I had part of a post written about how fast time goes by. Just went back to it and it was nearly 2 weeks ago! Point proved!
Made it through another month - whew! M had a snow day recently, so we did some couch surfing and watched 2 episodes of Freaks and Geeks on Netflix. I had never seen it but she is recently obsessed. It's cute and I can't believe how many future stars were in it. It also perfectly captures the awkward fashions of the early eighties. Pre-Flashdance, pre-Madonna, we were still rocking the poly-blends pretty hard. I had blocked it out, but that show brings it all back.
I have been in a very stitchy mood. I whipped up a cross-stitch for L but I can't show you because I am lame and forgot to take a picture before I mailed it. It came from a really great Etsy shop I discovered - Wee Little Stitches. Gloriously geeky patterns for the uber-nerd. I chose the Buffy the Vampire Slayer for L because that used to be her favorite show.
Of course, M was not going to abide her sister being the only one getting a project, so I had to start another right away. I chose the Harry/Ron/Hermione trio and it stitched up fast!
Have to try to find a square frame I can put it in.
I also made a cute pincushion using a pattern I found on...wait for it...PINTEREST!! Yep, still obsessed.
It really was pretty easy - cutting out the template and the six pie wedges took the longest. You wait to cut the bottom circle until the top is done so you can match them exactly.
The pattern is here if anybody wants to give it a try. I'm going to make my next one fancier with some embroidery. I think I will also stuff it more.
Lest you think I've given up knitting altogether, here is a little peek at a recent FO.
Not a fab photo, the light had gone. I will get a better photo of the whole thing soon. It has hand spun!!
Ok, I will leave you with a random thought: why not have plastic lobster bibs in restaurants that serve chips and salsa? Would make my life easier, and my Tide pen consumption would plummet!
