Seasonal reading

I can tell that summer is on its way just by looking at my coffee table reading. Knitting and Crocheting books are gradually making room for food books and memoirs, or those best-of-both-worlds kind of books: food memoirs.

Whatever you wish for

I hope you don’t mind if I put on my sales hat for a moment.  I hate wearing that thing, but if I leave it off for too long, I don’t sell things, and if I don’t sell things, I can’t buy more craft supplies (or, more importantly, supplement my family’s income) and we just […]

I never showed you this fabric that arrived a few weeks ago. I got a fantastic deal on the three colors of jersey and the Irish linen on the bottom. $2/yard or less, if I remember correctly. It made the $16/yard price tag on the top fabric much easier to swallow. That top fabric is […]
