Weekly Update #16


What's going on :
~Cut my hair. It is just so nice not to have all that hair.
~As I mentioned yesterday, sinus issues, but today it rained, which eased the allergies.

Finished Objects (FOs) :
~Ladders of Success Cap
~October Bakers Dozen Square

Knitting Works In Progress (WIPs) :
~Blume Hat

Crochet Works In Progress (WIPs) :
~Filet crochet trio.
1st = worsted weight acrylic
2nd = sport weight cotton - which I will later be dyeing
3rd = fingering weight wool

Sewing Works in Progress (WIPs) :
~First potholder to embroider is in progress. Picked the design, sized up and cut template pieces, and have started cutting out the fabric pieces.
~Mending the husbands lab coat for work.

Tempting Ideas :
~Purses, they seem to be my masochistic art/craft. They frustrate me to no end, but I think that is why I enjoy making them. I just can't make them very often or I'd go crazy. I've been having ideas again though and might be making something in a couple of weeks.

Favorite Thing :
~Electric Sheep Podcast. She's quite hilarious, thoughtful, and at some times will just make you cry. Most definitely a good podcast.


  1. Glad you like your new hair-do even though it is shorter than you were first wanting. Don't worry about your kids, sometimes that stuff skips a generation. It is totally luck of the draw!

  2. Shhhh... My hair is longer than it has been in a very long while, and so far, we're doing fine. Don't tempt me to go short(er) again! ;)

    Darn! I should have asked the IT guy to fix my 'puter so I have sound at work when he had it at his shop last week.

  3. Love the hair, and your sweater! It's always nice to have a change of hairstyle. I'm not loving the current cut; can't wait to go back and get it all chopped off!

    The purse project sounds like fun. I'm with you on purses; they're pretty, could be fun to make, but to carry? Really? I have one, it's ugly, practical, and fits everything I need. I think I must have failed out of girl school or something. =)
