Why is the really nice part of Fall always so blooming short? It feels perfect for about 5 minutes and then it feels like years of this:


Wet, gross and cold. Eddie the beagle hates rain and refuses to stay out long enough to complete his toilette so I have to keep checking the enviro radar for a break in the weather so that he can finish it outside instead of finding a dark corner in the living room.

So for years I’ve read other blogs who take part in what seems to now be a ritual of writing every day for the month of November. It has some kind of hip short form “na-no something or other” name, but as I’m no where near hip enough to use it, I’ll just let you know that I’m up for giving it a try and if you subscribe through Bloglovin’ you’ll be seeing me frequently. I’ll understand if you want to take a break, John gets sick of me at times as well – but I thought it would be a good chance to maybe get a few of the UFO’s on the blog as a sort of catalogue for myself. I think I have enough that have collected over the many (many…) years to put a different thing up every day that I’m making by hand and it’d be great to dust them off and give them some love. I should also put up a few of the bigger things I’ve finished before I completely forget some of the details. As I go, I should put a post it note on the back with the eventual inheritor so the kids don’t fight over them when I’m gone. Just kidding! Well, only sort of kidding…… my kids are animals.

Sneak peek of the terribly unprofessional photos to come in the month ahead.


Have a great Hallowe’en – Darth Vadar is pretty excited to go out and collect his loot tomorrow night.  Why am I not surprised that the forecast predicts 70% chance of rain……….

    I think we are seriously leading double lives! I just started documenting old projects too (albeit just in a cheap spiral notebook) until I can get them online in order to keep details straight. Bad memory… ugh.

    YAY for daily posts!!!

      So cool! Totally double lives – I found some WIPS in the closet during the dig out last month that I had completely forgotten about, and it was like Christmas!

    There you go…..yours can be No Po Mo….November Productive Month, what a great feeling to see so many things finished.
    It isn’t good to be bored, so you can start lovely new projects at the end and some of the finished things might be good Christmas gifts, win ,win.
