Hello all who might still be reading this LJ. :-)

A very merry Christmas, happy holiday, and happy New Year to you. I haven't been too prolific of late, but I do stop by and check my f-page on a fairly regular basis.

Baby J had a wonderful first Christmas! His morning was so great that Christmassed himself out and crashed mid-morning. He's an adorable little guy--and he knows it! Hard to believe his first birthday is coming up in just over two weeks!

Geo is doing well and loving his new role as daddy. He also got to present a project he worked on, restoring the silent film Ramona, at MoMA in November.

My work/income situation has become somewhat uncertain; the theater is going dark in January, and I as part time hourly (since Baby J came home) will not be getting any hours probably until March at the earliest (January dark, February programming light). In the hopes of bringing in a little extra spending money, I'm placing some of my crochet items up for sale. I currently have several baby blankets, a "popcorn and cranberry" garland, and a pink ruffle scarf available. If anyone is interested in anything, would like more information, or would like to make a request, please let me know. We can discuss particulars. :-)

I hope everyone is having a grand holiday/end of 2014. May 2015 be joyous for us all!

P.S. I miss you, LJ peeps.

So that baby blanket I entered in a county fair in July? I got a blue ribbon! )

Enter something in a county fair. I just got back a little while ago from entering one of my crochet baby blankets in the Orange County Fair. I'm not expecting a blue ribbon, certainly, but I would be tickled if I got an honorable mention or something. We'll find out on Thursday.

I've never entered anything in a fair before.

I have several crochet projects--baby afghans--that I'd like to sell on Etsy. Does anyone have an Etsy store who could give me pointers? Blogs or forums to check out? Also, how do you pronounce it? Eeetsy (long "e" like eBay), or ehtsy, like "Betsy"?

I'll post a little more, perhaps, but I need to get this store going to help start putting aside some money for an adoption placement. If it's going to happen, it's going to be this year. It will affect my work schedule, and therefore my income, and I'd like to have a little something coming in to help off-set the change.

Or if anyone is interested in said "affies" (as my brother and I used to call ours), drop me a line. You can ask [livejournal.com profile] kalquessa if you need a reference. :-) Both of her kiddos have one of my creations. (Her eldest actually has the dubious honor of being the recipient of my very first completed crochet project ever.)

Last weekend, I sold my first crochet project. It was to my mom, true, but I think it was indicative of the really good price someone can get for one of these projects and I can still double what I spent on supplies (hours of working on it was not factored).

She purchased it for the baby shower of one of the next door neighbors I used to babysit. Yeah.

It measures about 30" x 30" and is actually peach in color, though it might look pink in the picture. I'm thinking about pairing this same yarn with a white yarn to give it an orange dreamsicle look.

Now that she's told me she opened her b-day pressie, I can post picture.

I might have to make one for myself )

My weekend in Ohio )

Upcoming thespian endeavor )

Okay, so, enough babbling from me for now? Yeah, probably. It's overcast and rainy out, and the office is, as usual, very quiet. I'm still in limbo with my medical stuff, but I'm going to try to get to zumba class tonight, if I can get the grocery shopping done.

Quite possibly the cutest thing since His Fourthness )

Geo and I are heading to Ohio, so if I'm incommunicado (and late on my long and rambly commentary), that's why.

I'll be watching SPN with my mom this week. Should be fun!

I finished up another couple of projects while Geo was gone this weekend.

Here's my latest completed crochet project. I think of it as the Olympic affy. Also possibly called the Vancouver affy. I stitched most of it while watching the Winter Olympics last month. ("Affy" is what my bro and I called our baby afghans when we were little. And yes, I still have mine. It's been stretched many times larger than it's original dimensions over the years, and I use it like a pashmina-type wrap in the mornings.)

In actuality, it's a half-shell blanket because the clusters look like half shells. I'm not often impressed with myself, but I'm extremely pleased that the edging worked out as well as it did.

It measures 34" x 27", which is a bit smaller than the pattern indicates, but I think I know why that happened. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the correct gauge on various patterns.

Also, new shoes )

I'm considering purchasing a $7.00 birch wood crochet hook. That's just nutty.

These are cool, too.

If you'd told me a year ago that I was considering spending $7 on a crochet hook, I'd have said you were crazy.

On the up side, for those who are into "buying local" or buying American made . . . If I invested in the birch hooks, my projects would be 100% North American: yarn from Canada (or the US), hook and artisan (and I use that term loosely) from America. :-)
feliciakw: (Family)
As I mentioned last week, my Italian uncle, Uncle J. has passed away. It's not really surprising; he was in the final stages of Parkinson's, and if he was aware of what's going on, he knows that Aunt J2 died a few months back. We will miss him very much, but as Geo (whose father died of PSP, which is very similar to Parkinson's in many respects) says, Uncle J was already gone.

Still, it is very strange and sad to think that members of my generation, my cousins, are now parent-less.

Thank you to those f-listies who have expressed their condolences. I think I've been remiss in responding to them, and I do thank you very much.

Project Linus )

Must finish packing. We've got an 8-hour drive to Li'l Bro's.
