Despite the perseverance of family-wide Colds that Just Won't Go Away, this weekend was a damn good one. You can see the evidence in the current state of my kitchen table:
As you may be able to make out, fiber was dyed, a little knitting was squeezed in, Natasha got busy with her prized bottle of sparkle glue and my button collection, and I even did a little bit of non-yarn related crafting! Not pictured: the fun Friday night visit we had at the new pad of one of our favorite people, the hectic morning I spent at work on Saturday, or the fabulous mini-road trip we took to Boston on Sunday. Oh, wait. I can picture the last:
My little crumbcake at the Children's Museum. I am so proud of that girl. She constantly inspires me with the way she is growing, in both body and in spirit. With the way that she is learning to express herself, in words and in pictures. These little collages are by far my favorite objects to come out of the weekend's creating. She worked so hard on them, liberally employing both sparkly glue and her incredible negotiating skills when it came to haggling with me for more and more of my button stash:
As far as my non-yarny crafting, I made some of these for fun:
I stumbled upon this great yo-yo tutorial the other day and got inspired. I like them a lot and I'm thinking of bringing them to the little craft fair that I am doing in twenty (but who's counting?) days. Speaking of which, I should really get some work done before it's pick up time! Happy Monday, friends!
