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.

It seems like a lot of you sweep the dirt out the door. I've done that. But not in this house. Since the door leads to the garage, it would just make me a mess in a different place. I've probably even done the sweep under the rug and I know occasionally I do the "sweep the carpet and then vaccuum". If there is a cleaning shortcut, I'll try it.
Now a days, I sweep and vaccuum the floors then wash. Both dogs are wonderful shedders. It takes less than a day to have giant mean dust bunnies in all the corners. So, I do a regularly corner sweep check and pick it up and toss it. Here, if you move the dust bunnies into a pile in the middle of the floor, it's just begging to be walked through for redistribution.
Now as I have a ton of clothes that need decluttering, I want to know what you do.
This past weekend was a little rough. Saturday we got news that my ailing uncle had passed on. No condolences are necessary. We weren't close, I barely knew him and even though it sounds cliche, he's not suffering anymore. Gram and Sweet Mama had a hard time so I spent most of Saturday with them. GirlBeast spent the night with them, which reminded me of when my Gramps had died. I think I spent every night for a month with my Gram.
Sunday I really really worked on going through the pottery shop. It's not easy and that's just hard to explain. But it's what I need to do to move on. HERE is a page of pottery stuff. Email me if you want something. I'll wheel and deal too. Let's clean it all out so I can get this done and move on with the happy fiber stuff.
Finally a good thing. I got gifties over the weekend which were very cool and lifed my spirits. Thank you ladies. And I cast on for a new project. Ok, maybe I cast on for other new projects during last week, but that's another story. Knitter's ADHD at it's finest. The pattern I'm jazzed about now and I swear I'll finish this one this week before casting on too many others is by Adrian. I'm test knitting her super cute Totoro Bonnet pattern in her awesome hand dyed yarn:
I can't wait to tie this on BabyBoogie.
