Friends and Friviolity

I am so-o lucky to live near the Bay and have such an awesome view. More important
is are my good friends who love to indulge me by taking me to the park. It is beautiful so far this Fall/Winter and I am going to get as much outdoor time as possible.

Pirates, Blankets and Toys

Busy little me; I love knitting so much. Started some skull squares for a baby blanket. Knitted my first wool Tricorn Hat for me Pirate events haven't felted
before so this will either be the first of many more to come or the last! Also,
started "Dot" from "Big Book of Knitted Monsters" by: Rebecca Danger. I love using
all the left over fiber to make these awesome toys. My grandkids took Flossie and Bossy home. So, now I need one for me. :)

Saturday afternoons

BF & I are sitting and choosing scents from a perfume kit my sister gave me.
It's awesome to sit together and build something in time & the aroma
with it. I picked out a base scent & 5 other oils & he deicded how
to combine them. It is sweet & delicious. We're doing an olfactory orgy!!
We call it Dragonfly; it reminds me of sweet meadows, sunlight, daisies
and local violets. Ahhhh, Summertime!

BF bought these way cool & chic gardening gloves from a neighborhood
craft sale. What a find!!

My favorite painter Liudmila Kondakova

I can imagine all the wonders of Paris and the idea of dining al fresco
and having the passion of the magnificent city in the background is more
than I can bare. Knitting on the West Bank at Sunset. What a fab Idea!

SAGITTARIUS: Sag floats out of her body and has to laugh at the stupid way she bought the farm. After somehow BREAKING the tunnel of light, she absolutely refuses to return to the body, since she's been trying to get out of it for all these years (via clumsy accidents). Because Sag is immensely curious about whether the so-called organized religious have any validity at all, this stroke of luck leads to some amaaaaaazing lessons, until, alas, the astral folks tire of her and trick her into returning to Earth for the duration.

How Sagittarius deals with death... oh, so true!

Fingerless gloves

Love the SteAMpunK look and have altered my corset for an awesome fit. These gloves
I made with that in mind. They are also good for Pirate affairs and Renaissance Faires. Making more so I have them to take with me when I go to events this Spring
and Summer. I love the bright colors of the Ribbon even though the light reflects a
glimmery shine in real light it is a blend that can take your breath away.
