creative needs
I haz them. I haven't made anything in far, far too long. Knitting isn't doing it for me at the moment, due in no small part to my current state of craft disorganization. I can't sew -- no room in... my room. I need this leatherwork class in a way I can't even describe. I just have to design the pattern I want to emboss -- we're doing a notebook cover. I'm thinking of putting my arms on it, and maybe the Tarragon badge on the other side. I can't wait...

Tuck a teeny-tiny Bossie and a handful of sheep hairs in a baggie and carry it around in your pocket...

Oh, I totally know what you mean.

I am SO with you. If I don't do something creative soon...

Speaking of knitting, you crochet correct? I have an afghan that my great grandmother made for my college graduation (yes you read that right.) Somehow it got left outside a few years back. I don't know how, I only know it sure as hell wasn't me. I think someone used it to protect some furniture from getting damaged and then didn't bring it back in. If I knew who, I promise you, I'd shoot them. Well any way, there's one place at one end it has a hole. The yarn is not damaged, but there are loops on either side. I think it can be fixed, but I never learned to crochet. Its not urgent, but would you be able to look at it and show me how to fix it?

Crap... I wish I could help you, but I can't; I don't crochet. The only person I know who does is evilnicola. You know Nikki, right?

I have met Nikki a few times. I know others who crochet too, including my mom. (Though she's a school teacher when she tries to teach me anything it doesn't typically go well-she's a good teacher, I am just not a good student when my mom is doing the teaching. We both know and accept it!) I was hoping you knew, given your lefty status!!

Some day I just may sit down and watch you knit. I tried to learn when I was 12 and it went horribly because of the lefty problem. I'm sure being a bratty pretween didn't help matters.
