Progress on a Sunday?

As someone I love dearly said…

Who are you and where’s that pink hair wearin’ nightclub crawling tattooed city girl we used to know?

Between fishing, cleaning and getting the love shack set up, there has been some fiber progress made.

Icarus increased by two rows, the freezing farmgirl fisher mitts have had a couple of rounds added and I’ve worked on a long forgotten cross stitch project.  They’ve decided to do some “strength training” on ye ole floppy, so everything has been kind of slow going.

Even the play room is in disarray.  Serious disarray.  (I had to take that picture again since someone’s birthday presents were showing in the first couple I took.)  The wall behind me is going to be all shelving and I’m looking for a comfy, cozy chair to curl up in.  I’m thinking this since I plan to have two big leather chairs and ottomans by the fireplace.

No, I don’t have a problem with wips… why do you ask?

I’ve seen a lot of Happy 4th Wishes and prayers posted around the web today and it has inspired me to add my own little prayer: Please God, let the idiots pass out early.

Happy Friday y’all!

Simple Things

“A little simplification would be the first step toward rational living, I think.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Nice sentiment, but who ever said I was rational?  One late night and about an hour today enabled this:


One MP2008 project done. WOO!

NaSpiMoMo news – two more hankies completed while at the coffee shop today.  I only got a few strange looks. 

Growth is good. ::: insert lots of stuff not suitable for blog:::  Isn’t that awesome?  It was a great week.

Blog Help

I understand that some may not be able to see my pictures.  Can you let me know if you can see this one?  Close-up trellis

If not, can you see anything if you click on it?  What browser are you using? Is it something only WP users can see…etc, etc, etc.

I’ve used a program to host them on my website and I can see them fine.  The grand wizard of making blogs said that she has issues with others seeing what she hosts on her site…so this could be a wp issue or a host issue.

Due to a minor set back, there has been no knitting or looming…although I did fall asleep holding the Noro/Malabrigo scarf the other night.  I have been cross stitching (since I don’t have use the floppy paw) and will have some pictures tomorrow.  It’s weird how I actually yearn to feel the fiber flowing through my hands.  I’ve been reading knitting books and mags – actually reading the patterns…imagining the stitches.
