It was a bit of a revelation when August came around and for the first time I realized I do not need to buy school supplies. Work supplies, maybe. But not school supplies.
I am still in the deadzone, without a job (still looking). I have been spending the downtime trying very hard to get back in shape (running), and making baskets.
A market basket filled with items from my dad's garden:
And a melon basket filled with items from my collection:
And a pair of socks I made from Wendy Johnson's new book, Socks from the Toe Up,
Diagonal Lace Socks in Malabrigo Sock, colorway Persia:
Wish me luck in my shaping up and basket making ventures. I hope both will be successful...
