A Slice of Christmas, in July

Merry Christmas in July!  It’s kind of hard to get into the spirit when it is 90 degrees outside!  November and December are always so busy with all the usual baking, shopping and making gifts, that in recent years I have hardly had time to remember why we celebrate, and then it’s over!

Crafting with………Claire?

Caroline didn’t have her post ready today, oh the pressures of a sixth grade schedule!  So I thought I’d share how I used bleach to draw the dandelions on this blanket. Firstly I washed and dried the linen, this pulled all the excess dye out.  The color was called ink, it was a very deep, […]

Adding a Border

Knitting on a border so that it looks smooth may look challenging, but it is easy and dare I say it, fun!!  There are probably as many ways to do it as there are cast on’s, but usually, this is the way that I find works the simplest for me. Step 1- find a border.  […]

Hibernating UFO’s……Wake Up!

Yesterday was the First Day of Spring! The kiddos and I spent some time picking up sticks and pinecones, begining the clean up from a cold, gray winter.  The bushes and trees are budding and blooming, and it is so encouraging to find new growth breaking the ground from long dormant plants and flowers. Spring […]
