Happy Easter! And other thoughts.


Happy Easter to all!

So sorry I’ve neglected this site.  Will try to get better about it these days.

I’ve a new job and absolutely love it!

I’ve finished three projects thus far this year.  JJ’s hat, a smock dress for Sami, and a tied fleece blanket for Sami.IMG_20150405_102626


(Sorry, I don’t have a photo of JJ’s hat or Sami’s fleece blanket as of yet)

JJ’s hat is an orange crocheted hat that I made with no pattern.  It used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in Pumpkin. Hope to make more for sell on my Etsy site.
Sami’s dress is made out of a mock smock fabric from JoAnn Fabric and ribbon I found in my drawer.
Sami’s fleece blanket was made out of blizzard fleece, also from JoAnn Fabric. Made a matching smaller version for her baby doll.

That’s all for now.  Time for some Star Trek and bed as there is work/school in the morning.


Some Updates and Stuff


Welcome to 2014, the start of new beginning and finishing up old ones.

Here’s what is new:

Starting classes towards nursing school.  I started my online biology course this week and so far it has been very exciting.  I’ve forgotten how much fun science can be!

DH Danno started a new migraine treatment recently.  Very excited if this works out. Also restarting his freelance biz.  Go Danno!

DD Sami started messing around with a new child-size guitar.  Still debating to start her on dance or music in a couple years.

DS JJO started rolling over and eating rice cereal.

Here’s some projects I’m finishing up:

My Strawberries in a Basket quilt.  Just started working on the binding!  Hope to get it finished by my birthday next month, but who knows.

Log Cabin panel quilt. I started added the borders, but then my needle broke.  Until I install a new one, this, and my other sewing, will have to wait.

Baby quilts.  I’m still trying to get more baby quilts done for the etsy shop.  I have two done, two needing binding, and two needing ties and binding. When I get these done, I will probably go back and take more photos of vintage items from the house, too.

I’ve gone back to crocheting, too.  I have coasters, potholders, washclothes, and one afghan.  Hoping to finish up these projects, too.

So my new year is jammed packed.  How is yours?
