I bought the I-cord maker that Prudence Mapstone recommended in her workshop. Our new Joann’s had one–and only one, so I jumped at it. I’ve made yards and yards while catching up on my TV series, and I have no idea what I will do with it. Don’t you like the lovely picture?
Oops. @&?!:@!!! That’s what I said as my camera hit the floor lens first when I was taking a picture of it. Now the camera says “Lens error” if you try to take a picture.
Hence the dilemma. Try to get it fixed or buy a new one? I hope turtlegirl76 is reading this; she will be a good source of info. Anyone else have a digital that you love?
The old one was heavy, used batteries which was a plus when in another country, but I don’t plan on going anywhere soon, and had a very scratched up screen because I didn’t take care of it as I should have. Sounds like I want a new one, doesn’t it?
The kitchen is finished and we still love it. I am stymied at hanging the pictures. Lots of wall and lots of pictures equal lots of decisions. Then the hanging will require detailed measuring and I am dreading it. Hope I get them up by 2013.
I am knitting. Not secret this time. I’m working on the brioche project for Kate and a pair of socks for me. These socks have been a long time coming. I’m using turtlegirl76’s Breaking Hearts pattern and the yarn MissBabs dyed in honor of the first Sock Summit. Both are fabulous.
The yarn, which you can’t see here, has 3-4″ color repeats which the pattern blends beautifully. The twisted cuff is fun and feminine, and the cuff pattern is easy, but interesting enough not to let me get bored. That is very important! When I get bored, I start to diddle with the pattern and that isn’t always a good thing.
I’m also sewing. I made a zipper bag yesterday, sort of a travel bag, about 8×10″. I quilted it, and couched some threads on it, added some beads. It is too messy to give away, but It resulted in a discovery. Aha!
You need to do all your decorating before attaching the lining if you want a really professional look. I spent some time painting and stamping a piece of batik and really like the totally unplanned effect. Sorry no picture.
Congratulations to my Aussie friends, Mark Webber won the Brazilian Grand Prix to end the Formula 1 season.
To those interested in Jan Smiley’s Fiber Frolic–Jan called yesterday and is making some interesting plans for us. Nothing definite yet, but we should all know something soon.
