Leaves are Falling
My local Stitch & Bitch was such a lovely good time last night. There was lots of laughter and funny ladies and I learned still more about the blogging adventure from fellow stitch & bitchers/bloggers Jody
. I got home at 11PM and I felt very naughty indeed.
There was a time in my past when sitting in a well-lit dessert house, drinking nothing stronger than Earl Grey tea, knitting little striped earflaps would not constitute a night of wild revelry. Things have changed.
Is Autumn upon us? I keep hoping so. Autumn is my favorite season and I'm sitting here, a little overheated in my favorite brown cashmere sweater. I have a habit of wearing clothes that are not season appropriate in an attempt to will
the weather to change.
Part of what I love about this season is that my birthday falls in October. My birthday always puts me in a shopping mood and in that spirit I have pledged to 5,4,3,2...Etsy
. 3 months of buying teeny, handcrafted treasures on Etsy
for $5 or less. Such a fun challenge. Such a sweet way for mommy to find an occasional teeny, tiny treasure just for her. Happy Birthday to me.
In knitting news: I've begun another Luggy Bonnet
for the baby. This time it will fit and will feature red stars. It's going quickly and should be finished for his BIG 1st birthday.
I also have plans to make some very special cupcakes for the occasion. Picured above are some real beauties posted (and crafted?) by What the Harry
The first Luggy Bonnet went to a gorgeous little baby Colin (two months old, sweet enough to eat). His mommy - a fellow knitter and all-around fabulous babe, was delighted and so gracious (as always!)
Cool find of the day: this visual thesaurus
Also, I LOVED this post i found on Old School Acres
me to participate in this book meme diversion, I just happened upon it and thanks to my very literate husband, my results were too fabulous not to share.
Here are the rules:
1. Grab the book closest to you...NO cheating!
2. Open to page 123.
3. Scroll down to 5th sentence.
4. Post text of next 3 sentences on blog-and name of book and author Tag 3 people.
Here is what I found:You must not deny the body.
Now you shall see the Temple completed:
After much striving, after many obstacles;
For the work of creation is never without trevail;
The formed stone, the visible crucifix,
The Dressed altar, the lifting light
The visible reminder of Invisible Light.
From Selected Poems
by T.S. Eliot.
I won't tag
anyone, but I would like to hear about it if anyone feels moved to read page 123 of their nearest book.
