1 a.m. just getting started...
still feeling crummy, mainly just really tired. i was in bed embroidering all day. and i had crazy dreams that the psycho that mother-f-ed me through my window threw a bucket of mud on my car. among other things. i am on antibiotics and i feel all crazy. and then, i have the rare stint where i get depressed about being sick and having no energy and lupus, etc, despite the fact that i am not super sick, just tired. tons of people are way sicker than me and do way more. but when i think about things like having children, which i am not even sure i would want to do, i think about the fact that i barely have the energy to take care of myself. grad school? no way. i could not do it. travel? really difficult. lots of things. and no one has it easy. and i know that i have it pretty good. i am really lucky. and moving on.
i embroidered a sketch i did of the kitten sleeping that is really cute. i will take photos and maybe post them. if the computer gods look down on me and smile. i really like having a basic pattern that i sketch on and then going crazy from there.
i have orders to pack and ship, and the whole not having a computer for any length of time drives me crazy. ooooh. crazy.
i am glad that i am sketching again. i am eager to start making art again. i really got in a funk, and i know that big things are in store. i know.
the yarn, you ask? this is hand dyed merino, plied with silk thread, sequins and the shiny stuff is ingeo, which is an amazing silky soft fiber made from corn. i have 3 small skeins of it, and it is even prettier in person.
also! i have a few small skeins of everyone's favorite pink and green combo...muffy's favorite...pretty pretty!
i am planning to have the kids over, amy? to-morrow and do some baking!
oh, also, anyone going to the sheep and wool festival in maryland, let me know, we are staying at the hotel that everyone i know is staying and and my hubby will probably come, so we are scouting to see who else will come...so contact me. and chocolatte...i don't have your email address!
oh, lastly, a really sweet gal that i am giving a spinning lesson to in a week or so for her birthday...yay! is going to give me a sewing lesson. how awesome is that. we will be forever bonded...iron-on of course.
off to try to sleep. and take my antibiotics. wish my poor kidneys well. they are trying their very best, poor girls.
