Sometimes, there just aren't any pretty pics to post

Remember those arm warmers I was making for myself? Stalled, due to this situation:

(Toddler+lovely bamboo crochet hook left down too low=disaster. The photo's not great, but that hook is snapped right in half. Note that it's the only hook I had in that size.)

Oh, and last week's batch of syrup? Looks like this:

(Not your usual pretty blog pic, is it?)

oooh, the gritty realism of a New England Winter. It warmed my heart to see these photos. I have many similar ones of my own.
Can you use the syrup as a charcoal-based sketching tool at all?!

What a BUMMER! I'm sending good karma your way, can you feel it? :)

Luisa said...

Oh I feel your pain it's been an ugly work week. Hopefully something pretty will develop tomorrow :)

Happily, I have moved on...

It may not be pretty but it is life! We all have these moments for sure, it will be pretty again next week : )

Ya.. but just remember.. It takes both rain and sunshine to make a rainbow. There's always going to be those *less than perfect* times !

happy day!
