on mixed blessings

those of you who've been with me for a while know of the long due renos in the madrid flat. i am happy to inform that they are about to commence, prior to  going through  stuff, discarding, selling and  packing. signing off for a while, but i may pop in to post photos.

the sampler belongs to my gracious neighbor's mother. she stitched it when she was 10 years old and it is incredibly charming. so is my neighbor who is going to take care of my plants.
be well and until soon.

“one of the mixed blessings of being twenty and twenty-one and even twenty-three is the conviction that nothing like this, all evidence to the contrary notwithstanding, has ever happened to anyone before"

rant alert

 everyone believes anyone can teach, but explaining things well is an art and not everyone is up to par. ಠ ಠ  that is why teaching colleges exist.
 never assume that the reader knows what you're talking about and can read between lines  because that creates information gaps. ಠ ಠ 
there are numerous instructions on line about setting up a ribber. there is even an instruction manual that comes with the ribber. however there are a couple of instruction lines missing from all of them.  ಠ ಠ
how to couple both beds is covered, but how on earth  does a beginner install the brackets to couple the ribber to the main bed?
after countless hours on line watching and reading incomplete info i found this jewel that teaches how to install the &%** brackets. save it, you may need it in the future.

feels better after venting.
have a joyous first spring weekend.
and happy birthday to me (*^▽^*) (*^▽^*)

who was i kidding?

spending all day debbuging instead of fun and games? NAAH.
a ps brush resized and applied it black on white. then indexed the file to 2 colors 100% difussion.
sent it to the knitting machine et voila! thank you Alice Schlein! as a weaver i've done the homework and do not face the problems m kitters do.
i am experimenting with some optic brushed i downloaded, combining them in layers and then flattening and indexing the files. fun is going to happen, trust i only have to gather courage set up the ribber and learn the basics.that means more colors!
(excuse the light dots in the image, its a knitted piece)
