Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


It must be a Virgo thing, but a well-organized stash and work area is a beautiful thing to behold. Good work!

Oh, and you have inspired me to go on a fiber diet for the year! Thank you!

I received your card in the mail today, thank you and what a surprise.

I'm seriously considering doing a knitter's almanac of my own. I already have four months figured out - February is socks, March is lace, April is a shawl, May may be aran afghan squares. I'm not sure how this is going to work, but we'll see where it takes me.

You've inspiered me to do a little organizing this weekend! jane

The night before I read about your organizing, I had just started to organize my office/knitting studio and have been making plans with my daughters to do this all around the house. The basement is our biggest job and is supposed to become a studio for all, with the girls' help.

Your organizing is further inspiration. Thanks! (I immediately went across the street to the bookstore and ordered the Studio Book! - can't wait til it arrives.)

How could 4 delicious days off disappear like this! I am supposed to go back to work today. What an imposition!

Well, at least, there is a part of me that feels like that. There is another part that’s saying "whew, thank goodness for the routine of work - and I wonder what new books are going to come in today. And happily - it’s only a 3 day week. I could go forever with 3 day work weeks, I believe. And all joking aside, there are Things I want to do today - like posting these before and after photos:

(don’t you just love B&A photos?)

On Sunday my life went from this
to this
From this
to this
and from this to this

Hmm. There is another set of b&a photos - but blogger is clogger today.

It’s not a studio, but it is a step in the right direction. There are fortylevendyhundred other things I feel like writing about - well, there are about 3 things, but when I write about 3 things it tends to use up 44,000 words and I haven’t time to write that much today. I found an interesting challenge in the January issue of Weight Watcher’s magazine. It’s a mapped out program for walking 1/2 a marathon - 13 miles. I know I can walk 4 miles because the round trip from home to Robert’s Landing to Melvin’s road and back home again is 4 miles. But that’s an ambling walk and I’m tired afterwards. I like the idea of being able to walk to town. I’m not at all interested in competing or even in being "challenged" by someone else - especially not some magazine editor. But I adore the scheduled, mapped out program for building up to something really big. That step-by-step (;>) project to go from here to there in a year is tremendously appealing. I’d like this to be in addition to any other workouts I do - something new and different. But tonight the really cool jazercize teacher will be at the gym after work and I don’t want to miss that class - so - if I’m to do day 2 of the program - I have to do it in the a.m. And so. I am off. But I leave you with Ms. Horoscope today - here is the one for my Virgo sisters - click on it to read yours.

VIRGO (August 23 - Sept. 22)I have a friend who is a complete and lovely Virgo, and her 2007 is shaping up to be a changey year, full of adventure in the quiet, controlled ways Virgo loves. People forget that Virgoes do love an adventure, because ya'll are more quiet and personal about it, which is not a bad thing. Your 2007 To-Do is a part of that: Do indulge your wandering gypsy side. There is a part of every Virgo that wants to be free and go forth to learn, and see new things, and get the chance to know more than anyone else. SO GO DO IT. You have a big brain, and you often are a know-it-all because, well, you do know a lot. (Capricorns give you a run for the know-it-all money). This year you'll have a life-changing move, it's in your chart. Make it matter. Your 2007 To-Don't: Don't let your quietness (about finances, or emotions, or sex, or a problem you have with your car/job/spouse) keep you from getting help if you need it. Even if it's just reaching out to a friend, or going to a good mechanic or doctor, don't keep something quiet that could be helped by talking.
