As I write this post, it is a rainy Saturday morning, and I am sitting on the bed, listening to a morning playlist I threw together, sipping coffee, and savoring a fig bar. It’s not a bad way to start a day.Read More: TWiP: It’s May!
It’s been a creative week. I made some wash cloths for the kitchen, two new types of tools to keep in my shop, and scones from last summer’s berry harvestRead More: TWiP: Making Things

This week I’ve made an effort to use my Canon 80D wherever possible. What I lose in convenience by not using my handy phone, I more than make up for in quality, I think. It’s not that my phone doesn’t take lovely pictures. In fact, my current phone is orders of magnitude better than the camera I was using when I started this blog. But there’s something about a DSLR photo that just looks better.Read More: TWiP: Newfound Punctuality

I finished crocheting a mandala for Mom last Saturday. We went to the NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival on a whim on Sunday. I swatched for a new knitting project on Monday. Our old van that would not start got towed out of the driveway. I lit a couple of candles. That’s pretty much it for this mid-September week 🙂Read More: TWiP: NJ Fiber Festival and Other Stories
Last year I declared that the rest of the world was welcome to their pumpkin spice addiction, and that I would instead be quietly hording all of the maple products, thankyouverymuch.
Well, it turns out the rest of the world wants in on the maple thing, too. Never mind that maple is actually a late winter / early spring product when it comes right down to it. Somehow it is becoming the Next Big Fall Flavor.Read More: TWiP: Maple is the new Pumpkin Spice
