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...

like soup and sandwich...


this work of art (!) just fell into my hands- an old photo and a piece of type from "For 2cents Plain" by Harry Golden.

part of the treasure trove.

ooh la la~

weird times six~

i've been tagged by the queen for a day- see link to the right- not sure how much of this weirdness i want to put out there for all the world to see- but here are some of the more tame weird things
1. i have very odd toes. not just ugly, but as my mother would say, "we can tell you were descended from the apes." i have a very large space in between my big toe and my second toe, i am double jointed in my big toes and can flip matchbooks off my big toes (this could be a really great stupid human trick), all of my toes bend backwards and touch the top of my foot and if that isn't gross enough, i can put my baby toe on top of my fourth toe just by thinking about it-
2. i love tote bags and shopping bags and purses. i must have 100 of them and i can't stop buying them. (actually, ditto for office supplies, crafting stuff, jewelry, books...)
3. i have been told that this is weird- but to me cottage cheese, ketchup and corn mixed together are divine.
4. i used to HATE cats. absolutely HATE-now i let my own cat sleep in my personal space in the bed while my legs are all folded and crippled up so that i don't waken the little darling from his slumber.
5. when i was in 6th or 7th grade i was a nixon girl at a republican rally. the father of one of my friends was a big republican back then and he asked molly to round up some pals to greet the candidate-i actually bumped right into tricky dick while he was coming down the aisle of the convention center.
6. i love people magazine and sappy movies. just pop in a tom hanks and meg ryan-anything with a happy ending video and i am in heaven- throw in a people mag to read while the movie is playing (no need to pay attention, since i've already seen them all about 25 times) and that would be utter heaven.
angelica, how about you?

just in case you were wondering-


the arrow is pointing to the area of my kitchen floor that squeaks- a squeak indicates that there is a weak spot in the floor- this could be where the lowlife last owners of this home tried to fix the squeak and banged multiple nails into nothing rather than the floor joist which i had an opportunity to view from the basement this morning-hence, i have no new kitchen floor because they won't install it because it may crack the tile where the floor "gives"- so this is why i never do anything to my home- we all know that it is never simple-one thing always leads to another and another and another-just in case you were wondering-

(way cool)



a few things that are mega-cool-(in my humble estimation)
this flap hat that i made for the daughter
this mug
and that everyone who put their names in the pot (see prior post) gets something from my stash (be a little patient, i'll try to make the goodie bags on thursday or friday when i'm home)

use up your stash-


so- i have this whole stash of greeting cards, a whole stash of cabinet cards and charms and yarn and you know- just like the rest of you, i have more crapola in this kave than i could possibly use in a normal lifetime. you just never know what is going to happen- make all the fab plans you care to, but we all know that anything can happen at any moment. so i'm gonna use up all my stuff- no more of this saving it for best, or tomorrow-no more copying things to save the original- i already know that if i go first, my kids are going to either ditch everything outright or have the world's greatest garage sale...so leave me a note and you'll get put in a hat for a really great prize- from my stash. and just for the heck of it- throw some paint on an original today!

please...


just when you think it couldn't get any worse...we're talkin' worse than knitting with red heart yarn in a color not found in nature-go wghs! just when you think it couldn't get any worse- worse than going out to eat and having young children at the table next to you- way worse than all of that is when you find out that adults (or at least adults chronologically) can be the most poorly behaved of all... is it the cell phone thing, the blue tooth thing, that makes us live in a boundary-less society? How can two adults sit out in the open at Border's and conduct a full-on break up- complete with the f-word? I don't get that- not to mention I could barely concentrate on my Red Heart knitting because I was sitting (as the bf rightly pointed out) 2 feet away from them. Please, if you are going to break up in public for all the world to see and hear, please at least take it outside.

answered prayer.


you know what i always say-"whining pays." who remembers me dreaming of a treeskirt for my poor stunted xmas tree a while back? well, look what miss heidi, queen for a day gifted me with on saturday- all it needs is a slit up the side and a circle cut out and we're ready to celebrate in style. also, get on over to left bank books in the central west end- they still have fab 50% off xmas and chanukah! oh yeah and dig the photo- product of my new photoshop program. major excitement.

thank you sarah~


look what came in the mail today from my one skein angel...not only is the knitted hat just perfectly beautifully knit in the softest yarn ever, but if you look on page 20 of this book, you will see that sarah designed the hat! thanks for all the goodies- it was well worth the wait.
