I’m in the middle of a WIP whittle down right now, so most of my free time is going to that. I’m only knitting on my WIPs and not casting on anything new until the end of the month. After seeing how much I accomplished during the 17 days of the Ravellenic Games, I wanted to see what I could do with another 17 days. Hopefully by September I’ll have a nice post with a few FOs to show off.
In the meantime, I tried to link someone to something here and then realized there were things I had thought I posted, but apparently never did.
So this is a quick update to fix that )

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 )

…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.

Peanut butter, american cheese and bologna sandwiches.

Love you Daddy, but you should never have been in charge of making me lunch as a kid

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 )

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 )

Hey guys, remember when I used to go on and on about scrapbooking and my obsession with papers and chopping my pictures up to tiny little pieces and how I was gluing my fingers together regularly? Yeah I know, it's been a while. Now my craft room is mostly set up how I want it and I got some goodies for Christmas, so I've started to wrap up some of my in progress pages.

Here are a few more scrapbook pages I’ve done on my 2008 album. I know. I should have finished this over a year ago, so much for New Year’s resolutions. I claim the fact most my things were packed up waiting to move houses for months as a legit excuse.

The last two pages are from my vacation back home to see the family this past May (that’s almost current…..ish)

Cut for massive sized pictures )

I made this page to post for the June challenge over at [ profile] ready_set_scrap 20A – accordion flowers. Except I also used stamping on the paper I used for two of my flowers so would that be the 20B challenge? Hmm...

Cut for masses of pictures and so I won’t annoy those on my flist not as obsessed with paper as I… )

Warning – This contains ranting and bitching, Delta hate and mild Starbucks bashing, blatant disregard for religion (including both stereotypes and blasphemy), dirty filthy language, and more than its fair share of parenthesis. Just so you know. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. And yes I’m fully aware I’m most likely going to hell, and that if I was logical I would just be happy I made it home safe and shush. I promise to go back to happy as soon as I get this out of my system. Then I’ll scrap some lovely vaca pics or something. Also – since I’ve pieced this together from all the jottings in my notebook please forgive any tense switching, okay? And RLBF =Real Life Boyfriend Anthony, not to be confused with imaginary boyfriend David Tennant (who I’m sure in parallel universe loves me deeply. Hey they’re my delusions, don’t judge)

One of the lessons I have learned recently is that my scanner is very handy for making the pages postable here. Even if it is too small and tends to cut a little off the edges (so please know that I really don‘t have pictures hanging off the sides), this was much better than cursing at my camera for flashing on my pictures. Seeing as how I got the tiniest bit obsessed in making this last set of pages work, any little bit of crazy I can keep away is a good thing. So….moving ever closer to the end of last year, welcome to November and my birthday page:

Getting my scrappin’ act together last year by having pages for each month seemed like a good idea at the time. However, it is now a brand new year and I have yet to finish. This is the latest installment in the adventures of my long overdue scrapbook pages…

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 )
