As for our little sickie... We went to the vet yesterday and although it was not pretty I think it's doing the trick and we're on our way to recovery. We've made it 24 hours without any accidents. She's humiliated she has to wear the cone and keeps running into things. Now that I know she's going to be ok I can't help from laughing at her!
Stella is spending the day with her Nona so Jim and I could tear the house apart and have the carpets cleaned. It's not pleasant when you start moving things that don't get moved often... I think that we should be required to do this once a year just to get a good cleaning it. I've also had a little time to make these:

In other news, I tried my first loaf of bread from my new book and though a little on the small side and a little goofy looking it was DELICIOUS!!! I couldn't wait to get good pictures so I'll try to get some of the next loaf. If you haven't tried it yet and you're a bread fiend like Stella and I, you need to get the book... go - now!
Salina is coming along, I've split for the arm shaping so it's starting to feel a little more like a sweater. I'm loving the yarn so I really hope the finished sweater fits well. And, just to show that I do finish something once and a while here's one of my sneaky hats. I made Stella 3 Christmas hats. One was a candy cane hat that Jim designed, one was plain green, and the third plain red. The red and green hats had yarn over "holes" just above the ribbing to thread holiday ribbon through. The sneaky part? What two holidays come after Christmas? Valentine's Day and St. Patricks Day which also just happen to be red and green. Change out the ribbon and we've had hats to get us from Thanksgiving through mid-March. I tried to get a picture for you but this was the best I could do. Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm still working on Salina (which isn't helping my crochet cause any.) I'm knitting it in the round, adding a couple of inches to the body (the pattern only calls for a 14" body!). I'm almost ready to split for the arms.
The other night I was trying to make dinner and Stella was in the kitchen with me doing this:
At first I had no idea what she was doing. She just kept putting her head down on the floor with her butt up in the air. Then Jim said, "I bet she's copying Jessica tumbling." The daughters of the amazing woman who watches Stella during the day are in gymnastics. They are always tumbling, doing handstands, etc. She was at home trying to copy the big girls! I somehow manage to fall more in love with this beautiful girl every day!
