Just a short post? ... maybe ... LOL
(actually it probably will be fairly short - it is Just a bit later than I should still be awake ... came in her ages ago, but "Just had a quick look" at a few websites/etc and kind of seem to have lost a few hours ...
maybe this blog post should be Just text and no photos? (well - that would make it quicker to do, but I couldn't resist adding Just a couple of images ;-)
'Tis a funny word, Just ... "I will just be gone a little while" "I Just bought a little bit of fabric/yarn" (or whatever Junk you tend to buy too much of, to feed whatever addiction u happen to have ;-) ... "I will Just be a moment" "you Just do x - y - z ... " "it's Just a litle favour" "it was Just an accident" (Just a few examples there ;-)
The quilt group I belong to sort of has a rule about standing up to "show and tell" a quilt you have made - people sometimes get told off (but in a nice way) for using the word "Just" when referring to said quilt - people will spend hours/days/weeks even, crocheting a rug or doily or stuffed toy or whatever, or peicing and/or appliqueing a wonderful quilt, or sewing a dress or pants or shirt or something, or slaving over a huge cross stitch or something, or baking a yummy cake or cooking a wonderful feast for 10 dinner guests (or a healthy meal for their hubby and a kid or 2) ... and when showing someone/talking about it they will say "oh it is JUST a ..." or "it is Just something I threw together" or something along those lines ... but instead of Just dismissing it - one should do it the JUSTice of actually being proud of what you made.
... unless, maybe, it looks like this?
- I showed it to someone at work and she, very tactfully, said "it's an acquired taste" ... I probably couldn't have said it better myself ... I kind of like it more now that I didn't give it to the person it was originally meant to be for (I made a different thing that I think she would like better - although I am sure the baby she was about to have really wouldn't care what the bear looked like ;-) and I am also sure someone, sometime, somewhere, will quite like this bear ... and after all - it WAS an experiment ... just not one that worked as well as most ... especially not in that technicolour
but ... rather than say "it is Just some experiment that went wrong" - I will say it was an experiment that resulted in the invention of the scruffy grunge/punk hairy bear!
and ... Just for fun ... had to wait while the other photo actually transfers to the computer (I had to take the photo Just a little while ago because I had not already taken one) ... I went digging around to see what other interesting Junk I could find ...
The dog and I like looking in half built houses (sometimes he even finds builder's leftover lunch in the Junk piles ;-) ... I Just had to take a photo of this - something Just doesn't look quite right with this room:
ok ... on the right is a window ... on the other 3 sides are other rooms ... but where the F... is the door?!
(I looked and looked ... and there were timber uprights no more than 8 - 10" apart all along all 3 of those internal walls!)
... or maybe they were Just going to make a doorway later?
