Finally!

Yes, it's been awhile since my last post. Our computer has been down and in the shop. I think the kids lets some cyber germs in and killed us. It took some time to get used to not having it, too - after a couple of days curled up in the corner having withdrawals I decided to get busy so I wouldn't think about it as much. My biggest accomplishment was finally hanging the pleated shades in the living room and getting rid of the eight-foot-long (not kidding!) metal miniblind that came with the house. Now I want to go through my fabrics and make some shimmery drapiness to add to the sides. Of course, I have to use what I have because the evil w-word store has gotten rid of the best part of the store - fabric and crafts. I've heard that a few bits of yarn are left but not enough reason to go there anymore.
My baby boy turned ten recently. He'll be in middle school next year. Time sure does fly, doesn't it? Soon he'll be all grown up - and will probably still get chocolate on his face when he eats a fudge round.
I've apparently lost all of my knitting mojo. Nothing has grabbed my attention, all attempts to start a project have crashed, even the new Cookie A book doesn't have me scrambling for needles. It's so sad. I've been slowly working on a cami but it's got boo-boos and will most likely get frogged for lack of desire. Maybe it's all of the rain and surprise snow we've had lately. Surely a good day of fun in the sun would be helpful.
That darn Jennie has struck again, too. She has introduced me to the world of zines. Zines are little handmade magazines that cover any subject matter and are usually very inexpensive. I got one in pdf already and another is in the mail. She's written one. It's really funny. I'm thinking about it - but I'm still on the fence about it. You know I love making things but even I must get sleep sometimes!
No pics again....oh, before I forget...Jen and I have been exploring the world of artist trading cards. Some of the kids in my life have drawn some up and they'll be in the etsy shop soon in case you want to check them out. I just need to scan them and add them to the store. I haven't finished any yet (I'm more of a collage/fiber type of person) but they'll be along shortly. Keep an eye out!
