Summer is a Comin’ In – Year of Projects Update #1

The title of this week's update is a nod to a song that is the theme song of our local high school Madrigal Singers. It's also true and it's been scorchingly hot this week! I thought the song title was appropriate since I'm starting another blanket this week as a graduation gift for the Queen… Continue reading Summer is a Comin’ In – Year of Projects Update #1


February – May 2018 Recap, All the Things

I am a bad, bad blogger. I have been so busy making I haven't wanted to take the time to muse about what I'm making. But here's a quick recap of the four months that I skipped.

January 2018 Recap – Stepping Into 2018

September 2017 Recap – It’s All About the Blankets

September was an odd month. Even crochet was slightly stressful, but enough about that. As far as my "crochet social" goal went, I only made it to the Wednesday afternoon craft group once this month, but I did sign up for the Community Ed. class again. We'll see if there are enough sign-ups to run… Continue reading September 2017 Recap – It’s All About the Blankets
