Watching: For the first time ever, North & South (any version). (I don't understand how this has flown under my radar for so long.) Reading: Olive Kitteridge . It's been on my nightstand for ages! There are a lot of... Continue reading

Not long ago, an image for Berroco's Prickly Poppy passed before my eyes (while reading my weekly email from The Village Knitter, no doubt) and I was immediately in love. I was reminded of an old favorite reverse stockinette cardigan... Continue reading

Did you see the weather photo I shared on FB? The lake fly hatch must have happened right after our visit -- big & thick enough to show up on local radar!!

It wasn't spectacular, but it sure was pretty! Glad we missed the lake fly hatch -- it was big/thick enough to show up on local radar!!

Thanks Bonny! A huge hatch of "lake flies" occurred right after we were there -- a big/thick enough cloud of them that they showed up on local radar. So happy we missed them!! ;)

Before knitting -- or, rather, I should say "between" -- I did a lot of cross-stitch embroidery! I ran across these projects the other day. The stitching is finished but they've never been framed or "finished" in a way that... Continue reading

It felt so good to spend some much-needed KonMari time in my workroom on Saturday. That nice new worktable is wasted if I can't even move around the room! Over a year ago, when we cleared all of our stuff... Continue reading

It was a long-overdue, really great, and very productive weekend! I'm not very good at holding back and parceling out the goods, but I thought I'd try and only post about one thing today; the danger is that I begin... Continue reading
