Work Clothes and a Thrifting Success

It's so nice to have a job where I leave the house a few days a week. I'm getting less afraid of downtown, and even a little interested in biking to work (I am a weak biker). Dressing for hot days and crazy air conditioning is a little difficult, though.

A few attempts:

Sunny Days, Easter and a Little Blue Chair

Phew, Portland finally gave us a warm sunny break from winter. Things are blooming, the air smells like warm flowers instead of cold dew, and our house is getting a much-needed air-out.

New flowers, open windows

Astoria and Spring Skirts

Finally, FINALLY, Brad has weekends off so we can relax and see each other. To celebrate, we drove out of town to Astoria and stayed in an adorable bed and breakfast.

All packed!

Another crochet project

So recently I decided I needed a footstool. I'd been scouring the local Goodwills (there are quite a few in Portland) with no luck. Eventually, I decided to stop in a consignment shop on MLK called Reviva, where, outside, I found a simple, though 70's-revival-ugly footstool.

Since I have been crocheting my little heart out on my blanket, I decided to attempt a cover for my stool. Considering I made up how to make this round, I think its coming out quite well ---look out for a picture of a finished project soon!

Beer and movies keep me craftin'

Sadly, another project of mine has seen little attention in nearly a year. My visual diary, which I hoped to completely fill before I leave this city, has been quite ignored. Hopefully I will return to it soon.
