in which I mostly show, don’t tell

You remember I was talking about that class, right? That class I just don’t really stop talking about? It’s still coming. Probably sooner than you’re expecting. I am so excited to share this with all of you. This time around, we worked in an actual kitchen studio which really helped- I maybe, possibly, potentially, DEFINITELY tried to fit way too much…

in which we have a guest

This week is all about hand- knit legwarmers, puppy sleep- overs, homemade apple pies (made from the spoils of last week’s orchard run, an annual fall tradition), giant calzones, and desperately waiting for piles of fiber to dry despite rainy days. I’ve got a pan of spices and apple peels simmering on the stove right now while we wait for Sam…

in which there’s just a little inspiration (and a spot of rest)

A quick bit of visual inspiration before I settle in for the evening. There are still things to do before I close up shop for the day: yarn to ply, dogs to feed, articles to tie up, all the puttering part of the day. Today has been a bit of a herky- jerky sort of day; morning in front of…

in which there is a list of Very Good Things

Sam’s brought home pizza so that we don’t have to turn on the oven, so brevity is key, but here’s a quick List of Very Good Things to tie up a warm but lovely week. Plans for the evening include a little embroidery, some grown- up coloring, and poking through a trail app my friend Dave showed me that has to be…

in which there is a little visual stimulation

We are still recovering from the weekend, and I’m guessing a lot of you are too- MDSW takes no prisoners- but in the meantime, how about something to get your creative process ticking?   Enough already with the bugs, I know, I know. At least it wasn’t an actual photo of a bug- I spared you that, there are PLENTY.…

on Friendsmas, and a reply

This was Friendsmas: the Fire & Ice edition, in which our 2- 4 inch storm warning turned into 6- 10 inches in a matter of 45 minutes, in which Derek ran a shuttle service (complete with interior Christmas lights) to and from dedicated parking because there wasn’t enough at the house, in which there were at least three oven fires that I was aware of, and in which Bruce told a gnome story that actually made Teresa laugh. There was the biggest turducken ever, and six (SIX!) piecakens, which- if you haven’t had a piecaken yet, fix that now, please. Sam and I helped out with food the night before, and now that I know how to make piecaken, I can’t go back to just plain pie ever again.

in which there is possibly too much talk of keelhauling

You guys. YOU GUYS. I can’t even begin to address the enormous outpouring of love and support you’ve been sending my way over the last few days. It’s really amazing. THANK YOU. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. I have so many comments and emails to respond to, and it’s a little overwhelming, but I needed to tell you how much…

on today, Friday the 13th

Today was Friday the 13th- aren’t they great? I love Friday the 13ths. (Is that the correct plural?) Outside of it being freakishly lovely outside, and more than a little hectic inside, no major catastrophes. I should probably knock on wood now, but I’m not going to, because I’m a risk-taker and I live life on the edge. ON THE EDGE, I tell you.
