I promised to start this today:
It's time to begin The Great Seaming.  Again, if you have made any squares at all for Blankapalooza, please send them.  Even if you only have one, it can be used.

I also promised to celebrate my 1000th post, the new year and the 10th anniversary year of Knitters' Hunk with a contest.  So, you should all know that this box
is waiting to be filled with prizes.  Leave your answers in the Comments section before 8 PM tomorrow.  I'll use a random number generator to choose the winner, numbering the comments in the order they come in.  The question?


I'll start.
Barry Gibb
Robert Redford.


  1. I seem to recall big crushes on Harrison Ford (still love him) and Richard Dean Anderson. Happy New Year!

  2. 17 was a long time ago... But I'd say Robert Sean Leonard and Josh Charles. :)

  3. elvis Presley and george Harrison

  4. Oh gosh. Seventeen: Oh certainly Robert Redford. Also Sean Cassidy and Rod Stewart. Paul Newman. (older man) THis is rather embarassing. :) I had a dream I met Paul Newman at a gas station and I was totally smitten. I had this dream YEARS ago. still like to remember it

  5. I don't know if they were considered celebrities at the time...but as a swimmer, I always had a thing for swimming stars...Phelps and Lotche were hot when i was 17 and they're still gorgeous now!

  6. Paul McCartney. Safe for any age but he came out with "Venus and Mars" when I was 17.

  7. I have no idea. Seriously. I liked a lot of people, but seldom to the point of having a crush ...

  8. Robert Redford, Paul Newman, David McCallum (remember The Man From Uncle???). Hard to remember that far back. And yes, Bruce Boxleitner for sure!!

  9. Oh my. Robert Redford, Tom Jones, Paul Newman, and somewhat embarrassingly, David Cassidy. Oh, and Glen Campbell. Those dimples! I was 17 in 1973.

  10. Harrison Ford! No matter that he's older than my mother.

  11. Michael Landon from Bonanza and Robert Redford. DANG, I'm old!

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:

Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.

As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
