We spent Sunday with family at my aunt & uncle’s house in Bordentown, NJ. The street directly behind theirs really does it up for Halloween, and I thought you might enjoy a few photos. (It’s too bad all of my nighttime shots came out looking terrible – I really need to practice taking pictures in […]Read More: A stroll down Witch Way
Month: October 2008
I wasn’t happy with the way my wrist warmer came out, so I bought a book & learned some new methods of casting-on, that would leave me with a less loopy, curvy edge. I also learned a new stitch. (Until I bought the book, I didn’t even realize there was more than one kind of […]Read More: Save me
I was accused earlier this week of being an old lady. Ok, so I was sitting on the couch with a quilt on my lap. Knitting. And watching The Bob Newhart Show. Oh, dear. Maybe I should watch The Office instead. I’m not giving up the quilt, though. And as far as the knitting goes, […]Read More: Knitty gritty
Today is my grandmother’s birthday. Since a lady doesn’t discuss her age, I won’t presume to blab it to everyone here on her behalf. Let’s just say, she’s one year away from a big number which is one decade away from a huge number. And that’s all I’ll say about that. What I can talk […]Read More: Hanky panky
The completed quilt series
I took my time, and over the course of several days, finished up the now infamous yellow quilt, and with that completed the whole series. Four oversized lap quilts with matching pillows in Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow – one set for each of us. Now that they’re finished, I thought you might like to […]Read More: The completed quilt series
Reasons to be Cheerful
I think I’m overdue for some RTBC around here, so I’m just going to go for it. 1. Feeling the fog slowly lifting after spending the better part of a week battling a cold (is it me, or do those nasty things linger longer the older you get?). I’m still congested a bit, and more […]Read More: Reasons to be Cheerful
Blankie O’ Love
So, as you know, I’ve had a cold for the last few days, and I’ve been using the enforced down time to bind two quilts. And through all of that time, I’ve often had a little five-year-old companion. He hops up on the couch, finds the small crook behind my knees, and installs himself there […]Read More: Blankie O’ Love
Well, I did it. I bound my first quilt. Well, actually it’s my third quilt, but it’s the first one with a binding. You know what I mean. I’m typing under the influence of decongestants, so I really can’t be held responsible for the clarity or eloquence (or lack thereof) of my words. It’s never […]Read More: Bound
It seems to me, if a girl is going to have to get by on five hours of sleep, and if she also has a scratchy throat and can feel the congestion building in her head by the minute, then she might be tempted to spend as much time as possible sitting in a cozy […]Read More: Peaceful rhythm
Down with ugly recycled packaging!
I regularly receive boxes full of books, magazines & DVDs on my doorstep, and I also send boxes full of books, magazines & DVDs back out to polymer clay addicts everywhere. As such, it only makes sense that some of those first boxes should be reused to serve the second purpose, don’t you think? I […]Read More: Down with ugly recycled packaging!
