Make-Up Monday

Ellie came tearing into the house in full high-pitched wail. You know, the kind where you can't catch your breath because the owie hurts so bad. Her sister came running in after her so I asked what happened.

A rock fell on her head.

Fell on her head?

Well, I was sort of looking at it and it sort of dropped on her.

By now a nice sized goose egg was forming smack dab in the middle of Ellie's forehead. I tell ya, you gotta look out for rocks. Rocks is dangerous. Thank goodness for Dora bandaids, they make everything better. (She now has a bruise the size of a quarter).

Remember that trip to the mountains I took? The one with friends? They all worked on their quilting projects, but since I'm on a break with quilting I took some knitting instead.

These are some fun slouchy socks that I'm trying to figure out as I go.

Cute alert: an owl hat for my niece

Perfect to go with an owl dress

Oh look, a sweater I meant to finish making up for a baby boy LAST fall. Oops. Too bad there are no little baby boys on the way.

And my mom's Christmas (yes, last Christmas - but now her birthday) scarf is finished.

It's my first experience making lace. Was fun. What are you making up these days?

I had no idea you were such a talented knitter!

And I generally look up a lot to make sure rocks don't hit me in the face.

Good on you for all your craftiness!

I am making nothing! Don't have a crafty bone in my body. But I like to admire everyone else's work

Those rocks can be so slippery and willful.

I love all your projects. The owl hat and sweater are just fabulous.

Hmm, to be making something I'd have to get off the computer and go into my sewing room. I've been thinking about doing that. Maybe I will.

The only thing I've been making up are excuses as to why my house is a disaster, why I haven't been cooking dinner and the reasons I'm not as tight and toned as I used to be.... You on the other hand are incredibly productive. You seem to really have it all and together even. You're my hero.... I want to be like you when I grow up.

Oh that no taking a breath kind of cry just stops my heart!

And wow your work is gorgeous! I'm especially in love with that scarf. I crochet rather than knit but now I'm thinking I need to give knitting a try.

Right now I'm working on a cross-stitch of a wizard and a dragon, lest we ever have a boy child. Hey, doesn't hurt to be prepared.
