Work is busy enough for two people. This is positive - I like what I do, and I like getting paid. I feel good buzzing around even if it'll be twelve straight days before I take a whole one off. That pretty much sums up freelancing. Part of my cheerful buzz (aside from the coffee) is the little things.
Witness these supermarket cheapies,
they've stayed alive for 2 weeks - and, notice whats going on? That's sun coming in on them. Spring light!
Then, I discovered bloglines. Yeah, I know I should have known about it already. I no longer need to randomly click on blogs, just to end up to re-reading old posts.
Next, there's this almost complete, mostly seamed Cardi. It is designed so nicely that even though I generally suck at finishing neatly, and even though I'm sewing on this after 11 pm or around 6 am (not my optimum hours of operation), it is coming together beautifully. These are the arm/shoulder seams, with some sleeve flopped in. And there's the friendly folks at zipperstop, who have sent my way a custom length, burnt orange zipper that opens on both ends, for a very reasonable price, to sew into my satisyingly seamed sweater.
Lastly, this programming bauble. I mean, how poetic is this - thanks to my work, I have literally hundreds of photos online and in my computer but this is the one it selects for me.
