Random Nibbly Bits*

Because it's just that kind of day...



Slowly, but surely, I'm making some progress...

Although, I need to go track down a copy of What About Bob, because I'm getting the feeling that "Baby-Stepping" is becoming my inadvertent way of life...

As evidence I present to you - Exhibit A: The BabyStepping Granny Square

Second Attempt


I'm obviously not there yet - but I'm happier with this one than the first (even if I was too lazy to weave in all the little nibbly ends.) Thank you to everyone who commented and emailed with such great advice!

I did dink around and reduced the number of chains that I used between clumps (don't you love my use of the technical terms?) I've still got to say, the tension thing still feels awkward. Oh well.
Baby step. Baby step.




Exhibit B: Progress on the De-cluttering Front.

Cleaning Out My Closets


The good news is, this is my little wagon stuffed to the gills with stuff that's going to the Salvation Army.

The bad news is that the kitchen still isn't done. Sigh.
(and with a few winter coat exceptions, everything in the car came out of the kitchen. Ugh...)

Baby step. Baby step.





And I just have to ask - do real photographers have to put up with stuff like this???





*It just occurred to me that I should have named this post "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly." I'll let you decide which is which...

Look at you go! Loading up the wagon with goodies for the poor.
And What About Bob is one of my favorite movies of all time.
"I"ll be quiet."
"And I'll be peace." HA HA AH AH AHAHA!

Your "nibbly bits" reminds me of "wobbly bits" in BRIDGET JONES...so I giggle when I read 'nibbly bits' =]

And I wish I had your drive to clean out my 'junk'. I keep putting it off and putting it off. =/

Oh, yeah. I had a fluffy calico trying hedge in between the camera and that baby ball as I was trying to photograph it yesterday. Aidin finally had to hold her while I snapped the pictures.

And keep a detailed list of all that donation stuff, chiqua! It will come in handy next year at tax time (Says the woman who didn't have enough to itimize because she didn't write down what she took to goodwill! Argh!)

I'm a huge fan of loading my wagon up and getting rid of stuff too!

Man I loved what about bob! I haven't seen that in forever. Though I'm a big fan of the good the bad and the ugly as well! ;)
