Joy in July

After a slew of too hot days, this morning dawns with relief – the temperature has significantly moderated. The AC has been turned off and the windows are opened wide to let in the breezes and the sounds of the birds and the cicadas. Summer is at its best and that is...

Drive by Monday, July 24

Sometimes the weekends seem slow and lazy and other times it just seems to race by. This weekend was the later and I am scratching my head wondering how the heck it is Monday already. It was a weekend spent trying to stay cool and dry (and there was lots of rain!)...

Now We Are Two

Today, my little Genevieve is 2 years old and my daughter sent me these photos this week and I just love them. They went to visit a Lavender Farm and Genevieve had so much fun! (Well, at least until she fell asleep!) And, all that lavender is just crazy (and...

Winter is coming…

Unrelated but relevant

Unraveled Wednesday, July 12

Ohai, Unravelers! Happy Wednesday to you! I am working on getting back on track with my mystery shawl – slowly, getting back on track! I am almost done with Clue #2, which puts me only 3 weeks behind! However, I did get a lovely distraction in the mail this week from...

June Stitching

June was the first month that the creative tension lingered most of the month and I am left feeling that it needs a bit more stitching. Will I stitch more? I don't know – I am having a bit of an internal debate with myself about that. My process has been to stitch one...

Monday Blues

Weekend Monday's are much better than Begin Your Week Monday's! This weekend did have some highs though. My Knit a Sweater in 4 days took 5 days. I am in total awe of all those who completed this sweater in 4 days – and there were several who did. However, I am...

More Important Than Ever
