Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Pictures and Words
The saying goes - "A picture says a thousand words."
So would that mean that a thousand pictures say one word?
What do a ton of crappy pictures say?
Do I want to know what it says?
I think I need a professional photographer on call. And while we're at it, a make up artist. Ah hell, lets go all the way and say I want a body double to stand in for me too. Not just any body double. The double needs to look like what my minds eye thinks I look like, not the strange frumpy woman in her 30's that hides out in my mirror to scare me.
It took me more than 2 years to finally learn to use the digital camera well. Just when I think I can take a good photograph the thing takes a suicidal leap. I've had this new camera for a few months and I'm about to take the suicidal leap. I'm so lazy. I can't believe I have to learn to use a camera all over again. I'll show you all my feeble attempts and maybe you can gleen from it an idea of what the leaf lace shawl looks like.
Right now I'm thinking the best picture I took of the shawl was the first one:
But I wasn't satisfied and I took some self timed pics.
Really I don't move fast enough to warrant a blurry photo. In fact I try really hard not to move at all if I can help it. I'm not kidding. I really am working on perfect the frozen statue pose. I think it should be considered an artform.
I have a few pieces that actually show that parts of the shawl at least came out ok.
Maybe this one is good?
But I lost my head taking it.
and this one is the wide wing shot
for which I somehow looked like the hunchback of Notre Dame in all but this one. My excuse for that is that my boobs have gotten so big and heavy I hunch over. HA! At least it's an interesting excuse.
Ok. That's about all I took.
Does it say anything?
Do I have one word from a thousand pics? and what is that word? Wait, don't tell me. I don't want to know.
And just because the obsession continues...
I bought this pattern and am trying to figure out which of these yarns I want to use for it. You didn't think I'd be using stash yarn did you?
