Last Mango in Paris

Welcome to my mess:

This is my life right now. Spinning, in the middle of knitting, notes, redesigning websites, and many To Do lists. I feel like I have so much to do, and yet feel like I have done so much. The old Jimmy Buffett song keeps running through my head:

I ate the last mango in Paris

Took the last plane out of Saigon

Took the first fast boat to China

And Jimmy there's still so much to be done

Guess I haven't done anything as exciting as these things but I did drive to Virginia on Saturday and came back on mangos were involved. But there were deer and a bear...and a chair:
This chair was rescued from a yard sale and was just screaming to be used in the CASA Chair auction. I will post more about it when I actually know more about it. Jeanetta just told me I had to get a chair and decorate it with yarn. So, that's what this is.
Above is the starting of the wrapping. I am doing it all in handspun yarn so I can control the feel, look and all. Here is a look at that part finished.
The pic below was the closed thing to a boat we were on, not exactly a fast one. I hopped out of it (actually a hammock in Sam's Club) to take the pic. Yes we are goofy and it's hard to take us anywhere.

So until the next post...keep following la vie dansante! ♥

I adore hammocks ^-^ I miss having one around to lazy in. Thats my main goal when looking at land is finding a pair of trees near enough to the house that I can have a nice one.

That is going to be one cool chair! I can't wait to see the finished product. I want to know more about this auction too, it seems like a lot of fun.
