Ruža could not keep her hands off this little doll with @rebeccagreenillustration accessories added to the mix. I've said this before, but that's a pretty big deal. She generally shows absolutely no interest, and you could say apathy, towards my dolls and work in general. Sigh. Ruža, don't you know this all started because of you?! Anyway...a special day in many ways.
This is a stash busting effort, just using all the colors I have and tying them randomly together...but now I can't help seeing little landscapes and seascapes. I have lots more to knit, and I'm afraid it's going to turn into a much more conscious effort to be my landscape afghan. I wanted something effortless, but it seems I'm just not capable. That's why I tell everyone my one and only "hobby" is untangling knots. It's truly the only satisfying thing I can do without thinking about anything.
It's been a long while, Instagram. Happy new year! I'm spending this lazy, snowy day processing the hickory nuts I harvested this past fall and listening to ghost stories by M. R. James, narrated by David Suchet. SO good!
The kids at school found a lifeless bee on this board and covered it with leaves, as one three year old told me, "SO NOBODY EATS IT". Then we had a short service followed by more swinging on the tire swing. And fighting over the tire swing. Then I left exhausted, but happy.
