The Charlotte Shirt

The Charlotte Shirt

I just can’t wait until Friday to tell everyone about my latest finished project!  It’s a sewing one this time.   Welcome my new shirt.  It’s called The Charlotte Shirt from The Magic Pattern Book. It’s a pattern book with a CD of PDFs or you can download from the internet via a link you

FO Friday – preemie mock cable hat

FO Friday – preemie mock cable hat

We were rather busy last weekend due to our trip to Norskedalen and then Sunday with our little one’s first day of Sunday School.  By the time we settled down, I was exhausted.  This week seems to have flown by too so I only managed to finish one project.   It’s a mock cable hat

Grape Juice

Grape Juice

I had thought to show this in my Norskedalen post, but that was long enough already with all the pictures I took!  I’m curious – when does something become a tradition?  The first year you do something, or only after you repeat it?  I’m guessing the latter, which means we added a fall tradition this

Norskedalen’s 2014 Threshing Bee

Norskedalen’s 2014 Threshing Bee

Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the cooler weather, being able to wear sweaters again, the changing colors of the trees, pumpkin and apple picking, apple cider and hot cocoa … I could go on and on.  One of my favorite events of fall took place this past weekend.  It was the

FO Friday – bobble bag and fall projects

FO Friday – bobble bag and fall projects

I was afraid I wouldn’t have anything to show this week. I feel like all I’ve done is “play” – start projects, dislike them, rip them out again. Case in point – I’m trying to design a shopping bag with a harvest theme. Naturally I don’t make it easy on myself and the concept I

FO Friday – Snowdrop Dress

FO Friday – Snowdrop Dress

I don’t get it.  I know it’s fall and the hours of daylight are diminishing, but it seems in general there are fewer spare hours left in the day.  I just don’t seem to be finishing projects as easily or as fast as I used to.  I did manage to finish this beauty recently.  I

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

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
