A reader posted a comment on Mr & Mrs Mouse, asking about the blush I use for my Amigurumi. I use regular human face blush, applied with a Q-Tip. Nothing expensive or fancy..... I purchased mine from my local 99 Cent Store. Any face blush will work, just apply lightly.
Great job! I love it.

I am still adjusting to losing my Hollywood this past weekend. He has joined his buddies - Midnite on left, passed at 17 years of age, Baby in Center, passed at 15 years of age and Hollywood, on right, passed at 15 years of age. They are in Kitty heaven, together again.
Zeus seems a little disoriented, he lost his playmate.
Zeus and Hollywood together, a loving moment.

Lend Me A Kitten
I will lend to you for a while
a kitten, God said.
For you to love while he lives,
and mourn after he’s dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe just two or three.
But will you, ‘till I call him back,
take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
and should his stay be brief,
you’ll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from earth return.
But there are lessons you can give
I want this kitten to learn.
I’ve looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true,
And from the folk that crowds life’s land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take
my kitten home again?
And my heart replied,
“My Lord, Thy Will Be Done.”
For all the joys this kitten brings,
the risk of grief I’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness,
we’ll love him while we may.
And for the happiness that we’ve known,
forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back
much sooner than we planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes,
and try to understand.
If by our love we’ve managed
your wishes to achieve,
in memory of his sweet sweet love,
please help us while we grieve.
And when our cherished kitten
departs this world of strife,
Please send yet another needing soul
for us to love all his life.

I wanted to take this opportunity and wish everyone a very Healthy, Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year. Another year is passing, and as I reflect on 2011, I am hoping 2012 will be more fruitful. I have been so busy with so many things this year I feel I did not have a productive year as far as my crafting goes. I am hoping 2012 will be better. Stay tuned for some new patterns! Stay safe.
Happy New Year!

There are rumors that the Crochet Calendar will discontinue, but from what I have heard, there will be a 2013 calendar. My only suggestion is to write Accord Publishing and voice your options in continuing with this wonderful calendar. My guess is that if they see there is a large popular demand, the calendar will definitely continue.
I want to thank everyone for all of the wonderful positive comments. Happy Crocheting!
Here is a rare loving moment, Hollywood and Zeus together.
