Well, most of the damage has been cleaned up and my email and Ebay are all ok. Unfortunately although my facebook account has been frozen, I'm having absolutely no luck with getting any response from them on how to get it back.. In the meantime I'm using a new account Rachelle Sewsable Crosbie. I'm slowly adding my friends and am missing my Mafia Wars and Frontierville games which were getting fairly good on stats etc. Although this isn't quite starting from scratch, it's still hard. Onward and upward though; if I don't get the original account back at least I can still get my new one closer.
Some news on the home front, we now have a decent lawnmower
Pity we didn't have it before Ian's birthday party. Our smallest boy is now 7! He's not much smaller than his brother though. Doing mostly well at school, though the week following his party he wasn't doing so well with attention. We blame that week on his party followed by another biggish aftershock. Ian had a great party though; only immediate family but that's what he wanted. I made him a tornado cake, which he rather liked
On the crafting front I'm starting sewing again. I've got lots of tops to start tomorrow, I've also got a skirt cut out from gray wool which is A-line and I'm decorating it with some sewing tape printed with 10 inch tape measure lines. I think it's going to look really cool. I'll probably start fitting it in a day or two; today was not a good day for fitting. Tomorrow will be better.
Tomorrow is also the start date for Tour de Fleece; technically if I go with the tour's timeline I think I start at some ridiculous time tomorrow night; but I think I might have to start slightly early. I've chosen my fibre, there are a couple of things not on the photo including some silk hankies and the Merino/silk blend I'm currently spinning.
Knitting; some of you are probably waiting for this. Not a huge amount happening since the mittens were finished. I've cast on for Andrea's Shawl, but can't go any further until the second colour arrives from The Loopy Ewe. It's been 3 weeks now and I'm getting worried, but they've had stuff take up to 5 weeks. If it takes that long then there's no way I'll have it finished in time for Camp Loopy. I really hope it does arrive in time; but here it is so far
