Aside ~ Fin d’un Beau Weekend

Home Sweet Home… Is where I can find all my stuff!

I don’t mind travelling but I’d rather not live out of a suitcase. A post about the events of the weekend is posted on the Artisan blog.

So, I’ve come home to over 600 emails between the two blogs and so… I’m wimping out folks. Gonna clear all but the direct messages and start fresh. If y’all weren’t so damn productive I wouldn’t have to raise the white flag!

My weekend went exceptionally well personally and professionally and I hope all is well in your parts of the world.

Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl

But you’ll never get the 80’s out of the girl! 😉

Goth-Stonians Legwarmers have gone live on Ravelry!

Please download and get creative – it’s free for the remaining month of August – a little kick-start to the beginning of the knitting season.

Fast, fun, affordable. One skein of Cascade 220 or any worsted, some imagination and these become totally unique.

Huge loves to my amazingly beautiful and talented daughter for supplying photos for me Hell no! You wouldn’t catch me on heels that high anymore – unless a palanquin and two studly dudes come with purchase!

Nuh Uh ~ No

No. I don’t want to write today
I don’t! Not writing, not writing
You cannot make me write
WordPress, Muse… Shhhh!

~ Much later in the day ~

I want to make things in 3D
Feel the medium flow through my hands
Writing is so ephemeral
Oh, I’m thinking, I’m thinking…
Better put that on a page
And then what?
So the world knows that I’m
Lonely, mad, happy, sad, horny, crazy
I want to create something I can touch
My hands are so restless
The keyboard can never recreate
This tactile heaven, this need to make

Just as the Lady of Shallot, spinning and dreaming
The flow of silk through my fingers soothes my soul
Weaving fluid fantasies, plying satin cords to bind
To wrap you in deepest blue spun satin is my goal

And now Muse, what was that you whispered…?
