my favorite feet


I’m going to see my favorite feet- and the friend who walks around on them next week. What to pack? BESIDES yarn, that is.

These were some of my first socks and first dyeing experiments.

Work blows. the only thing worse than working in a dysfunctional unit is being a patient in a dysfunctional unit. Two more nurses have left. I applied for another job today. I have a numb spot inside where the sore spot used to be.

Burned Out

WE are all burned out, I think at work. The mix of lazy, ambitious, caring, calculating, hard working, self rightous, well meaning and short staffed has worked its toll. Many nurses are, or are planning on leaving. Or talking about planning on leaving, in the way nurses do. A waste. I certainly am burned out. I’m trying to leave. You would think with the nursing shortage, that HR could process things in a more timely fashion. Hmmm. Here’s a quote:
“For all you days prepare, and meet them ever alike: When you are the anvil, Bear. When you are the hammer, Strike.”

Obsessed, again


Mermaid-San! I think she needs some beads. Pattern from Runo.

Some one asked how I make the faces- I follow her directions and I wing it. Re-did baby dolls head. I just couldn’t get past the fact that he looked microcephalic. So I sewed him a new head, 25% larger that the old one. New pic next time I down load. Not sure what I’ll use the old head for. Making dolls means that your WIP are pretty ghastly- dismsmbered bits, some of them smiling up at you.

What breed is Annie? I dunno. Sort of chihuahua, I think. Definitely a dog. We had the vet check on that. Although she does use a bunny cage as her crate….
