Year of Projects: Week 26

I think I’m approaching that time of year when everything starts to blend in together and one day becomes the next with no real delineation yet you still mark the passage of time in days, weeks, months. This is what Deep Winter does to me. Today is February 14th, Valentine’s Day. But that’s not aContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 26”

Year of Projects: Week 24

No lie, last week WIPED ME OUT. Publishing and promoting my Merry Un-Birthday Hat was most of my week. I had been working on Merry Un-Birthday since JULY of 2020, I’m so happy that its been released into the wild. This also makes 17 YOP items completed since August!

Baby, Take a Break.

A number of connotations in the title, this being Friday, the 8th of January, 2021 and all. First, I need a break from the news cycle. The insurrection of the 6th is still being processed in my mind; I have a lot of feelings right now. None of them are sympathetic to the perpetrators terrorizingContinue reading “Baby, Take a Break.”

Addition and Subtraction

I’m not TRYING to grow my stash. I swear! It’s just… I can spend money faster than I can knit or crochet. And the pretties… they CALL to me! We stayed in Williamsburg last week, we had an outdoor wedding to attend last weekend, and my in-laws had a bunch of timeshare they needed toContinue reading “Addition and Subtraction”

Year Of Projects: Week 5

Sorry friends, no finishes this week. I’ve made a bunch of additional masks, did some scrappy projects for wrangling said masks (read more about it here if you want), and worked on two other projects. Justine I’m further than this now. Justine isn’t part of my YOP projects, but I love it and want toContinue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 5”

Scraptastic

Yesterday I got the itch to work on some small projects to corral masks for myself and the kids. Our entryway is SUPER tiny, so making the most of my space is important. Additionally, since my space is SOO tiny, keeping it organized is a must. Disorganization looks like a huge mess. I made threeContinue reading “Scraptastic”

Boring

Me. I’m the boring one. This blanket I’m working on? She’s pretty and exciting. Project monogamy makes for boring updates. How many times a week can I really show you the same blanket? This was taken yesterday, just after adding the second set of balls. I haven’t had the time to work on “Justine” muchContinue reading “Boring”

emPower Cowl: Crochet

The emPower People craftivism initiative sums up my personal beliefs rather succinctly. I believe symbolism carries heft, a visual signifier of the kind of person you are. I am very selective about the symbolism I choose to adorn myself with. Making, and wearing, this cowl isn’t a flippant decision to make the new “it” thing.Continue reading “emPower Cowl: Crochet”

Working for the Weekend

This week starts a new chapter for us, virtual learning. Our oldest started first grade this past Monday, and it is going well. She is has been super independant and LOVING how grown she is with her very own Chromebook (on loan from the school). Every day she wakes up and asks if its timeContinue reading “Working for the Weekend”
