I’m not gonna lie, its been a weird week. Kinda good, I mean Fall! I love Fall… but kinda blah… maybe cause that rain they told us to expect never came. Maybe I just need more chocolate. I know I really need to get myself organized. If I do that over the weekend, next week will automatically start out better.


I am still finishing my granny square sampler. Every stitch I add makes me love this hodge podge of granny squares more than before. Well. Except for the thousand tails I have to weave in. Good lord. Its like its own pompom.

 In the meantime, here are some links that are making me less blah today:

I have been on a mission to find the perfect sweater. This may be it.
Amy Karol on Creativebug! If anyone could ever convince me I needed to make my own underwear, if would be Chicken. And seeing her on video is the next best thing to visiting her in Portland, so I’ll take what I can get, go check her out!
My favorite sketch from last week was this one. Why is it so fun to draw pens? I’m trying to challenge myself to draw more representation things, because they’re hard for me.

And lastly, I treated myself to this book and this weekend, I plan to make something from it to tell my own self that I am awesome.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

    I briefly contemplated joining in the granny square sampler project, but then I thought of having to weave in all those ends and it immediately put me off. I hate weaving in ends. But man, the blankets are so pretty.

    LOVING that sweater. But the link goes to Amy Karol?
    Am happy that perhaps I can buy one – that you didn’t score it thrifting! 😉
