I went to North Carolina for the weekend and when I came back it was winter again.
These pictures, however, were taken in 2010. Heh.
So bittersweet to find Lauren in these negatives. Sniff. After I was just texting her yesterday asking when I would be able to see her and Peto!!
More pretty winter for ya.
The steam rolling off Lake Michigan was epic.
I love the frozen winter harbor.
I put up a vid of the lake if you're interested.
Winter, yer so pretty.
I love how the branches up top drop out and it's like the tree is sending a lasso out into the sky.
Year of making...almost nothing.
Yup, I only finished 8 things in 2013. (With a few random quilt blocks thrown in here and there, not represented here since they didn't actually amount to a THING.)
One quilt which was done in JANUARY so basically a year ago, two cowls, one skirt, one T shirt of questionable fit, and three dresses, one of questionable fit. Truly sad.
1. NewBee Green quilt is done!!!, 2. Second finish for 2013! Crappy pictures of another finished cowl, 3. Chunktastic Cowl #4, 4. New skirt Thursday., 5. Butterfly Staple Dress, 6. Washi dress finished FINALLY., 7. Fairly wearable Scout Muslin #2 (knit version), 8. Staple dress #2
SIGH. You know, when you finish a LOT of stuff people always ask you where you find the time. Well, you just do. It's here and there and everywhere and honestly yes I had a busy year and yes I had a lot of stress and I taught summer school so I basically had 10 days off total all summer long but STILL... There were plenty of times when I was doing nothing, for hours. Plenty of times I could have been doing stuff.
Oh well. I guess I was just too tired. Hoping for better in 2014.
I started a scarfy thing for a friend:
I made one tiny sweater for Truly's stuffed rabbit and I have another underway:
And I really really REALLY need to get back to work on this since it's from a swap that ended probably over a year ago!! I SUCK.
And I'm hoping to make it through a few quilts, maybe these to start?
We'll see. I pretty much never end up working on the thing I intend to be working on, so...
Peace Out, 2013.
This was really a quote about Christmas, but it actually applies to all of life.
The choice is ours to make, how we live into the possibilities
Here's to better choices in 2014. Bring it on, possibility.
RIP Bella Schmella Schmoo.
My friend Carrie's dog Bella died yesterday and I'm oh so so so very sad about this, I couldn't even express to you how much. I loved her very dearly.
She was super camera shy as you may have been able to tell but I'm so glad I took her picture anyway.
I'll miss you sweet sweet girl.
