The Drawstring Beret

Ever since I saw this hat in Eugenia Kim’s book, Saturday Night Hat, I had a strange fascination with wanting to make it. I thought it was kind of silly, so I made this one instead. But this weekend I came back to the book, and it still called to me. You see, last week it [...]

Little Surprises

I met my friend for coffee this morning to give her this hat, a custom job she requested for her 2-year-old granddaughter. To be honest this hat was a bit of a pest, I must have ripped it out three times. Something about the nubby yarn (it’s easy to loose your stitches) and my intent focus on making [...]

New Issue: Crochet Today

As promised, here it is: my blatantly self promotional post. Just to prove I’ve been working on some worky type things. Here are two little projects of mine from the new March/April issue of Crochet Today.
The crafty cuffs and spiral change purse are mine. They’re fun and quick, let me tell you. I think [...]

Feast For One

I am all alone this week, as Paul is down in Texas for the College Art Association. Cue “All By Myself.” We went to the grocery store before he left (did I mention that I don’t really drive…yet…I hope) and I stocked up on some stuff I’ve missed eating. I finally gave in to the completely [...]

Winter Fest

Yesterday I convinced Paul to take me to Winter Fest, which had a kind of stock show/county fair vibe.  I was most interested in the quilts and the petting zoo (yay!).  The quilts were largely traditional, but there was one with some amazing feedsack fabrics. I didn’t take any pictures though, so you’ll have to [...]

Happy Love Day

Here I am, sliding in under the wire (let’s face it: just barely, since most of you are not on mountain time) with my V-day well wishes. I had such good intentions this year. I bought a pack of cards in January, kept reminding myself to send them, and….well, no, it didn’t happen.  I love [...]

Fits and Starts

Not much posting lately. I’ve been making stuff- just not necessarily stuff I can/feel like showing yet. I did finish the lining on my sewing bag, though.

It has a pocket for scissors, a pen, and whatever else. I took it to Bernina Club last week, where I made this heart potholder.

It was a good first time [...]

Sulu Swap

I recently did a swap with Susan of Su-lu Design after I looked all over town (i.e. in 2 beading shops and the craft stores)  for some large ear wires. We’ve never met in real life, but we both lived in Astoria and shopped at the same grocery store for who knows how long. Then I [...]

Banana Nut Bread

I’ve had a serious hankering to bake lately, probably due to everyone’s lovely blog posts ….and maybe also to temperatures in the tens. This weekend I made some yummy banana nut bread from my mom’s recipe.

In addition to my two bread pans, I scooped some batter into these heart shaped foil tins so I could [...]

And the winners are…

According to the random number generator, the winners of my giveaway are Liz Elayne (who picked a cake hat) and Jenny Harada (who gets to pick a necklace- I’m emailing you now!). Thanks for playing everyone. I’ll be back later today with some banana nut bread from the weekend.
