I found ADD Knitter’s blog somehow, randomly (Happy Knits FB?) and I love her knitting. The projects she chooses and the colors – oy! She’s my knitting idol. And she’s HI-larious, and evidenced here as she pokes at her husband.

I have a knitting and a writing crush on ADD knitter!

What else? When is Posie’s baby going to be born forthelove?? Who else is following her adoption gig? MHar?

I saw this pic on a blog today – oh MY. It’s a CAKE decorated with jimmies etc IN THE PATTERN OF THAT EMBROIDERY I MADE FOR ICOUNT. AMAZEBALLICIOUS!!

And these labels are fab for putting on your handmade items amirite? Although if I were to use them I’d say “this took FOR-EV-ER!” That’s more me, no? Sublime Stitching, folks. She rocks.

That’s all!

People. You know I like the dooce. You may or may not, opinions vary. Whatevs. But I rilly liked this entry today. I like the “shut up” advice from the family therapist. I think it’s gold.

People create so much drama, then say it’s the kids. No, it’s not. It’s really not.

Also: please click the link about the Chinese mothering book that’s all abuzz lately. Read it. I want to discuss this. I’ve read two articles about it and am horrified.

And I love 99.998% of what I see on the purl bee, all year long. Amazing eye, for sure. Of course, she did get her start with Martha. Obv.

This makes my heart go pitter-pat.

This next gal got me into the felt obsesh I do believe. The doll I made Hattie Dale from her pattern ON THE PURL BEE, rocked mah world.

Reminder picture. Awesome.

And what’s first on her list? Scissors.

I didn’t even know I wanted one of these. Now I know!

And that tiny rotary cutter? Presh!
