Every Day Brings Something New


My mind is racing, really. It is like I have opened the door to a closet that has been filling up for ages and it all just keeps spilling out. There is so much I want to do and try but it really feels like there is never enough hours in the day to accomplish what I want to. I can't seem to keep up with myself. Last weekend I sat down and read the users manual to the sewing machine and tried everything I could and even made a cushion cover (really kind of ugly since I just used fabric that I had lying around, but learned a lot.) And then I picked up a book on knitting and taught myself to knit (result: a mis-shaped hat.) But I am getting better and hope to soon have my first home-made scarf, yippee! I'm also trying to focus back into jewelry, since that is my first planned venture. I really need to get some actual jewelry supplies and tools so I can learn to work with them as well as see what a finished project can really look like. Today's pics are of a few things I put together, but need to be redone in the right material. I think they are fun, yet still a work in progress to find something unique and truly beautiful... the journey continues.

Congrats on the knitting. I'd like to learn a bit more on crochet and then take up knitting one day. I have the same attitude in having no time in the day to accomplish everything...I come home from work and I ask myself where all the time went.
What did you do for your birthday last week? Hello? I'd like to see pictures!

You are amazing! How do you do it all? You just pick it up and learn. Amazing.

I really like the jewelry. Is it for sale?

Annie, I think you should start posting your magnificant recipes since you're such a fabulous cook and all. I think that fits into the category of your "multifarious mind"!
love ya!

The jewelry will be for sale eventually, but for now I'm just working on building a portfolio. But if there is anything that you really want I could work something out I'm sure. :)
