What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I finally got some pictures uploaded and sorted from our trip to North Dakota.
That bear almost caught me!
Other than the selling off of things, we mostly relaxed and went to the playground (with Tegue) a lot.

I affectionately refer to this slide as My Nemesis. Twenty five years ago, I fell off the top off it [...]

Road Trip

I’ll be away from the blog for the next couple of weeks, off to  North Dakota with my siblings to handle some of my Dad’s affairs. I didn’t write about it when it happened, but he died late last year and now it’s time to deal with what’s left. Paul and I are driving, which [...]

TNNA Roundup

I’m back from The National Needlearts Association trade show (aka TNNA) and a whirlwind trip to Laredo (my other half spoke to 300 kids about dinosaurs) so it’s time for my report! This year I made a concerted effort to take more pictures, so I at least have enough for my blog post.

The show kicked [...]

The Knitting Nest

Thanks to everyone who came out to my book signing and class at The Knitting Nest in Austin. It was so nice to see some old friends and meet some new ones. One woman told me she had made my Raspberry Beret pattern at least 30 times–wow!!

Here are the lovely ladies from my Tegue’s Jingle [...]

Denver Dinner

Last week when I was in Colorado, thanks to the magic of  Twitter, I was able to get together with a couple of designer/author/crocheter/knitter friends for dinner. What a treat! It was like a miniature version of the designer dinner that Marlaina put together for us at TNNA.

But the cutest part was that both Marly [...]

Scenes from LA

I finally sifted through my LA photos and uploaded a bunch of them to a flickr set. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Downtown LA.

Looking up at the Griffith Observatory. I love the simplicity of the building and of course, there were great views.

Oh, and on the way back we stopped at Chiricahua National Monument [...]

TNNA 2011

All’s quiet on the blog front because I went on a wintertime work vacation. Well, sort of a vacation and sort of work, but mostly fun catching up with friends–and this time Paul wanted to join me. Perhaps because it’s a little pathetic that when I fly away for weekends, I rarely see more than [...]

Kid’N Ewe Fiber Fest

Yesterday Nikki and I headed out to Boerne, TX for the annual Kid’n Ewe Fiber Festival. This was my first year attending, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  There were plenty of vendors selling yarn and wares, and it was low on the “frenzy” that you might see at bigger festivals. In fact, when [...]

Quilt Market + Crochet Too!

This weekend my sister and I headed down to Houston for Quilt Market. To be honest, I’m not sure exactly why I went, but people have been asking me for the past two years whether or not I would be there, so I decided to give it a shot. There was so much fun quilting [...]

Another Hobby?

If you ever run into me at the yarn store, you’ll probably hear me mention all of the fun things you can do with said yarns, and then, inevitably, a customer will ask whether I weave/spin/felt, etc. My response is always “I’d love to, but I don’t need another hobby!” And yet it appears that [...]
