Sorry about your bf, cookies  Cry  I have some angel food cake and blackberries though - a big slab of cake is only 100 cal, and berries are good for you....

I can't go exercise, the super low humidity today (4%) is making me sick. I took the day off so I can craft, but now I may go and take a bunch of drugs and lie on the sofa and hope I don't get a fun sinus infection... maybe I will dye some things and then do some handsewing.

Feel better soon, PW!  I can't imagine the humidity being so low...of course, I don't really ever know what the humidity is here, except in the summer when it's really high!

Angelfood cake sounds REALLY good...and so do blackberries...

The blackberries are frozen, but that is fine for cake topping. I'll slice you up a piece after the berries thaw....  Smiley

Tomorrow it may snow (yes, it is 80F/26C right now) so I'm hoping that will make my sinuses happier (even tho I hate snow). Here is the local weather station, illustrating the humidity: http://www.eol.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/weather.cgi?site=fl&period=5-minute&fields=tdry&fields=rh&fields=cpres0&fields=wspd&fields=wdir&fields=raina&units=english
I love humidity. Some day I will retire to a tropical island and bask like a lizard. Smiley

Oh, and I found a fun chicken kitchen towel at the thrift store, I think I will dye paint some of the chickens (it is white with black outline chickens, like a coloring book) and put it in my shop.

Haha, me too. The humidity can be suffocating here on the Gulf. But currently the weather is gorgeous...unnaturally chili for this time of year.

Preview time!

This item will be going up in my shop as soon as I can re-open (not tonight, maybe tomorrow, maybe longer).

"The Little Calorimetry That Could."



This is a handspun Calorimetry made out of 100% wool yarn. It was a chunky yarn, so the gauge is bigger, with a funky chunky texture. The buttons you see are bigger than a quarter! It fastens with two buttons (a modification that I believe pixiefarts came up with, see here The picture shows your choice of buttons, but the purple and blue ones are kind of washed out by the flash (strangely, the colors in the calorimetry are pretty true). The buttons are all some kind of vintage, and I know the brass one on the left is decidedly old. I'll send whichever buttons you choose loose and you can stitch them in place to custom-fit your head, or I can sew them on for you if you're completely hopeless with a needle and thread.

This will definitely take three points, because it took hours. and hours. and hours. and hours. and hours. It's called "The Little Calorimetry That Could" because it gave me so much trouble. I carded the wool by hand to spin it! The staple is a bit short, so be aware that there's some risk of pilling.

Miss V, that caliometry is gorgeous! Love the yarn, it looks like a Noro colorway. Wink

I added an owl necklace to my shop, plus a pair of miniature domino tile earrings and a pair of miniature mahjong tile earrings.
