Hanging Grass

Hanging Grass

I wasn’t around when grass cloth was popular in the late 60’s, early 70’s.  For my entire adult life, I’ve tried to ‘strip’  all the wallpaper in my path!  Tacky florals, stripes, silly borders have never appealed to me, but I’m drawn to  grass cloth like a moth to the flame.  Yes, it can be retro, […]

WHY I RUN

WHY I RUN

I am a runner, I have been running 4-6 days a week for several years now.  However, I’ve got a confession to make………………. Before today I had not run in two weeks.  And before that only a couple times a week for the last couple months.  I just haven’t been able to make myself go! […]

Making the Bed

Making the Bed

Today was an absolutely perfect spring day!  If it’s not where you are, I’m sorry!  The kids went back to school today after a week of spring break, and Mr. Fixit, (that’s what Hubs is calling himself now, I think it is very  annoying, sweet, and also true), took a day off so we could play […]

We got not one, but two new magazines in this week, Knit Wear Summer 2013, and Knitscene Summer 2013,   I’m already through the […]

The Plan

I’m really excited, kinda nervous, but really excited!  After years of dreaming and drawing, planning and plotting, we are going to remodel our kitchen!!  I’m talking full-scale, gutting it down to the bare walls, remodel!  I have always wanted to bust up the cabinets, rip up the floors, wreck the whole place just like they […]

Saving 'Loads'

Saving ‘Loads’

What’s the absolute worst home keeping chore for modern moms?  Arguably the worst chore for mom’s throughout history? That’s right, LAUNDRY!  It’s no fun, and It. Never. Ends.  Clothes, sheets, towels, rugs, slipcovers, some days my washer is going non-stop!   I go through so much detergent, so quickly, I found I was buying 3 […]

Ruched Azelea Wrap

It’s the first day of April………Already! This is one of my favorite times of year, the flowers and trees are in full bloom, every spring I am reminded just how many beautiful Azaleas are around town! They burst open in an amazing array of hot colors from bright pinks, to hot corals to electric reds. […]

A New Pouf for Spring!

Have you noticed all the pouf’s popping up everywhere?  Every catalog, magazine and shop has their own version!  I had to have one!  And thanks to Pinterest I found this cute FREE pattern from Better Homes and Gardens.   It is a really fast sewing project and my favorite part, you stuff it full of old […]

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.  […]
