My newest addiction

I held out for as long as I could.

I really did.

Promise.

I kept telling myself that I had enough things to waste my time with that I did not need to add anything else.

And I believed it.

For a while.

And then I started seeing the cutest things posted on people’s Facebook pages…

things they’d bookmarked over here…

Have you been there before?

evil, evil thing. Winking smile

Sucks up your time, seriously!

But the things out there – oh, my. Candy for my brain and eyes.

things like this

breakfast ring using buttermilk biscuits...want.

And this

outdoor lighting

 

or this

genius

It’s so much fun.

I may never do many of the things that I pin over there, but it is a great way to relax at the end of a busy day – scrolling down the pages, looking at all the beautiful things.

If you’re already addicted too, I’d love for you to follow me! (I’ll follow you back – I’d love more ideas!)

If you’re not… well, I can’t be held responsible for the time you’re gonna lose if you decide to join us… but it sure is fun!

Come on over and join the party!

How cute is this?

I am giggling with glee – I finished my very first knitting project.

I am giggling because … well, when you see what it is you will understand.

I mean, seriously, can you look at that and NOT giggle?

Yes, it really is a Polly Pocket blanket.  You thought I was kidding in my earlier posts when I said that I was making one. Nope. Not kidding.

But…

to redeem myself, it is the first thing I have finished; it is the first thing I’ve ever done the Purl stitch on; and I did it ALL start to finish on my own. From casting on to binding off.

So, even though it is a whopping six by six inches square (thereabouts) I am very proud of it.

And more importantly, the Little Princess will be thrilled when she sees it tomorrow morning.

Hee Hee… I knit Polly Pocket blankets. (and I’m sure I’ll be knitting more before very long, if the Little Princess has anything to say about it)
