"Bruiser" ,the cat, running across the grass. He's one of the homeless cats that "lives" here in the apartment complex. From what my next door neighbor says, he's been here at least 10 "human" years :) :)
Hi everyone.....I'm BACK. Oh my goodness, I've missed blogging. Today was payday, so I bought myself a new flashdrive to store photos :) :) I deleted Picasa off of my computer, so uploading photos is much slower. Hmm...maybe I should rethink Picasa? Not sure yet...anyway, here is the Mystery Dishcloth Knit-Along from "Rachel's Knitting Corner" Click here to pay her a visit. She always has a new project every month. One of my blogger friend's follows her site...and I happened to see the blog button....hmm...knitting and mystery..equals a really good time :) :) :) So this one is special for October.
The lighting was a bit off for some reason. I did have to "lighten" up some of the photos a little bit. Here is everything all at once, so you get an idea of the progression. Everyday you get only SIX rows to knit...agonizing but so exciting at the same time...because you have to WAIT till the next day for more instructions.
Day 1 - October 18th, 2010 (Monday)
Day 2 - October 19th, 2010 (Tuesday)
Day 3 - October 20th, 2010 (Wednesday)
Day 4 - October 21, 2010 (Thursday)
Day 5 - October 22, 2010 (Friday)
On this day I couldn't find my row counter. So I grabbed an envelope off my dad's desk..an envelope from a bank statement. He didn't mind that I used a piece of unwanted mail for something "useful". ..so envelope and pen in hand, I simply wrote down the rows as I finished them...a bit time intensive, but necessary for keeping track of which row I'm on.
Day 6 - October 23, 2010 (Saturday)
Day 7 - October 24, 2010 (Sunday)
Day 8 - October 25, 2010 (Monday)
I should have chosen a slightly darker yarn. The message is a little hard to see...however if you look hard enough it says "UR BOOTFL"..YOUR BEAUTIFUL :) :)
It's really nice to be back. I've missed three weeks of my photo challenge. So some of the photos I managed to save on a disk, others no...so I'll have to come up with something. I'll be posting those this weekend sometime...What have you been up to this past week? God is really teaching me some patience...apparently I have "zero" when it comes to my computer :) Then again, God is giving me strength at work, too :) :) Well, that's about it for the moment.
Oh quick note, check out this really cool new magazine I discovered awhile back. "Create and Decorate" magazine. I'll be talking about it some more later this week...I just wanted to tell you about it. It's got EVERYTHING a crafter could want...and I mean EVERYTHING. The December 2010 issue arrived in the mail a few days ago...and I've been "oohing and ahing" ever since :) :) That's the news from Oregon today. Bonus love and hugs, Heather :)
