I have that same bag (in that same colour!!!) and love mine as much as you love yours. There is just a slot/pocket for everything I want to haul around; it's not too big, not too small. Just right. Maybe we should call this the "goldilocks bag"????

I actually had two loaves of bread to take to book club. (phew) Where we left off.....my mixer was going to knead the bread for me....for 20 minutes. Check. And the motor didn't blow out or anything. The dough was not looking exactly as Vivian described, but she kept saying... Continue reading

Book club meets tonight. About 3 times a year, we review a cookbook, cook from it, and break bread together. Tonight is cookbook night. Deep Run Roots by Vivian Howard is our book, and I haven't read it. Fortunately, I did read my recipe Saturday....and discovered I had a two-day... Continue reading

The last couple weeks, I've been reading.....a bunch. Writing pages every day. Taking copious numbers of photographs. Collecting photos from the internet. Editing and rearranging a whole lot of old photos. And even squeezing in a little knitting every so often. So why no blog posts? Anyone want to read... Continue reading

Pixel-rising socks are done. Fini. Finally. 6 months....most of which was spent in time-out for no good, apparent reason. I like them. A lot. And probably what I like most about them is the fact that they used (used up in a few instances) some very small, orphan left-over balls... Continue reading

4 strands of yarn held together....sizes 10.5, 11, and 13 needles. Not my usual project by any means...but it did use up a whopping 8 skeins of yarn. Will I wear it? ????? Continue reading

it's the small things and quiet things that keep many of us sane in this increasingly crazy world. Love your space here.

a lavender festival.... my camera and I chased bees.... a perfect low-humidity, sunny (if a bit too windy for the camera!), road-trip-kinda day.... we had lavender tea, cut bundles of lavender, bought tomatoes at a roadside stand, hunted antique treasures, lunched at a funky little seafood food truck in a...

I think you are the only one who 'got' the song part!!! :)
YOU were the reason I started that pixel rise sock!!!! I'm afraid the second one is going to be waiting for awhile...not that I don't love it. I simply haven't been in the sock-knitting mood lately. very strange for me, but true.

I'm counting this as a finished object. The fact that it is unusable in this state is totally immaterial. I'm ready to move on. I'm suffering from the 'summer of my discontent' already. (sorry about the paraphrase, Wm Shakespeare) It's hot. It's humid. My hair is curling out of control.... Continue reading

the narrow strips are 12 stitches. the other strips are random widths. by just making strips, this has stayed very very portable!!!
