Egads, that kitty is a hot mess. Here is Lou waiting for her to finish eating so he can get the scraps (even though his doggie bowl is full):

Two pets, fabric, yarn and needles of all sorts all over the house, an addiction to CSI ... I'm turning into the woman I used to make fun of.

The hives are back. I think it must be stress. Here are some crafty points of inspiration from Basic French:

These are dishtowels, but the patterns would lend themselves to a cute apron or tiny crib quilt, too.

The bears - that chocolate one in the sky blue striped tee is sweeter than a cake filled pie. Fall is coming, and it will be time to pull out the needles soon!

Design Within What?


From the natty folks at Design Within Reach:This is called the "utility blanket". It is 100% cotton. It costs $300. It is not filled with gold leaf. As near as I can tell, it has not been blessed by the pope. I'm also fairly certain that it is not bulletproof. All that utility for only $300. I'm going to sew my ass off when I get home tonight.

I want I want I want

I want to do a _____ - a-long, or a swap or a trade. I need to figure out how to start one up myself. Back-Tack was great, too bad I didn't learn about it until it was over. Modern Quilt-A-Long sounds like fun, but my attempts to sign up have failed at every turn. Maybe they're full, too. Boo.

In other news, I spent 2 hours looking all over the internet for this lady who makes pincushions out of felt. I don't know why, but I really feel like I need to buy one of the pincushions she makes except I can't find her name. I must be feeling particularly unfulfilled today.
