Power
song: last train home by imogen heap

thank you so much for your warm and heartfelt comments in our last post. i will be printing them to show charlie over christmas and maybe we'll do a feature on some of his things, too.

today's diptych is about power. they call new york the city that never sleeps. i don't know how i do. look at all those electronics on my bedside table : lamp, clock radio, ipod, transistor radio, cellphone (scott puts that there when he goes to work). oy! my mom made the afghan, which was stored away for many years. i took it out recently after seeing this one by sandra juto. i'm happy i did. it's nice and cozy. the view of the city is from the subway platform in our neighborhood at around 6 pm. it sure gets dark early these days. enjoy your weekend, everyone! get some sleep ;)!

xo, cindy

ps i made the trees last year for christmas using a pattern from the small object and they've been displayed ever since.

I'm glad you took out the afghan to use and enjoy. Very pretty. I think it would be perfect to use this weekend to watch a couple of old Christmas movies and a cup of hot chocolate. Have a golden weekend. xoxo

Do you have a pretty patterned cell, my dear? It would be like you to have roses all over it! I'm trying to sneak it little snatches of good sleep!

so glad you pulled the afghan out....i have things that were both of my grandmothers, and they just sit in a box...so much better to be surrounded in them.
happy weekend
and i love your trees

Gorgeous photos! I love how you capture my favorite time of day: dusk. Those Christmas trees are adorable too; at first glance, I thought they were ingeniously repurposed cupcake liners, but they are even better from a handmade pattern.

NYC is the city that never sleeps! Do you live in one of the burroughs or just outside? Nosey bugger, aren't I?

I'm enamored of the trees. Is that how you spell 'enamored'? It doesn't look right. ;)

I love that granny square afghan. Your diptych is a perfect combo--I feel the coziness indoors and the crisp evening air outside.
