Last Night's Sit & Stitch
Sure did have some yuks last night at our Sit & Stitch! I can not reveal the main story on line just in case the person wants to remain anonymous but ask me about it the next time you see me. We also got to see some wonderful samples of both finished and unfinished projects....one guy shared an awesome "paisley" humongous crochet wrap( which I will look up the title for and be more specific about when I get to the store). the other very cool project is a "Sasha" skirt which is done out of the Louet Euroflx linen. This person had ripped and reknit a couple of the ruffles more than once because she is trying to get just the right color combo. A couple of us worked on our Contemporary Quilt Wraps. I am way at the back of the pack 'cuz I keep getting sidetracked but two of the gals are very closed to finished. We all have agreed that an edging will be nice to finish it off but everyone is coming up with their own little suggestion. There was a pair of socks on the needles, someone else was working on the French market bag.....we were very busy and having alot of fun!

My future blogging invention
I have to say I am really fascinated by this whole world of blogging and sharing so many thoughts with so many people that we do not know. I am fascinated by the fact that so many people sit down at the computer and "journal". Now really, the concept of recording thoughts and memories is not a new one....but I suppose the big difference is that you are now sharing that info instead of keeping a personal diary. I wonder if the same people that blog are also keeping a personal diary or are they two totally different things?

I think about writing in my blog all the time....I say to myself " wow, I would like to share that info....or t"hat is absolutely gorgeous and I bet other people would be interested in seeing that"....and that is as far as the thought goes....because my day does not have enought time in it....I want to knit, I want to crochet, I want to laugh with people, I want to go for a walk, I want to play piano, I want to sew, I want to play with my dogs, I want to rake leaves, I want to water my plants, I want to sleep,I want to do it all and therefore we need to invent a blogging device. I should be able to walk down the street, dictate what I want to go in my blog and have it miraculosly(sp?) appear. OH NO, oh no! One more thing I want to do....invent!
