FO Friday – Valentine hat and stitch markers

Some bug hit me after our trip to Florida – I’ve been achy, a bit stuffy with a sore throat and just generally feeling blah.  It’s almost like the start of the flu but it doesn’t get worse – just hangs on.  It’s been negative temps every morning this week and on top of that, we have

Florida trip 2015

Florida trip 2015

Last week Little Chick arrived home safe and sound after our annual trip to visit Nana and Da (Grandma and Grandpa) in warm, sunny Florida. Except this year, it wasn’t exactly warm or sunny by their standards – “only” upper 60’s and lower 70’s. That didn’t matter – Wisconsin is in the negative (°F) temps

How a $25 desk turned into a $700 project

My company recently merged two locations into one building.  They had planned to do this all along ever since they built a new distribution center a few years ago – eventually.  This fall, management was approached by another local company to buy our old building and that put a deadline on our move.  Unfortunately, that

Pumpkin Processing

Pumpkin Processing

Remember when I talked about Olivia the pumpkin? Shortly after Halloween, Olivia “disappeared”. We weren’t going to draw attention to her absence in case that would cause a disturbance. Then again, we didn’t exactly hide the fact that we were chopping up a pumpkin. She was so big, we could only cook half of the

December catch-up

December catch-up

Is it too late to tell you about events that happened in December because I was too busy before now? Nah, I don’t think so. It’s only the next month! December of course is a wonderful family time for us. My parents are in Florida this time of year, but it’s still a great time

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.
