Well, you may not have noticed my absence, but I've been missing you all. The kiddo and I are recovering from another nasty stomach bug we had over the weekend. Between that, a trip to the dentist to fill a little cavity, and four nasty blisters I got today from wearing my high-heeled sandals (I knew I would be walking all the way across town - what was I thinking?), just a normal day (Tomorrow? Please?) will feel like a lovely vacation for us.
So let's get to the interesting things first: Caroline sent photos of her scalloped hem skirt. Isn't it terrific? I love her fabric choices, and I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am that some of you are actually using the tutorial.
Oh, did you notice those gorgeous shoes? I'll bet Caroline doesn't go traipsing off to the dentist in them, unlike some of us.
And now shall I show you how I wasted time this weekend? [insert yawn here] I'm embarrassed. But let me tell you how it all started:
When Joelle opened Purl Patchwork, she had a terrific little window display featuring wooden spools of thread. I thought it was charming and took some photos of it.
And then I found all those wooden spools at Grandma's apartment.
And finally, the new copy of the Garment Hill catalog arrived. That did it. My little spools needed some camera time too, just because I like them so much.
So there you have it. My record of time poorly spent. Maybe tomorrow I'll have some real content, or at least something interesting, to blog about. Until then, I'm planning to watch Memoirs of a Geisha and work on my sock tonight. I promise, it's going to feel like a night on the town, comparatively speaking.
