  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 9/10

    I feel the month of October was a lot of wheel spinning. I was BUSY, but I don’t feel particularly accomplished. This past weekend was my youngest’s birthday (complete with backyard party) AND Halloween. Our Girl Scout troop participated in two Trunk-or-Treats last week. The local Girl Scout troops (which ended early because of sudden […]

  • Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

    My daughter needs a new hat this year. I made her the Antler Toque from Tin Can Knits a few winters ago. But kids grow A LOT between kindergarten and 2nd grade. Also, her hat went through the hot wash…. but I digress. I started a new hat for her. I want it to be […]

  • 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’t […]

  • 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 been […]

  • 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. My […]

  • 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. Plugging along to make sure my numbers are right. They are. Updated the pattern file this morning to reflect some minor […]

  • 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 recent […]

  • 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 a […]

  • 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 is […]

  • 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, […]
