Just Right

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Quiet, slow start here today with the girls enjoying the three day weekend and sleeping in. I'm sure that will change once I start breakfast and the race at Daytona this afternoon. What was I up to last week? Well I finally got some photos of the pocket squares taken! They are now available here. I still need to get better at styling and taking photos. The finishing pile is getting pretty high and starting to poke at me also. There's mug rugs that need knotted and a couple of new scarves waiting to have their fringe twisted. My big excitement last week was a table! Now I know you're thinking "Why would she be...

What do you mean no sports today?

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Going to be a bit of a strange one around here today....no sports! Football season is over and Baseball is yet to begin. Nascar fires up with Daytona next weekend and there might be some college hoops that can keep me company with the Tapestry today. So how was this last week for everyone? Girls are mostly over being sick which feels good and I'm glad of. Hopefully sleep will once again become my friend instead of listening for them most of the night. The PieceWork project is finished and shipped off last week. You have to wait until the fall to see it but it was fun. I also accepted a project with SpinOff...

The return of routine and breathing

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The sunshine is giving me the illusion that's it's warm outside but I'm not going out to check! Routine returned this week with the girls heading back to school for the spring semester. I think I got the short end of it being the one to wake them up. Going from sleeping in to 10 am most every morning over break to 6-630 am is a big difference. Thankfully no one snarled too much and things have started good. The college application process has started for Amanda and Serra made first team for Science Olympiad. As for crafty things! The colorwork mitts are finished and currently drying. I will get them into The Loopy Ewe...

Last Sunday of the Decade

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The last Sunday of the year and the decade. Been trying to remember New Year's 2009 and I imagine that it was spent watching two young girls doing everything in their power to stay awake till midnight. This time around I'm guessing they're going to be laughing at me trying to do the same! What craft news do I have to share with you? I know that everyone is in the holiday hangovers right now but in a way I get to keep Christmas going for a few more weeks. I'm working on an Ornament for the Just Cross Stitch Christmas 2020 issue. You won't get to see that one until October but I do...

Eve shopping, holiday market and a new item!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The last Sunday before Christmas and the second to last one of not just the year but of the decade. Kind of wild to think about the changes that have occurred in my life over that time span. So what happened this last week? The girls are done with school for the semester, both doing good on their final tests and having great holiday concerts. I think they are ready for some down time, most especially to be spent sleeping in! Amanda got the joy of going Eve grocery shopping with me. The cart was FULL and took two to get it out to the car after bagging it all up. Don't worry this isn't...
