Here is some yarn I spun this morning. I don’t have anything exciting to talk about today except my glasses came in! I ordered the frames online, so now they just need to be fitted with lenses and I can start seeing again. My old glasses broke a few months ago and I didn’t want to get a new pair until I could find a pair I really liked. Not good considering I am legally suppose to wear my glasses while I drive. The thing that has bothered me the most is trying to watch a sub-titled movie. I couldn’t sit on the couch, I would have to get close and lay on the floor (we have hardwood floors so its not very comfortable)
I added some new yarn to the shop today. I have been spinning a little more then normally. I like switching around between sewing/spinning/painting etc. I am in awe of people who just focus on one set thing. I could never do that.
I also added two more toaster purses to the shop, and will be adding two more on Monday. Today the kids are off school for a teacher in-service day. So we have library plans, and then hopefully to the big spinning shop so I can pick up some more wool. I ordered 5,000 new business cards yesterday…I have been out of cards for so long! I really wanted to get the rounded corners, but that would have been an extra $100, and I just could not justify that.
I hope to check out the book Housekeeping
after reading Alicia’s
lovely entry about it. When she said “ For so long I’d felt like Housekeeping was my book, somehow — a secret I shared only with those I trusted completely, and I would offer it up to them two-handed, with an earnest, twitching hopefulness: Love this (and me), please.
” I was so stunned, because this is precisly how I feel about my most favorite books! Like little secrets that I never wanted to share, except of course with someone most special. :) Such a beauitful entry!
While on the subject of books a couple of friends of mine have created book groups online. One on livejournal ReadWriteRecite
and one on Myspace Reading Repartee
More plush for the one of a kind plush show..although I am not 100% happy with him. He may end up being a practice one if the next one I try comes out better. Look at that top graham cracker, all crooked! I could try and act like I did it on purpose, but that would be a big fat lie :)
My new favorite shirt. I wish you could tell from the photo, but the whole shirt is covered in numbers. Little tiny numbers. It was an ugly turtleneck (no offense to anyone who can rock the fitted cotton turtleneck, I am just not one of you) I found it at goodwill and had to buy it. Little tiny black numbers all over! I figured I would alter the collar somehow like I did to another goodwill turtleneck (that was royal blue and covered in amazing flowers!) But with the last one I used my serger and created a scoop neck sort of tank top out of it. I had the number turt hanging around for a couple of weeks, and while I really wanted to wear it..I was too lazy to alter it. So instead I cut down the front of the turtle neck and it magically turned into the nice neck you see above! Ohh Ahhh…Ok, so maybe that is very obvious to a lot of people, but I never would have thought about it, so I thought I should share :)
Tuesday night I got my “Kevin Scalzo painting” tattoo finished (Kevin/Djerba I will email you a photo very very soon!) it looks awesome, Eric did a great job! Then he took us to an amazing Japanese restaurant. Some of the best food I have eaten in a very long time. We plan to drag some friends there soon (my excuse to go back and eat more yummy stuff) The night before Eric tattooed me, Tom tattooed the back of my leg. Its a bird and roses that he drew for me. He said I am a sissy for not letting him finish it all, but its big from the back of my knee down to my ankle…so sissy-pants? I think not. I sat through the outline, and shading, then he did some of the coloring..Then I said “feel free to stop whenever you want”..haha
