This has been one of those weeks where things happen - not for the best. Yesterday as I was driving to work, my rear view mirror fell down. Dan says it will be easy to fix but what a pain it is driving without it!
Of course, I realize that none of my little aggravations are as bad as the things that happen to Claire in the Morganville vampire series books - I just finished the first one yesterday and was able to put some of the others on reserve at the library. If you liked Twilight, you will probably like these books by Rachel Caine.
I have been playing with some new ideas this past week - with fabric and lace. A while back Cassie Box (one of the ScrapGals) made a bracelet from a cuff she had cut from a shirt. I liked the idea so I cut the cuffs off of an old white shirt that I had and added frayed fabrics, laces, and Gecko Galz vintage buttons. I love how it feels on my wrist and am inspired to make some more - I started on a black sort of Goth-y one and have ideas for one in shades of pink. I plan to put them in my etsy shop - got any colors you would like?
I have also been knitting quite a bit - 2 projects that must be completed by the end of July - one for vacation and one for a contest. My fingers will be flying. Below is a pic of a scarf that I am knitting that looks like a leaf - it's from a pattern by Jane Thornley, my knitting idol. I would so love to go on one of her knitting trips, like to Santa Fe or Tuscany (she calls that trip Knitaly - sigh...................).
Hope your day and week is going well, and thanks so much for visiting my blog - no scrapping to post today - not that I haven't been - it's just that I can't post them yet but soon................
