Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

Proof of Progress

Progress and revisions have been made on the big list of projects.

knits: earflap hat, irish hiking scarf in progress
crafts: pretty fabric push pins, a lunch sack with a freezer paper image
practical: spice rack, utensil holders, shelving
sweets: vegan blackberry-smoosh cupcakes (invented recipe) revised to mupcakes!
chickens: door on the coop

The Irish Hiking Scarf is coming along nicely. Which is good, seeing as it's a gift! I'm about a third of the way done and totally in love with cables. I just need a few hours to get serious about it again. The last time I knit on it I fell asleep. Good grief.

I did a quick fix to take care of the shelving. It's not all that pretty. No photo.
The vegan-blackberry-smoosh cupcakes were procrastinated too long. No more blackberries. However, mupcakes! were born (see previous post) so I feel like that's a pretty good trade off.

The door on the chicken coop I can take absolutely no credit for. It was all Galen and his assistant Molly. I got a few looks telling people we were "rennovating our chicken coop" ... but really, it looks about a million times better. Much easier to get in and out. And no raccoon attacks. Not bad for a $2.50 door.

Plus, the chickies look so happy and cute in there (for chickens).

And lastly, I was wrapping up this gift for a friend today, and I just thought it looked pretty. Like, so pretty she wouldn't mind the banality of the gift inside. But really, what do you get the girl who jets to a new city each day? It's not like she wants to carry a toolbox or a tea kettle with her wherever she goes!
