Oh! I almost forgot dessert!!! 
Fried cheesecake with ice cream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
