Happy Earth Day: Raised Bed Gardening!

For my birthday last week, Paul got me a whole bunch of gardening stuff. Ever since we moved back to Texas I’ve been talking about possibly, maybe making a garden out back like the one my grandmother used to have. But you know, it’s a lot of work. And I had plenty of other excuses. [...]


We made it to San Antonio last Friday, and are still trying to get everything put away. It’s quite a big job, since there’s a lot of cleaning and clearing out to be done. But I knew we were home when I pulled my finished crochet blanket out of the truck and put it on [...]

On the Road Again…

I’m writing tonight from Wheatland, Wyoming to tell you that Etsy’s Storque has posted a free project from my book on their website, go check it out! (To entice you without giving it away, it’s the easiest, most beginner friendly project in the book.)
We (and by we, I mean Paul) did a ton of driving [...]

More on the Blog Tour and Portland

Today’s blog tour stop for Crochet Adorned is with Kayte Terry of This is Love Forever.  Kayte reviewed the book and did a cool collage and discussion of crochet in fashion (and how it goes from runway to crafter and back to runway)– don’t miss it! Also, Jennifer Perkins posted a Crochet Adorned inpsired doily [...]

Look Ma, I’m on TV!

This morning Paul and I headed over to KATU in Portland to do AM Northwest. It was a fun experience– I’ve never actually been on TV before, although I used to prepare people to go on TV when I worked at Newsweek. I showed off some of the book projects and taught Helen Raptis (the [...]

Portland and Bozeman Book Events

Now it’s time to announce my “Real Life” book events- which start next week!
But first, let me show you a sneak peek from the book, one of my favorite projects: the Butterfly Apron!

Accent your favorite (or new favorite!) apron with a butterfly pocket and trim. I like this trim because you work it as you [...]

My Mini “Vacation”

Last weekend my sisters Ann and Amy came up with my nephew Tegue to see the sites of Montana. Paul and I took them to see a waterfall at Hyalite Reservoir, where Tegue actually did a lot of the hiking himself. He was kind of annoyed that he couldn’t get in the waterfall, but once [...]

The County Fair

This Friday (our “Sunday” according to Paul’s work schedule) we headed over to the fairgrounds to go to the Gallatin County Fair. We are far from theme parks and diverse food options here, and therefore I was very excited to have some fun. Of course, the actual driving force in getting us to the fair [...]

Book Winner and Montana Landscapes

Sorry for my latent posting of the winner of Lotta Jasndotter’s Simple Sewing for Babies. I went to ye olde random number generator and it picked #31- RedHead. I will be emailing you for your address, congrats! I loved reading all of your comments about sewing for babies and which babies you would sew for. [...]

Fiber Day!

Today was a lovely day of fibery fun, organized by The Yarn Shop. Watching the weather channel last night (rain, rain, rain) I was worried that it wouldn’t happen, but luckily we only got a few sprinkles.
The day started out with demos on wool washing, dyeing, and carding. I personally will probably never (well, never [...]
