I've just returned from a girl scout meeting, threw the child into the shower and then bed. Suffice to say I'm tired enough that I can't think of a better title for this entry. Le sigh.
Anyhoo, Mickey #6 came and went. Apparently, our membership to the mouse of the month club was only lasped for a month...how relieving (/sacasm)! I do sort of feel bad for how he died though. He got his face stuck in the trap. Looks like he crawled on and then backed up a bit when he realized what was going on, but it was too late. Mice without faces = nastiness. I have pictures but will spare you (if you really want to see, email me).
Onto fun things. Hope you're not sick of ami's yet (told you I was in a phase). Pi asked me to make the monkey from the Amigurumi Animals book by Annie Obaachan, which I'd taken out of the library. He's about 5" tall, made with RHSS, and an I hook. Pi liked him so much in the tree, she's left him there.
I also tested a money holding tooth for MomCrochets at Crochetville. Introducing Timmy the Tooth. This guy was made with less than an ounce of RHSS and a G hook...in less than an hour!
(that's $10 but Pi only gets $2 per tooth unless the dentist pulls it. It was the only bill willing to model for me).
I promise that you won't be seeing anymore amis for a little while. Not that my kick is quite over, but because I've run out of stuffing.
On Saturday, girl scouts are taking a trip to Home Depot to learn how to make a wooden boat. Please pray I won't lose a finger somehow!
