Yarn and Other Delights

I've been so busy over the last few months, I've barely had time to breath let alone think about putting two coherent thoughts together. One thing I've been doing - crocheting. This weekend I went to a huge sale at Herrschners. It was LOVELY. Yes I know it was shopping but I got to look … Continue reading Yarn and Other Delights

Not Really Scrap Yarn

In a week, I'm going to a city market sale. This is the first time I've really done anything like this. I didn't have a lot of stock built up so I was feeling nervous about it. My craft room is in chaos with moving things in and out of my house and the holidays. … Continue reading Not Really Scrap Yarn

A Bit of Zen

It's Sunday night and I'm headed to my recliner.  It's been a busy weekend.  Yesterday my middle daughter, her godmother and I went shopping.  I drove, they shopped, I crocheted.  I wouldn't have minded going into the bookstores they went to but my scooter has been sporadic for operating. When we got home, I finished … Continue reading A Bit of Zen

Crafting as Therapy

Saturday I had a plan which changed.  My plan was to get a bunch of book work done.  When I was playing one of my games, I got several hours of free play.  So instead of being responsible, I played on my phone until my middle daughter and a friend showed up to go craft … Continue reading Crafting as Therapy

Weekend?

Where did the weekend go?  Saturday I was up and dressed but didn't do a lot.  I crocheted.  I'm working on a kitchen set for someone.  Friday night I worked on dishcloths - lots of them.  Saturday I worked on pot holders.  Sunday I worked on a lot of different things.It seems like my weekend … Continue reading Weekend?

Snow Day!

While the weather outside is cold and snowy, my plan is to work on more holiday gifts.  The last package went to the post office this morning.  Ken tackled the roads in his truck - I think my car would have gotten stuck in our road since we've not been plowed out.  We got about … Continue reading Snow Day!

It’s the Little Things

Friday I asked my husband to help me with a couple of things this weekend.  He never said yes or no, because that's how he is.  Saturday while I was chatting with my daughter and my sister, plans were made for me to go to craft shopping with my sister and mother.  It gave me … Continue reading It’s the Little Things

Family Weekend

Friday Ken and I escaped from Wisconsin to go visit our middle daughter in Indiana.  Chicago traffic was slow (as expected) but we got there in fairly good time.  Saturday morning, I got a text message from my Georgia daughters saying they were 30 minutes out.  We knew they were coming but Vicki did not. … Continue reading Family Weekend

Morning Blahs

This morning I'm on my own in the house.  It's an odd thing to happen on a Saturday but Ken is off doing other stuff.  Whatever will I do on my own? I've sorted had breakfast, sorted laundry, and checked out my sales.  I've been on Facebook, Linkedin, and Goodreads.  It's surprising how much time … Continue reading Morning Blahs

Craft Organizing, Crafting Weekends

With the weekend snowstorm, we've started the winter season.  We got slammed with just under a foot of snow.  I've heard grumblings and complaints but really it will probably all be gone by mid-week.  We were lucky it came on a weekend so for the most part we could curl up inside and not have … Continue reading Craft Organizing, Crafting Weekends
