This weekend I’m working on my second rendition of the Tranquil Baby Blanket by Lisa Wears. My first one: Was adored by my co-worker, so she commissioned me to do another. Since I found the first one very elegant yet simple, I agreed. Unfortunately due to some miscommunication the baby shower it was intended for… Continue reading Stitch me baby, one more time!
I have recently been working on my WIP list. I was up at 14 projects the beginning of the year, I counted as part of my resolution to reduce the number.

After my class ended on the 24th I put all of my excess time into finishing a project for my boss. It was intended to… Continue reading First completed project of 2018!

I won’t bother my lovely readers with the gritty details, I will just say hug those… Continue reading Solstice Tidings
I saw you across the aisle; noticing me, noticing you. Remembering all the rumors I moved closer, hoping to see if they were true. You watched me walk over, so I looked away shyly. Then I looked back, and Oh my gods! $5 a skein!!!! Maybe I should look at the Red Heart options again.… Continue reading A Love Story
Last week I had a break between classes so I did what any woman working two jobs and going to school would do, I took vacation days so I would be able to do absolutely nothing.
