I'm having one of those weeks where time is getting away from me. When I woke up this morning, I was convinced it was the weekend. It's probably wishful thinking on my part, but there is work to be done and I don't know how I could have casually wiped three days off my calendar. While I have an extra dose of coffee and get this day back on track, I have a few random tidbits to share for . . .
THIS AND THAT
~ If you haven't already discovered it, let me introduce you to Stitch Maps. JC Briar has taken knitting charts to a new level with graphic displays of knitted fabric outside the constraints of the traditional chart grid. Wow. Stitch Maps makes it easier to visualize how a stitch pattern will look when it's worked - the ebb and flow of knitted fabric. There are different options available for viewing stitch patterns plus subscription benefits - all kinds of potential fun. If I go missing for any length of time, I'll probably be over at Stitch Maps.
~ The other day my brother and I were reminiscing about the good old days when we actually looked forward to retrieving the mail. There was the hope and anticipation of a letter or a postcard - news from family and friends. Just by chance I stumbled across Postcrossing. Send a postcard and receive a postcard in return - a modern day way of generating fun mail amidst all the junk and bills. Sign me up. I can't wait to get my first postcard in the mail.
~ If you need a shot of color to brighten your day, check out the color patterns at these flower farms. Amazing.
A few weeks ago my daughter, Luz, rescued a tiny, malnourished kitten. She diligently bottle-fed him, and now he's an energetic, bouncing bundle of fur.
Luz is very generous. A couple of times a week she shares her kitty and brings him over to spend the day. Crazy cute.
