Playing Catch Up

Posted by Nanc

All weekend I kept meaning to sit down at the computer and type up some articles. Really I did. But it just didn’t happen. Things got in the way or I was tempted by the beauty of the interweb in it’s other incarnations (re: blog reads).

So now I’m playing catch up because I do want to share with y’all, my faceless lurkers. (Um, not that you don’t have a face. In fact, I’m sure you do. It’s just that I’m guessing that I’ve never seen it. Except, of course, in the cases where I have. Like the SnB gals. And my hubby. And perhaps some other folks that I know, like my family. But hey – I’m getting off topic; and a little paranoid now.)

Just go to the ‘read more’ and ignore my crazy rant. please?

I like stuff. You like stuff. Everybody likes stuff. Right? Well, of course! And today’s stuff is extra special.

Funny story. I decided that I’m finally ready for Denise needles, so I order them online. Not two hours later I’m talking to my Bonez and he mentions that he ordered me the same Denise needles that morning. Gha?! What a sweetheart. So’s I cancel my order and patiently wait for my anniversary interchangeable needles.

Okay, so it might not be a funny story at all. But I got my needles today, so there! And they’re pretty darn swell. I played around with ’em a bit and swatched for my niece’s poncho on the 11’s. [purrrrrrrr] Smooth action.

I’m using Berroco Lullaby in Willy Winky (a purple, blue and green blend that’s v. soft and cuddly). The pattern that I’m looking at is the Harlot Poncho. But you see where I’ve made some yarn-over drops (the lacy, kind of open part)? Well, I kind of like that too and want to incorporate it in the design. Plus, I’m thinking of changing the neckline. So pattern-schmattern, it’s only a suggestion.

Happy Birthday, Bonez!

Posted by Nanc

Today is my sweetheart’s birthday. Instead of a picture of him from his childhood (I’m too lazy/medicated to scan a pic), I give you what he would look like if he was a South Park character. Ta Da!

Matty Bonez, may all your PEZ dreams and wishes come true.

What? You want to make your S.P. character, too? Then go here.

Now what?! You want to see mine? Okay, here ya’ go.

Happy Mac — and Matt

Posted by Matty


One of the items that came back from New Hampshire was a Macintosh SE. Manufactured in 1990, this little computer is made of hearty stock. It’s my newest computer project.

This is the first Mac that I’ve encountered since college (Windows/Unix boy), so I am looking forward to figuring out what exactly to do with it!

I’ll be updating this article as work progresses, so check back often.

Fly the Friendly Skies

We just got back from vacation.

Vacation was great. The only issues that we had were at the airports.

Nanc and I used to both travel for work. alot. But time passes, and things change especially the airlines.

This is an open letter to the airlines.

Yesterday was Crafturday. Crafturday is my favorite day of the week!

What is Crafturday? Well, my child, let me explain. Crafturday is when one gathers with their crafty friends on a Saturday and together they summon the power of the craft. For good, not evil. It’s a CRAFTy satURDAY. CRAFTURDAY!

Want to know more? Only those pure of mind and spirit may continue…

Lurve me tender, baby

Posted by Nanc

It’s hard to believe that a mere four years ago, Matty and I stood in front of (an) Elvis in Vegas and got married. Yep, Viva Las Vegas indeed!

It’s been great and we’re trying to keep our vows to not step on the other’s blue suede shoes, be together on Christmas so that it’s not blue, and to be each other’s teddy bears. U-huh. [visualize the lip curl]

Now give us a little suga’, baby.

Don’t fret, Nancy will be updating soon. She’s been out with a cold for a few days and hasn’t been feeling like writing anything. In case you were wondering, her throat hurts, she has a fever, and she coughs an awful lot. Sick, sick, sick. She is eating chicken noodle soup, juice and cough drops. I expect that she will be up and around very soon.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.
