Fruitcake Softie, For the Fun of It

I’m not one to make a lot of purely-fun projects (I like to make things I “need” so I don’t end up with piles of clutter), but I decided to give a last-minute go to the Holiday Softie Awards.

I started last night, using mostly fabrics from my Denyse Schmidt fat quarter pack. (Let’s see, I’ve [...]

I can knit! + Anna Schuleit

I admit it: for the longest time, I thought that I would crochet everything. Knitting didn’t appeal to me: all of that swatching, counting, making sure things fit. But when I saw some beginner knitting classes at the local yarn shop, I decided it was time. After all, they were only $15/class. I knit this [...]

Go outside!

Yesterday’s weather was gorgeous. I’m not quite understanding how the city can be blanketed in snow one day and70 degrees and sunny the next, but I’m not complaining! It really makes me appreciate the lovely days.

These are some of the leaves popping  up around downtown. They are so pretty!! Most of them are already falling [...]


It’s already Fall, which became clear to me because of the color in the trees on the way to work.  Right after I realized this, I heard on NPR that there would be snowshowers this weekend. This seemed unbelieveable as it was nearly 80 degrees on Friday. I woke up Saturday morning excited to peep out [...]

I love…

In response to Floresita’s list, here are some things I love:
+ crisp fall days
+ grafitti (the kind that makes you smile, the kind that makes you think)
+ warm crocheted hats
+ the red groove on my index finger that comes from wool yarn passing over it again and again while crocheting
+ the extra five minutes i spend [...]

Back from Texas

Just a quick note to say we’re back from Texas. The above photo is of a Century Plant we saw in beautiful Big Bend National Park. The plant (which looks kind of like aloe) grows for about twenty five years, blooms (as above), then dies. I saw such an array of plantlife in the desert, [...]

Inspiration on the Road: Beading

I finally uploaded some of my photos from the trip down here (all out of order, of course!) and wanted to share these two from the Utah Field House of Natural History. Mostly, the place was full of fossils and dinosaurs, which, after seeing all of the shifting layers of earth on the drive down, is [...]

Badlands, Yellowstone, and off to Texas

Bear with me while I run around my new home and revel in its gorgeousness. Paul and I went to Yellowstone on Wednesday and what started out to be a kind of crummy day turned out to be spectacularly beautiful. We saw super-saturated landscapes after the rain (find the rainbow in the photo below) and had [...]

Friday: Blue

I’ve been writing all of these posts ahead of time (it’s Tuesday right now, and Paul is 5 hours from being here, not to mention Friday is my last day of work, so you can see why!). Blue is kind of a hard color for me, because I automatically imagine a darker blue, which isn’t one of [...]

Tuesday: Green

For today’s color, let’s go to the wonderful little island of Burano, in Venice, where I travelled in March. Not to be confused with Murano, the glass-making island, Burano is a colorful island known for lace-making that is about 40 minutes out on the vaporetto. I read about it in our guidebook and knew it was [...]
