Creepy…

I heard someone come up onto the porch this morning, or thought I did. I was sure I did. I went out to see if there was mail. It was early for the mail lady to have been there, but I thought it had to have been her. It wasn’t. I decided to look for…

A few favorite things…

Yesterday I spent some time sewing together bases, or something. I cut up strips of colored cloth and sewed them onto little squares of knit interfacing. I used the machine. I wasn’t sure if it was interfacing at first, not until I ironed the pieces. Yep, interfacing. Fusible. I’m glad I sewed to the appropriate side!…

All day to do nothing…

I saw this online just now. It summed up the past couple of days, especially yesterday, perfectly. I feel like a char woman a lot. A bad one. I’m not dedicated enough to keep everything spic and span. I basically do the bare minimum. I cook from scratch a lot so it can create a…

Feeling in between…

I feel a bit off today. I woke up too early and had sketchy sleep afterwards. It’s made me feel tired and cranky and not sure how to shape my day. I had some options. I could go to the yarn store and hang out where the annual yarn hop is going on. But I’m…

Another one…

I feel I have to write another blog entry since I have things I need to catch up on after not having a computer for several days. I need to get these thoughts and photos out of the queue so new things can come… As I have mentioned, I go out barefoot most days to…

Here I go again…

“You only need one friend,” a former best friend said to me when we were teenagers. She said it as if it were a character defect. I guess it didn’t matter to her that I had befriended her when she didn’t have any friends, and when no one else in our class liked her. Funny how…

Work in progress…

I have been busy upstairs in my craft room and am anxious to get back there, but I wanted to at least post something. I have several cloths in progress. One is an earthy combination of things I’ve learned from others, trying to learn new things, trying to work looser. So far I’m really loving…

The Spider and Her Web…

Yesterday I completed the Spider and Her Web. I had to force myself to sit down and put the wire through the legs, stitch them on. It wasn’t too difficult a task, but I had been putting it off. I’m so happy to have this completed in time to enjoy it for Halloween. I want…

Today, yesterday…

It’s cold today. The coldest day in MONTHS. 46 degrees. I had to scrounge around for something warm to put on, something wool, because almost everything is upstairs having been packed away for summer. Now it’s time to get everything out. I wasn’t ready for that. The auracania wool poncho I was looking for wasn’t…

Something new (to me)…

I have written a thousand posts since my last. It feels like that. I’ve had so many words in my head, but was not able to write them down. So now, I’m here. The past week is a blur of little sleep, one day of a lot of sleep (13 hours), back to little sleep…I’m…
