The other colour that chimes in with amazing frequency is red. But still with blue, 'cause apparently I'm all about the blue. A few years ago one of my BFFs tried to have an intervention with me about the robin's egg blue. I've branched out a little since then, but you can still see the influence.
It's hard to believe, but I'm coming close to finishing the 365 days self-portrait project. When I first started it, I had doubts that I'd be able to complete a whole year without missing a single photo. I'm an excellent starter of projects, but not always such a great finisher. I have to say, I've completely surprised myself. I'm at day 361 today and on Friday, I'll be finished. An entire year in photos. If you've ever considered trying to keep a diary? This is the easiest way to do it.
In anticipation of the last day (and because I have no other knitting or sewing finished) I'm going to post a few of my favourites over the next couple days. Some are pretty, some are unshowered, some are goofy, few are serious, so I think overall it's a well-rounded representation of me.
Everything seems to be at loose ends right now. I had a shipment of zippers go missing off our front porch. My serger needle thread keeps breaking and the whole machine desperately needs to go to the spa. My iron keeps peeing water out from below the plate. All of this 3 weeks before Bazaar Bizarre. Figures, right?
But I'm getting it all worked out despite the irksome setbacks.
I was going to push to have a shop update done before Baz Biz, but with these speedbumps I'm going to delay it until December 8th. I'm making a metric tonne of box bags and the new mini box bags, so look for plenty of those. As always you can peek in at flickr to see more behind the scenes (or just catch up on kitteh photos.)
