An Unconventional Life

Let's catch up, shall we? I signed up the littlest for the ATC Kids Swap, and she's having a good time with it. This swap was SO my speed. The kid draws all the time and on everything. I even let her use my good pencil crayons. This thrilled her beyond words.
And let's just say I saw some of my own yellow this week. This here's my pile of thrifted sheets and fabric ready for sewing projects. I'm going to sew something. Honest. I just need to give myself a good kick in the butt downstairs. I keep blaming my hesitation on the lack of light and tablespace. B just reminded me we have pie. Must stop everything and eat.

It's family movie night again, and we have coconut cream pie, pringles, ginger ale, and tea. My tummy just did a little flip flop there. First I will grab my 'movie knitting'. This here's my second cowl as such. I forgot to blog and 'ravelry' this little project the first time. It was given away as a last-minute Christmas present. It's just a ball of Lion Brand Quick and Jiffy chunky wool and a pair of 9mm straights - cast on 25 stitches and garter the heck out of it. Then seam it up off centre, and voila!

If my photos look clearer today, it's 'cause J is making me use his re-chargeable batteries, and they last all of about five minutes, and recharging is taking hours!! As luck would have it, I remembered that I brought home the new work camera for the annual fundraising event tomorrow, and I am in charge of picture-taking. So I practised taking pictures like any excellent employee. I think I am getting the hang of it. :)

Happy weekend, friends!

I always love B's drawings! I am curious to know what you are planing with the sheets? I have a ton of old ones that I could muster something out of myself. PJ bottoms perhaps?

I think you are getting the hang of it. I love your pictures, always. And Beah's. The one of the bird family (birds!) is precious.
