A Variety of Stuff...

Back to work!

And then also ... Sock Summit Registration Day! OMG. I have nothing but the deepest sympathies for Stephanie and Tina. I keep sending them hugs and love and wish for beer and chocolates...

Yes, I got my classes. I ended up cycling through 4 times and charging my card each time. I actually ended up exactly where I wanted to be - but not before, as so many others did, I crashed the way their server did, into a mountain of tears over my critical class: the Barbara Walker lecture. And then, miraculously, someone on Ravelry said, "go back...there are classes open again" and there were. I, luckily and very gratefully, got every one I wanted (over 4 tries). There are those who couldn't stay at their computers who didn't. I do know how they feel, because I felt that crushing agony of not getting what I truly wanted...and then I forced myself to come to grips: I got some good classes, it's okay, and we'll have more time in Portland...

And we will have plenty of sight seeing time in Portland, but I'll also get to hear Barbara Walker, too. My thanks to the computer gods who allowed the server to stay stable long enough for me to grab that class. And most especially, my thanks to Ravelry!

So I came home, ate a nice CSA dinner, and then began again to work on a very new item for Nana Sadie Rose.

For those of you who've looked at the website and have seen the button labeled "Violette" with a page that read "coming soon" for months and months? Well she's here. She's been on the drawing board all those months. But I'm getting a lot of good comments from those I've allowed to see.

Here's a little peak:
Yes, a case...
closed with a loop.

What's inside? I'll show you...tomorrow!

Ooh! Gorgeous :) You know I'm getting one of these. And you also know that I'm over the moon that we're going to go see Barbara Walker together!

You will get a book autographed or two while you're there, yes?

You are a tease! :-) SHOW US THE INSIDE. I know, tomorrow.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
