Pile of Boxes

When I get up I try to get some stuff done outside before it gets hot. So this morning after I did some stretching, I worked on crocheting my raffia hat so I can wear it tomorrow. It's coming along nicely. I went to Flickr and looked up crochet raffia hat and found a few, but not nearly as many as I would have expected. Maybe there are not a lot of artists crocheting with raffia anymore. It is harder to work with than yarn because each strand is only about 4 or 5 feet long. I need to remember to take my camera outside with me and take some photos to show you guys.

I've noticed a lot of bloggers now doing give aways if you comment on their blog post. I understand that is one way to make your blog appealing to search engines and to get lots of comments. But seriously, I would love it if you just comment because you feel moved to do so without having to feel bribed to participate. I know a lot of you are reading these posts. But I only seem to get regular comments from about two people. What about the rest of you? I know you are out there; I can hear you breathing.

At any rate, I have tons to do before the fair tomorrow. I haven't even found my skirt yet. I think it's in one of the boxes behind me so now I have to rip my room apart, and that's always fun. Then I hope the skirt will actually fit my ever expanding waistline. Wish me well. If you don't hear from me again it means I'm buried under a pile of boxes and can't get out.

If it weren't for you, I'd think I'd hallucinated this whole blog. Then again, maybe I hallucinated you as well.
