January 2018 Recap – Stepping Into 2018

How was your January? I had to make a conscious effort not to "wish my life away" as my mother would say. January is not my favorite month with its frigid, short days but the days are getting noticably longer! My friends in (Old) England are reporting sitings of crocuses and snowdrops which, while they… Continue reading January 2018 Recap – Stepping Into 2018

December 2017 Recap: Piles of Presents

July 2017 Recap – Hydrangea Happiness

I do love summer! Too much crocheting got done and not enough of some other things, but it's so nice to sit out on my front porch in the morning, sipping coffee and stitching, and then later in the evening in my little crochet corner in the family room. Our crochet class has been meeting,… Continue reading July 2017 Recap – Hydrangea Happiness
