Je tricote mon fromage.

If you haven't been to Regretsy, go there. It's where DIY meets WTF.

Anyway, she is taking a little vacation, and her replacement will be - wait for it- Crochet Guevara.
I almost wet myself. But anymore, I do that every time I sneeze.

Avoid contact with eyes.

I know there are word geeks who follow my blog. Read this, okay? It'll be fun, or at least interesting.

Quam difficile potest esse?

For the word geeks amongst us, and you know who you are.

Be the ball.

I had a dream last night in which Bill Murray and I had sex. wtf?

Also at the party, (it was a costume party,) Lady Gaga appeared wearing a long, slim, pink gown with huge pink acrylic fingernails attached, making it look as if two large hands were holding her body. These nails could also be played as musical instruments, and her male entourage did so.

Sometimes I just can't wait for bedtime.

I'm in a very bad state of mind right now. Not at all happy. I have neuropathic damage to my feet due to diabetes, and my primary care provider wanted to give me pain pills. Duh! That is like the last thing to get!

So. I go see my wonderful therapist tomorrow, and I reckon we will begin to deal .

Leaves a clean, non-greasy feel.

¡Hola, mes amis!

I am doing well these days, mentally and physically. The last two days have brought rain from Isaac which has cleansed the air of all the pollens that have been tormenting me all summer. It has been so dry here and the rain came as a steady drizzle most of the time, allowing it to soak into the parched earth. It has also been cooler.

After I finished the entrelac socks, I actually began working on my first art piece in about 6 years. Not playing, or hoping, or wishing, but really working. My therapist asked me if there was a way to move some of my over-stuffed studio into another room. Such a simple question and such a simple answer! To iron all the dyed cotton fabric pieces, I set up the ironing board in the office, at a low height so I could work while I watched movies on NetFlix or listened to public radio on iTunes. Then I moved a work table into the office that was big enough for my cutting mat, and I have been cutting some of the over 1600 2" squares I will need. (I want to have more like 1800 in order to have a larger choice.)

Yesterday, I cut a cotton batt to the finished size, plus extra, and attached it to the wall - in the office - and I began placing a few squares onto it. That's when I realized that I wasn't anywhere near cutting enough squares, so I have been alternating placing with cutting.

I have been so happy!

My friend Leslie.

Here is the cartoon that I am working from and some of the squares. The finished piece will be large; 54" X 72".
