Watercolor Tapestry step one and go time

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Internetland! It's a proper fall morning here in my corner of the Fort after our taste of winter last week. October is cruising along and it's hard to believe that Marching Band regionals are tomorrow already.  It's been a quiet week from a production standpoint with Daddy here but I am making progress on the afghan that he brought for me to repair. I crocheted him one many years ago and some of the squares were coming apart and seams making holes. This last week I took it all apart, sorted and repaired the squares that I could and am now in the process of sewing it all back together. Many thanks to Pockethouse for...

A bit of fun and a big finish!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Internetland! Fall is starting to settle into my little corner of the Fort with some cooler temperatures...at night at least.

A big pile of finishing, happy craft news and more sports

Good Morning and Happy Sunday everyone! Little late today as a teenager stayed out at a friend's house till midnight. Yes, I'm one of those moms that stays awake until she knows her kid's home safe. Didn't hurt that I was enjoying my book and the music I had playing. What did we do with the week? From a craft standpoint I now have three naked *gasp* looms hanging out in the studio. Lots of weaving was accomplished this week and I now have a great pile of finishing to do. Contrary to perception a piece isn't completely done once the weaving is over. For me it starts with my pattern books and a lot of math. Figuring out how...
