50/52: AFK

Away From Keyboard.
And away from home. And work, and stress.
And camera.

Only eleven hours old.
My job has its perks sometimes.

To your future

I don't have (m)any stamps saying anything about new jobs, sorry you're leaving, good luck in the future and such, so this cool Tim Holtz stamp has to do the job this time. And in some way, it does relate to the questions and doubts most of us can feel when facing the unknown future. No point in spending time feeding our fears, when so much more can be achieved by encouraging our hopes and wishes!
The papers are BG and the sentiment is stamped on StickyBack Canvas. Embellishments are kept to a minimum due to the busy DP - just strips of Tim Holtz negative film and script tape.

47/52: Boo! BZZZ!

An unwelcome delay brought an unexpected surprise!
I walked around looking at all the umbrella animals
(loving this moquito caught in a spider's web)
with a smile on my face
wishing my camera was the good one
and my delay a little longer.

New on my needles - Undercover baby blanket

Another knitting WIP, this time in sock yarn actually. That means you get a warm, sturdy and superwash blanket for a pretty good price too. One of the cool things about this blanket is that is's knitted from the center! That's a first for me, and I couldn't resist giving it a try. In this picture it looks mostly like a gellyfish... :) I plan to do something neat with the colours as well, a little trick that's described in the pattern. It will be finished quite soon I think - I'm suffering the "one more row" syndrome quite badly with this one. Details on Ravelry.

New on my needles - something secret

Now this delicate little thing is a secret project. As secret as it can be when I plaster a big picture of it on my very public blog! Oh well. I'll let you wonder for yourself what it could be. It's going to take me a long time to finish, I fear, partly because the yarn is 100% cotton and that was a BIG transition for me. Wool and wool blends flow so much better through my hands. But don't you just love that colour? Check back in a year or so to see the result. ;) Ok, feel free to stop by sooner than that too, there will be other things popping up now and then. :)
