If you live in the Midwest, I don’t have to tell you that it’s been raining here for days and days and days. The grey skies are a color sponge that remove the vitality of everyday objects and leave them subdued and low.

The Outside Life is now become the Inside Life; autumn is officially upon us, early and strong.

After I get over the grey, I realize how much I love this time of year. This is the time when the projects begin in earnest. This is the time new things are learned and wallowed in.

I’ve been wandering around the Photoshop landscape a lot lately. It is so amusing to see what it can do:

Here is a *sketch* for the CeCe I’m working on now – I wanted to see what it looked like in brown.


Almost works ;p

The actual yarn I’m using is Calmer in *Coffeebean*.

the Fabulous Fluffa is also knitting this baby in the same yarn and she writes: “I think that Rowan should rename this color of Calmer “chocolate truffle” instead of “coffee bean”. YUM!

Believe me when I say, this woman knows her Chocolat! She introduced me to the glories of dark chocolate in Paris – I did not realize that you could get Chocolat Bars in percentages of Cocoa (more being better!) We started me out at about 40% and by the end of the week I was, hmm, at 72%? This color makes you want to D.I.V.E. right in!

Quote for today from a Chocolat Website: “Cocoa is a precious commodity; it should be treated with respect.”

BoogaJ has been kind enough to eat some chocolate
and write about it for us!
