I am plugging along on making. The knitting is going well (as expected) however, the crochet... I do like the "end result" but boy. Who knew my very agile knitting hands could suddenly be all thumbs with crochet. Things I am struggling with: Holding the yarn in the...

Macro Monday | 4.20.20

Another week… another Friday…and joy of joys, it is snowing in Pittsburgh this morning. Yes, that's right… snow! On all the tender new leaves. On the lilac blooms. On the magnolia blooms. Sigh. Today is day four of my 100 Day Project and these moments of creatively...
