random stuff

I’ve been busy or something lately, so not much crafting has been going on. We did go see David Sedaris last night, and he was so hilarious our faces hurt. He encouraged everyone to buy this book, which he edited. All proceeds go to support 826NYC, a nonprofit tutoring center in Brooklyn, New York, that was founded, I believe, by Dave Eggers. Go here if you want more info.
In other news, Tooth Carrie sent me this very cool duct tape wallet in aubergine:

I’m going to have to think of some secret items to stash away in there. Incidentally, Tooth Carrie is responsible for introducing me to Fritzie Fresh Gummi Brightcrawlers, the hands-down most delicious gummi candy I have ever had. I even contacted Fritzie Fresh to find out about their distribution, but alas, it seems only the lucky Minnesotans have access to the Fritzie Fresh goodness.
So speaking of stash, I finally redeemed a gift certificate I got from Carolyn and Joanna last year for Threadbear (phew, that was a lot o’ linkin’):

Some Rowan Calmer so I can make Nothin’ but a T-shirt from Magknits!

    Hi, I’m a longtime reader and lurker here–I really admire your talent and ability to finish so many things!
    I had to stop by to tell you that I think of you everytime I see this new Le Creuset casserole: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00023IV56/ref=pd_wt_1/102-2945712-4219313?coliid=I11GJJIWM6IEH0
    I love it so much, it’s on my wishlist! Have a great day!

    How’s this for weird: the yarn you bought with the g.c. from us is the same as the yarn Em sent me last year. The same color even. It’s like one gift being sent around and around the bloggers.

    Dang! I should have sent you a box full of brightcrawlers!
    Glad you like the wallet.
