Vita Brevis

Today is my 37th birthday.

I am thankful for Facebook, and my friends that are close at hand. They made this birthday not so bad. I miss my mom, and my grandfather and grandmother and even my dad a little.

I am working on a swap project for a ravelry group called the The knit girls and it's a burlesque swap so what am I knitting? Betty of course! It's a fun knit it's taken me less then 2 weeks to knit it, and I finally got all the stuff together to finish it today. I finally found the 'tricot' to add the ruffle which I really think it needed. I taught myself to knit and purl backwards today! There is one section of the g-string that is 6 stitches in garter stitch and man was that going to be rough... So knit backwards!

Carpe Diem

First Post

Hi! Well I opened this blog over a month ago and still haven't posted. I thinking this will be my quiet blog, not linked to anything... The title says it all. Art lasts forever and kind of why I love all the art that I do. And life is way too short. Both my parents died young (65 or less) and I fear that I will follow suit. I would like to say I take better care of my self then they did but it's not always true. But I try. I have some stumbling blocks in my life right now. I am a little dis-satisfied with my job- I just feel like I'm not as good as I used to be and I really would like to have child... but no insurance kind of puts a damper on the second one, and if I moved jobs I might get insurance but then what do I say sorry I have a kid now bye? ARGH. I wish I didn't have to think things through and be a responsible adult.
