I have been a slacker on my SWAP. This WIP picture shows an outift which I have since finished. I made a matching top for the skirt, too. I’ve done nothing more since then. That means that I have completed one jacket, two of four tops, and one of four bottoms. 2/5 of the way […]

Baby tomatoes. My desk didn’t stay tidy for long.

We have baby tomatoes. Usually we have ripe tomatoes by now, but we haven’t been very good gardeners this year. It’s the last week of summer school — well, the last week for the class I’m teaching, not for the class I’m taking. Then I’m thinking of taking a week off. I’m not sure quite […]

I got all the articles sent in and approved yesterday morning, and then did a bit of housework. Not a lot, but there’s much to be said for clean counters, freshly washed bed linens, and groceries in the pantry. I put orange blossom scent into the lampe berger, rather than filling the house with the […]

My husband had to get up early to go to work, so I was up at 4:30 working on my educational website. This is one of those internet ventures that has no clear path to profitability. I think it’s worth doing — it grew out of the Dextr xanga, which still gets thousands of visits […]

My work days are getting longer and longer, but I did stop last night, have a salad with grilled chicken, spinach, cucumber and oranges (yum) and watch It’s Complicated. While watching, I tidied the living room, just so I wouldn’t feel like a slacker. This was necessary because I have not just assignments I haven’t […]

It was hard to go to choir practice last night. I was swamped with work, had grading to do and people waiting on stuff from me, not to mention trouble with my Photoshop class homework. But I closed up shop and trudged through the record-breaking heat to the church, with no dinner and not much […]

Last night I did the buttonholes for my SWAP jacket. You see it here unpressed, with the inner seams not yet finished but still quite close to being a Finished Object. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of work I have this week. This is good, by the way. As long as I […]

More knitting took place chez fibermom last night. I’m making the Flying Diagonals cardigan from Lacy Little Knits. I added waist shaping to the first piece, but didn’t make any notes or anything. So now I’m doing the second piece and trying to match it, hampered by the fact that the stuff is lacy enough […]

I may not have roses this year, but I do have tomatoes.  This is our very weird tomato garden. I think they’d be happier in the ground, frankly, but my husband planted them on the patio,and then decided to move them into the garden — keeping them in the pots. My husband is a very […]
