Actually Finished Something

This weekend I got to be a Parrotthead for the first time.  One of the friends of my youth came to town and went to the show with me.  A grand time and mucho tequilla was had by all.

This friend is one that I owed a handmade craft some time in 2011, so I fulfilled this promise with a book safe. This Spanish text book was rescued from a by-the-pound bin at a thrift store. The safe compartment was lined with maps taken from an atlas that was rescued from the same situation.


Still haven't gotten the stitching mojo back yet. But I have started something new: knitting. Dear friend SU is teaching me how to knit Continental. I'll pause a momment to let PP recover from this shock. ... So far, my knitting looks a lot like my crocheting: way too tight. Why is my tension so tight when working with yarn but I can do just fine with thread and floss and silk and tiny needles?

TUSAL: May 2011

Here's my TUSAL bottle for May's new moon.  If it look suspiciously like the shot from April, there's a reason.  Due to being very busy at work and allergies and a sinus infect yada yada yada I've been in a crafting slump lately.  Here's hoping this is just a temporary thing and I'll be feeling crafty and productive again in May.
