Crafting good times

Square 1- Fantastic!

I’ve been knitting and crocheting a lot again. After taking some time off from squares, I started the 2017 Moogly CAL, despite not finishing the 2015 one. I only have a few square left of that one, and I thought maybe I’d just do a few squares I really liked towards […]

Stitches and more stitches

Labyrinth Sweater

am not working on anything nerdy lately.  It’s sort of sad, though the things I am working on are pretty neat.  I’m still working on the labyrinth sweater.  I wouldn’t call it slow going, so much as I frogged the thing 3 times (including twice at about 8″ in…) and then when I finally […]

Back to my dungeon! I mean basement…

My new stove is coming on Saturday!  I’m very excited, particularly since we got a good deal (I think…)  So my kitchen is almost complete, with just the odd touch here and there to make things more simplified and organized.  Which means…

Back to the basement.

Yes, that was the sound of me screaming in […]

On the hook…and needles!

I’ve always got a million projects going at once.  One day I will stick to the rule that I have to complete all my current projects before starting a new one.  One day…So my ACTIVE projects at the moment include a custom glove and ear warmer set for a customer, a cute coffee cozy to […]

Halloween semi-DIY

Today starts the series of costume wearing for three days for the kids.  Liam has a costume party with his karate class tonight, and then the kids have their classroom Halloween party.  Then there’s Halloween itself.  Today should be super busy- I’m making Halloween cookie cut outs for their classroom party, and that’s time consuming.  […]

When you spin faster than the world…

You know, it’s actually really hard to keep up with a blog, particularly with three kids and no plan.  Life seems to go from really boring to “omg, it’s really hectic I don’t have time to breathe so don’t mention blog busy.”  The toddler in particularly keeps me super busy.  Lately she takes to doing […]

Hook Happenings, part 2 (Catch up edition!)

NeverEnding Wildflower

Back to the Moogly CAL, I left off at square #10, with five alternative squares also completed. Next up was Square #11, The NeverEnding WildFlower Square.  Another flower square, but it was a really pretty one. A new technique once again, which was fun to learn.  I love the flower and the […]

Hook Happenings

I did a ton of squares in the spring.  The Moogly CAL was going quite well for me, at least until I got busy with a few other projects.  I did the next seven square from the CAL, as well as two random squares of my own choosing.  Technically, I’m still ahead at 18 total […]

Hook happenings.

Tamara’s Kismet- my first square

Starburst Square- really loved this one

I haven’t worked much on the CAL for this week.  Well, technically, I have.  It’s a square made up of four mini squares, sewn together, and I completed two of them.  But, they are too large, and I am not happy with […]


With the snow a foot or more deep, and the temperatures below 0ºF (and I won’t even discuss wind chills), we are all rather stuck inside.  I love seasons, I don’t mind snow and I even don’t mind the cold.  But this winter can’t end soon enough.  I’m ready for sun and the great outdoors.
