A Mini-Vacation

Steve had jury duty again on Monday so I took a vacation day to see all the Christmas (which was especially wonderful because it was not super crowed and I did not have anyone complaining while I spent my time soaking it all in!) It was super cold, but the sun was out...

Button, button

By the time you read this, the ribbon facing will be stitched on and the buttons all sewn in place! Glamor shots coming shortly! However, the good news is that my Nana's button collection had oodles of choices. I went with 10 matching buttons (and there are still 5...

Sunday Reflections, November 19

In a world where finding even the tiniest shred of good news seems to be a daunting task, this floated to the surface this week. And, just when you think that public figure and disrepute are interchangeable, thank you Bill Murray for showing us that is not always the...

Simply Saturday, November 18

TODAY by Mary Oliver Today I'm flying low and I'm not saying a word. I'm letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep. The world goes on as it must, the bees in the garden rumbling a little, the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten. And so forth. But I'm taking the day...

T-freaking-GIF, November 17

Okay, seriously…not everyone in my house is happy it is Friday. I should probably be more sedate in my enthusiasm for the week's end since Steve was selected to serve on jury today of all days. Now, if you live in Pittsburgh you already know what the problem is, for...

Unraveled Wednesday, November 15

Hello Unravelers! I am sorry this post is so late today, but I have been working on a new project which has been consuming lots of my "brain time" as well as available hours in the day time. Now, this is not at all a bad thing and I feel very blessed and so excited to...

Currently, November 14

The mind moves in the direction of our current dominant thoughts. Earl Nightingale Finishing: I am closing in on the finish of the body of my Rusty. My goal for today is to finish these last few rows and get my crochet steeks done so that I can cut it apart tonight at...

Sunday Reflection, November 12

Today's reflection is all about yesterday. It was a most wonderful day. First, we walked where we rarely walk. We visited Indie Knit and Spin where I met Knit/Wit and Rainbow. We walked more along the North Shore and stopped to appreciate memorials and remember those...

Simply Saturday, November 11

My November Guest My sorrow, when she’s here with me, Thinks these dark days of autumn rain Are beautiful as days can be; She loves the bare, the withered tree; She walks the sodden pasture lane. Her pleasure will not let me stay. She talks and I am fain to list:...

Fiber Friday, November 10

If you recall, I had a good long discussion of this sweater with Mary in which we spent a bit of time doing some knitty maths to determine how to place the pattern on the sweater (since the stitch count did not match the stranded knitting chart). And, so I counted...

Three on Thursday, November 9

It is sometimes hard to believe that it has only been a year since this nightmare began. Yes, that's right a year ago today (I know it seems like an eternity!!) However, this week I began to see a silver lining! In fact, a big old pink sparkly silver lining! Handknit...

Unraveled Wednesday, November 8

Greetings, Unravelers! I find myself immersed in "Deep Sweater Season" and happily so! I am about two and a half inches from joining the second sleeve with the body to continue with the yoke of Rusty and visions of my next sweater are dancing in my head! These are the...

October Stitching

I should be writing today's blog post, but I got completely sidetracked reading this Twitter Moment. The comments are seriously awesome…but, back to the post: I was rudely reminded over the weekend that grey, rainy days are the bane of photographers everywhere. So,...

Sometimes Monday, November 6

…are full of gratitude! The weekend was so full of so many good things. Thankfully the rain held off until late in the day so there was lots of out-door time. The gardens were put to bed. And, the extra hour was used for reading! Sunday's torrential downpours did not...

Sunday Reflection, November 5

My plan for Sunday's is to help us all do a little bit of reflection on something good from the past week. After all, the news is filled with so much bad, sad, make you mad nonsense… but if you look for it, there just might be a ray of sunshine out there, like this...

Simply Saturday, November 4

November brings a change of schedule to our house; not only the time change (which you should remember to do tonight when you go to bed!) but our Saturday schedule changes dramatically. No more local farmers market and inclement weather makes walking questionable as...
