P is for Puppies

Why is P for puppies? Only because they are the cutest darn things on the planet. Except maybe kitties, but they don't start with P.

Example one

Example two

This could go on all day, but I will try to control myself.

P is also for Penis

Ok seriously or maybe not so much. I came across this penis chapstick holder. It is for knitters and the pattern is FREE so I may just have to try it. Wonder if anyone would want one.

P is also for Play

The thing that ate my A to Z time. I wanted to share some of the pictures of the costumes that I helped work on. 

The lovely Holofernias dresses on the right.

I made two of the four pairs of pants you see here, though I don't know who got them. I also had a hand in the King's cape.

 I made the pages tunic and then helped alter it when the sleeves were too long.

 I also worked on this tunic, though I think it is the one I messed up and a dear friend had to fix.

 I had nothing to do with this outfit, but it is my darling Gwen so I had to include it.

As a bonus this is a shot of the whole cast just before we started dismantling the set.

O is for Oh Crap It's May

Well as you can tell I was not able to finish the A to Z Challenge. I tried my best, but life just got in the way. Between getting sick twice and Gwen's play I was just over scheduled and exhausted. However, I like the alphabet theme thing and I have a few that I really wanted to get to so I am going to continue plugging along even though time is up.

O is for Octopus

I love it! I want it! So i must make it. Usually all the cute stuffy patterns I find are for crochet, but this one says for knitting. The drawback is that it is not one of the free ones, but $6 isn't much.

O is for Oil Painting Grandma

I wanted to share one of my Grandma's wonderful paintings. Someone once offered to buy it from me.

As I have said before my Grandma was of the Bob Ross school of painting. I love this painting because it has purple instead of dark blue depicting night fall. I also love how the two streams collide into the waterfall. Of course there are the obligatory happy little trees and they do look jolly. My most favorite part is how the clouds part in the center. I remember this picture hanging over my Grandparents couch for many years. It was not until after her death and my Grandfather's relocation to an apartment that it came to live with me.
