As usual I start making something and need a tool I don’t yet own (although there can’t be many left in that category).  Of course, the hardware store down the street doesn’t carry circlip pliers, either internal or external, so it’s left to internet shopping to save the day.

A close friend of mine pooh-pooh’s New Year’s Resolutions, he says you should make changes in your life through-out the year, whenever you think of it.  I agree (being fond of change, in general), but I think it’s good to be reminded periodically to examine your life, just in case you get caught up in things and forget to take a step back, look at the big picture and decide on any additions and/or alterations.  My list will get longer, but my first resolution for this year is to open an Etsy store this Spring.

Pearls are so beautiful and strange, the way they reflect light is fantastic.

This is the last thing I finished today, then I went to dinner with friends and met the wool-pusher‘s father, who is visiting from England.  Miss P herself is easy-going and endlessly generous, with an incredible array of talents ranging from dancing and fiber-art through managing singers and teaching.  She and her dad are full of funny stories about their lives, crazy wolfhounds, and adventures all over the world – they are the kind of family you want to be adopted in to, and it was a great ending to a good day.

These are some of the bits that consumed my day.
