Candy Dish Doily and a Flufferfly!!

Well I have been in somewhat of a slump lately with my crocheting and picture taking and blogging... I just don't think any of it is any good... I didn't like the Broncos football. Or the grape pop can cozies... (Now I have three, which isn't even a 'set', but ran out of purple yarn.... sigh...) Anyway I started (and actually finished!! Woo Hoo!) this doily. I am in a yahoo group (Doily of the Month, the link is in my sidebar over there...), but you can find the pattern at Crochet Pattern Central, too: Candy Dish Doily
And here we have a 'Flufferfly'. :P Last night I was just looking through my crochet books for a fun fast scrap crochet project... I thought 'I should make some of these butterfly magnets'... (In '101 Easy Scrap Crochet Projects'.) Then our four year old came in my room and said 'Can you make me one?' (sigh...) So, of course, I did. I told him 'I still haven't made anything for Eli yet. He is going to start feeling left out if I don't make him anything...' I thought it would be fun to put fur on the outside. Then I said 'It's a flufferfly!' and he liked that. So that's it's name. :P You can find a similar butterfly pattern here. Just use variegated for the first two rows. Then, a solid. Then (add a row of) fur for the outside. (Or variegated again, if you don't like fur...) Then glue a magnet to the back and stick it on your fridge. :D

That's a cute butterfly, Tina, I love the way you did the body :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog, that last post is supposed to get me paid $5., I hope I could make a lot of postings like that...but its hard to keep the blog interesting.
Btw, I thought you got a new camera? Maybe you should practice some more on taking shots, its probably just the lighting...

I was going to take different shots. I did with the doily, to get the right lighting (well, better than the other shots, anyway....)

So you get paid to advertise other peoples' blogs or something like that? I thought his blog was interesting.

Well, it was quite interesting - though I only got to know his blog through the advertisers' list, otherwise I would not have stumbled on his blog.
For international blogs like mine and Lily's, we only have a limited source of advertisers, but for U.S. blogs there are so many to choose from.
