No guests. No potlucks. No parties. Hoping the new year brings new hope for better things in 2021. We'll sure miss those we've lost and have a new appreciation for what we used to have. Merry everything! Here's a little christmas decor from around our house... An 80s cookie jar from eBay. Score! The festive… Continue reading A Quieter Christmas
In an effort to hide my cleaning supplies, a curtain-closet was made. It wasn't working out though. A free (new in box) closet door was on Facebook marketplace and a crystal knob from Amazon years ago. Maybe she was giving away this door because it's very tall, taller than my entry door. It works for… Continue reading A broom closet
A few petite pumpkins for fall gift giving with one to my October-born middle boy. This adorable and free pattern found here. Great TV watching quick project from stash. I made 8 in a weekend, just couldn't stop. The minis are made with sock wool, then some larger with dk.
This old mat was here when we moved in years ago, but recently we had the garage painted and added new storage. This mat was set to go in the trash but since it would be in a landfill forever, I wanted to try to reuse it. It was sure ugly! I hosed it off… Continue reading Painting an old Welcome mat
We have a new granddaughter and she's just precious. Some crochet that was made for her arrival. Here are links to the patterns: Purple crocheted hat, purple crocheted sweater, pink knit sweater and the white hat has no pattern, but the pom was bought at Michael's.

My web host kept changing things on me, so the blog was getting lost so I brought it back over to WordPress and it should be safer here than in any sub-directory on xyz.blah. It was a craft-filled Christmas and here are a… Continue reading A belated Christmas post
For a cold weather trip to Beufort, NC back in December - brrr.... what were we thinking? Beaufort is a quaint gem of a town kind of frozen in time. So many historic homes, they're all white, and the annual holiday home tour is a real treat. The pattern is the Gingerbread Hat by Angel… Continue reading Charcoal Cabled Hat
This is a free pattern found on Ravelry and this one is made from Feza Softie. I love that it makes the decorative edge as you go.
For co-workers, neighbors and friends. A little something more than a card. Hope you're having fun getting ready for Christmas, too. 🙂
I've made this a few times - LOVE the pattern. Great baby gift. I found the fabric covered buttons on Etsy at HowBeadyful and they are the 1/2" ones. Too sweet. One is a baby gift, I have the others on reserve as stand-by baby gifts I guess. Like the 2 pink ones I've made… Continue reading Autumn Leaves Baby Sweater
