Hi, kids! I don't have anything crafty to show you today - I've got a knitted armadillo in the works (this was a special request - I'm good at knitting rectangles and squares, so this one is a bit of a challenge for me - thank heavens for patterns!). But I had such a good day I wanted to say hello and tell you a few things, just because they made me happy/amused:
First - I linked up my blog at Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom on her worldwide blog hop, and she asked if I'd be interested in an interview. Of course I said yes. What a great opportunity to talk some more! It's up there now - if you're interested in reading more of my blathering here's the link.
Second - I'm on Pinterest. I've been there for a bit and have the most lackluster boards ever - I'm pretty much using it instead of bookmarking links for projects, but I LOVE seeing what other people post. I try to guess who it is before I look at the name of the pinner - I like that people have such distinctive styles that you can tell who they are by a simple picture. If you want an invite let me know!
Third - I added a Flickr button on the left for you. If you use one of my tutorials or are inspired by something you see here I'd love it if you added a picture to the pool. Seeing what other people do gives me inspiration, so I'd especially love to see what my readers have been up to.
Fourth - I'm sure you've heard of the earthquake that hit the east coast today. We actually felt it a bit here in Philly. At first I thought someone was walking heavy or the maintenance men were up to something and just thought "Really, dude? WTF?" Then, it happened again and my boss pretty much bellowed "WHY IS THE FLOOR SHAKING?" It wasn't scary or anything, and I got to experience my first earthquake. You would think we were at the center of it instead of hundreds of miles away - slow news night, I suppose. However, I've had enough of that. My brain can't wrap itself around what it must have felt like in Japan, at thousands and thousands times stronger - nope, one quake is enough for me.
And finally (because I can hear you thinking "Jeez she's rambler!") - for my brother's birthday he wanted all of us to just go out, get some eats, and play some quizzo. Fine by me! I like eating and I like trivia. Well, our team won! Useless knowledge isn't always useless. Then we did that fifty-fifty thing and one of the tickets we bought was pulled. My brother had to answer one question right to win the pot, he took a guess, and we won that too! If you're interested, Indiana Jones' first name is Henry. File that away for future use.
I don't have any pics for you but I like to include a little something in my posts - so this is for you :)
Back soon! Happy Wednesday!
