Hi folks!...

Yeeees, it's been a while. But we've been updating my website, www.MsFledermaus.com. And there's some great stuff we've been playing with.

Otherwise, all is well. The yarn is still an obsession. Castle Greyskull is getting a new paint job and a garage. I plan to make an outdoor pizza oven this summer. The Mines are...well, the Mines. But things are manageable.

And I hope you all are well, too...

*snuffle snuffle*

I thought I'd check in a bit...I have a wicked headcold. Stuffy and horrible. I should post a bunch of new, exciting stuff, but my stuffy head feels like a David Lynch movie. I think I need a lie-down.

But I miss you all so...I'd give you all a big old hug and a kiss, but well, you know, the geeeeeeerms...

*hack hack hooey*

So I've been a busy busy Maus...

...Mostly making things like this:P7080037

I felt like actually playing with some of the yarns I've been making this summer. And I'm very pleased by how they came out.

Otherwise...things happen. Sometime soon I should post the Saga of the C.H.U.D's for your amusement and entertainment. There's pictures. And city workmen giggling. If you see my Facebook, you already know all about it, but it would be fun in one big happy chunk of weirdness...

A short list of unrelated things...

There is a huge sinkhole in the road outside my house, growing and growing. I think it wants to eat somebody. I was thinking of putting up a sign next to it, saying, "Danger! Molemen!" and an arrow right next to the hole...

I have loads of fluff. Loads. And I bought 2 more balls of yarn today. I like to think of it as future insulation...

The Mines are still very, very Mine-y. So far, all we really hear are, "The beatings will continue until morale improves." Soooo, yeah.

There's loads of flowers outside. I keep adding more. It's beautiful.

There's also loads of stuff that needs doing. Now including that Moleman sign. I think I need a small vacation to get to it all.

But otherwise...things are doable.

My sweet Shamu, making greens disappear!

Hello,my dears, and Happy New Year!

I'm never, ever ready for the new year. Not ever. But this year I'm trying harder to be accepting of a new chance to make decisions and try new things. This year I'm going to try to make the yarn business a better thing, and to write more often. Oddly enough, I've been writing all kinds of things all over Zuckerberg's Folly, which I still kind of loathe but most of my best and beloved pop up there, alas. I also thought seriously about self-publishing a small book about the dollhouse at the Mines and my extremely odd stories about it all, but I was shot down when I asked for permission. Which just means...I need my own dollhouse to write terrible stories about. Heh. Hehheheh...

Meanwhile, for most of my sweet knitting friends, here's a lovely photo of some yarn I just put up on my Etsy shop. It's just so cold out, all I want to do is make soft yarns and knit myself a cocoon until spring comes back to us all...Zebra, lotus 004

Adventuress Kat Tchotcke...

This drawing room is the favorite of Mrs Tchotcke's younger sister, Kat Tchotcke. But don't let the opulent tea-gown fool you; she's one of those " modern adventuresses" we read about in the paper. She hunted and killed that mouse-rug, all on her own. Rumour also has it that she round-kicked a Duke for getting,"fresh"...Tchotcke Kat

Amity Tchotcke, get your gun...

Apart from the designer babies, little Amity Tchotcke is the youngest of all the children. Her twin sisters call her, "Clammity", because they're horrible people. Years from now, Amity will be known as, "Calamity Tchotcke, girl sharpshooter" at Buffalo Ben's Tiny Wild west Extravaganza. But for now, she sits quietly with her doll and dreams of wearing cowboy hats...AmityTchotcke

Another attempt...and success!

Here is the piano room of the Tchotcke house--well, one of the piano rooms. There's another one upstairs, so people can have duelling pianos if they wanted to. In the background is wee Emily Tchotcke, exiled for playing,"Fur Elise" one time too many...

Tchotcke family angst...

Hi folks! Sorry about the delay; it's been a rough week. But to make up for it, I have more odd little photos of what I call the Tchotcke family...

Of course,Livejournal is being stubborn about posting the photo. I tried it about six times now. Humph. I'll try it again later today. Meanwhile, how's things?
