Me and my blog. Yup, like Ross and Rachael, we were on a break. Today, however, I was shamed into posting by Ann. The thing is…I am feeling a little apathetic toward my blog. Perhaps a change of color and design is in order. I don’t know.
I have been knitting. I just don’t feel like picking up the camera. It could be back to school blues. I learned a new seaming technique. I mattress stitched the cast on and bound off sleeve edges of the second little Debbie Bliss cardigan I knit. I will spare you a picture till I block it. But I was really pleased with the technique I learned from Knitting Tips & Trade Secrets.
The cat has fleas. Construction on the downstairs (Phase 1) begins the end of the month. We are going into the garage and gutting the kitchen. We are planning to have an open kitchen/dining/family room. Kitchen cabinets need to be chosen. I love these tiles I found on eBay but at $32 a tile–I don’t think they are really in our budget. Even sporadically throughout the rest of the tile–it’s just too expensive. An apron or farm sink is in the budget though.
Maybe it’s the hurricane…it just doesn’t feel right talking about redesigning our kitchen when so many have lost everything. I was able to donate a ton of clothes the kids had outgrown last week. I donated locally because often other charities get forgotten or neglected when something so catastrophic occurs. I was glad to hear that our local charity was sending stuff to Katrina relief too.
