Locked and…

      No Comments on Locked and…

The lady who runs the craft fair just messaged me; she wanted to confirm if I was coming or not, as tables were starting to run out. I confirmed that I was, and sent her a few pictures of the things I’ve been making this week. I’m getting a wee bit obsessed with making earrings, to the point of having… Read more »

Fleurs

      No Comments on Fleurs

I have spent bits of the past 24 hours working on levelling up my wire wrapping skills. I made a couple of really pretty pairs of earrings last night by bending headpins into loops, and using those to have multiple danglies. Two wasn’t too hard to do, but three? That took a wee bit of doing. And it’s still taking… Read more »

Grinding Sort of Day

      No Comments on Grinding Sort of Day

I have been making things for next weekend pretty much all day to the exclusion of pretty much everything else. It’s included a degree of experimentation, some of which has led to exceedingly pleasing results. One bit had to do with bending a headpin around so I could use it to do multiple danglies. I’m about to attach beads to… Read more »

Not an Actual Cat

      No Comments on Not an Actual Cat

One of the local roundabouts has a metal cat in its centre. I fail at attempting to get a picture of it pretty much every time I go passed; the only really decent shots are on approach, and often I don’t get my phone out quick enough. I can’t claim this is the highest quality shot, but it suffices to… Read more »

I am feeling especially cute today. Cat ears aside, I love my candy corn countess shirt to bits. Add in surviving another day of half-term and it being Friday, and I’m very yessssssssssss. Z and Smalls aren’t back yet, but the verdict is in — Smalls is joining the glasses brigade. She picked out some adorable frames that, ngl, are… Read more »

The Full Complement

      No Comments on The Full Complement

As of today, Z and I both have a full complement of remotes. I’d commented yesterday of my annoyance that I didn’t have one for the soundbar (the smallest one), so a few pounds later, voila. Z was amused, since the ‘everybody knows’ is that there’s the fighting for the remotes, which… naw. We have two sets on the cheap… Read more »

Open Roads

Z and I headed off early this morning to do another round of couch investigation… so early. I’d only had my first round of caffeine early, ha ha. But it ended up being a worthwhile trip, and we ended up with another contender for purchasing. I think it might be *the* one, but we need to discuss it after thinking… Read more »

Okay, Sure

Batman has been super needy lately. We’re not sure why, but we’re doing our best to up his cuddle quota. This is the first time he’s hopped up on the back of my current chair, and yes, it was his roundabout way of eventually trying to get into my lap. I gave him a good cuddle, because he was obviously… Read more »

Um, Whups

      No Comments on Um, Whups

I ended up running my hand knits through the washer and dryer… and accidentally included this particular garment. To say it’s a bit mangled and shrunk is understating the case, ha ha. I’ve managed to stretch some of it back out, but I think that the proper treatment is going to be to reblock it… and make sure my dumbass… Read more »
