Finally Graduation!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's cloudy and cooler in my little corner of the Fort so far today. I would love it if it would stay that way!  So what did we do this past week? I got the Knitcrate project finished and written up. Once I figured out the shaping it was a breeze and worked up in one day. It will be a part of one of their September boxes and go off in the mail tomorrow. I'm still knitting on my next self publish knitting pattern that will be here soon. I always forget how long knitted on edges take. It's only 16-20 stitches per row but then again there are a lot of rows. We...

In the blink of an eye

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's seems that no matter how much mentally I would love to sleep in on the weekends my body always has other plans. I guess waking up at 530 am every day isn't that bad of a thing though. It gives me more time to do things and the temperature is cooler. What did we do this week? I woke up this morning and realized that it was kind of a weird one in that it disappeared in the blink of an eye. At least for me it did, I'm sure the girls would disagree.  My contributor's copy of PieceWork arrived yesterday and I got to see all of the goodies inside. The issue is...

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...

Eating the elephant

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! This morning I am thankful for sleep. This last week was finally a restful one with sleep coming deep and naturally instead of being a fight as it is most nights. This morning things are looking a little gloomy in my corner of the Fort so far today but ever since seeing Monet's Winter collection I've been looking for different colors in it. Thursday's odd winter spell here made it feel like I was actually driving through one of his paintings and it was beautiful. So what trouble did I cause last week? Amanda finally got the band patches that she was waiting for so a good chunk of evening time was spent completing her...
