The only time I ever feel like doing some crochet is when I see the fab stuff you make. Then I remember how much it makes my hands and wrists hurt !
Shame about the red tank.
Hope it's a fab summer. ;-]


Oooo... I like it much better in your version. :)

I have got to learn how to crochet. That looks great, Bron!

And great choice of song to display on the whatchie thing. Jeff Buckley does my favorite version of Hallelujah (and there are a lot of them.)


Emma - It's going to be a long, hot one (summer, that is) but hopefully it'll be fun too!

Thanks, Andrea. :) I'm trusting that I'll like it as much when it's complete!

Carrie - Yeah, I usually find that I like the version of the original singer/songwriter the best. After all, who'd know the song better than the guy who wrote it? :) And yes - you really DO need to learn to crochet. You won't regret it!

Ok, first: Sorry to be late checking in but I had a toothache. Second: it's your blog. Say whatever you want to say. Stating your feelings (and the facts) is not manipulation or taking advantage. It does show that you trust your feelings. Third: Boy am I glad you didn't get the 65 they promised you. It could have been a real horror show and it sounds like it turned out great! Congrats on the autographs and pix! Sounds like you have a real talent for this teaching thing, and that's pretty rare. And fourth: the KNITTING! You look great in the red. Just get a nude bra - strapless or racerback or crisscross straps. I think that Brioche stitch thing is super looking, but in the summer it would feel like one of those weight loss programs where you wrap yourself in 20 layers of Saran Wrap. I personally would look for something with lots of YO's or drop stitches to let the air through. You'll already have the bra for it, right? Let me know what you find. I LOVE that yarn. But not this month. And finally: I honestly don't think I've ever seen crochet before that was actually fashionable. Flattering. En le mode. You'll have to excuse me now. I'm off to look at all your FO's. I am SO IMPRESSED with that crochet. Really.
Blessings. wj


First, don't worry about being "late", Willa Jean - it's not like I'm must-see TV! hehe (Hope your toothache is much better!)

Yeah - I know it's my blog but I still feel a sense of responsibility to those reading not to be too...what's the word...sensationalistic. I'm going to try for a happy medium in the future. :)

i don't know if it's a talent for teaching or if it's just that I really DO remember what middle school was like - The drama! The injustices! The mean teachers! The substitutes with bad breath! (I chew gum or mints throughout the day - nothing irritates me more than bad breath!) Quite a few of the teachers at the school really ARE dried up old prune types (although I'd never admit that to the kids!) so I have some sympathy for their plight. :::grin:::

The 20 layers of Saran Wrap thing might not be too bad on my power walk. After all, I DO need to lose more weight! hehe

::blush:: Thanks for the crochet kudos. Keep your fingers crossed that it actually looks "en la mode" when it's ON me!


Your French vine crocheted thingie is looking really great. I've always loved lacey crocheted toppers.

Congrats on the MP3 player. Now you'll have to list your "Desert Island Mix." If you were stranded on a desert isle, what 50 songs would you want to keep you company (assuming your MP3 player was solar powered, or you found a cache of batteries in the hatch!).

I went to my daughter's middle school talent show last week and at the end, the sponsoring teacher was talking about "the children this and the children that" I could see the KIDS rolling their eyes. Some teachers are so out of touch. I bet you ROCK!


Marie - I'd ONLY be shipwrecked on an island with a hatch! (Maybe I'd find my very own Sawyer there too. hehe) But I'll definitely have to put it on shuffle & list some of my fav songs...(if something "Partridge Family" comes up, will you still love me??? teehee)

LOL - I think the only time I call the kids at school "children" is when they're screwing up & I'm getting ticked. THEN they know they're in trouble!
