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 […]

Emerald bath robe

Here’s my latest finish: a short-length, short-sleeve bathrobe. It’s awfully simple to look at, but this finish feels like a big victory. Hmm, let me count the ways! 1) Both the fabric and the pattern were free. The pattern came from one of Tillie’s books. I suppose you might call […]

Actually, many of those stand-alones were individual pieces of one rather large project. Remember last fall when I made outerwear for a bunch of […]

A (partial) wardrobe overhaul

Back in April, I learned about Me-Made May 2014. I loved the concept but did not sign up. I knew that, with everything already on my calendar at the time, I couldn’t hope to finish any new craft challenge that month, no matter how humble a goal I set. But […]

Ooo, hot pot!

I’ve needed some new potholders for an embarrassingly long time. This project was long overdue! Turns out, I had fun and made a pair for myself and a pair for someone else, too.         For the first pair, simple flower appliques stitched on a heavy twill: And […]

Shhh! Some preview photos

I’ve been working on so many different things these past two weeks, I can’t even count them all. Some have been non-craft-related. Others are complete crafts, but I can’t share yet because they’re gifts in transit. Two others are ordinary but perfectly useful, and I definitely will share them. But […]
