Cat Toys

Originally, I made 3 of the little mice, but the little white one has been stolen by Moose. He went running with it last night and I haven't found where he stashed it!
These were really just a fun little experiment that I did. The triangle is just a square that I knit with a checkerboard pattern that I sewed up with some catnip in it. The mice were done on dpn and were actually easy to make up a design for.

I'm Still Here
Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

Easter Peeps

"Easter Peeps"
made with Adriafil Carezza yarn.
You can't eat him, or watch him puff up in the microwave, but he's pretty darned cute!
He looks a little like a stroke victim.. all lopsided, but for my first time using double pointed needles I think I did alright.

I'm working on doing a handful of these before Easter to give to family & friends. I don't have much time, now do I!?
The pattern for this cutie can be found here.
