Auntie Nettie's Attic Merchandise 2012 - July

I've been flipping through my various calendars trying to figure out where July went.

The weather was ridiculously hot and humid, with lots of storms and showers, so I wasn't out and about on crazy fields trips as much as I should have. I mean, I did have somewhat of a social life.
~I went to see Pixar's Brave with my friend Cynthia, where we reveled in the Scottish dialectic and wonderful animation.

~I also spent a fun Summer Friday on a busman's holiday at Caramoor, celebrating Paul's 20 years of service.

~ But mostly, I spent it in the Attic, doing some cleaning up out from under the rafters, going through trunks of childhood stuff. You'll have seen some of the retroblogging already of papers, pictures, and documents, but there are still many many things left to post weeks and months from now. (Seriously. I already have written a few posts for May 2013. Tomorrow? Not so much -- but May 2013 is full of stuff.)

While I was doing that, I might have also been catching up on summer television programming - including the awful Olympic coverage of the Opening Ceremonies -

or mostly, hiding out in the air-conditioning, working my way through the yarn stash on projects like these:

To give credit again, when credit is due, the monster hat and the dinosaur hats was adapted from another blogger, The Boy Trifecta and her Crochet Monster Hat Pattern. (Links can be found in June's roster of projects.)Still in progress:

2010: The multi-colored albatross. I have to finish that dang thing already.

The shop listings have indeed expired. I have to deal with all the bags and buckets and piles of projects to get them up and online. If I can clear the back-log, maybe I can move on to other craft projects? Like sewing, and using up the trunk of fabric stash, buttons, bits, and bobs I also have stored in the dark recesses of the Attic closets.
