Stitch Markers

I just love how necessity is the mother of invention sometimes. Today it proved to be true once again. I'm participating in a craft swap and while I made one item, I didn't want it to seem skimpy. One of those "I participated and all I got was one item while another person got three" things. So, I thought and thought. What else could I make that is practical and pretty? The person I'm making for is a knitter so I thought aha! Stitch markers!

And this is what I came up with:

Here is my other foray. Crocheted jewelry!

I really like it. Next I want to try a necklace. Maybe something will make it into my shop. I was all set to take photos and batteries died! Grr. So that is on the docket for this week.

This symbol suits you perfectly: 卐

You can paint it on your face while your beloved, equally-fascist (and crepe-faced) Loreena farts like a pig in your toilet.

Loreena's Crepey Anus said...

☭ 卍

I'll bet if Loreena told you fans of hers the best world's chocolate came from a cat's ass, you all would grab the nearest eating utensil and head straight for the litter box.

And here's one more just for OWL's resident Allgemeine SS-woman! And at least the actual Nazi SS-men looked physically fit... 卍

You have a fat wrist.

First you tell the entire OWL that RealAudio files cannot be downloaded (WRONG), then you have the stupidity to allow just anyone to comment on and spam your blog like this... presumably because you're so damn slow at figuring out how to do things computer and internet related that you probably didn't even know that was an option!

A technological simpleton at its finest, you are.

Go off and have yourself a gay old time sitting on your fat ass and cleaning up your ugly children's bodily fluids while fingerbanging yourself to your 10 thousand Loreena recordings, you scar-covered TWAT!

A certain post on your Facebook reads:

"97% of my waking life responsibilities are noise management and conflict resolution while cleaning up bodily fluids."

Well, your conflict resolution and noise management skills are the WORST I have ever come across. You treat people twice your age like they're in the 1st grade, and you think you know who started what and what is whose fault when you have no real understanding or grasp on the matter on even the most basic of levels! And then everyone thinks you are the voice of reason putting out fires all because you stepped in and basically said "sit down and shut up!" while calling ME out for going overboard for continuing to react after I was being relentlessly harassed and bullied by YOUR fellow Loreena worshiping friends, who also managed to insult my ancestors, my idol AND my dance instructors in the process AND accused me of having multiple personalities by linking a site I made with my friend who had the same name as I do... among numerous other things.

I did make a few mistakes in the way I handled the situation, which I will own up to, but what they did was NOT excusable and NEVER will be. They continued to lambaste me and spread LIES about me and the things I said and you acted like I was just supposed to sit there and take it and "went overboard" for defending myself.

Maybe one of your kids' bodily fluids would make a nice organic face cleanser. I'll bet if Loreena sold hers as a new fragrance, you'd be all over it, bragging to everyone you know.

Anyone who ever had a rallying cry of how selfish of a nation America is does not deserve to live here. You should be thanking God for making you an American.

Just how selfish is this country, you ask? The answer is that America is the most generous country in the world and you should be damn proud. Tell me what these "unselfish" countries you love so much have done?

You said America "will be" the best country in the world when we realize how selfish we are and change that (or something to that effect). No, it always was, and still is, the greatest country in the world but will be even greater when people like you get the hell out of here.
