The Polish Star afghan is “growing” steadily, it almost covers my full size sofabaed.  Here are some pics of how it looks now since I last posted:


6/12/08:  EDITED TO ADD  I find the Needlecraft Shop leaflet, Spectacular Polish Stars by Dot Drake (pictured on my prior blog post on this project) on regularly, just search on Polish Star, crochet or Spectacular Polish Stars, crochet and you may be lucky enough to find it.  I am working on the border now so it will be done soon.  Here is the Ebay listing I found on it today:

Tribute to Sugarbelle

Posted on May 9, 2008. Filed under: family pets | Tags: , |

Sugarbelle (called Belle for the most part, Belber, or Belle Belle) is my brother Mike’s dog (my “niece”).  She is very sick right now with Evan’s Syndrome ( and will more than likely not be with us long.  I’ve rarely met an animal I didn’t love, wish I could say the same for some people I’ve met. 
Belle, you are a sweet pup and will be sorely missed by your parents, Mike and Debbie, and your big brothers, Keith, Kirk and Chad.  You will also be sorely missed by me and your other loving auntie, Kirsten.  Hope there are lots of green meadows for you to run in, balls to catch and retrieve, fish ponds to jump in, and several small furry things you can chase all day (without harming any of them) when you cross over the Rainbow Bridge into Happy Hound Heaven.  6/18/08: EDITED TO ADD  I just found out that Sugarbelle was indeed put to sleep on 5/13/08.  Hugs to “dad” Mike and “mom” Deb and “brothers” Keith, Kirk, and Chad.
