sewing still...

For Glaucia, from Brazil! For our ATWQ swap. I love it! it's a pinwheel and I made it.

Quite Contrary...

When did I become the person I am today? Was it a result of self-preservation? Or was I always me. Did I build these walls? or was I born surrounded by bricks? Have I always masked my emotions? Or was I replaced by this mask?

I feel...I cry...I long for touch and tenderness...so why am I incapable?

I wish to comfort...but I am broken. I am sorry there's just nothing here. But yet I am an optimist? Naive and living in a fairytale where anything is possible?! and why not! why can't dreams come true? If I work hard enough and believe enough?! Why do we have to be destined to make our parents' mistakes?! Can't I want more!! Shouldn't I demand it?!

I feel as though I am at a crossroads...and I'm terrified of making the wrong turn. I know I'm the only one who can navigate my life...but if I accuse a quitter and then give up myself, am I not a quitter too?

I came this close! to finally meeting the ladies of the FIBER COLLECTIVE...this close because as I was getting out of the shower, I heard a knock at the front door. It was my baker sister. She wanted to use my kitchen to bake a cake. I couldn't kick her out so she set up shop...sort of speak. Off I twittered my misfortune...hoping I might still be able to catch the tail end of the fiber goodness but it is currently 5:58 pm as I type this and my guest is still here. I will not be making the fiber collective meet once again...sigh!
I am back to the original reason this blog began...crochet. I've been very inspired as of late...I LOVE when that happens! sometimes all it takes is the newest issue of Crochet today! to flow the creative juices...
Just finished the baseball afghan...I say finished because the circle is done...not the baseball stitching but I will...soon.

I also started the afghan for my SIL...she's due in August, so I wanted something light and lacy...Mission Accomplished!

I love the way this is coming out! No pattern...my own creation.

okay...enough for today. I am here...I'm okay...and I will be back to normal in posting and online. Off to enjoy some tres leches cake and watch game 5 of the NBA playoffs

14 down...

As of Sunday June 7th, 2009 I've been married 14 years. It seems so odd to say! I still feel 17. How can I can ALREADY be married 14 years?! with a son going to highschool?! at 6' tall?! I seem to be stuck...
Any one else with me? where are you stuck?

You must click the link! the dress is gorgeous!


I'll call you Anita from Florida

This is the 3rd installment from the ATWQ (around the world quilt) swap. This one belongs to Anita A. from Florida...and I think she likes it.
I like how I'm learning so much with every one of these blocks I make! I hope to not duplicate anyone of them and learn a new technique for each one. This one was curves! much more difficult then I thought it would be!

Remember at the end of last year when I was making an afghan a week? Well I do (and so do my hands!) I started hanging out with some ladies...and they each started individual projects with particular purposes in mind. We met mostly weekly to work on our sed projects. Well after Christmas we kinda took a break. Most of our work finished, expect for my friend Jan. but as of last weekend she completed her very own afghan with almost no help from me!

I'm so proud!
and a bad blogger! seems not only did I miss my 100th post, I also missed my 1 year blogiversary! I suck! but I will come up with something spectacular to make it up to me. My only hopes is to not forget my 14th wedding anniversary this Sunday!
