A wife and mom, a worker bee, a churchwoman, a reader, and a crafter. What more is there to know? :)

The home stretch

I know I’m a very slow knitter, but even I could not have predicted that it would take more than a year to complete the Hitchhiker shawl. Okay, confession. I shouldn’t say that quite yet. In fact, I still have one and a half pattern repeats to go before I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hanging out with Joe Quinn

Many people in my area (southeastern Virginia, that is) spent a good part of last week convinced that Hurricane Joaquin–or Joe Quinn, as my husband called it–was headed our way. When a big local event I’d been planning to attend over the weekend was canceled on Thursday in anticipation of […]

Plugging along

It has been another very busy few days around here. It seems like just as I get one thing under control, three more suddenly need attention IMMEDIATELY. Home things, work things, church things, you name it. You know those kind of days, too, I’m sure. But, there’s always a little […]

Ready for the Boardwalk

A few days ago I posted some pictures of projects I’d been working on during the last few weeks. What I didn’t say much about was this finish: the Boardwalk Bag, the pattern for the autumn crochet-along at Moogly. Ta-da! The shape and size of my finished bag are true […]

Boardwalk progress

And that’s where my Boardwalk Bag is so far! This is the color combination I finally settled on for the Moogly Mini Crochet-Along project. I like how it’s coming along so far, but I’m not yet convinced I don’t need to try out one of the other combinations I’d considered, […]
