The picture above is my 6th grade picture it reflects one of the best times in my life. Most of the people in that picture I was in class with from Kindergarten until High School. We knew each other parents, fought over boys, who had the best hair, a gang of misfits.

Valentine Love

This is the finished Valentine Kitty for my brother and his partner. It was the first sock toy I have ever made and though he looks a little messy he was a learning experience.

I am a lucky cat
Handmade for you both

Stitched with care

My ring is for my bottom
Because the bitch forgot my legs
So Happy Valentine's Day
May your luck be like love endless

Happy Valentine's Day.
