kitchen haiku

I started another project that I called Kitchen Haiku. I was trying to think up and idea to keep myself interested in doing the dishes. I really don't like doing the dishes. I was writing down haiku's to go with some photographs- I figured if i could make a photo project out of it maybe I would enjoy it a little bit more. Not much success yet but I do like how the pictures have come out. Working in black and white is a good change. I will probably start posting the pictures here every once in a while.

rug wip and a fleet

Ahh it's nice to be here again. We all have been busy doing our normal life things, like junk mail fleets. Eliot and I came home today and got right into our pj's and are having a good lounge. He even helped me with my slippers - what a guy.

I am just about done with the rug. I decided to leave it a little smaller than my original plan of 4'X5' but it will be about 3' across when it is totally assembled. This is about 40 rounds. I am going to start tying off the loose ends tonight and maybe even start sewing the rounds together!

It will be a little less wonky shaped when it is done. It will be more hexagonal with some little filled in spots. I already have a lot of ideas for my next one!

Happy Valentine's Day

It has been a busy week! Sorry for the lack of posting. When work gets busy it pretty much drains my evening energy. February always is a tired month for me too. But, hopefully, we have passed the apex of winter and will be slowly working our way towards spring. We have had no snow for several weeks while the rest of the country is getting slammed. It's cold but sunny.

Eliot and I went to the beach yesterday and wandered around on mudflats. we actually found a live clam and nearly froze my fingers trying to get it out of the mud to show him. An unexpected bonus of the trip was finding some great driftwood for the fish tank. I only wish I had a saw with me! And we have some fish now! Granted, they are cycling fish, so I hope they make it through these next few weeks - but it is nice to see them swimming around.

I'll try to post more this week...I am working on a tutorial for the rug, too.
