No WW for me today, just not feeling like it.  So instead I bring you some photos of my latest mini project.  Pattern on Rav (blogger link).  It all started with an obsession with crochet thread….

Week two of our little project (still unnamed):

Week 2: Left

Becca found the 20 note in a book of awesome short stories.  I dug my paper up out of the ground… it’s newspaper that was buried way back when (ok not really that long ago) to cut down on the weeds that would grow through the new beds.  This scrap and another was all that I found in that particular bed.
