The Domestic Dash: Enjoying the Race!

Hello September KAL

I’ll share a family secret with you, my little family loves 70’s and 80’s music.  Now, my kids would never admit it, but they love a good sing-a-long in the car or dance party in the sun-room, and 1970-1989, those are our JAMS!  On the way to school this morning I serenaded them with the […]

RMT- August 2015

Happy August everyone!!  It’s my favorite month of the year!  Why?  It’s back to school month, that special time of year when order is restored in my home, I can hardly wait.  It got real this morning when we had to be up at 6:45 am  to get the girl child to the school for […]

RMT, July 2015

My watch says its the 31st, and it’s been a lazy, sunny summer day……… but it’s not the 31st, it’s July 1st!  No time to be lazy, it’s time to start a new dishcloth.  This month I’ve got a cute one, it’s sweet and simple and very summer-y.  At least South-eastern North Carolina summers!!  Also […]

Marking Milestones

Today is the last day of school. The last day of middle school for my daughter and the last day of elementary for my son.   It’s a big day.  The last day of school always fills me with dread, how will I keep them busy?  What will I do with them at home all […]

June RMT

June!  The official start of the summer season, hooray!  Warm, sunny, lazy days are here again.  Some may say it’s too hot to knit, to them I’d say,  you just aren’t knitting the right thing!  Socks, scarves, lacy tops, tote bags, all come to mind, but of course what could be finer than the humble […]

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 […]
