Just in case…

you’ve wandered here via Pip’s lovely post, I’m currently posting at http://blogportion.blogspot.com.

One thing about me, alas, I have trouble with blog commitment…but I’m always babbling on somewhere!  I’ll try and import the posts in from Blogger as I remember. Okay?

Eye Spy Sunday…on Monday

I’m often a bit behind the 8-ball, this is because I live in Drewzel-world and am on Drewzel-time.
Super furry coat mama Cindy has got a new meme going, so I’m in!

Eye Spy…what I want for Christmas.

You know what I’d really like for Christmas? If the fairies would come and tidy up the house, throw out the clutter, pack away neatly the good stuff, and then give everything a thorough clean. That would be super thanks Santa.

PS. I’d also like my Flickr pro account renewed, and ditto for my Frankie subscription. Ta.

Sunday Stash

fabric, originally uploaded by drewzel.

Today’s stash piece is one that I received yesterday as a birthday pressie* from my friend Christina (the Knitting Knut). It has no information on the selvedge and feels like a sort of mock-silk polyester. It was a remnant, so I probably will make a long rectangular scarf from it, in an effort to be “stylish” and “glamorous”.

*my birthday is Dec 3, for those who asked.
