just my yarn

...Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things...

i don't aspire to be her and lord knows i think the most comments i ever got was 11 (do i detect a note of blogger envy within myself?) but i have to say the outfit that i knit for the barbster for the doll round robin fits! and it looks pretty um, er~ pretty. left some waste yarn hanging for my fellow robins to embellish or cut off! i do think that it is odd that barbie is better dressed than her dresser...

i love june and may!

i pretty much like what i make but it's not all that often that my own art makes my heart go pitter pat-today i got pretty excited with june and may! love these girlfriends. it's always great to have a good canvas, great supplies and a quiet house.

this is what makes my heart sing.

came home from a little shopping and meeting up with gf eren to find bf ted sleeping away. love ya turdy.
ps> ted has a new little relative- soooooo cute!

re: passover

now that this holiday is drawing to a close, i thought i would share with you a great photo i received from a friend of mine at the crown center as well as evidence that this is a decidedly white food holiday. btw, the balls (!) as my grandmother naively used to call them, came out beautifully- fluffy and light. yum. happy pesach!

power outage

so i got home from from work with visions of crafting the nite away and right in the middle of mike bush yakking about something or another the power went out. so, i got on the cell phone horn called ameren ue only to find that 11,000 of us lucky dogs were in the dark. i quickly finished these up by the last remaining daylight, found a flashlight and took a lovely nap on the couch...it always amazes me how much i take for granted at times like this.

oh what fun it is to knit...

and hang out and drink coffee and yak. Heidi's pink sweater, Lesley's colorful beanbag and my vintage-y dish cloth.

2 for $5

while we've all been busy with our birdies and nests and easter-y stuff, good old- old navy has made the true announcement of spring- racks and racks of flip flops! this year they have metallic colors. you all know that i am on the cutting edge of fashion with my 10 year old flax pants (or as my kids call them-big fat momma pants) and this year's uniform- citiknits gauchos from qvc. i saw immediately that i could add a touch of bronze to my spring/summer wardrobe without spending the $128 on the woven fossil tote at dillards...and notice the bonus crown on the heel. pure heaven.

my good deed

so here is what i do to make the world a better place- i give blood regularly. i actually have a rare type and so i go the minute they call. today is the day. it is a simple thing- takes about 15 minutes and i know that i am directly helping someone in need. as martha would say- "it's a good thing." just putting it out there for your consideration.
