Show and Tell


Today has been a great day for photo ops! Starting right off with this gorgeous card (above) that I received today from my wonderful friend Laela. Isn't she talented? I wish you could see it in person, because it's even prettier than it looks on your computer screen.


Here is a card *I* made today. It is going off to the inchie swap hostess, Bev. I thought it would be fun, and kind of bizarre, to try to recreate my inchie in a normal sized card. Obviously, I used different flower and butterfly stamps so it would be proportional. The scan makes two of the flowers look purple; in real life, they are magenta. I think from now on I may try photographing cards instead of scanning them...


Then there's this.


And this! The other day, I found a note to myself from the day I originally started stitching the Four Seasons Bunnies. That was 14 February 2003! Still, that's fairly recently, compared to when I started the project I am going to work on next. But that's a story for another day. Because, you see, I also want to show you...


These! Yes, my Waffle Weave socks are finished at long last! And you know I've already started a new pair of socks, this time for my first-born niece. (I started to type "oldest" but it just didn't sound right! Maybe "eldest"? I think I'll stick with "first-born", otherwise I'll be here dithering all night. Hey. Libra, remember?).

I also spent several thrilling hours doing laundry, baking muffins (we seem to be stuck in the bran muffin rut, but if my family is happy, why should I mind?), and mucking about with milk cartons and soap boxes. Will there ever be photos and explanations of the strange and inexplicable goings on in my crafting room?

One can only hope.

You have been a busy girl! I am envious at how much you are able to accomplish. The four season bunnies are so very cute! Makes one want to dance!

Hey! Blogger must have fixed the glitch. I can comment today!

The socks and cards are gorgeous! My card sits near my computer and I smile very time I see it!

I envy your ability to not be OCD about different crafts. I'm an all or nothing gal and have to work very hard to even let housework take a priority once and awhile!
