FO Friday – Christmas in July

FO Friday – Christmas in July

I know it’s the end of August, but I never talked about a crochet-a-long (CAL) I participated in at the end of July.  I don’t like participating in mystery-a-longs, especially when I have to pay for a pattern because you never know what you’ll be making.  This one didn’t even give a clue – it just

Venison Stew

Venison Stew

  This isn’t so much a recipe as an idea.  And August is the wrong time of year for me to be thinking about soups and stews.  However, since I showcased those delicious Potato Rolls yesterday, I wanted to show you the reason I first made them.  On a rather cold November (2013) Sunday afternoon, we

Potato Rolls

Potato Rolls

  I know I’ve mentioned before what a bread-loving family we are.  I’ve had some success with bread-making and some failures – or partial failures like the Lion House roll incident.  I still haven’t attempted making those again.  At the same time I found the recipe for the Lion House rolls, I also found one

New Giveaways page

Since I had several people tell me just how much they missed seeing the giveaway posts, I’m trying something new to see if this helps. Check out the new Giveaways Listing page at the top. It will present the giveaways I find in a table format, listed in reverse date-added order so the most recent

Busy weekends

Busy weekends

One of my blogger friends posted this week and commented how when blogs are quiet it’s often because our lives are less than quiet.  How true that is!  We’ve had a couple of crazy weekends. I would have posted about them before today, but then we had an issue at work.  The week before a

FO Friday – the July edition

FO Friday – the July edition

I wish I had more to show for July.  It seems like I have accomplished more, but I guess not. Let me start with a simple project, but one that’s been sitting on the floor of my craft room for a few weeks (as evidence of wrinkles would indicate).  I didn’t like the way this t-shirt

FO Friday – the June edition

FO Friday – the June edition

It’s funny how it seems like it’s only been a week since I blogged, and then I check only to find out it’s been almost a month!   If you don’t count my rant post from Monday. What have I been up to?  Lots and lots of crafting.  So much, I felt I should break

Maddening Monday

Maddening Monday

I had a frustrating day yesterday. It probably didn’t help that I got less than my optimal number of hours of sleep … so I was cranky besides. I was feeling a bit stressed at lunchtime so I decided to take a walk for some fresh air and exercise. It was a bit windy, but

Harvest Home Farm – Fiber Fest 2014

Harvest Home Farm – Fiber Fest 2014

I don’t really have any finished projects to showcase this week.  Sad, I know.  Instead I want to tell you about a fun event we attended last weekend.  It was a fiber fest hosted at Harvest Home Farm near Whitehall, Wisconsin.  I encourage you to check out their website and read all about them and

Spinach Pasta Dough

Spinach Pasta Dough

I made a new recipe last night and I just have to share it with you!  As I mentioned in my Knit ‘n Fit post, one of the benefits of the challenge is sharing healthy recipes.  The leader of the group posted a link for 100 Times Vegetables Were the Most Delicious Thing on the Table.

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,
    Rosie
