Simplified Monster Buddy

Hey Friends!  I know it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, it took me awhile to remember how to log on!  Life got pretty hectic for me and the blog had to take a back seat.  I’ve started running again the last couple months, and writing blogs in my head…again!  Will that translate to writing them […]

April Dishcloth-a-long

We were on spring break last week and before I knew it the month had gone!  Everyone has returned to work and school today thankfully.  After just one week I can feel my anxiety start to bubble up, “And just how are you going to keep them busy this summer?”  Oh well,  like Scarlett O’Hera […]

March 2016 MKAL

March, this month is the beginning of spring and more importantly Easter.  My favorite holiday, why?  Jelly beans come to mind, but of course the real reason is the Risen Savior, hope for a hopeless world.   This months dishcloth is a true Easter themed cloth, no bunnies, baskets or jelly beans, (on the dishcloth […]


Well, I jumped the gun and posted the Monster Buddy blog without the PDF pattern link!  Whoops!  It is all corrected now and can be found here, Monster Buddy.  Sorry for the confusion!   Claire

Softly chirping birds on a spring morning, the crash of waves as they roll upon the shore, peals of laughter around a kitchen table, what do these have in common?  They are all melodies of life, more than just sounds, they evoke feeling and memories upon hearing.  To children born deaf or with severe hearing […]

February 2016

A day late and a dollar short, more than a joke this month, I’m literally a day late starting the dishcloth!  I must still have vacation brain.  Take a look why, We are back from our snow-skiing trip about a week, but as all momma’s know, the weeks before and after a big trip are […]

January 2016

2015 has come and gone and 2016 is here! We had quite a lovely Christmas and a busy, but peaceful New Year.  So peaceful in fact, that as I sat knitting yesterday with a friend, she asked about this month’s dishcloth and I had to admit I’d completely forgotten to start it!  Not that I’ve […]

RMT- December 15

My house is a disaster, and my ‘spot’ on the couch is covered in yarn, poly fill and bits of floss and glitter, must be December!  24 days until the big day, and like all makers, I’d bet you’ve got lots to do!  Instead of getting shorter, my list of to-do’s seems to be growing, […]

RMT- Christmas 2015

Our Sunday morning ritual is to drink coffee and watch Food Network before we go to church.  We have been big fans of The Pioneer Woman for years, since she was a beginner blogger.  In fact I always joke that she is Mr.Fix-it’s ‘girlfriend’, because he talked about what she was cooking so often.  This […]

October Dishcloth-a-Long

October is here!  And with it, cool breezes, colorful leaves and shorter days,  rain, rain and some more rain.  We are entangled in a huge ‘rain event’ here in SENC, and let me just say it’s getting tiresome.  Though, like all things, this to shall pass, sooner or later.  Guess I’ll spend all the time […]
