Happy Thanksgiving

It seems that all of the plans for Thanksgiving in NYC fell apart. Intead we are home and I've cooked / am cooking a crazy amount of food... for 2.

I'm laughing about it.

Tomorrow we're up super early for day 2 of the show set up and then two days of the show. The last one of the fall seaon, hopefully we will get to Mexico in December.
I'm worn out. Hope you all are enjoying yourselves (even those not in the US)

I start to look at the older work when cleaning the studio

I have been feeling uninspired lately. I suppose that is a good thing since I have had so many little tasks to complete. I'm still working on all of that stuff.
Plus we leave Thursday a.m. for the show in NY and then home for 2 days and back for a second show over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Thanksgiving dinner will be at Cynny's apartment. We still need to figure out the menu.
Today since it is feeling cold and damp and rainy I am leaning to a traditional T-day menu. The event is a week away so it all may switch. I haven't forgotten the conversations that I've had with everyone about a non-traditional, based on the food of the Americas type of meal.

If you have arrived here via my favorite Canadian blogger, welcome. Do come back, I'm not always so boring, really.

I am still around

This weekend saw the last of the scarves go. That part of my knitting machine life has gone.

The studio remains a gigantic mess. I have basically been spending my days huddled in the corner photoshopping images for the store website.

I've been knitting hats, too. every night sitting around and knitting a few rows on a group of hats, just fun silly stuff, things I keep forgetting to photograph.

The plan is to get back to the machines after Thanksgiving. (we're busy with shows until then). But when this show mania is past The machine will be set up and the old singer will be buzzing and I'll see what gets made.

So..... thanks to anybody who still might be dropping in here.
I'm still sane (somewhat) and I'm hoping that soon posting will be regular again.

A quick post on a Monday

Most of the last week has been spent working on the new website for the "shop". I am trying to get the thing updated before all of the fall shows.

That means that I have been taking photos of stuff and working on it in photoshop, blah, blah, blah. In the middle of all of this I decided that I had better get glasses. I had my eyes examined and have a prescription for reading glasses, yes it's official no more cheap drugstore reading glasses for me I will actually have ones that are the correct magnification for each eye.

I've been looking at stuff on the studio wall

There hasn't been much added.

I've also managed to finish a hat. Unusual that I actually have a finished something but here it is....

modeled by Danny, on his last day working on stuff around the house this fall.

Somehow this doesn't sound like an accounting of all of my time since the last post. Still busy and boring.
and yes, my Sims are doing well, thank you for asking.

Somehow I thought that not being in a shop every day would give me time to do my own work and post to the blog.

It doesn't seem to be working out that way. I suppose it is all about adjustment. I've got to figure out a whole new way of being in the world now that I'm not in the shop.

In other words... I have been so, so busy.
It's the kind of busy that if I went into any detail about it you'd just click away to the next read.

Even Halloween was eventfully uneventful.

The meshing of everything into the house continues. ...

The big excitement is that our shed arrives today. That will help to clear a few things out.
I'm still trying to harness the energy in the chaos. It is a particularly wild ride..

Oh ... one other thing. I am back to an old addiction, Yes, everyone who knows me has probably been in fear of the day .....

I'm back on TheSims. Whoa, there goes a couple of hours.
