I sing alto, but don't read music so much as memorize it quickly. I prefer Bach to Mozart. I prefer Ursula K le Guin to Arthur C Clarke. I love to cook (and to eat); I would rather have a perfectly baked french roll than a mediocre napoleon. I make truffles and icecream and boston brown bread and homemade kimchee. Currently addicted to crochet.
So, I signed up for a crochet war in which the weapons were amigurumi bears made to order. I "killed" my first target with a green bear (made with a neat green/gold yarn), but didn't get another target in time before I was YARNILY ASSASSINATED by a variegated blue bear ( very demurely holding a bouquet of beaded forgetmenots)...
but, haha! I resurrected and am now working on a Raspberry Icicle Bear. Beware the Zombie Hook of dooooooooom
ALMOST finished project! Filet crochet valence with the word DOOM, hearts and flowers, a lacy border of crocheted fuschias (which, according to DD, since it is in maroon, reminds her ever so daintily....of dripping blood). Rather than 'american gothic', it's gothic americana. It's blocking right now, and has a date with a dowel rod, a window, and a camera.... in that order.... It took approximately 4 balls of crochet cotton. Luckily I was able to score 2 from the consignment craft store for 2 bucks, and the other two were stash-busting. Woo hoo for finishing a project!

Ok, I ordered from these people, very nice. They sent my package, but it broke in transit 5 WEEKS ago. (I never received the package, UPS sent it back to them). I never received ANY information from these people. I called them repeatedly, I e-mailed their "returns" department three separate times. Finally, in desperation, I contacted the Better Business Bureau. Thanks to the Better Business Bureau, they have sent me a refund. All these guys would have had to do is CALL me. Or E-Mail me. Just LET ME KNOW what is happening with my order?? I'm really sorry I had to go so far as to call the BBB. On the other hand, it did get me my refund. So, WARNING WARNING. IF you choose to do business with these people, and there is some problem with your order, DO NOT EXPECT TO BE TREATED WELL. IN FACT, EXPECT TO BE COMPLETELY IGNORED.
