A Year of Projects: Weeks 6/7

I’m not going to get down on myself for not updating recently. I’ve been creating furiously, however, I haven’t been compelled to SIT and write about it. In fact, I’ve been having a difficult time sitting still for any length of time to concentrate on “computer” stuff. It is what it is, but that doesn’tContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Weeks 6/7”

Occupied. Ish.

It would appear that I have taken an unintentional hiatus from blogging. Whoops!! I also haven’t been engaging with social media much (posing or perusing). No real reason. I HAVE been listening to audio books verging on obsessively, for the last week…. yeah. We’ll blame that. What have I been up to? I’ve also beenContinue reading “Occupied. Ish.”

A Week Of Projects: Week 5

Last week was pretty slow in terms of crafting. I’ve been diligently working on my projects: Until We Win: Fight shawl, and my Wheat Stitch Crochet Wrap/Big Scarf (no new pictures). This past week I planted additional mums and attended an outdoor birthday party at a park for a friend. Until We Win: Fight. MyContinue reading “A Week Of Projects: Week 5”

A Year of Projects: Week4

Its Sunday again. Welcome. I don’t have any big finishes. Or starts. Or much of anything. Until We Win: Fight I’m on section 3 of 5 right now. Pictured is sections 1 and 2.

A Year of Projects: Week 3

Last week. Phew! I made a little progress on sewing through my fabric stash. I finished a pair of socks. I am working on the first test round of my Until We Win: Fight Shawl. I wrote about my socks here and my sewing here, just in case you missed it. The socks are recentContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 3”

Felt Like: Fall

After last week’s hurricane blew through, the temperatures have been significantly cooler. We’ve turned off the AC and have opened up the house. While its not all sweatshirt weather all the time yet, its a pleasant prelude to come. This morning I left the house in full fall regalia. My socks, my clogs, and aContinue reading “Felt Like: Fall”

FO and Storm Aftermath

Yesterday afternoon Hurricane Ida moved through the area. You wouldn’t know by today’s shining sun, however the aftermath is apparent by looking at the ground. I haven’t been beyond my yard today, but regionally, there’s been a lot of property damage from rain, flooding, and tornadoes. The district closed school today; I think this isContinue reading “FO and Storm Aftermath”

A Year of Projects: Week 2

I didn’t get to work on EVERYTHING I wanted to work on this week. But guess what, I’m a going to go with the flow! Let’s focus on what I DID accomplish. Not YOP, but still an accomplishment: Yesterday I moved around some “organization” stuff in my daughter’s room. I use the word organization loosely,Continue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 2”

Shout Out!!

Its the morning before back-to-school here! The kids are so excited to go back and see friends, and learn all the new things. Back-to-school night was yesterday, and we got to see the classrooms, and meet this year’s teachers! We also got to see last year’s teachers, which was also great. The kids’ school hasContinue reading “Shout Out!!”
