So, at Midnight, Eastern Daylight Time (or maybe before then, if I decide to go to bed early) I will be pulling the plug on Polka Dot Creations. I was realizing the other day that choosing June 30th as my last day is actually somewhat appropriate. I officially opened PDC (with all of the correct […]Read More: Last day.
My blogging rhythm is becoming predictable lately. Sheets and granny squares, taking turns, with nothing in between. Well, the sheet swap is winding down, so there will be less of that soon. And I’m all caught up with the sampler assignments, so I will only be doing a post about that once a week at […]Read More: Why, look, it’s another square!
…and counting! I haven’t had a chance to glance at my Sheet Swap spreadsheet – let alone update it – in the last few days, so I can’t really tell you how many more sets will be coming after this, but I do think we might be getting another 5 to 8 of them. We […]Read More: Five more boxes
I loved this week’s Granny Square Sampler squares, with their circle-in-a-square themes. It’s got my wheels seriously turning in the direction of a new blanket design. Do I really need to make another blanket? No, probably not. Is that going to stop me? No, probably not. I am amassing enough of a collection now, that […]Read More: And the grannies keep on coming
And the sheets just keep trickling in. Check out that purple set! Most of these are either familiar to me in that I’ve seen the patterns before, or familiar in the way certain combinations of colors can be familiar. But purple? That’s a new one on me.Read More: More trickles
This was the full collection of my squares for Blair’s Granny Square Sampler crochet-along as of Saturday morning. I say “was” because I have since made another 5 squares, but that’s for another post on another day… I was eager to get to Week 3, and I must say, I really, really like this variety […]Read More: More grannying-along
The first three sheet swap packages have arrived, and I’m told several more are on their way. My poor postal carrier is really going to have it in for me. Between the (many, heavy) packages going out, and now these packages coming in… well, I could swear I hear her grumbling under her breath when […]Read More: Trickling in
I have been living and breathing Polka Dot Creations for the last two weeks. When I am not packing and shipping orders, I’m re-counting inventory, or processing orders. One some level it’s quite amusing to me that in order to be able to stop doing these things that bring me little joy, I need to […]Read More: A side track
I found a pretty white sheath dress on sale for an outrageously hard-to-pass-up price at Van Heusen last month, and I was so happy with the way it looked on me, I went back and bought another one. (These days, I rarely find clothes that don’t make me feel self-conscious, let alone actually happy with […]Read More: Sea foam
Whose idea was it to have a gigantic sale the same week that there are FOUR end-of-school-year events and a big-deal family party? I sometimes forget that I am but one person, only to be reminded of the fact in no uncertain terms, when I keep dropping all of the balls I am juggling. I […]Read More: Busy. So busy.
