Working Dinner

      No Comments on Working Dinner

Today has been… a day. It started with waking up to find out I’d slept through Smalls being sick all night. She ended up having to stay home, and has to again tomorrow per school rules. She’s in good spirits though, and trying to eat, so she’ll probably be fine for Wednesday. ((and being sick meant more toast for her,… Read more »

Today, I constructed a lightbox prototype. It is exceptionally crappy and dubious, but I’m pleased with having it for experimenting. I even did a listing based on some photos I took… though admittedly, I did have to clean them up bit before using them. Still, it’s a step in the right direction, and I think that it will put is… Read more »

Boo You Lamp

In some ways, our little jaunt to get lightbox objects was successful. Z picked out a nice sheet of posterboard, and one of the women who worked at Hobbycrack was able to locate the particular craft knife he wanted to buy (the retractable kind; they were hiding somewhere). We were less successful when we checked out the home store next… Read more »

Uh, Stuff

So like, all I wanted today was a huge pile of work to keep me distracted… so of course, there wasn’t. As you might’ve guessed based on last night’s post, my grandfather passed last night. I’m not dwelling on it or anything, but I -am- sad, and I -did- want something to keep my brain busy. The one upshot of… Read more »

I somehow managed to completely forget to blog last night… oh well. I’m sort of glad because it tells my brain that breaking perfect streaks isn’t going to break the world. I’ve got so much weird anxiety about that, which, I know. *doinks brain and chuckles* It’s silly. I’m mildly annoyed at Facebook right now. I decided I was going… Read more »

The Colours, Duke!

I just got get started in on my next cake of wool for blanket squares, woo hoo. I decided to go for the rainbow because it will be more fun to work, and because it was the one that was easiest to get to. I don’t know how many I will or won’t get done today, but at least I’ve… Read more »

The Worst Part of Knitting…

      No Comments on The Worst Part of Knitting…

… is picking up stitches. I pulled my knitting out of my bag for the first time since I was out Wednesday, and finished the last few rows on the second sleeve. Which means now I am doing math and picking up stitches, which is… tedious. To say the least. Still, at least it’s nearing completion! I don’t think that… Read more »

Faceless

I had three bits of mail this morning, to my amusement. I’m not usually the one getting the mail, so getting all of it was whee. Z was mildly concerned when the postwoman showed up though, because she had something like five little packages, and he was worried they were all for me. No love, I’m doing my best to… Read more »

Delightful Disaster

I have… stuff… everywhere. In some ways, it’s both better and worse now that I have the tray in situ. It doesn’t quite fit right anywhere, so I’ve got it balanced atop something to make it more stable in the space I’ve assigned it. I’m kind of amazed how many little bags it has in it. I know my shop… Read more »

Moarrr

Yes, I had moar beads arrive today! These were all mainly on the small size, but I’ve already found some inspiration. I made two sets of crochet markers, and am trimming off the matching two sets of knit markers. I’m hoping I can come up with a name sooner rather than later so I can get them posted to my… Read more »
