I finally made something useful with some of the yarn cording I made with my handy dandy magicord machine. Ok, tell me, does it look like a handbag? I had to improvise because I had the multicolored yarn for so long that the color has been discontinued so I matched a solid yarn to finish it up with. I think I like the combination better anyway. I brought dad home from the hospital this afternoon, so tomorrow I hope to find some time to work on my geranium picture and hopefully get it done soon. I have something else in mind for my next project but this one HAS to be finished first!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted! Honestly, my dad got rushed back to the hospital again, he's been in the hospital more than out for the last month. I brought him home again a few days ago and I'm hoping this time will be better - crosses fingers and toes. I haven't gotten my latest project finished yet but included a picture of it in the current stage. I have been a little bit obsessed with my Magicord machine the last few days instead of punching. I found it in my craft closet while looking for something else and started playing around. There is something soothing about turning a handle and having yards of knitted cording come out the other end of the thing. Problem is, I now have tons of the stuff with no plans for using it on anything. Ok, that's not quite true, I braided some and sewed it to a pair of thongs I bought last year to cover the straps that I didn't like. I know, I know, I desperately need a pedicure and have some r e a l l y ugly bunions. At any rate, this is what I've been doing between hospital sitting, job hunting and very impatiently waiting for Clay Aiken's new CD and upcoming concert tour information to be announced. (PLEASE hurry up, Clay!!!!!! I miss you so much!!)
