Absent minded

So sorry peeps.
It's not like me to not post a tag and have it up for awhile and then have it come down, all the while I haven't said tickity boo to any of you.
So again, apologies.
Here's the tag.

I did the pole again.
It is such a lovely pole.
I am a huge fan of the camo swatch at the bottom. I think for the next pole cover, I may do it all in alternating camo colors.

Cause I do love me a pole cover. Even if they do keep coming off.

In other news, the person who did IYBD is doing something is August where everyone tags things with those little feet. I had been in the process of making some feet anyway, so I cannot wait.
Meanwhile, I want to go back to the beach.

Canada day!

Location: Holland Point Park, Victoria, BC, Canada
Since Canada day was the only day both me and my roommate had off together, we decided to go for a bike ride along the beach.
I figured this would be a perfect opportunity to do some yarn bombing as well!
So we biked along and hung out at the beach. We saw these awesome rails that were worked over by the water. I decided to tag one. I love the way the metal looks after it's all rusted.

I did these rocks when we went down to a cove and watched everyone else play in the water. I really enjoy doing rocks like these.

And then, on our way back, I saw this absolutely picturesque view, so I decided to tag it. I like that it looks like a little rainbow.


All in all it was a great little bike ride. We spent the afternoon out in the sun, went to this amazing Mexican resturaunt, and had a great time.
The summer of yarnbombing continues!

Birthday and gifts

So I can't remember if I mentioned this or not, but I threw a yarn party for my birthday!
It was basically a cheap ploy to get more yarn, and guy what peeps? It worked!
Look at how much yarn people brought!

And I found it entertaining that I got two bundles of camo yarn. That's going to be fun to play with. And lots of my favorite, the kind that goes from one color to another and another and so on!

Anyway, in other news, I made up some Super Mario Brothers type things this week, cause this couple at work really likes the games (well, the guy more so than the girl, but I think the girl likes the cute yarn craft).
For Ben's birthday, I made him this green 1 up mushroom.

And then for our birthday dinner (the couple, myself and my roommate), I made them this Piranha Plant in tube, and this red mushroom.


It's been a lot of fun making them. I want to make mushrooms in all kinds of colors, but I also want to be true to what mushrooms there really are. Either way, they are fun to make.
Hopefully I will get to do more yarn bombing today on my bike ride.
