Tiny Hello

      No Comments on Tiny Hello

One thing about myself that amuses and bemuses me is my ability for fine work. I can thread needles fairly easily. I can write super-tiny (this being a sample thereof), and I can do all that stuff I make for my shop. I also shake like a leaf by default. Still, I have to wonder what writing I could do… Read more »

Shoes Off, Showing Off

      No Comments on Shoes Off, Showing Off

When it’s a knitting night, I like to wear socks I’ve made to show off. It’s in part to show off to my fellow crafters; I like showing off, but I love seeing their projects too!¬†But also, as a point of inspiration for any rubberneckers who happen go past us. Seeing people sitting and knitting in public elicits one of… Read more »

The Face of Pain

      No Comments on The Face of Pain

I am really stumped as to why, but I have been in a looooot of pain today. My back eventually¬† unkinked some, but the rest was just… ugh. Some of it felt like baby fibro, and others just… general unwellness, I guess. There was a bonus dose of feeling queasy AF for no real good reason, so I’m definitely ready… Read more »

No, it’s not my magic wand, though I guess if I DID have one, it would be a knitting needle. No, this is a tacit reminder of why I almost never use straight needles anymore — one can get lost. One HAS gotten lost, and while I have another pair in this size, I’m super annoyed to have one of… Read more »

Across the Universe

We are currently holed up at R’s house for belated 4th of July-ish celebrations. We are also kid-free, which is bliss. The kiddos are with their grandparents, which hopefully will go as smoothly as it did last time. So that’s nice. We all love each other, but I think that we all appreciate having opportunities to do something different/be somewhere… Read more »

Making Progress

I have made some minor progress on getting earrings listed and organised. Which is to say, the easy ones are mainly done. The main problem now is trying to figure out how I am going to do the listings. With the shell bead ones, there are three different styles, and lots of different potential colours, so it’s trying to figure… Read more »

I have done a good job of not moving today — A++ not moving, ha ha. I did eventually get to starting the photography for to list the things I made for the fete on the Etsy shop. I’ve gotten through the handful of extra adult bracelets, and have gotten a start on the kid bracelets. I got Smalls to… Read more »

So Much For the Afterglow

      No Comments on So Much For the Afterglow

Okay, if you know the album name, that made you smile. If you didn’t, it probably came off disturbingly maudlin, ha ha. While apt, I was aiming more for the first than the second. Well okay, and to highly the whole ‘I am completely drained after yesterday’ thing, which yanno, was always going to be the case. I did my… Read more »

Out of Sight…

      No Comments on Out of Sight…

So yesterday, Smalls went to the doctor about a few niggles. One of them was a lump on her back, which has been judged to most likely be a sebaceous cyst like her father had when he was younger. She’s getting referred for an ultrasound, and if there’s anything that needs doing from there, we’ll go from there. But it’s… Read more »

Nothing Much

      No Comments on Nothing Much

Today has been a day of doing very little, but doing it well. Both girls were home with me, and were awesome at entertaining both themselves as individuals, but also as a pair. I think that we’re all going to make it through this half-term, seeing how there’s only two more day-days before the weekend and return to ‘normal’ operations…. Read more »
