RMT- May 2015

May 1st has sneaked up on me!  Days like today I am even more thankful for lovely friends who help out designing these dishcloths!!  This on is one of Betty’s, she has worked very hard on it and her hard work has paid off in spades!  She loves to throw in a few new stitches […]

RMT, April 2015

I was selling yarn at the shop today when it dawned on me that it was the last day of the month, time for a new dishcloth KAL!  April is such a wonderful month, the flowers start to bloom, fresh vegetable plants are planted and the whole earth is covered in yellow powder!  If I […]

March 2015 RMT

March 1st! I had lunch with my dad today, and he told me that snow was forecasted in every state in the country this week!  Can spring hurry up already?  If there is a positive to all this nasty weather, it must be the pure pleasure of snuggling under a blanket knitting, well, at least […]

I Buy Ugly Chairs

I Buy Ugly Chairs

We have a local house flipper in town that has huge billboards that advertise, “I Buy Ugly Houses”, I don’t do that, however, I do buy ugly chairs.  Ugly chairs just call to me…. it’s been going on for years, at one point I was storing six, ugly chairs.  This tufted ‘gem’ has been in […]

RMT February

RMT February

February already? Not quite, I’m a couple of days early, (and I’m never early).  We are headed out in the morning for our annual skiing trip.  Last year I took my laptop along to post the nightly lines, and it was rather stressful dealing with the terrible mountaintop WiFi.  I know some of you worry […]

Consideration and Coasters

There is so much to do today, and I’m not getting it done!  We are headed out for our annual ski vacation in a few days.  We’ve been culling through our gear for a few weeks now, and after one last, full dress rehearsal/inspection, that part will be finished.  Today I’m supposed to be organizing […]

Clean and Sparkle

Clean and Sparkle

Today was a beautiful day in SENC, and I spent almost the entire day inside, cleaning.  We go through seasons of stuffing, stashing and hiding around here until it becomes too much work to find things or I get in the mood to do a serious clean.  Today I found that mood.  This morning my […]

Covering The Book

Covering The Book

Today is an especially exciting day.  Not only did the kids start back to school, hooray,  tonight my bible study group meets to start a brand new series!  We have a wonderful group of ladies, young and old, new Christians as well as long time believers, and a very diverse mix of denominations.  Along with our […]

RMT- January 2015

January 1, 2015.  Happy New Year!!  It is surely hard to greet the first day of a fresh new year without hope for the future, there is just too much possibility.  2015 marks 15 years our shop, The Quarter Stitch has been in business, (the first 5 we were just called The Quarter).  There is much to […]

New Year’s Porch Dress

Christmas has come and gone once again!  Ours was filled with family, friends and lots of laughter.  We had company for just over a week, and are now enjoying the quiet!  The Christmas things are slowly making their way back to the tops of closets until next year, and I am starting my annual sort, […]
