I Made A Mermaid

I made a Mermaid

She is definatley OOAK,  just like the person she was made for.

I loosely used the pattern link you'll find  below all the pictures

I struggle with faces when ever I make dolls - I decided to go with eyes only - green eyes that matched the recepients eye color

This project was a labor of  L O V E and all I can say is I prefer to knit Gnomes









Mermaid Pattern:

I started out using this pattern first - Thank you Julie-K
http://www.kundhi.com/blog/2010/01/22/tiny-crochet-heart-pattern/

Then I changed a few things so.....

This is how I make my Hearts:

Form magic circle

9 sc into magic circle

ss into 1st sc to join, Chain 1

skip 1, 5 hdc into next sc

sc into next 2 stitches,

1 hdc into next stitch {Center},

sc in next 2 stitches

5 hdc into next stitch, chain 1

Ss into joining stitch {Center}, fasten off, cut,  leave 2” tail, move tail to back of work

Pull magic circle closed, tie loose ends together trim excess

Finished

Wings
With a dot of hot glue join 7” of lace to form a circle, fold, wrap center and tie with dental floss or thread, this forms a bow which becomes “wings”

Hot glue lace wings to the back of heart

Hot glue small alligator clip to the center and you are done.

Happy Valentines Day

SUNRISE: Cold front brings snow to the region

January 24, 2011 6:21 AM

THE GAZETTE

A cold front moving into the Pikes Peak region could bring up to 3 inches of snowfall in some areas Monday.
The National Weather Service predicts 2 to 3 inches of snow, concentrated on the eastern plains, the Palmer Divide and Teller County. Most of Colorado Springs likely will see less than 1 inch of snow and a high of 36 degrees.
Temperatures this week are expected to see-saw with a high in the mid-40s and sunny skies Tuesday and a high of about 40 degrees with a chance of snow Wednesday. Temperatures are forecast in the mid-50s Friday
