Ear Candy

      No Comments on 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 »

M-O-O-N

That spells moon. And yanno, two of ’em over the sky of Skyrim, I think. I think this was while I was taking the very long trek to Riften… all the treks in this game are long the first time, ha ha. It’s been nice though, chilling out and playing. And it’s been even nicer for the fact that yes,… Read more »

Today is Mother’s Day (or Mothering Sunday) here in the United Kingdom. I got Z to take a few pictures of me and the girls being sweet/goofy/very us, such as this one at home. We’re currently at his parent’s house hanging out and eating. The girls have sung karaoke at us, cards were exchanged, and affirmations of affection were passed… Read more »

A Little Company

Yup, you probably guessed it — Littler ended up staying home today. She took it easy, and made sure to get lots and lots of cuddles. She even talked me into reading a book to her. I tend to avoid reading children’s books out loud because they dry my throat out, but this was rhyming enough that it didn’t do… Read more »

Cuffs and Collars

Or, more accurately, the first seven inches or so of the first sleeve for the jumper. I’m quite glad that I made a point to order the smaller circular, as I feel I am making better progress because of it. I need to make myself work on it a bit more assiduously, but that shouldn’t be too hard with mild… Read more »

Do Not Open ‘Til Christmas

Well, okay, I guess I have to peel myself out of my blanket sooner than that, but I don’t wanna. The week is over, the workday is over, and I just want to veg. I did thank the girls for a mainly good week; I’m really proud of both of them for independently spearheading crafting projects. Even if it was… Read more »

He Knows Me Well

I was pleasantly surprised this morning to find not only my requisite card, but a small parcel. It was the pictured colouring book, and upon flipping through it, it’s a really nice quality one! I’m going to have to see if the girls will let me borrow their markers, as I don’t think crayons will cut it, and I don’t… Read more »

Something Different

Z had spotted a jar of black bean sauce and decided to try and make us a nice stir-fry with it. It was alright, I guess. Which is to say, I inhaled it while trying to decide if I liked it or not. If he made it again, I would eat it. Is it better than a takeaway? Probably not,… Read more »

In Rainbows

      No Comments on In Rainbows

When I was in the Air Force, I put aside my love of fun socks — because it was easier to just keep the bog standard ones that were acceptable for uniform. But after a few Christmasses here, I developed a healthy stockpile of fun, mainly stripy socks. I mainly keep the old ones around to keep my arms warm,… Read more »

Twinkle Twinkle

To my annoyance, I cannot currently find many of the stitch markers that I’ve made. I know that several of them broke because the gauge of the wire I was using was too fine, but I plan on experimenting with that in the near future. And, in general, just to make a few more markers. I like making them, so… Read more »
