Riddle Me This- Summer Dishcloth

Ok, I’ve lost a month.  Just yesterday it was June 1, now it’s July?  Where does the time go!  Since I started doing the dishcloth KAL’s last August, it seems the months are whipping by so quickly, as soon as we start a new one, it’s over.  And I know I say every month is […]

Banishing Black

We have a joke around here that if you’d stand still I’d paint you!  It seems that I’ve always got a painting project in the works or in the wings.  Not because I love to paint, but because it is so transformative, and I’ll admit, fun!  Take for example this sweet library cabinet in my […]

Easy Watergate Cake

Easy Watergate Cake

My favorite thing about working with a large group of ladies, is of course the conversation.  On any given day in our tidy,  creative little yarn shop, the conversations can range from politics, to pop culture to parenting, all with in 5 minutes.  We solve all the worlds problems, laugh, and we talk about food…… […]

Riddle Me This, Birthday Edition

Riddle Me This, Birthday Edition

Welcome June, the first official month of summer!  This month is famous as the most popular month for weddings, but also for Birthdays!  I am extra excited about this month’s dishcloth as Betty and I have been conspiring about it for some time.  It is dedicated to our sweet friend Eva, who we’ve affectionately dubbed […]

Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk

I have a thing for pillows.  Designers often say how the easiest way to change-up a room is with paint, and while that may be true, I’d make a case for throw pillows!  Paint is messy and labor intensive, pillows, clean and easy, (especially if you buy them)!  Fresh pillows can bring pattern and color […]

Riddle Me This, May 2014

Hey, hey, hey, it’s MAY!  Warmer temps often mean we need smaller, lighter things to knit, and what could be more perfect than another dishcloth?  (I’m just sayin’)   We’ve got a cute one for you this month,  just knits and purls, easy as pie!  I’m not giving any hints to the theme this month, […]

Busy Break

Busy Break

It’s spring break here this week, and it is flying by!  I have finished a couple of projects though! The Winter’s Moon shawl, that I started last week.  Here is how it looked unblocked.   And blocked.  This shawl was so much fun to knit, I enjoyed every stitch!  Wonderful pattern, great yarn, Misti Alpaca […]

This is such as busy time of year, and I love it!  School plays, talent shows, concerts, gardening, spring cleaning, in addition to a couple of painting projects and a couple of sewing projects!  The ones that turn out I’ll share with y’all soon!  And speaking of screwing up projects……. check out this cute top […]

1Year Old!

Work-in-progress Wednesday has quickly become one of my favorite blog topics!  It is always fun to show you what I’m working on, with the hope that you will be inspired in some way to progress with your own projects!  However today, I want to share a work that I’ve had in process for 1 year […]

Riddle Me This- Easter Dishcloth

Riddle Me This- Easter Dishcloth

Happy April!  After this blistering cold winter, I know I’m not the only one who’s glad it’s here!  This month we celebrate Easter, by far my favorite of the ‘Holy’days!  In our house it’s know as Resurrection Sunday and this year it’s extra special because my sweet little boy turns 10 years old that day!
