Endings and beginnings

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's cool and overcast in my little corner of the Fort so far today, a blessing considering that I'm not ready for the heat of summer yet. Things are getting green and the complex is getting a new look as they will be painting our building next week as part of the continuing recovery from last summer's hailstorm. This last week in craft I finished both the Handwoven piece and the Knitcrate box pieces. Those will get blocked, written up and sent out on Tuesday as the mail gets the holiday tomorrow. My next self publish pattern is written and is currently also in the blocking pile. It uses two skeins of Juliespins. You can...

Lots of finishes

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's another quiet one here in my little corner of the Fort but I think that is to be expected right now with my neighborhood continuing to stay home. I will say that things feel different however. The energy about feels like life is going to start picking back up again. Don't quite know how I feel about it because I don't want things to get moving too quickly and jeopardize August. What did the girls and I do this last week? If things had gone as planned Serra and Preston would have represented Colorado in the National Science Olympiad Tournament this weekend. Instead schoolwork officially ended for the girls on Friday and this next...

Pesky lost hour and a proud week

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Very quiet here this morning as the girls are sleeping in after a couple of full days plus I'm sure no one wants to think about the time change. The Spring one is the worst because now I feel even more behind today simply because the clock says that I am. What did we do this last week? Amanda and Fossil Ridge took part in the concert band festival for the Colorado Bandmasters Association. All three of Fossil's bands scored Superior rankings and they will find out in the next few weeks if they qualified for the State round held in April. Serra had a big day Saturday with the Science Olympiad regionals. If you...

Lots of white stuff, a finish and pacing

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Does the calendar really say December already?! Guess it's time to get on the ball on some things. So what happened in my little corner of the Fort this last week? In one word: Snow. Even the evergreens across the street didn't like how heavy the white stuff was. Official reports said that we got 15" but I think there was closer to 20" here. Thankfully we did not have plans to go anywhere and were stocked up on chili supplies and snacks. What do you do when the weather does this? Simple: movies and knitting. We watched The Hobbit trilogy and I finished my Pashmina project. What started out as a way to use...

Show prep and the end of the season

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I don't know about anyone else but this week has flown by. Maybe it's the time change and the additional evening dark that I'm not used to yet. Six in the evening feels like nine and I miss seeing the sunrise. So what did I do with this week that disappeared when I wasn't looking? Been doing a lot of tatting to get ready for the Holiday Market with Makerfolk on December 21st. I figure that if I make at least one pair a day I will have a good selection by then. Rapunzel and I busted out a new scarf. I measured the silk for this with a different color plan in mind but...
