No Mystery

No Mystery

Last week I shared a picture of a shawl I was racing to finish, and today it dawned on me that I never showed the finished product!  I finished it early Thursday evening, right on schedule, it is prettier in person, and light as a feather in lace-weight mink.   So I turned my attention […]

Riddle Me This- February

Happy February Y’all!  It’s time again for another mystery dishcloth KAL!  This one is an awesome collaboration between two great minds.  No, not the greeting card companies and the candy manufactures!  Betty and Eva worked together to design this spectacular cloth.  I know I say it almost every month, but this one is really one […]

Riddle Me This- December

It’s December!  This has to be the busiest month of the year, so, I’d like to invite you to spend just a few minutes everyday, knitting 2 lines of a simple dishcloth.  Watch the stitches fall into perfect rows, reflect on the cleverness of your hands, a few minutes of peace, just for you!  Will […]

So This […]

Busy Hands

Busy Hands

Summertime for my kids means swimming, lots of swimming.  They swim every chance they get and during June and July they swim on a competitive local team.  Which means Mr. Fix-it and I spend 2 hours every weeknight watching practice and 4-5 hours once a week at the swim meets.  We love cheering for our […]

Crafting with.........Claire?

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, […]
