Quick reminder: I am a dork

Dear Donk,

This is your friendly reminder that your friend Finny is a dork.

Shocker, I know.

Case in point: My Document Duvet for our InStitches-along. It's done.

I KNOW! I'm a total dork!

I couldn't stop myself because there has been a bit of fabric in my stash, courtesy of our friend Caro, that has been calling my friggen name ever since it showed up with my kick ass messenger bag (Caro - what would I do without you!?).

I had to use it. It's wicked cute.

Plus, it's green.

And it's just been sitting all bundled up cute in my organizey craft closet giving me those come hither looks every time I went in there to get something off the printer.

Anyhoo, here it is, done. I know we have until the end of the month, but you know how I am. In a word; Aggro.

It's been coming to work with me for a week now:

I'm having a minor love affair with it. No longer are my "Bills to follow up on" and "overdue thank you's to put in the mail" shoved into a ratty manila folder in there. No, now they travel in style. It makes me less angry when I have to call Real Simple about their negligence (and it is significant) when I can pull my six months worth of correspondence with them from this beeooteeful bag.

Anyways, that's the update. Now I have to call Real Simple. Otherwise now known in our house as Real Stupid, Real Annoying, Real "Simple", Real Complicated and Real Fucked.


P.S. I did post to Flickr despite my mild retardation with using that thing.


  1. You are so awesome. Have I told you that lately? I am SO working on this tonight. :)

  2. love your document duvet. i wasn't thinking that i needed one, because i don't work out of the house, etc. BUT, i like that you can tote your thank-you notes in something pretty. i could do that becuase I am WAY behind since the baby was born.

    love your fabric.


[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.
