Whatever Happened to “Eat Your Celery?”

Well I missed posting yesterday, but I’ll make up for that with lots of fun stuff today!!

I think I mentioned my church having VBS this week, but I didn’t tell you about some of the fun stuff we did. On Tuesday night during craft time I had much fun making a bug mask/headband/hat. I wore it to work the next morning (I work at a nursing home, and the residents loved it!!). It was so funny to see different peoples’ reactions! Some people ignored it all together (as per polite behaviour), some people giggled right out loud (these were my favourite), and one lady came right out and asked me what I had on my head! It was a fun morning.

I’ve told you about my Doctor Who fetish. One of the older Doctors wears a piece of celery like a corsage. A while back I decided to be like the Doctor and wear one myself. My mom laughed at me, but it was fun. Well the other night she was eating celery again and dared me to wear a piece to VBS. I, of course, accepted the challenge.

And now the big news: (drumroll, please)

I finished my tatting pattern!! The one that I’ve been rambling on and on about for the past few days. I’m so excited!! It’s finished! I used a lovely variegated yarn that just looks stunning in this pattern (from Mary Konior’s book Tatting with Visual Patterns). I have no idea what I’m going to do with it, though… I guess just enjoy its loveliness 🙂


Oh ya, and one more thing: while looking for yarn for our next projects, my mom and I found a British shop (I know, so exciting!!). Mom bought me British tea. I had some tonight – yummy!!

*happy sigh*

I wore my new skirt today 🙂 The occasion was my church’s VBS (Vacation Bible School). I’m helping with the 5th Grade girls’ class – in which my sister is most conveniently situated. We had Bible lessons, played games, cheered, sang, and ate yummy snacks. All in all, much fun. 

I made dinner, too – taco pie. I didn’t get a picture, but rest assured it tasted quite as it should have.

Ooh! And I started a new tatting project yesterday!! You probably laugh at me because this makes 3 projects going on at once, but you know how it is…one at a time gets too tedious. I like smaller scale projects that can get done in just a few hours. I’m hoping this will be one of those. I’ve been wanting to make this pattern for quite some time now, but haven’t been able to find the pattern. Cue the library. Yup, they had the lovely pattern book. It’s Mary Konior’s Tatting with Visual Patterns, and it contains several quite useful tips that I never would have thought of. So if you want to get me a present, now you know what I want!
