This is basically my life right now.
In other news, I ordered new business cards. They should be in pretty soon.
As you all may know, the rapture has passed.... but not without any repercussions. I lost quite a few family members over the course of one month, and it's something that I meditate on while crocheting. Going through my late grandfather's belongings, I found a nice wooden chair by the dumpster. Instead of throwing it away, I chucked it in the back of my car. Now it's being covered by beautiful grandpa-reminiscent yarns. Once it's done I'd like to leave it in a nice place. He always liked to sit, listen & talk to friends.
This has started a whole new yearning for curb-related crafts. I also was given this near-death wooden flower stand. Once it's finished with a new skin, it will be donated to the Hartford Farmer's Market.
We have so many ideas for this summer.... we just need a cohesive plan. Also, if anyone else has any other free time during the week to meet, that would be great. Sometime during the week I am going to put together an online photo album of all of our work.
I finished most of the baby gifts... making baby things is so much fun! Everything is so tiny and quick to make. My friend is due in July, so I'm going to take a break for a while and finish everything up for his very first New England winter.
I'd like to get some sort of conversation going about the recent New York Times article on Yarn-bombing... if there are any other crews reading this PLEASE comment with your thoughts.
Lastly just another HUGE thank you for all the donations we have been receiving. We will probably never have to buy yarn ever again. Please feel free to contact us regarding donations of yarn or things you think we should bomb at firstname.lastname@example.org
