Misc.


  • I got a new sewing machine. Cost me less than an Xbox 360 (which is now no longer in the budget... good thing I haven't seen a game I really want for it yet) and it'll do for a year or two when I'm ready to upgrade (ya and that's when Matt will need a new Time Trial bike, right)


  • Remember when I said I was sorta unfocused and was looking for a new challenge? Ya, well I decided I want to make a quilt. Yes I have a quilt top that I made 10 years ago, but it's sorta sloppy and I want to get "good" at quilting. I spent the weekend trying to get more precise in my piecing skills


  • FYI: if you think that this area is full of yarn shops (and it is) there's probably twice that many quilting supply shops... notice I didn't say fabric shops. If you make clothes, I'm stuck with Joann's which pretty much sucks. (Unless I go into Philly). Being near Lancaster County, PA gives you a lot of options for quilting supplies however.


  • The angora sweater is moving along. One more sleeve to go.


  • I haven't tried posting new pictures since Gena chewed thru the USB port for the camera and my motherboard is wonky so I can't use the memory card


  • I can't get Interpol's Evil out of my head


  • Since I check Trust But Verify several times a day (it's not like I'm obsessed. Really. But it really is the most useful site to keep updated on all things Floyd), looks like all 370 pages of Floyd Landis's lab report will be available on Floyd's site. Now if only I could read French and understand all those little numbers.


  • I'm thrilled the Tigers beat the Yankees (sorry Nicole)


  • Happy Birthday Nicole! sorry you hit a deer and the Yankees lost


  • I've decided I've got a "thing" for Clive Owens


  • I really like chocolate cake with peanut butter icing.


  • I don't like the fact that my size 12 jeans don't zipper up anymore, which means that I shouldn't be eating chocolate cake with peanut butter icing (hey I did use reduced fat peanut butter... that saved like 2 grams of fat!)



Happy Knitting!
