I don’t really do any winter sports either. So I totally get the being stuck inside part. I’m terrible about exercising though, so having to shovel is good for me. And I can’t believe you’ve had such a warm winter! We’re headed to Cordova for the weekend for little man’s baptism and I’m looking forward to warmer weather for a few days! Longer summer *always* sounds good! xo~

It's doing it again right now. Snowing. Thank goodness Joe built a plow. (Out of a riding mower without a mowing deck and a plow blade - both given to him by people moving). He taught the girl how to drive it and this last storm she scooped snow to the edge of our ever shrinking driveway and he shoveled... Continue reading

Yeah! Another mystery bundle vote! I think I’ll do them with & without yarn. And of course lots of goodies in there…. like patchwork squares I’ve made and maybe some vintage bits and pieces. Treasures!

I think that is exactly what it is! I am looking forward to open windows and sewing/creating in the studio in just a few more weeks….. Come on spring!

It’s one big shelf from IKEA. There is a whole post on the studio here :: http://www.gypsyforest.com/welcome_to_gypsy_forest/2014/01/welcome-to-the-studio.html . That fabric just piles up before you know it, right? One pretty little piece at a time ;)

I LOVE these shelves too! They are so versatile! I’ve seen people use a board to divide the cube diagonally so you can put yarn in each half….. many yarn shops do it…. I need to figure that out next. It would help the yarn falling on my head problem ;)

The light in there is so generous….. it makes that fabric look so pretty!! But I’m looking forward to sharing some of it soon as I pare things down :)

Haha! I have a feeling we’ll be too busy for that. It’s going to be a whirlwind of a trip! But we can’t wait to see you!! xo

Yes! I totally agree on the monkey mind thing…. and we too have been able to part with far more than I thought was hiding in those closets!

I suddenly decided to clean out closets. I'm not sure what it was. To be honest, it's usually not the mess. It's usually something I'm thinking about that is totally unrelated to the mess. Decluttering helps clear my mind. And the best time to get rid of piles of stuff is when your mind is preoccupied. It takes a lot... Continue reading

Thank you :) I’m looking forward to using up a good chunk of my stash this year while knitting…….. and finding lots of fun hat patterns too!

She has beautiful patterns, doesn’t she? The blanket sounds amazing! I’ve yet to take on something that size…… someday. When our cat no longer lives here…. he like to chew on handknits!

Isn’t it beautiful! It’s just left & right decreasing. The pattern is so easy to remember after a few rows. It’s awesome!

Oh you spinners…… I am so impressed with that ability! Try as I might, I am no spinner. I just sold my wheel and hope to purchase a loom sometimes this year. The doll blanket sounds lovely though! And of course it will be loved by little hands at you place too…. which is just the perfect thing for anything handspun (lots of love!)

Yes! Especially when it knits up like this one….. it’s just so pretty! I’m on to the see stitch one next….. seeing as I have a fresh supply of beautiful bulky yarn :)

I think it will be a fun year…… and I hope to get through some of the yarn in my stash too! So many single skeins picked up from trips here and there….

This year I wanted to take on a few longterm creative projects. Nothing huge, just a practice of coming back to something regularly. For my knitting, I thought of hats. Hats are such a quick, easy & fun project. I love the luxury of picking out fancy yarn for a hat. It's affordable to splurge when it is just one... Continue reading
