candy corn cup cozies and coasters
i made these for an exchange. its not a haloween exchange just a cup cozie and coaster exchange. i made them haloween cause everytone seems to have halloween on the brain already. alexia is gonna be a cat this year. but she made it very clear she does not want the paint on her face. so now i am looking for a mask. or at least a cat nose thingie
flower heart doily
this is my first time posting on here since i joined so i figured i would post something good. i just finished this up today. its for Christmas of course and i was thinking it would be alot bigger then it is. its only 7 inches from the bottom point to the top point. and it should be a doily but i think its to small to be one. but that's OK cause its not for me wither. oh and it was also my first time doing the symbols. ya know what i mean. like they have in the magic crochet magazines. i wonder if that what its actually called?? oh well i am very proud of it. and i think who ever gets it (or the other one awaiting the flower) will be happy to get it.

this weeks movie review
this week i watched disturbia. it had shia labouf in it. and i loooove him too. not as much as edward norton. but i have watched him since he was little. he is an awsome actor. and this was a good move too. not scary at all. not really suspencful either. i guess cause i saw the window. that movie where the guy broke his leg so he sat in the window and watched people in the apartment complex. so i knew this story already. but still think i am gonna buy it. not sure. i give it 4 outta 5 stars. cause i though it would be scary or something and it wasnt.

this weeks movie review
this week i watched the illusionist. i loved this movie. but i have love every movie Edward Norton has been in. starting with primal fear. now i figured out this movie as soon as the good stuff got going i knew the end. but there were times i wondered if i was wrong. i am definitely gonna buy this DVD so i can have it for those times the cable is out. and so i can watch it with my hubby when he gets home. i give it 4 out of 4 stars. everyone go watch it!!!!

i made this for an exchange. its from a book called weekend projects or something to that effect. i cant remember. its my moms book and i just copied the pattern out of it. the book says its 10 inches but mine is almost 12 and i used a smaller hook so i guess its wrong somewhere but i still like it. it was fast to make too!!!!
