These last 2 days in Ohio have been beautiful! Almost a little to beautiful. I hate when it's time to start shaving the legs, and it felt like it was getting to that time. Crap, buy me some razors.
I should be working, but I've been tripping all over this city. I have a very busy month ahead of me. Right now I have 2 free days in May, but those will be eaten up any day now. Busy for me means lots of driving. This month it's lots of 6 a.m. driving. So it's me & the truckers, my peeps. Yesterday after a couple of hectic games of phone tag, I decided today was going to be full of Me shopping. And since I'm getting my newly repaired sewing machine back any second, I thought I'd let Ms. Butler entertain my pocket book.
I've got a new "quilt" idea dancing around my head. I put "quilt" in quotes, because I don't feel I have the right to call it Quilting. I know, the act of piecing 3 fabrics together is quilting. But I feel funny & foolish when I'm in the shop. The owner is saying phrases that I've never heard, and she's looking at me like I should. While I'm waiting for her to cut the fabric, I imagine the conversation she's having in her head:
She doesn't know what a Fussy Cut is and she's buying designer fabric! Poo-Paah, indeed.
I'll just imagine her in a knitting store hearing things like SSK and DPN. Ahh the look of confusion on her smug little face. Ok, I'm done, enough of my insecurities. I'll wash these beauties up & start thinking about some inexpensive fabric for it to mingle with.
Here's another thing I'm insanely proud of, today I only took one plastic bag from a store! And I shopped at 6 different places. I know! Amazing, right? OK, perhaps this is bordering on the bad side of insanity (is there a good side?). I'm so tired of plastic bags in our house. Really I'm not getting all Leo on you, but I'm sick of the piles and piles of the stuff. So I returned a bunch to Whole Foods and just stuffed other purchases in my large purse. Please, pat me on the back Mr. Gore.
Off to make some eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Who knew baking soda & white vinegar would fix everything? I'm pretty positive that it could clean up Ms. Spears career.
PS. I'm getting my Sock Pal's yarn tomorrow. I think that I'm going to take it with me during the next couple months. Yep, I'm ripping off Yarn Harlot. So I'll post a separate category for Lola's Sock Adventure. Maybe my sock pal would like to see the trouble that her gift got into while hanging with Lola's Crew.
PPS. Here's a shot of some Lizard Ridge squares. After reading that post, you should get some sort of reward. 2 more squares and then seaming. I may have enough yarn to squeak out one tonight. Pup tried to roll on them outside. I almost had to think of a story to tell Gus why Pup wasn't with us anymore.
