Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

Tested a pattern..............

Pipe Fox(es)
A lovely lady from over at the 'ville put out a request for pattern testers. Well I thought this little guy was the cutest.... so I asked if I could test for her. Yeah!!! She said yes!
Now you know there has to be a little story behind this ... its me we're talking about here.
So.... I took a dive in my yarn stash and came out with this fun orange yarn that was given to me by my Aunt who had sent home several large bags of yarn back at Thanksgiving time.
I sat down... went to get out the required hook... and .... hmmm... where is my hook? Oh man... I cant find the one the pattern called for. Oh well... this yarn feels a bit on the thin side... so I'll just use a smaller hook. As you see... there are two Foxes here.......... one with the smaller hook... and one with the hook that was called for in the first place .. which I found as I was finishing up the smaller one. *sheesh*
The small one is going to a friend for her son.. and the bigger one is for David! He got a 100% on a spelling test the week before last... and a 100% on a pre-test this last week. So this was his prize for doing so well.
here they are coiled up.
here they are laying out straight
Thank you Shaz for letting me test this for you.......... it was really fun.. and turned out adorable.
I'm staring #3 now.. .hehehee... that one is going to be for Michael.
have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone
thanks for stopping in to take a peek at my fun today.
hugs... love... & blessings

Very cute, but are you sure they aren't pigs? No matter, they are still precious! Happy Sunday!

hehehe... Diane!!
Well.. I guess because I had them all curled up... they came across as pigs. :) but they are called Pipe Foxes. The original pattern calls for them to be done in a furry type yarn... which probaby gives a better effect of foxes. Thank you for the compliment though... I had alot of fun with them.

Shaz.... Thank you!!! for letting me test for you! They were tons of fun.. easy to follow along on the pattern.. and just darn cute done.

you ladies have a WONDERFUL rest of your weekend.
