74 hexagons sewn to another = 6%
I have not sat down at my sewing machine for at least two weeks. I have been in a knitting mood and have started my first sweater, a goal of mine this year. I have already made a couple mistakes resulting in the unraveling of almost all of it. But I’m trying not to get too discouraged and carrying on. I have acquired enough knitting needles and other supplies that I need to make a case for it all. I’m having trouble finding a pattern I really like but I’m generally apprehensive to make it up because I haven’t had the best track record with that.
My refinished desk has proven to be more of an ordeal than I thought. Why can’t I just slap a couple coats of paint on it and be done? I have done three coats now but even 5 days later, it’s tacky. I asked at Lowe’s what I could finish it with, maybe a polyurethane or something and they were no help at all. I’ve done some Googling and might have found a solution. It was also hard finding new hinges for the top. I thought about nailing it shut and sealing it but it would be nice to store things inside. I don’t think the things I got will work but it’s worth a try, I guess. Why couldn’t they make less complicated hinges in 1957? I need my desk though, it’s keeping the rest of my room from coming together.
My dad and stepmom are coming in a couple weeks and I’m pretty excited about it! I can’t wait to show them around and have them meet the doggies and all that. Menomena is playing in Raleigh the night they come in and I can’t decide if I should try and go or not…
