Grinding Levels

      No Comments on Grinding Levels

One of my favourite Ctrl+Alt+Del strips of Ye Olden Days was one about Ethan buying  bunch of food with the intention of grinding his cooking skill. That is sort of how I am feeling today, but in earring making. I’ve made over 20 pairs today, and currently plan to continue making more. Z and I talked about it, and we agreed… Read more »

A Bit of Gussy

Tonight the entire fam is out for a bit of miniature train fun — and free buffet, ha ha. I figured I’d have a bit of fun with my hair, ’cause I can’t remember the last time I braided the front. It’s still pulled back and vaguely tidy rather than hanging loose, but now I have the option! Fancy! ((And… Read more »

Sorting and Shuffling

Today has been a good day, more or less. I got some work-work done… maybe not as much as I wanted to, but I’m almost over the hump to where things’ll pick back up. So yanno, hopefully tomorrow will see that happen. I think that it will. I also finally sat down and got my inventory spreadsheet populated. It also… Read more »

Time’s Arrow

Yes, this picture is hilariously unflattering… but I couldn’t resist being a bit cheesy as a bite-back against emotions from 20 years ago spiking up and stabbing me. I was listening to The Cure, and ‘Just Like Heaven’ came on. I’m okay with this song 99.999% of the time… apparently, this time I wasn’t. It dragged back memories of my… Read more »

We popped over to visit Z’s parents. It’s his mother’s birthday,  so we were taking cards and pressies. She seemed to like her gifts, which is yay; she’s hard to read sometimes. She then invited us to join her and Z’s father for a meal, which um, yes please. *chuckles* We all had a lovely meal, and the girls were… Read more »

Ear Candy

I only got around to trying to make a few bits for the fete this afternoon, and my direction is apparently earrings. I’ve only done the two styles for the moment, but I like them and plan on doing some more in these veins. I’m very exhausted from weather right now. It was the school sports day, so we went… Read more »

Easier, Of Course

For the current pair of socks I am knitting, I finally had to suck it up and learn how to do short rows. I had tried my hand at it previously when I was fiddling with some stuff, but I couldn’t get my head around it. Thankfully, Bill Souza makes really good videos for left-handed people. It was done for… Read more »

Ack, Mah Heart <3

Today was the Village Fun day, so we popped down for a little bit. The girls rode the teacups, and the go-carts, and then we opted for an ice cream. Smalls had her own, but Littler got to a point where she was trying to feed it to all of us. It was a nice little trip out, outside of… Read more »

I made myself buckle down and get it done, so now all the stitch markers are pricetagged and business cardeded. I ended up redoing one of my first stitch marker efforts because it wasn’t up to snuff, and tweaked the prices down on a few things. Most of it was rounding things down from x.25 to x.00 for general ease… Read more »

Organamasation!

I made a start last night on getting my stitch marker stock price tagged and organised. Looks pretty swish, non? Of course, I had less crochet markers to do by a fair old measure, so I’m going to be at it for a bit for the knit ones. Still, at least getting the bulk of it done this far out… Read more »
