Finds and thoughts

Posted on: January 21, 2009

  • Although I listened to as much of the speech as I could stand without gagging, I want to go back later and reread. I'm hoping that it won't sound as bad as it did the first time. I wasn't inspired as much as angered by some of the insinuations and thinly veiled criticisms that this speech contained. Personally, I've long been proud of this country and my fellow citizens because of the potential we contain and the daily good that I see. I don't need to be reminded to work to make this country strong. As a military spouse and an American citizen, I understood my duty long ago.

  • Another knitting project for me to add to the growing list of TBKs. I love the color on this sweater, but I also love the design. Of course, I'd have to actually take the time to measure my gauge so I wouldn't end up with too much ease. I don't so much love the gauge thing, but it wouldn't be a bad thing to get in the habit of doing. Wonder if I could knit this before winter ends.

  • I really like the construction of this vest. I still like wearing vests in those in-between seasons like spring and summer. Vests are also a great layering piece under a jacket. I originally found this pattern via Ravelry. Wondering if I have enough yarn from an abandoned project to make this. Frantically doing the math in my head.

  • From Poppytalk. I love labeling things. Must be the librarian in me. These labels are really attractive and great for keeping your life organized.

  • Switchplates are an easy way to personalize any space…even if you're renting and can't make permanent changes. Just don't lose the ones that come with your apartment. Here is an easy tutorial on how to decorate your own switchplates.
  • Free recipe cards to print and use. This would be nice to use for a wedding shower gift. Put together some cooking or baking supplies and use the cards for your favorite recipes. Personal and likely to be much appreciated.

  • I had no idea you could felt into polyster. And that you could use non-wool stuff to felt with if you're using polyester. Let my internal felting monster loose!

  • "Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit consists of forty-nine original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous, and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors."

  • Cute chart for free. It's in French, but the DMC numbers are provided, so even those linguistically challenged people like me should be able to complete it. There are several other charts available as well.
