As you can see by the photo we had the house open today, enjoying a gorgeous day, partly cloudy, breeze blowing, 66° a little after 8 am and 83° at 6 pm. It’s just after 7 pm now and the breeze has disappeared and it’s up to 79° in the house so we shut theContinue reading “A Quiet, Fall Day”

I’m Done Now. Really.
So, Brad asked me earlier if I wanted to get rid of that brown recliner and I thought about it, realized I am not using it. It’s not that comfortable for me because the seat is not firm enough. The chair is now out of the studio and I’ve moved things around yet again! IContinue reading “I’m Done Now. Really.”
Another Finished Project
I finished the knitted potholder and it measures 8″ along each side. I just took it out of the washer and laid it out to dry. I’ll remeasure after it’s dry. I’m happy with the size of it so far and will make another one to go with it after I finish the crocheted versionContinue reading “Another Finished Project”
I’ve Done It Again!

I ended up with a two-ply lace weight yarn that eventually became a woven scarf. I can’t find my notes so IContinue reading “Weaving With Hand-Spun Yarn”
Mommy, It’s Hoomid Outside!
Got up this morning and started a pot of coffee and decided I should go ahead and open the side doors to the garage and get some fresh air circulating out there only to discover that although the air is somewhat fresh it is absolutely hoomid as our daughter would say when she was aboutContinue reading “Mommy, It’s Hoomid Outside!”
The last time I went stash diving it was for yarn. This time it was for fiber. I have a plastic bin full of samples of fiber from when I was subscribed to The Spinning Box when I was active on Facebook. I have more fiber than I will ever use and I am noContinue reading “Stash Diving!”
