A big girl’s bedroom

A big girl’s bedroom

This post has been a long time coming … almost two years in fact! I started thinking about writing it when we switched Little Chick over to a toddler bed and we did a bit of remodeling to her room. Flashback to almost 11 years ago: one weekend we had family come over to the

FO Friday – swap package received

Something a little different this week. Last Saturday my UK swap package arrived! My daughter and I were so excited over the package we had to open it immediately. Look at what a great job P_E_S_T (on Craftster) did in the presentation of everything!     She had everything wrapped in lovely pink tissue paper,

FO Friday: Fingerbowl doily and a basket

FO Friday: Fingerbowl doily and a basket

Not much to show this week but I suppose I do need time to spend with family, clean the house (? nah.) and do other projects. I love working with thread and making doilies but I haven’t done much of it recently. I’ve done a fair job of finishing the projects I’ve started in the

FO Friday – gifts and prizes

  What do you get when you take a bunch of scrap yarns, a chance to participate in an international craft swap and a basic idea?     One amazing, freeform butterfly! I don’t usually participate in swaps, but I ran across one over on Craftster that sounded like a perfect match. It was called

FO Friday – chemo hat with flowers

Papa’s sister is currently going through a round of chemotherapy for breast cancer. Her prognosis is good but with the radiation and drugs she has to take, her hair is falling out. Last week, she posted a picture on Facebook of some super-cute crocheted hats.     She mentioned how cute Little Chick would look

Keeping It Real Cupcakes

Such a sad sight.     Lovely cupcakes, don’t you think? (not) A few days ago, Papa mentioned that we had frozen strawberries and some whipped cream available … wouldn’t it be nice to have some sort of cake with it (hint, hint). I wasn’t exactly feeling the baking bug, so I went to see

FO Friday – more stash busting

FO Friday – more stash busting

  Are you sensing a theme? I couldn’t resist making one more washcloth in that spike stitch pattern. It’s a simple design so it works up quickly but has just enough change to keep me interested. Obviously – since I’ve now made three of them! I think I’ll take a break and do something else

One thought on “Welcome

  1. ROSEMARY says:

    Love your hat design and also the cowl. Is there anyway I could get the patterns so I can make them?
    Also I would like it if I could get emails from you on what you are doing. I did not see anywhere to sign up for them.
    thanks,
