Finishes of all kinds

It has been a pleasantly productive past week! During my search for the missing pattern book, I turned up clothes, shoes, games, and books we’ve outgrown or replaced. A nice fat drop-off at the local thrift shop followed. …and you know how that goes. A closet purge feels good, so […]

Baby fun

Well. After several days of periodically tossing closets, storage bins, and bookshelves, I still haven’t found the pattern book I needed to make up my fun frog fabric into a casual dress. I’m tired of looking and not finding, so I’ve resorted to tracing the pattern pieces from another version […]

A second finished shawl!

Here it is, the second of the two shawls I started a few weeks ago, all bordered and bound off and even washed and blocked. It’s low light and threatening to rain here, which is why the colors don’t look quite right. Just trust me on this–in person, this pale […]
