Grandma’s Apple Pancake

Grandma’s Apple Pancake

I don’t know about you, but summer is a busy time for us. It’s hot and we have things to do outdoors so we don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen making dinner. We love making breakfast foods for dinner, but sometimes you need a change of pace from cooked eggs,

FO Friday – Revelation shrug

FO Friday – Revelation shrug

One of the recent Designers’ Challenges on Ravelry was to create a lacy shrug. I had never made a shrug before, but their definition was that it should be a rectangle or square that was then folded in half and seamed to create the garment. So simple! No making separate sleeves or having to put

Pie competition

Pie competition

This past weekend, my company held their annual picnic. They take over a local park that not only has lots of playground equipment and a beach to play on, but they also organize kids’ games and rent a couple of bouncy houses. Little Chick LOVES bouncy houses. It was a very hot day as you can see

S’Mores Brownies

S’mores brownies – as in, you’ll want s’more and more of these treats! They are delicious and simple to whip together.     I’ve made this recipe at least twice for events, and it’s always a big hit.

Homemade marshmallow fluff

Homemade marshmallow fluff

  I love, love, love marshmallow. Too much. It’s the reason I don’t make rice krispie bars very often; the rest of the family doesn’t eat many … and then I eat the rest of the pan! Someone in this household has even been known to eat directly from store-bought jars of marshmallow fluff, or

FO Friday – Too much stash

FO Friday – Too much stash

My craft supplies stash is out of control. I realize others will find this statement to be blatantly obvious given what they’ve seen, but it wasn’t apparent to me until now. Trying to move all my craft stash (once again) into the basement room has been a challenge. Rather than just move and dump/put away,

I belong to a pattern testing Yahoo group that makes it easy to for designers to find someone to test their patterns without having to jump through all the hoops that some of the Ravelry testing groups require.  I actually joined as a designer, but so far this year I’ve only tested.  I keep finding great

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,
