2012, Weeks I don’t even know
It’s too telling that I managed to keep up with this project (more or less) until the last month of 2012. My picture taking has dropped of dramatically in December. I’ve learned, or perhaps just confirmed for myself, that these kind of projects, wherein I have to try to remember to do something every single day, just aren’t for me. I’m a forgetful person. But even though I didn’t completely succeed at this project, I did end up taking a lot more pictures than I otherwise would have, and I’m glad I attempted it.
Here are some pictures from the last two weeks.
Dec 13 – I also re-fashioned this sweater. I’ve had this cardigan since I was in college, but there were massive holes around the cuffs. I kept it, figuring I had to do something with it because it is so soft. And last week, I figured out what to do with it! I cut off the sleeves to a 3/4 length, and sewing bias tape around the raw edges. It’s imperfect, but it did bring new life back to a favorite sweater. Yay!
Dec 16 – I picked up these gorgeous half-yard swatches in Healdsburg last weekend. I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with them yet. Placemats? Napkins? I especially love the retro looking little squares.
We’re heading to Denver today to spend Christmas with Sean’s family, and my family is coming to Oakland to celebrate New Year’s Eve. It should be a fun and festive holiday season, and hopefully I’ll remember to take enough pictures that the end of the year won’t be lost from my 2012 photo round up.
Thanks to everyone who kept following me and my photographic adventures this year. I know the blog has been pretty silent. There have been a lot of changes going on in my world, and I’m unsure how to keep sharing things here, but somehow, I don’t think this space will ever disappear completely.
