What do I do? I can’t make anyone happy…I can’t even make anyone feel better. I’m lost. What can I do?
When ur brother calls mad cuz ur Mom’s been bawling all day cuz some guy on Twitter treated her like a jackass. That.
Baby Kinley's pink & brown quilt
How cute is this little quilt I just made? Flannel front and back, satin blanket binding. I love it. I hope she will too.
MIL's flannel shaggy quilt
This was her Christmas present, I’m soo late posting pics. It’s queen sized. My hubby actually laid ouf the blocks and helped me snip over half the seams. She loved it.
5 kids in my family.... I feel we are a minority. ...
gggreenlight: and technically my big sister is my step sister but whatever. my mom would always answer yes and people would give us really dirty looks. WHATEVER! i plan on having a lot of kids, i love big families. I am the oldest of 7 living kids (there would have been 12 of us). I am 24. My children are 5 and 2, my youngest sister is 3. When I was *12* people would ask me if the...

Casting on the baby sized version of this hat pattern with a heathery purple color of Jeannee by Plymouth Yarns for DH’s friend’s upcoming baby girl. Using the picot edge so I can thread a pretty ribbon through it. : ) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cabled-viking-hat
Just watched the Boondock Saints II movie. This movie gives me needs. That is all.
I wish parts of my husband would hurry and heal already from lower abdominal hernia surgery.
I am having coping issues tonight. I have had 3 shots of Jack with ONE shot of Pepsi Max as a chaser. I may be a little drunk. I am not to be held responsible for anything I reblog. Nothing is getting sent to twitter. (People I work with at church follow my twitter).
The Red Queen
I love Alice in Wonderland, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and I love this quilt that was inspired by it. I hope it finds its way to a new home and lover soon. http://www.etsy.com/listing/60750900/the-red-queen-pinwheel-lap-or-throw
My Mom just called to tell me my aunt showed up. And mentioned that she’s almost done w/her 3rd beer (T brought her a 12pk). She’s talking about how her crazy sister is staying in DOWNTOWN Gatlinburg to look at houses in Knoxville (dumb much?) and then she says… “I love Van Gogh.” And then she giggles. And then she says, “I may be a little drunk.”...
We were supposed to go to Mom’s tonight. We didn’t make it. I talked to her twice on the phone, in length, and once to my brother. Then I bring up tumblr and see that my psycho aunt, uncle and cousin showed up on Mom’s doorstep tonight. Apparently they’re in town house hunting for 2 weeks. I say apparently because I don’t know. Weird that no one mentioned it on...
Hubby's new cabled hat
For some reason the “Knotty but Nice” hat pattern title reminded me of Jay saying, “Would you do me? I’d do me… I’d do me hard.” in Clerks2. Just a little warped leap my brain made from one thing to another. *shrugs* It’s a Knitty.Com pattern that was well writting/charted and really easy to follow inspite of the complex look of the cables. I...
I am soooo sorry, but...
wordsworthinc: m’lady was on Ravelry earlier posting photos. And there was an avi there for a knitter. And I couldn’t tell if the drawing was someone praying or giving oral. Maybe a bit of both? For some reason it cheers me greatly that Mr Wordsworth’s M’Lady is a raveler. I wish I knew her Ravelry ID. I would look at her projects.
As of today I'm starting my new Knitting Diet plan
janizzle: It goes a little something like this: 1. Start new knitting project 2. Become engrossed in said knitting project 3. Forget to eat. This would work PERFECTLY if only I didn’t have to put aside said knitting to go fix food and feed my kids… which reminds me to eat.
This is not a play on words. Last year for her birthday I made my Mom 2 pairs of socks. One was plain ol’ knit, one was a complex pattern. This year for her birthday I made her 2 pairs of socks. Both were plain ‘ol knit but in yarn that at least striped or patterned. I think we should make it a tradition. Birthday Socks. Works for me. Mom is so easy to knit socks for...
I am making pot roast.
That is all.
My glass making friend loves her socks!
So glad my friend Lisa (who makes killer glass) loves the socks I knit her this summer, now that she’s finally getting to wear them!! Pics: http://bit.ly/dl1pQr
I’m sitting at my kitchen table next to my sewing machine and the quilt top for my niece that I need to sew together. But I’m looking at other people’s quilts on tumblr instead. And in trying to remember how to get to my folder of quilt pics on Flickr, I found this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/20435355@N08/4817795098/in/photostream/ Which is a bag I made from recycled...
My husband’s best friend has fallen on hard times over the last year. Really hard times. Like, he’s living out of his truck hard times. And Tony keeps telling him he can come and stay on our couch for a little while, or can we give him money, or can we get him a pre-paid phone so he at least has a number he can give people when he applies for jobs. And all T does is say he...
