Rain? On August 31st? Really?

365 Project: Day 64

I was at an absolute loss for an idea what to take a picture of, and this was right next to my bed. I was so tired, I took the picture and went to sleep.

I was already in bed when I thought of taking a picture of a set of 8 toy blocks we have, the idea being 8 squares(d) equals 64. But I was not getting up for that.

Just as meaningless as any other number, but cool anyway.

Crochet Cat Toy/Scarf Tutorial

A while ago I got a truck load of yarn from my mother. The black yarn is always useful, and the turquoise and light blue were used in a boy’s baby blanket I made as a gift. Here I am, “stuck” with about 5-6 balls of grey yarn, without an idea what to make. I asked some friends and readers, and everyone suggested various grey animals: mice, elephants and cats. I already made an elephant once and wasn’t happy with the result (I need to think of a better design than the pattern I used). Mice can be cute, but I really like cats, so I decided to go in that direction. Maybe I’ll make a mouse for the cat to play with next…

I made the body flat because I thought it was softer and more cuddly that way, but it can also be made into a cute scarf if you make the body long enough. You could also make it into a pillow by making 2 body pieces, stuffing them and sewing closed.

So, here’s how to make her (it’s definitely a she):

I know that quoting from the Lord of the Rings is incredibly geeky, so I won’t. This is just a small park next to our house, but I always get that LOTR, Narnia [or your favorite fantasy fiction here] feeling when we walk by.

That, or that we’re about to find something from a CSI episode in there.

I didn’t have much time to think about the picture of the day today, I ended up realizing the day was almost over while in the car. So this is what I decided to photograph.

I had a lot of trouble choosing a picture from our visit to the Herzliya marina, there were lots of pictures I liked. In the end, I decided to choose the picture this one because it was the most balanced sky/seawise and I didn’t have to edit it at all.

Today is the last day of our vacation week, we’re looking forward to a calm weekend without going anywhere special or doing much of anything…

OK, I admit – not one of my best pictures. Definitely out of focus. But that was a good lunch…
