instagramed: Starting my morning knitting outside before a dentist appointment. Listening to the birds and light music from the grocery store track (even a Hamilton song at one point). Smelling the flowers from nearby bushes. Watching a little squirrel who got very close to me in his desire to find good scraps. Tasting some tart cherry chocolate almond mix from graze and wondering if any of those cherry seeds are going to be stuck in my teeth now 😀 Touching this fine silky wool that is a delight. My senses are satisfied this morning. I’d really rather postpone this dentist appointment through. Adulting is hard. - on 5/23. Starting my morning knitting outside before a dentist appointment.

My iPad is inside my planner, which will be helping me get more pulled together. and the iced almond vanilla dirty chai is “fueling my story” and waking me up. I shall fill in my week in and perhaps feel more like me after migraine weekend. THIS is how you charge a planner and #planahappylife right? 🙂 #plannergeek - on 5/22.

I loved showing that on a mainstream fabulous tv show as an example that crafting doesn’t always have to be about apercect end result, it can be about the process. 🙂 if you didn’t get to watch the show, it’s on hulu 😉 all of the wonderful, history-teaching, time-traveling, relationship/friendship-building episodes.

instagramed: Altiplano #boardgamegeek got it on the table again quickly because it ended up being a day I couldn’t make it out of the house. Such a good game, it’s by the same designer as Orleans, so it’s got an element of “deck” building because you are customizing your collection of discs that you pull from your bag. And a worker placement aspect but with no player blocking involved. Popcorn from the airpopper and #fiberanddice 🙂 - on 5/13.

instagramed: I’ve been knitting this large garter stitch ruffle for the Hasukai Cowl for the last week in my bits of spare time. You complete the ruffle and then pick up the body from there. And I’ve been binding off for a few hours of tv. And I’m still not 100% sure if it’s muddying the colors more than I can handle. I LOVE this yarn. and I’d really like to sit here and just rip. I love the idea of this cowl SO much. But ya know, I’ve got other yarn I could use for the pattern, I’m sure of it! So maybe, I pick another pattern for this yarn and plan this pattern for next. A week into a project is nothing compared to what it will be as a full project! Instagram as a little journaling through deciding my knitting project. - on 5/4.

Next time! #memademay #mmmay2018 I’m wearing my You’re Beautiful shawl by @mairlynd in @sunvalleyfibers and Queure Fibers. I was awfully inspired by a wrap dress Erin was wearing to want to see something for me to wear. But that requires a path to my sewing machine so maybe I’ll do some baby steps first. I can reach my paper piecing 🙂 also wearing some great peachy colors on my eyes and a blotted lip in Ice Cube. #fancifulchatter - on 5/4.

instagramed: For #memademay #mmmay2018 i threw on this headband/hairbow I made a few years back from two madelinetosh unicorn tails. I’ve got my mom and Leah coming over to help clean and it’s a rest day so anything else was overkill. This is keeping my freshly washed hair back and goes nice with my flushed cheeks from a wee bit of pre-cleaning. I put on the birthday gift lipstick from sephora, i got the @bitebeauty set because I always like how they feel going on. It’s more of a tan color than I would choose, very close to my natural lip, so it’s not one I’d reach for all the time but it is nice for days like these 🙂 #fancifulchatter - on 5/2.
