Changes, again.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Yes I'm back. The weather is finally starting to cool off and we've had a couple of rainstorms here in the fort that I hope have helped with the wildfires in the area. Pine Gulch and Grizzly Creek on the Western Slope are finally coming under control, I-70 is open again and hopefully the cooler temperatures will help contain Cameron as well.  So what have we been doing the last two weeks? Craft has been limited but still going. I've been doing lots of edits back and forth with the great team at Knitcrate as two of their upcoming boxes will have my patterns. I've also been doing some spinning for The 100th Sheep. Peggy has...

The pebble to start the avalanche

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Soaking in a bit of the quiet this morning and breathing.  I would love to say that I accomplished a ton of craft pieces this past week but I can't. As anticipated the news of Amanda's college move in information was the pebble that started the avalanche of activity. Travel plans have been made, items packed and lists made of more needed items once we arrive. It's wild to think that this is going to be her last week at home for a while but this is also exactly what she is supposed to do. One chapter ends and another begins. I did get some craft done this week. Time was spent with Susan and...

A little bit of everything

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I think I can truly say that last night was the worst night's sleep ever had over the last few months. But the sun's up so I'm up and still here. Guess the good thing is I get to try again tonight. What was our crafty household up to last week? The studio is open again! I had things partially packed up as the room is also where Daddy sleeps when he comes over and I was anticipating a visit. Susan finished up another piece and got dressed with some gold tencel for some more. I'm going to release the Autumn collection that she has been working on at the Equinox, September 22 so come...

August, you're looking very different this year

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's a quiet and sunny morning in my little corner of the Fort so far today. Nights have been much cooler making sleep wonderful once I get there. The afternoon rainstorms have also been a treat.  What did we do this last week? Well to say the last few months have been different is an understatement. I don't think that anyone could have told you that baseball's Opening Day would be in July but it was the 24th. We had other things happening that day so our standard festivities had to wait. My Red Sox and my best friend's Mets played a four game set this last week and the girls and I chose the...

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...
