I actually have a bag for today, folks. 🙂
I picked up this bag at A-Kon this year. I went there w/ my friend Kathy and ended up spending way too much money. Sigh. But i saw this little bag and i had to have it! isnt it cute? it’s a pair of panties!!
i started a new shawl this week. I’m working on a variation of EZ’s Pi shawl. you know how in the beginning of a shawl project, the beginning is the most exciting part and you just zip right thru it?? i did that while catching up on Big Bang Theory eps that I missed. I apparently had missed 7 of them. WTF? i’m all caught up now. 🙂 but anyway, i got past the exciting part and I”m on the boring part. i’m also using some hand dyed yarn that i dyed last month and apparently, i didn’t rinse the yarn well enough b/c my hands and everything I touched are RED. ARGH!!!
But i did finish a little project this week. 🙂
Project: Chubby Gnome Amigurumi
Yarn: Baby Bee Hushabye Solid
Amount Used: less than half a skein each color
Color: denim blue, forest green brown, white, pink
Hook Size: H hook / 5.0 mm
Date Started: June 14, 2011
Date Finished: June 14, 2011
I did this on bigger yarn than the pattern called for b/c i had it laying around. so I made it bigger, but I didn’t have bigger eyes. I had the 9mm eyes as required for the doll, but since the doll was bigger, this one’s eyes look beady. blech. and i didnt embroider the mouth on bc when I tried, it looked really weird so i stopped trying. He’s Santa Gnome 🙂
Friday is my bday and I’m starting to feel a little weird about it being that time of year again. I’m actually starting to feel old now. Gone is that feeling of “man i’m so glad I’m in my 30’s”. well, don’t get me wrong. I am, in some ways, glad I’m in my 30’s. But maybe it’s b/c i’m inching toward 40. My to-do list for life isn’t even complete yet. Maybe that’s why I’m dreading this birthday. Who knows. Sigh. Alot has happened in the last 12 months and maybe that’s some of it too. it’s a weird feeling in my tummy and my brain right now.
But anyway, I found this photo on flickr and thought I would hijack it. 🙂 and personalize it for myself. haha it’s a pretty cake! too pretty to eat!! 🙂
Have a good weekend, everyone! 🙂
