So in November when I restarted the blog I mentioned how my problem was writing essays instead of posts and planning way too much.
This is a rewritten draft from two weeks ago, which I called White Christmas in anticipation of the first snow (which totally didn’t happen, it’s a nice spring day out there). I talked about handmade but not knitted Christmas gifts. I drafted it on the tram with the intention of adding photos from my home computer and pictures of a cool gift I was planning to craft that day. Unfortunately, the project failed badly and I had to find another gift for the recipient, and I just forgot about this post.
So today when I wrote my previous one I realised this was still sitting in the drafts category and decided to keep the part that’s more fitting for a New Year’s than a Christmas post anyway. So here goes:
I made several photo calendars, which means I looked through all of last year’s photos. That was fun, but also reminded me that I really need a photo tagging program because at least half my photos were of yarn or knitting. Any recommendations?
I found a few I’d forgotten about (like the “sewing kit” circulars) and a bunch of nice pictures, which didn’t all make it into the calendar. Here’s a few favourites:
And here are a few that aren’t really calendar material but make me chuckle:
These are signs in Basle, Switzerland, showing the way to the museums or homes of famous people who lived there. Well, the first three are…
Here’s another one:
Nice street art, whoever did it!
No baby bottles.
This one doesn’t make me chuckle as much as it makes me smile:
That was my 2011 in pictures (the heavily edited version without all the yarn). I hope you all have great memories from this year and have an even better and happier year 2012.
It’s a lovely day today, I have a new haircut and I’ve got the TV running in the background with a rock concert marathon that’s getting me into New Year’s party mood. We’ve had Peter Gabriel, Spandau Ballet, The Rolling Stones, and right now they’re playing the Freddy Mercury tribute concert. Tonight I’ll be celebrating with friends, a laidback night of board games and laughter… I’ll be home next year.
Happy new year and enjoy the fireworks!
