TWiP: Boston, Blankets, and Babies!

Last week was jam-packed, and I took a lot of images, so I’m just going to muzzle myself now and get right into it πŸ™‚

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…


Instagram πŸ“±: I think all eggs should have green shells. It’s such a pretty color.

Instagram πŸ“±: Baked a cake for Eamonn this morning and then forgot to post this picture before a few people came over and helped us eat the cake 😊 Celebrating 8th grade graduation #teameam #eamnation #eamforthestars

365 πŸ“·: 2017 189/365 – The young cousins came over today, and pulled all kinds of things out of our long-neglected dress-up trunk, including this hat, which is currently being modeled by my own little minion.

Instagram πŸ“±: Aidan, master of the skies 🌈 [Taken in the Barnes and Noble parking lot.]


Instagram πŸ“±: Sunday morning, you are my favorite morning.

365 πŸ“·: 2017 190/365 – We sometimes have huge messes to clean up after a party, but this isn’t bad at all.

Instagram πŸ“±: I’m starting a new squircle lap blanket… One circle down, 79 more (and all of the square backgrounds) to go! 😜 #pdc


365 πŸ“·: 2017 191/365 – I started a new blanket last night. I’m six little circles in. I really hope I can crank this out quickly enough that I don’t lose enthusiasm before I finish – it’s always a risk with something as big as a blanket!

Instagram πŸ“±: Monday night #crochet and Loch Ness on #acorntv


Instagram πŸ“±: Just put the finishing touches on this #pdcbangles order so I can get it on its way! I like the colors and patterns this customer chose πŸ’Ÿ #pdc

365 πŸ“·: 2017 192/365 – Say hello to Uncle Neil and niece #3! We’ve got 3 of each now, ranging in age from 21.5 years to 14 hours πŸ˜‰ [Taken at the hospital.]

Instagram πŸ“±: Happy birthday to my new niece πŸ’“ [Taken at the hospital.]


365 πŸ“±: 2017 193/365 – Packing up for a weekend in Quincy, MA.


Instagram πŸ“±: It’s tiger lily time again!

Instagram πŸ“±: That time I had my yarn order delivered to the hotel because there was no way I was going to let 3 days of prime crocheting time go to waste while my supplies sat in the mailbox at home 😜 [Taken in the hotel in Quincy, MA.]

365 πŸ“·: 2017 194/365 – Boston is about 1/2 hour away, but we can see it from our hotel room. [Taken in the hotel.]


Instagram πŸ“±: Enjoyed my annual pilgrimage to @gather_here… Got myself fabric for two @100actsofsewing Dress No. 1s. 😊 [Taken at Gather Here in Cambridge.]

365 πŸ“±: 2017 195/365 – I’m glad these guys are such good sports about cming to Gather Here with me every year. They’re even holding my fabric while I finish shopping πŸ™‚ [Taken at Gather Here.]

Instagram πŸ“±: Pool time! (And crochet-by-the-pool time!) [Taken in the hotel.]

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
