I switched to Bloglovin!!

Well, Bloglovin has made everything quite easy to switch readers!!!!  Once I imported my bloglist, I just followed the prompts to "Claim" my blog.  That was also easy!!!!  I still show my follow by Google on my blog.  I will leave it until it actually goes away.  But the button to follow me via Bloglovin is on the left side of my blog now.  I had read lots of good things about Bloglovin, that's why I chose it as my new blog reader.  I am glad I waited a few days because that allowed Bloglovin to come up with an easy way to make the switch.  Thank goodness!!  I was a bit scared of trying to follow other difficult (to me!) routes to gaining what I set out to do.  

So, if you are ready to change over to Bloglovin, just follow the link here.    Follow the instructions for a quick and easy changeover!!!

Love to all,

Changing My Blog Reader!

Hello everyone!

Sorry to say I am still way down under the weather ... I haven't been on my computer very much, just laying around on the sofa and snoozing a lot.

I did catch all of the "to do" about Google Reader going away, so I decided to change over to Bloglovin when I found an easy way to do it.  I just followed this link, and it imported all of my blogs from Google Reader - easy peasy!  Also, if you make the change, don't forget to claim your OWN blog.  I am attempting to do that now with this post.  I will see if that part works and let you know.

March Winds

It seems as though the March winds have blown another nasty bug my way.  Just when I thought I was feeling better!  Seeing the doc yesterday just as the nasty bug hit was a good thing.  Now on meds to chase it out of my system.  It's made me so tired and have no energy at all.  I did manage to get my swappies made just before all of this happened.  Now the trick is to feel well enough to wrap and package them up and go out to post them.  Please forgive my lateness, but they are a-coming!!

* I've heard that Elizabeth is going to have surgery.  That makes me feel sad that she has to go through it.  I am with you all in wishing her my best and hearty hugs and prayers that her surgery is over fast and she is on to a super quick recovery.  

* Sandy's beloved dog, Maya, will also be going through surgery.  Sending wishes and prayers for poor Miss doggie ~ and warm hugs to her "mom" to hang in there.

* To those of you who have been sick with the flu and other nasties, I hope you are feeling so much better and are back to normal now.  I know there have been some bad snowstorms across blogland, and I sure hope that warm spring sunshine melts it away soon.  Rhode Island was fortunate during the last Nor'easter.  Parts of Massachusetts, some areas not all that far from me, got hit with 20+ inches while we got away with 1 1/2 to 2 inches.  Then it rained, and took most all of that away.  Today it became a monsoon out there, with wind whipping the rain around crazily.  Thank goodness it wasn't snow.  We've had so much gloom here lately, I am ready-teddy to see the sunshine!!!

A few pix of what I got made so far:

Jumping bunnies

He's a cutie Bunny Boy, too!

Two different sized sculpted bunny wips

Made with 65mm poms, just a wip for now

The smaller size bunny in pink, wip

A very wee bunny wip

Wool felt and pink in his ears is hand-felted wool

Side view~looks a bit like Beatrix' Peter Rabbit

I can't show the Easter spoolie swappie that I made because I don't want to spoil the surprise for my partner!  I will show it down the bunny trail when I'm sure she has already received it!!  I was supposed to be finishing a black chunky cowl for my daughter, but I got playing with these poms and sculpting them, and had fun doing it, so I haven't gotten to her cowl yet.  As soon as I feel better, I think I will be able to finish my bunnies, chicks, maybe a duckie, and the cowl.

Have a good week, bloggies!!!
