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 »

Inside

This photo is 500% me being a smart-ass. It is, of course, the inside of my phone case, one of my most photographed objects. This one happened to snap while I was getting my phone flipped to take a picture of me and the visiting friend. We had a lovely lunch, and a lovely visit. He ended up staying to… 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 »

Photograph-ary

I am grudgingly starting to get the earrings I’ve made listed. This has requires me to attempt to find ways to get the earrings¬† positioned for best photographing, hence the little yellow triangles. It seems to be helping a bit, though I had to make a little one a bit flatter to get… well. Angles. Things. Fancy, ha ha. I… 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 »

Turning It Around

I have made a good start on getting my desk tidied back up after weeks of being a disaster area. And let me tell you — it is grand to be able to move my arm without obstruction, ha ha. I’ve also combined that with getting some of the things for Saturday boxed up and moved to the side, and… Read more »

Outdoor Science

Z had the bright idea that we should check out how to get the gazebo up before the weekend, so we went outside to do science.¬† The tl;dr is that it’s not too hard to get up, and not too hard to get down. I… missed out on the second part because I completely spaced out. But at least it… Read more »

A Little Grind

      No Comments on A Little Grind

I am pleased that I have some inspiration for bracelets this evening. I’m making ones I’ve ‘already’ made, except in different colourways in patterns. Heh, I guess that one could argue that means they’re different bracelets, but I’m able to keep them in some of the broad categories I’ve made without any problems, so that’s useful for my brain. Whatever…. Read more »
