What Came in the Mail Today!

Today the postal carrier showed up with some wonderful new editions to my Fiestaware colllection.  I got two new bowls and a mini disc pitcher in the latest color, marigold.  I actually am not a very big fan of the color, but you know a have to have a mini disc pitcher in all of the colors.  And I think the color will look very bright on the table next to the shamrock and lemon grass pieces.  I also, finally, tracked down some of the teaspoons and bought four.  I don't know which I liked more the teaspoons or just the fact that I got fiesta love in the mail.

Trying Not to Bore You, But...

I have not blogged because other than the invasion of cicadas, I have not been inspired to blog.  Though hearing all those bugs pleading for sex is interesting in a Wild Kingdom kind of way, I think that is really all I can say about it.  Besides red-eyed bugs are just a little creepy for some people. 

I have had the same kind of problem with my knitting, I am really not feeling inspired to knit.  I have been knitting, but not in that obsessive, MUST KNIT, kind of way.  Maybe the passion I experienced for making shoelaces just tapped me out.  I mean where do you go after making your own shoelaces?

I decided to make a few washcloths just to knit something.  I used up the cotton yarn I had purchased for the shoelaces and went to town.  Nothing goes together better than hot pink and lime green as far as I am concerned.  Not only that, but I love how a hand knit washcloth looks after a couple of washes.  I am hoping my knitting mojo picks up soon, or I may have to change hobbies and start bug watching.
