Alright, I admit it, I gave up. I had one last project to finish and I flat ran out of steam. I couldn't get the yarn in the right color, no matter how hard I tried to find it, and I wasn't satisfied with any of the "alternate" projects I'd started to replace the original teddy bear that I set out to make.

So, I did the unthinkable, I bought a baby shower gift. I know, I know, its very uncrafty and impersonal of me, but I am able to justify it because the gift comes very highly recommended by all the mommies at my office, it comes from a nice small online retailer and I think that my friend will really like it. I'm also tucking a "tiny" version of my original teddy bear project into the bag to add some type of handmade touch to it all. For those of you out there who might need to resort to similar measures -- here's a great alternative baby shower gift when your handmade projects just don't shake out.

Oh, and some bastard animal/insect has destroyed one of my big pumpkins. I was going to include a photo of the massacre but the sight of it sent me off the deep end and into the garage looking for my pick ax. Instead, let us enjoy the last remnants of an intact vegetable garden, shall we...

[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.
