Day 365 of 2021

It's New Year's Eve. 
I finished a knitting project last night. 
There is football on TV. 
There is nothing else to do but cast on something new.

Day 364 of 2021

I finished this tiny hat, so I guess the short rows worked out ok. 
A picture of the whole project will be posted soon, 
after it has been given to its recipient.

Day 363 of 2021

I worked a short row section according to the directions tonight 
that was totally different than any other short rows I've done before. 
I think it turned out well. 
Time will tell.

Day 361 of 2021

I definitely need a haircut. 
I'm debating between a small change and a major change. 
Of course, I need to do some research. 
I'm not opposed to taking photos of hair I like. 
This one is on the cover of a magazine. 
I also took pictures of a stranger in the store, 
with her permission, of course. 
Stay tuned.

(Most recent picture of my current hair is here.)

Day 360 of 2021

My knitting tools have finally outgrown their little pouch. 
I've been having a hard time finding things in the overstuffed pouch 
without dumping everything out each time. 
Thinking that I should make a bigger pouch, 
I realized that I had already made the perfect container. 
Since I made the Sew Together Bag, I had not found a specific use for it, 
but that changed today. 


Day 359 of 2021

Fireball and I had a very Merry Christmas full of Peace and Quiet. 
It was just what we needed. 
I hope you had the Merry Christmas you needed too.

Day 355 of 2021

You know I am highly distractible. 
While looking in the kitchen desk drawer for small Post-it notes, 
I came across my puzzle rings. 
They were quite tarnished so, of course, I had to start polishing. 
I found Post-its somewhere else.

Day 353 of 2021

The dishes have been changed. 
I'm really feeling the traditional red and green this year. 

(meadow, slate, scarlet, evergreen, shamrock, white)


Day 352 of 2021

We set up the white tree today
 and threw on a few handmade ornaments I made last year 
and suddenly it's Christmas.

Day 351 of 2021

I'm sharing my breakfast since the rest of the day got away from me
 and I have no other photographic proof
 with the exception of my pedicure
 which I thought better of showing here. 
Breakfast: Leftover mashed potatoes with gravy
 topped with an over medium egg.

Day 348 of 2021

GB#1 and Bear are off on their next adventure. 
It's very quiet at our house.

Day 347 of 2021

All the little girls played one last time before parting ways 
until next time. 
At a red light on the ride home, 
I glanced back to see that GB#4 had fallen asleep.

Day 346 of 2021

We made ice skating wishes come true today. 
GB#1 and  GB#3 took to it very well 
and it all came back to R after a little "ice" time.

Day 345 of 2021

Here is evidence that GB#1 is staying with us. 
She is loving the page-a-day Tangram calendar from 2009 that I never finished. 
Each day I give her another week's worth of puzzles to solve. 
She keeps getting faster at the problem solving. 
GB#1 is also fascinated with our glitter bottles - hours of fun.

Day 344 of 2021

We got new shirts for the little ones. 
We will not be all together this Christmas, so gifting happened early.

Day 343 of 2021

I'm deconstructing the bridal bouquet and am loving the details.

Day 342 of 2021

I did get a chance to get some photos of the secret wedding project. 
I made a corgi puppy.

Day 341 of 2021

I've moved on to Christmas projects, 
but I have a secret wedding project I'll show you soon 
if I can get a chance to photograph it.

Day 340 of 2021

As things start to calm down, 
Fireball, Little E, GB#1 and I found time to play a new-to-me game 
that Little E and GB#1 recommended. 
It was tons of fun and I can't wait to play again soon.

Good people, good time.

Day 335 of 2021

Fireball bought me the Stitch Supply Co advent calendar. 
(I had hinted and sent him the link for sign-up.) 
Today is December first. 
I opened box number one.
