It Pays To Tidy Up

I was emptying out a basket yesterday evening, removing a couple of ziplock bags with fiber and bobbins in them, and found this little bag in the bottom of the basket. I can’t remember where the bag came from, if I bought it or it was a gift…been too long…but as soon as I sawContinue reading “It Pays To Tidy Up”

Rearranging. Again.

Now that my studio/workroom is de-cluttered I decided it was time to move the Kromski spinning wheel and the baskets of fiber and spinning wheel accessories out of the bedroom and back where they belong. I still have two wheels in the bedroom but they are more decorative these days. With this arrangement I canContinue reading “Rearranging. Again.”

Progress!

Leaves are falling, it’s damp and drizzly. Cooler weather on the way. Our foundation guys were here and took care of leveling the floor in no time at all yesterday morning. I was in town running errands and seeing the chiropractor and as I was leaving his office Brad texted me to let me knowContinue reading “Progress!”

Look What I Found!

So, there I was. Stash diving for a skein of yarn for the next pair of socks after I’ve finished the two pairs I’m working on now. I happened to spy a couple of familiar looking skeins of yarn in a bag and thought to myself, “Didn’t I start a project with two more ofContinue reading “Look What I Found!”

Ready, Set, Sew!

My sewing desk is in place, serger and sewing machine ready to use. All my storage boxes fit on the bottom shelf out of the way and I’ve got plenty of space in the drawers for the things I’ll use the most. I won’t need shelves on the wall above the desk after all. IContinue reading “Ready, Set, Sew!”

There Goes Another Month

So, here we are. It’s the last day of September. How did that happen? Wow. I’ve been busy and it just sort of snuck up on me. It’s 56° outside this morning and not a breath of air moving around out there. The sun is just clearing the tops of the trees and it looksContinue reading “There Goes Another Month”

No Desk Yet, But…

The guys from Furniture Row arrived yesterday evening and we were expecting this table as well as the desk that will serve as my sewing table. No. Desk. It hasn’t arrived yet. Odd that no one at the store thought to let us know that all we were getting was the small table. I’m aContinue reading “No Desk Yet, But…”

Happy Birthday Jacob

Our grandson, Jacob, is nine years old today. That doesn’t seem possible. We’ll have him out for the day soon, maybe take him to Chick Fil A for lunch. He was used to being the youngest until his baby brother arrived nearly two years ago. Now he gets to be a big brother to Gabriel.Continue reading “Happy Birthday Jacob”

Socks And More Socks

I finally finished this pair of socks around 4 pm today and put them in to soak in Eucalan. They are drying on the sock blockers and will be added to my sock drawer when dry. This is the pair I’m enjoying working on at the moment, another skein of Jo Dee’s BFL/Nylon base andContinue reading “Socks And More Socks”
