100th Post

This is officially my 100th post. Woo-hoo! I figured I should do something to celebrate with y’all. I really appreciate all of your comments. Although I don’t respond to each one, I do read them and they really make my day– I hope you know that.
As a present to you, dear readers, I’m giving away one [...]

Scrappy Trash and Snow Boots

I made a little trash bag for my sewing scraps last weekend. Not just any old trash bag, but a little one that attaches to my sewing table/cutting area with velcro, for easy access and easy dumping. I saw something like it at my sewing class, and I had to have one!
It makes it slightly [...]

Dinner Challenge

I haven’t been participating in Carrie’s Dinner Challenge, mainly because there isn’t any food in the house and the grocery store seems far away. But last night I was really  hungry, kind of bored, and didn’t want to eat another fast food meal. So I came up with “What the heck can I make with [...]

Ceramics Class!

Seeing as I just signed up for my second ceramics class (starts tonight!) I thought I should finally get around to showing off my wares from the first. 

Ever since I moved here I’ve had an extreme itch to take a ceramics class. Clay is big in Montana- and I used to take classes while getting my undergrad art [...]

Brrrrrrr. RRRrrrrrr.

It’s cold outside. According to it’s -1 with a windchill of -14. Last night it was actually -22 (not sure I even want to know about the wind chill). There is lots and lots of snow on the ground and part of yesterday was spent attempting to push Paul’s truck out of the snow. [...]

Hop Hops and Sewing Bag Questions

Yesterday I recieved this beautiful pull toy in the mail from Stump Pond Toys (photo from his shop). I found his store on my daily blog cruise somehow and this was just SO cute. It’s not for my sister’s baby, or anyone else’s. It’s for me. I don’t know why, I just needed it! I love that [...]

McCall’s 5388

In an effort to use some interesting fabric I got at the NYC Craft Mafia Swap in Brooklyn this summer, I made McCall’s 5388 (View D). The fabric is super, super soft and flowy, but I had an odd amount of it, as I don’t think it’s a standard width. I knew I would have to combine it [...]

I’m a Berni-nerd!!!

It’s true. There’s no other way to describe how I dorked out last night after I went to pick up my new Bernina and took it for a spin in the intro class. I am in LOVE.  It’s there, in the back, waiting for me to pack up my old machine.
Out with the old, in with the new.

Weekend Recycling

This was the weekend where we tackled the scary closet/pantry. It holds six trash bins for plastic, glass, aluminum cans, magazines, cardboard and newspaper. I set it up when I got here because after recycling for five years, it’s in my blood! Unfortunately there’s no curbside recycling here, so we save it up and take [...]

Great Horned Owls

And now for something different.
Last night when Paul came home from the studio he asked me if I had heard the owls hooting. I was watching Mean Girls, so no, I hadn’t. We went outside to see if they were still there, tip-toeing over the ice patches so as not to scare them.
Photo from the [...]
