So many things

Remember last week’s newly resuscitated interest in my long-languishing scrap granny square project? Here’s where I am now. I have 40 squares. They’re happy, pretty squares, too. And when I line them all up and figure in a little extra for joining and a border, it seems to be plenty. […]

Little baby squares

Here’s a long-term project I unearthed a couple nights ago: a scrap granny square baby blanket. When I started it, I’d figured it’d be a here-and-there kind of thing, but I really didn’t anticipate having let it be a UFO for several full years now. I added a couple new […]

It’s finished! (mostly)

I’d thought my weekend plans would include some stitching on several different projects, but as it turned out, I got on a roll with just one and…ta-da! Now obviously these are not final photos. I still have ends to weave in, and this beast still needs a good hard blocking […]

A stitchy weekend

Friday was expected to be a howler here, and the storm was also expected to continue roaring all weekend. As it turned out, we got some snow and wind, but nowhere near the amount or intensity that had been forecast. But that reality did nothing to deter me from my […]

Crawling out of the rut

Okay, that post title is a little dramatic. It wasn’t a rut, exactly, just some unwillingness to continue working on toasty-warm, wool knitted gloves given the unusually hot weather we had in December. I mean, really. 82 degrees and swampily humid at full dark? on Christmas Eve? in generally-mild-that-time-of-year Virginia? […]

Works in progress, of a sort

I look around at my favorite craft blogs and see that many of you have taken a little time off…but emphasis on “a little.” Also, you’ve taken your brief vacations from blogging or from computers in general, not from crafting. Alas, I’ve spent the past month largely absent from both […]

Socks, etc.

They’re done! The socks I’ve gone on about over and over and over again are finally done! It was mostly the fact that I’m not a one-project-at-a-time girl that these socks took me so long. I rarely have fewer than five or six things competing for attention at once. But […]

A month later…

It’s been a whirlwind last few weeks, full of so many family activities, work deadlines, bumpy schedules, extra projects, and one special houseguest. Lots and lots to appreciate and enjoy. And, I admit, tiring. I’m glad we’re rediscovering “normal” now–or beginning to, for a short while, anyway. October-November-December is just […]
