PeeWee says thanks for the well wishes. We're home now and aside from a little limp where she's got a few band-aids you'd never know she'd been in the hospital. Kids are so resilient. I feel like going back to bed and she's on the go!

Feeling like I'm climbing up a greased wall around here.

Or a really good fake.
In the oven right now is banana bread, mmmm, it smells good. We went down to the French Quarter Festival this morning and when we got home the bananas were looking a little worse for wear so I decided that banana bread was just what we needed for breakfast tomorrow and whipped some up.
I've been in domestic mode this weekend. I got a bunch of tea towels and have been stitching away.
Yes, the floorcloth in the kitchen is polka dotted. It goes with the whole seriously retro kitchen theme.
This one is a little bit of yellow linen I had laying around. I like the chickens. It needs hemming next. I think Wednesday is going to be sewing room day, unless we keep PeeWee home (keep reading for more on that)
More polka dots in the background! This one is the traditional stem stitch, not as happy with it as with the backstitch I used for the others. I think I would need to be stitching with much finer threads than I am using to get the effect I should be getting, so I abandoned that idea.

I promise yarny goodness is coming soon. Until then enjoy this bit of goodness. If simply for the shoes... (figured you couldn't miss the hair, impressive as it is)
Back in the days of the Soviet Union, the Soviet Red Army had an official choir composed of male soldiers and musicians. It still exists. The Red Army Choir performs throughout Russia to this day.
Now consider the Finnish rock band called The Leningrad Cowboys. A little while ago, they held a concert in Russia, in which - to the screaming applause of Russkie teen-agers - they got the Red Army Choir to join them on stage for a performance of "Sweet Home Alabama." In English. You couldn't make this up.

I'm chugging away on the sock I showed the other day. I got most of the foot finished while getting my hair colored this morning. It was good timing too because it was a serious grey hair weekend. Whoa! Big Brother... well, he was being an irked 14 year old. We're good now but it was a little rough there.

I bought some patterns from Aerie Designs. They are some cute. This one is the mini greyhound. I decided to tackle this one before the life sized greyhound. (I know I had a rant about crochet patterns, but I do crochet. I just don't want to think I am getting knitting patterns when I am actually getting crochet patterns.) This one came with some little outfit patterns too. It was well written, impressive with so many parts involved. I used some Cotton Tots for this, a yarn I really enjoy. It's easy to find, super soft, inexpensive and gets better with age. I used a ball and then some.
