Took some pics of the recently placed NAP measuring sticks at the small dam in the woods, they don't look straight but I guess they must be.

Once back in the studio, I lit a fire, took care of some tedious bankaccounting, checked my blog and caught up on other peoples' blogs, found an interesting guy over at Nancy's, George Carlin; I'd never heard of him but I think he's very entertaining, he certainly doesn't mince words and I've been listening to his performances whilst knitting a tiny woollen blanket for the old bird-king. A smaller version of one I saw over at Jude's 'I really Like This' in her side bar.
|the EyePatch, 31x50 cm or 12x20in|
I finished this cloth last night, there's a bit at the bottom that was made during D's eyetroubles and the entire piece now holds that memory, so I call it the EyePatch.
You know how you stop noticing stuff, because it's there all the time; here's the original Hazemannetje that's in our bedroom gathering dust. When I cut out the Hazemannetje for the cloth, I didn't consciously think of him and it took me a while to acknowledge him! Hazemannetje belongs either to my husband or to his youngest sister, he can't remember exactly; he does remember he used to play with him and two others, Coco a monkey and Kabouter Flappie, a gnome. A lot surfaced today, and you know what it's not over yet.
