Joann fabrics had doorbusters and this jumbo yarn on sale 3 for $20. They're @1,000 yds each. Before you poo-poo this yarn, hear me out. It's perfect for something I needed - a small washable rug for winter. My feet have been cold on the bare floor when I sit at my table. Pulling from… Continue reading Crochet rug
Love this pattern and the poms I found on etsy. I don't have anyone in mind for these just yet, but that's never a problem for long! I also have a few January birthdays to consider.

Today, we harvested cucumbers, tomatoes, chives to create some sort of side dish for grilled burgers. Reaching for… Continue reading Too hot for Irish coffee
I received a broken fairy. I didn't expect her to be great, but as a Grammie, I really wanted her for my granddaughter's visit this summer. That's a pretty nasty break. A bit of e6000 should hold. At first I was looking to make a return, but the seller offered a refund for all but… Continue reading Fairies gather…
Restful weekends, catching up with home and the homies living in it. The week is busy, Sundays are for my least strenuous tasks.

The middle of the day has been in the she shed, enjoying a cool breeze on a… Continue reading Roses for spring
