So I have entered a time of great personal difficulty. In the coming days on this blog there will likely be blabbering. There will definitely be the making of many, many things because that is what will save my ass.
What I am going through involves my marriage and I can only conclude one thing--
Marriage: Here there be dragons.
Let us get on with the making, shall we?
On Saturday Miss Natalie threw us a little shindig, "Crafts and Cocktails" (we got right down to business and did the latter first).

There was also Tami, who had to leave fairly early because, although I gave her shit about it, she is a responsible mom and had to go do responsible mom stuff.

The highlight of the evening was our rollicking karaoke session. I didn't get any pics of that. I was too busy performing crowd pleasers like "Total Eclipse of the Heart." (Please, Bright Eyes, just turn the fuck around.) It wasn't long before we all sang songs together. I got the pleasure of choosing our closing number. I thought Alanis's "You Oughta Know" seemed cheerful enough.
Here's a godawful shot of the project I worked on:
I embroidered a butterfly. At the time, I didn't see the symbolism. Now I'm thinking there may be something to it.
