“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don't.” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free August...eight months "in" on release and still...the struggle...

TGIF | 8.27.21

In a week of disturbing incidents... so many... too many... I thought a bit of a calm might be just the thing. Just a bit to allow us to take a breath... so we can remind ourselves to breathe. Thinking about not thinking — Because this week thinking is a bit...

Greetings Unravelers! This week I have the big reveal of my summer mystery knit. Let's face it, sometimes mystery knits sound exciting but the end results...not so much. I have knit many a mystery shawl that are never, ever worn. It is a sad thing to invest time to...

Renewed and refreshed? | 8.23.21

Just to show you all how completely out of sync my brain is... I thought that today was the day to update you all on my word. Good thing that I have one more week for that so that I can try and do something with my word this month because I have basically avoided my...

Good Things Friday | 8.13.21

My plan was to post something this morning to let you all know that I will be taking a little blogging break next week. I am not going anywhere, but I am in need of a recharge of my brain...creativity...etc. But last night some huge storms rolled in and with one very...

It has been a slow week for making this week. But!! I am on my second sleeve and happy to have this easy to pick up and put down project right now. But it is just all so much of a grey blob, isn't it? I thought I'd share the ribbon I found to cover the steeks... I...

Sometimes Monday | 8.9.21

Is for seeking input! Last week we had a wee break in the heat and humidity, but that all ended over the weekend. This week is supposed to be warm and so humid. But that break...it makes me think about moving out of this season and easing into autumn. It's been such a...

Greetings dear Unravelers! How on earth is it possibly August??? I have a finish this week, yes Shakerag is done! And I love it very much and am contemplating making another one! Shoulder seaming woes and all! Yes... it was a bitch and a half to seam... somehow the...

Sometimes Monday’s | 8.2.21

Are beautifully overcast and almost chilly enough to need a sweater! This morning it feels like a switch has been turned off as August ushered in some much cooler nights. This paired with the now noticeably darker mornings and earlier darker evenings brings the...

The Good, Bad, and Downright Disappointing

The Good, Bad, and Downright Disappointing

Or, a "Currently" update... I have not done a "currently" update for a very long time. Too long, maybe. Anyways, one has kind of been rattling around in my brain so I thought I'd share a bit. Sadly, it is not all of it is good... but that is often life, right?...

This week you have a nicely folded dark square of knitting paired with a lovely start of a new project... not what I expected but it is what it is.... I know I said last week that I would have my Shakerag Top finished and while the *knitting* is done... it still needs...

FOMO (fear of missing out) is the enemy of valuing your own time. — Andrew Yang This month, Carolyn encouraged us to have fun...and I spent a good bit of time thinking about how to work fun into my word...release. So I started by filling in my clouds with what filled...

A Q and A Post | 7.23.21

Happy Friday as we welcome the last week of July. The week has had the rug pulled out from under it a bit which is, sadly, going to push back our trip to Michigan... until October. I am trying to stay focused on the positive but there is not much positive in any of...

Summer making is just so good! I have two "Moon Rise" coasters completed... and they are perfect! A combination of hand stitching and machine stitching... I appliqued the moons on, then I sat at the machine for less than 15 minutes to sew them together. Then I spent...

Sometimes Monday | 7.19.21

Brings new things! A rainy weekend meant that I spent more time indoors (and got a jump on the week's tasks!) But that is okay because have a bit of a pattern puzzle to put together and some tools to find! (Hello, grommet setter!) So thanks to that weekend rain, my...

Good Things | 7.16.21

Hullo, Friday! Like clockwork, you arrive bringing with you the weekend, which might be the best constant ever. Last night my "new" book club finished Good Talk. It seemed most fitting that we met in the Lincoln Gallery for our final discussion. The conversations...

Greetings Unravelers! Happy (almost) mid-July! (a statement that does not even seem remotely possible!) Despite that fact...my world of the Great Summer Slow Down is full of so many good things! I have a finish that I, sadly, cannot yet share. But I wanted to talk a...
