Holy Crap

So, let us harken back to the days (ok, it was only August) when I blamed AfricanKelli for getting me involved in BackTack, blogging and just generally trying new things. What I'd like to do now is change "blame" to "thank", since I'm just a little overwhelmed with the goodwill and fuzzy friendship resulting from all of the above.

I mean, first of all, she got me to save my sewing machine from the dusty depths of the garage -- something to be thankful for in itself. Since the time she talked me into this project I've saved the aforementioned sewing machine, set up a dedicated space in the house for all my crafting supplies, started and maintained a blog, documented the progress of my garden and crafting projects on said blog, met a few new crafty folks through Backtack, muscled my way through a way-over-my-head chicken purse pattern, learned about Blackwork embroidery, received an incredibly lovely and generous backtack bag and, probably most importantly, created a new bond with my dear friend, AfricanKelli.

So there, I got all warm and fuzzy on your asses. But you know what, I'm weird like that. Plus, I'm a little cracked out on cold medicine right now and can't help it.

The only sad thing in all this is that the battery for my digital cam needs recharging before I can post pictures of the amazing Backtack bag I received today from Splityarn. Ugh, damn it. But wait till you see it -- it is pretty friggen cool. I am so using this bad boy for my laptop now. No more stuffy Timbuktu bag for me. I'll post pictures soon. Charge camera! Charge!


  1. YAY! I love Jess from Splityarn. She is so crafty. I can't wait to see what she sent you.
    And right back at ya on the warm and fussies. :)
    Love you Finny,

  2. Jess! You have to post your backtack surprise. You are killing me in suspense.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
