Remember me? What can I say, summer happened and all desire to maintain a blog went bye-bye! I haven’t really been doing much crafting, as the weather has been so nice for the past couple months. It’s too much to sit inside with a pile of wool on my lap when the sun is shining!
We are still in our same house. We are in no hurry to move, but it’s not like any offers have come yet. :O But that’s okay. The market is terrible. All our friends are here in this area, and it’s SUMMER! When it happens, it happens. We’ll pack up our things and move north, saying our temporary farewells to our good friends. And we’ll say fond and final farewells for those people in life that I we really won’t miss. Like, I won’t miss Mr. 17 Year Old next door racing his dirt bike up and down the street. I won’t miss his friends parking in front of our house all the time. Things like that.
I did start some knitting a few weeks ago, but have little progress to show. None, in fact. I frogged it out tonight! It was a window valance in feather and fan stitch. I was slow going on it, and once I got to the stitch pattern, I mucked up somehow and my cast-on number was off. Or I mucked up the lace part. I don’t know. I’ll restart… maybe tomorrow. I have an incentive to stay inside right now, actually, I discovered streaming television and have been catching up on the new Dr. Who series. I like it, it’s humorous. Way campy at times, but really, what do you expect? The actors are pretty decent. The character of Rose is kind of annoying, but Billie Piper plays her well. Christopher Eccleston is strange to see as a Doctor, but he grew on me after the second episode. I like his inappropriate reactions, and his giggles in the peril of danger.
I also got another hobby, this time not so much craft related, but it’s an addiction like crafting is. I don’t know why, but I got into Blythe dolls. I purchased three in the past month. I have a Primadolly Ashlette named Annuszka who I am completely customizing, a My Best Friend that I named Tatiana, and coming soon is an Ashton Drake Gallery reproduction of one of the originals, a Pretty Paisley. I don’t know what I will name her. They’re really kind of lovely and intensely creepy all in one big-headed doll. Their eyes shift directions and colors with a pull string, so you can make them look like they’re up to something. A Flickr group I am entertained by is Blythe Behaving Badly. Moo ha ha ha. The photos of excessive drinking and debauchery are hiiiighly amusing. Though that customized boy Blythe is FREAKY.
Anyway, if you are on Ravelry, look me up. I’m Lelah over there. I haven’t gotten all my projects and stash up, and I probably won’t get to the stash for a while (it’s in storage). But look me up all the same.
