A project for da boy

Dear Daughter got a fairy, Dear Son got a DSi Cozy.

These are the perks of having a knitty momma.

And here she is…(plus a bonus joke)

Miss Fairy Belle

I kinda want to keep her for myself.


Anyway, the birds have been showing up lately.  Must be the big bag of birdseed I recently bought.

And the tomatoes have been growing like mad. ¬†There hasn’t even been any sun for days upon days. Just rain.

My ds told me a funny joke today. ¬†I think he really made it up. ¬†Really. ¬†Because he’s brilliant. ¬†I also got his report card in the mail today. ¬†Let me just say, he doesn’t get it from me. ¬†:):) Anyway, here’s the joke:

Why did the fish cross the ocean?

To get to the other tide.

funny, right?

ambitious knitting project

I’m in the throws of a knitting project. ¬†It’s a fairy doll for my wee little daughter. ¬†It’s very tedious.

Work in progress:

Spring Boutique is finished.

I sold 5 items and one custom order. ¬†Pretty good for a small affair? ¬†I think so. ¬†Here’s a picture of my booth:

I gave 30% to charity.

Then, I bought these two items from the other sellers there:

a rug and a collage.

I’m happy.

Now, time for gardening!!!!

The Spring Boutique is this weekend

Sorry for the delay in posts. I have been busy knitting and knitting, so much so that my knitting peeps had a bit of intervention with me. You see, my hands have been going numb at night. They said it’s unnatural the amount of knitting I’ve been doing. ¬†But I want my inventory to be quite sufficient enough at the show. ¬†I want to be able to donate some cashage to good causes and also take a bit home for myself. ¬†After that, I will take a small break from knitting, or go a bit more slowly. ¬†I’ve been thinking about a cabled handbag for weeks now. ¬†I might just do a few rows a day or week, whatever I fancy. ¬†And whatever doesn’t sell at the show will be put in the shop.

Anyways, besides Knitting I’ve also been going to birthday parties.

For my niece, who turned 4.

and a girlfriend, who turned 30.

I went to an award ceremony for my ds, who won two trophies and a scholarship for bowling. (He’s on the right and his buddy is on the left)

Well, lovelies, I’ll be writing again after the show to tell you how it went…

Till then, xxoo, momma

busy working on Spring Boutique.

This is bananas.

Does anyone else think it’s ironic that I took ‘you’re writing sucks’ as ‘write more often?’ ¬†Ironically, I think of two things whenever I say ironic, which isn’t very often because of these things: 1. that song by Alanis Morissete and 2. that scene in Reality Bites.

I can just sense my mom reading this right now. ¬†She’s saying, “move on dot org.”

Anyway, I had an overdue book. ¬†Had. ¬†I don’t have it anymore, because I brought it back to the library, because they sent a notice in the mail, because it was really, really late, because I really loved it and I think I want to buy it. ¬†Makes no sense, right? ¬†I’ve already paid for a portion of it. ¬†Let’s see, about 14 days overdue at 25 cents a day equals 3.50. ¬†The book is 11.20, new. ¬†If I buy it, it will have cost me 14.70.

I can sense my mom reading this, saying, ‘why do you do this to yourself?’

Well, mom, move on dot org. ūüėÄ ¬†I see it as donating to the great socialist cause of the library system. ¬†I mean, really, without all of my late fees, could the library system survive? ¬†Um, I think not.

Anyway, when I went to drop it off at the drop box at the library – no way was I going in – I pulled in behind a big ol SUV. ¬†The drop box is approximately 20 feet or less from where you stop your car. ¬†(when are you gonna install some drive thrus, people? ¬†This is exactly where I want my money to go. (kidding.)) ¬†The SUV lady turned on her car alarm! ¬†This just floored me. ¬†Who’d she think was gonna steal her car? ¬†Me? Ha.

You want to know what the infamous book is, don’t you?

Knitting for Good!: A Guide to Creating Personal, Social, and Political Change Stitch by Stitch.

Ahem, honey, are you reading this? ūüôā

Well, back to laundry. ¬†I’m about to post a pic of my laundry piles. ¬†PILES!!! ¬†Good Lord. ¬†I’m either really crackers for showing you this picture or for having this much laundry to do, or both! ¬†Either way, I’m crackers. ¬†Note: I used my handy dandy thesaurus for ‘crazy’ and this was one of the words. ¬†I never thought of using cracker as ‘one that cracks.’ ¬†FYI, you can also say ‘bananas’.

(it’s in black and white, because everything looks better in black and white, wouldn’t you say?)
