Monseiur Norman

My blogging mojo seems to be in hiding this week, so I'm sorry for the lack of posting. I'm hoping this weekend I'll be able to do some thrifting and maybe that'll coax my mojo back out. In the meantime here's a quick little post of two new prints that I just added to the shop! I hope you like them.

Thank you all! (And an apology)

Thanks so much to everyone who downloaded the Tweet card today! I never in a million years thought so many would want it and guess what, all 215 of you exceeded my document bandwith! Woot! So, my sincerest apologies to anyone who tried to download the card and couldn't earlier. I've upgraded my account so it shouldn't be a problem again. Download the card to your hearts content my friends! (Special thanks to Ez at Creature Comforts for featuring my card on her beautiful blog.)

A Successful Mating

So, I didn't stay away from the computer entirely this weekend. I hopped on the computer for a bit to list this new print in the shop and did some new drawings for the shop. However it was a mostly computer free weekend and it was great, Very relaxing. Of course I didn't accomplish as much as I would have liked but I'm pretty darn pleased with that mated sock up there! With the help of Flo and our trusty DVR one of my orphan socks got a mate. I love this yummy yarn and since I finished the pair yesterday they haven't left my feet. It's Noro Silk Garden sock yarn, #252 in black, lime and blue. Just your basic sock pattern, perfect for this gorgeous yarn. I adore the rustic look and they're so deliciously soft, I'm wondering why I didn't finish them sooner. They are a bit slippery though which is not a good combo with my general lack of balance. I have to be very very careful when walking on the wood floors but it's worth it.

I also spent about three hours Saturday working on this tunic. My first attempt was a complete disaster, it was a shapeless mess that was way too big. My second attempt is getting closer to something wearable but still a little too embarrassing to share. Today, I'm a bit under the weather so I'm going to relax, finish the laundry, take a nap with baby M and try to feel better. Here's to a productive week!
