I Claim This Blog In The Name Of Molly Bee

Image
I've been thinking a lot about my blog lately. I haven't been blogging like I always did because it came to my attention a while ago that I have a very unwanted blog-stalker.  I've caught this person, twice, talking to others about stuff that they could only know by reading my blog,  but phrasing it as if I had told it to them personally and that we're best buds, which we most definitely are not. This person has taken big time advantage of me. They have no empathy or sense of moral decency.  I was shocked to discover, after all that has happened, that they would take such a rabid interest in my life, so I kind of shut down. 
I've finally processed the problem to the point that I have decided that the whole situation has more to say about the stalker's guilt and sad, small, life than it has anything to do with me, so I have decided to start blogging again as I see fit. The stalker has no right to information about my life, and I really can't understand why …

Memorial Day Weekend

First of all, here is this week's Diva Challenge entry. I like to put them at the top of the entry so she doesn't have to fish for them when she puts her slide show together. It was to do a monotangle using 'Bales'. I use Bales a lot in my work so I really enjoyed  this one.


The weekend started off so well! We planted Swiss chard, lettuce, walking onions and spinach in the kitchen garden.   Doesn't look like much but it runs all the way along the wall.  And pruned the jungle of bushes that had invaded the flower garden space. You couldnt' see the air conditioner because of that low lying little bugger to it's left and his identical twin on the right.
And got the petunias, flag holder and solar stakes in .  The Knit Chicks came over on Saturday afternoon and we had an awesome time. I got a lot of a pair of socks knit. Supper on Saturday night at La Vita Dolce  with Scott and Michael was delish. I went to bed earlyish with an excellent book (The Burgess Bo…

Which Schway Did He Go

This week's Diva Challenge was to use Maria Thomas' awesome new tangle 'Schway'.  It's probably all kinds of illegal but I'm going to cut and paste the directions here because it is just so nifty: Two simple steps make all of those arrows!


I thought about not posting this challenge entry  because, while I was so anxious to try this pattern-as well as take a much needed stress break, the resulting tile was less than stellar. In fact it down right stinks, but it did the job as a stress reliever anyway. My challenge rules are that I always go with the first attempt. Sometimes it works. In this here particular case....not so much.


So to apologize, I will share this one that , while unshaded, I am much happier with. It's one of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes. I did it on Friday night at a coffee shop while I was visiting with the Knit Sisters. You can double click on it to make it a little bigger.

If and when I get it shaded, I'll repost.
At any rate, thanks…
