Topsy-Turvy doll for younger niece, chemo cap for donation and mittens ... well one mitten and most of the second (I said I was a bit accomplished)
Cut to save the uninterested from masses of big ol' knitting pictures )

I know, I'm as shocked as you are.

To save those of you not all that excited to scroll through masses of knitting pictures....
Almost done with Xmas knitting, and only a month too late )

Things able to make me smile seem to be in short supply today, but this did it:

Ceiling cat at the store lives! I hadn’t heard noises for a while, so I was wondering about him/her. Not only did I hear it, but ceiling cat even peeked down to see us. Now if only it would let us get it out of the ceiling, we’d all be happier. Lura tried to bribe it with some ham and cheese, but no luck yet.

Keeping myself busy lately. Noticed that I never did post some of the things I planned on.
pictures from the past week or so... )

First sign of fall? Eggnog lattes!!

I made an iced one as soon as we got the eggnog in yesterday, but it's just not the same. Made a much better hot one today. NOMTASTIC!

Second best fall sign? Return of scarf weather!

Stayed up knitting until nearly 11pm last night because I was determined to finish at least one project before next Wednesday and this one was soooooooooo close. Luckily I did, because it was pretty chilly this morning and it was nice to have on for the first part of my shift.

Went back to Bill's Berry Farm. Lura, Lilly, Mackenzie and I had gone earlier this year for the blueberry festival. This time we went for the apple/pumpkins. Sadly, Holly couldn't go with us this time either because she had to work. Instead she drew us a Paper!Holly to take in her place.

Pictures and whatnot here, probably spammed you with more than enough outside a cut as it is )

…and this post shows me that if I would just


That maybe I wouldn’t have a billionty things in progress with nothing to really show for it.

Have I learned my lesson? Nope. I almost think I work better this way. Or else that’s just one of the nice things I tell myself.

(Warning – this post could not be any less dial up friendly if I tried)

I finished a couple of scrapbook pages )

Realized I never posted pictures of Sharee’s doll )

The start of Rochelle’s doll )

RLBFs oh-so-ugly hat and a couple other things )

*whew* I got tired out just listing them all.
You’d think spending most my time this week home sick I would have gotten more done. Not so much. Starting to actually feel better today, so maybe next week will be different.

...and my totebags have Things in them. Lots of things because Sue is fucking awesome (and adorable, can't forget the adorable) and I am spoiled. Wonderfully wonderfully spoiled. Even though I didn't get to go to Comic Con myself *sadface* she's come back with pics, vids, stories and prezzies (did I mention the prezzies?) so that I can pretend I was there. All without the excitement of days on a bus.


In other, much smaller news, I HAVE KNIT AN IMPOSSIBLY TINY BEAR!

He has absolutely nothing to do with the awesomeness/adorableness that is my newly returned Sue, but I couldn't help but show him off.

I might hate the US Postal Service, but I LOVE EBAY.

Package of knitting needles from the auction I won arrived today, after spending the past 4 days in a post office not 3 hours from my house. I'm thinking someone might have sat on the box, but I was SOOOOOOOO happy to see this out front when I came home that I almost didn't care :D

Cut because I took a bunch of pictures that most people on my flist would find stunningly dull. Still posted because I am excited and at least one of you is bound to be flaily with me )

Sue's leaving for her trip to ComicCon tomorrow - buses take time you know. Even as she sits here judging my Ianto-ish love of labels, my (apparently) bizzare way of posting here, and my sharpie induced drunk-like haze last night I'm still pretty sure she likes how I improved her luggage. Torchwood NZ branding on one side and the T blown up on the other. Harkness on top, of course.

Giant pictures this way )

Book meme (tagged by [ profile] morgia)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

“Your father is a washed-out clock jockey. I think you over-estimate his chances – and his talents. Besides, we’ve got the summer of 1947 locked down so tight not even a transtemporal gnat could get back there without us knowing about it. Retrieve Jack from ‘The Raven’ and you can have your own dear hubby back.”

You made me read ahead and spoiler myself Nadine, hope you’re happy :P

The book is Lost in a Good Book (Jasper Fforde), and lucky for me I was reading it on Thursday (haha Thursday Next) Sorry. Moving on... The book underneath it is The Complete Sherlock Holmes, much much heavier.

Not going to tag anyone, but do it if you feel like (and don’t think the book you’re reading is too embarrassing)

Now for a few pictures from our trip into the mountains this weekend. Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends mean the giant flea market takes over Packwood and we usually try to make it to at least one. )

Why oh why did I fight getting a laptop for so long? I am currently on the computer, but outside, enjoying the humidity. When it’s cool and humid I am a happy camper, usually we get impossibly hot and dry days the closer it gets to summer.

Since no one is online and I'm bored to tears - well not quite, but close - you get a random post of random from me today. Sure I could stop procrastinating and work on my todo list, but where's the fun in that? )

Dalek O’ Doom is done!!!!

Still doesn’t have a proper name, as most of the things I called him during the making process can’t be said in polite company. Hey, don’t look at me like that! I blame the little yarny bastard for bringing out the more colourful side of my vocab. Soooooo until I come up with a better name, ‘Dalek o’ doom’ he shall be.

Check out this new little Jack/Liz 10 fic by [ profile] tardistenantsue
Spoilers for The Beast Below.
I love it. I also love the new Doctor, not as much as I love Ten (he is my Doctor after all) but enough that I feel really badly about having doubted him.

Now back to your regularly scheduled post....

Have I finished knitting my Dalek?

Not even close.

Which is why this post should be subtitled
Things I’ve been doing while avoiding Dalek bobbles  )

I’ve done some more knitting, heard from my Dad with travel updates, taken a better look around my new(ish) yard … oh yeah and I may have playfully threatened RLBF’s health and well being.

Crafts, pictures and general wtfery )
patelyne: (rose - hee hee)

Okay, so it might not be the prettiest thing ever
it's the first and only thing I've ever knit.

blah blah blah bigger pic blah blah OMG I FINISHED blah )

Is it Thursday yet? YES IT IS.

Time for the weekly supernatural watching get-together, now with even more teeny tiny snacks !! --- CLICK IT )
patelyne: (crafty)
...And I'm sure it will confuse all my non-awesome neighbors. Here's to hoping that [ profile] tardistenantsue isn't the only one on the block who recognizes the new logo for Doctor Who!

Speaking of my awesome new neighbor, Sue has made a spectacular Supernatural themed pumpkin and posted it here. It is currently hanging out here with my pumpkin beautifying the dining room :D

ETA: Here is a better picture of both of our pumpkins at night

Here’s a page I did of my niece-to-be when she was over at our house one day last summer. Not only is this my first try on making a scrapbook page on canvas, this is also the first time I’ve tried to take a picture of a page to post it. Strangely enough I had more trouble with that part than I did taking the pictures to put on the page itself!

Close-ups and such )

A cake made for me by Japonica, one made by me for her, and one made for both of us by MaddyLion!
