It is Sunday night and I promised myself to learn how to use the 4 double pointed needles to knit in a circle. It could be for socks but I want to leg warmers. I use them so much when it is cold and I love them. I found a lesson on YouTube www.youtube.co/watch?v=9NQMGCo_mXY and at least was able to get started. It looks so easy when she does it. My hands are like uncontrolled stubs. Plus the needles feel all wrong, clanging into each other and seeming like all the stitches are gonna fall off when I am not looking. I can see the circle forming, I sure don't know what it is going to look like. Guess I have to practice. practice. practice.

Yesterday it was so hot and now it's raining. Argh! I haven't even started wearing shoes yet. My feet are going to get wet when I go from my studio to the house. Fall has fallen on me like a big wet blanket. Maybe that is just Monday blues talking. One of the posters I am working on has a man in it with a scowl. It must be fixed. Guess that's what I will be doing today.

I am thinking I shouldn't do any work today, but too late I already did. Isn't this work. Ha Ha. I am going to list buttons on ebay today. It's fall, time for halloween stuff. Is this work. Yes, listing on ebay is time consuming. Oh well at least I have pie for the end of the day. Check it out. OOOhh! Yum.

Ah, my first blog entry. How exciting!!!!!!
I thought it would be fun to share the work I do each day. Everyday is a creative adventure for me. Sometimes I am successful with my ideas and sometimes I am not. If I have any success at all, I usually become obsessed with it until it is exactly right or until I have explored every possibility with it.
Sometimes I become confused with things I want to do and things I have to do. Ahh, then I don't seem to accomplish anything. So last night I made a list. Today I have a job to start and errands to run.
#1 Post office (I am sending some custom buttons I created to Ann in North Carolina. See Pictures:
