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.

Last week I joined a health challenge.  I can almost hear the sighs … yes, another one.  This one is through a Ravelry group called Knit ‘n Fit.   The challenge is to daily post in the forum about our Meals, Muscles (exercise) and Motivation.  We’ve also shared what our goals are, healthy recipes, and what’s

Makin’ Bacon

Makin’ Bacon

Have you ever made homemade bacon?  No?  I highly recommend it.  Papa worked on this over the last couple of weeks, and for the past few days we have living “high on the hog” (pun intended). The process starts by putting a rub / brine on a pork belly and letting it sit in the refrigerator for 7-10

Father’s Day 2014

Father’s Day 2014

Anyone who knows us is aware of just how much Papa and Little Chick love each other.   I don’t always get my act together for events like Father’s Day but this year I wanted to do something special. Little Chick isn’t old enough to contribute a whole lot, but we had fun with these

FO Friday – failures and new projects

FO Friday – failures and new projects

Technically the only thing I’ve finished is this Underground Crafter mystery square.   And I’m still three square behind – thanks to a new release this last Wednesday.  I really began to hate this square.  I could have made three in the time it took me to make this one.  Not the pattern writer’s fault.

FO Friday – Tomboy Cardigan

FO Friday – Tomboy Cardigan

I feel like I’m cheating on this Finished Object Friday.  You see, I wouldn’t consider this little gem to be quite finished yet.  It still needs buttons.  And it really could use a good washing and blocking to straighten all the stitches out.  But somebody was excited when I said it was hers and she couldn’t wait

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,
