A philosophical question and a little bit of craft

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! A bit of a philosophical question for you: If you leave the house and come back while everyone is still sleeping, did you really leave at all? It's kind of like the hearing the tree fall in the forest or another good one I come across is that the workout didn't exist if the trainer didn't see you doing it. Anyway I ran out earlier this morning for a breakfast treat and some pretties: Getting flowers every now and then is one of those simple things that perks me up. Sleep has been off and emotions sketchy. I always remind myself of the line from Desiderata: "Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness" when...

Rampant Nudity and Pro-craft-tination

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Internetland! Little late with talking today as I slept in but considering Sunday is the only day that happens and I normally get up at 4, 7:30 isn't the end of the world. Maybe I'll just blame it on the cooler temperatures and a new fluffy throw pillow. Amanda is sleeping off a 14 hour day of Marching Band yesterday and Serra is recovering from ingrown toenail surgery so I see the morning being quiet. Lots of finishing was happening this week and all four of my regular looms are naked. Yes people rampant nudity is happening here. I'm being silly, when you put a project on a loom it is called "dressing the loom"...

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...

Baseball, new product and little magics

Good morning and Happy Sunday Internetland! I hope that you are enjoying the long weekend. The girls are taking advantage of it by stocking up on sleep. This is our last free weekend until the middle of November so I've been trying to keep it as chill and relaxed as possible.  So what did we do this last week? Went to the baseball game! It's been 6 years since the Red Sox came to Coors Field and the atmosphere at this game was much different than the games I attended in 2010 and 2013. Those years it was probably 50-50 on the fan bases, this time it was closer to 80-20 in favor of the Red Sox. It was unreal...

The eerie silence and finishing projects

Good Morning and Happy Sunday everyone! We have survived the first week of school and routine is coming back. Granted we're still not very excited about the later start times for high school but I guess we have to roll with it.  What did I do last week with the neighborhood eerily silent with all the kids back in school? New yarn colors are done! They are posted in the shop under each of their bases, Hope, Faith, Promise and Trust. Also the knots came up on the looms! I tend to get excited when I see the knots because it means the project is almost done. Most times it also makes me weave faster! The black silk did get...
