not just crochet:: how i spent a fall weekend

Because I am a homeowner, of course I spent much of the weekend fixing stuff. Stuff like cleaning the garage & gluing broken crap & vacuum maintenance.

Because duh, that’s most weekends. Amirite?!

BUT, because I am awesome at being a hermit and never leave my house, I was also able to finish up a few more desirable projects too.

My C~A~L socks are done & entered in the drawing for loads of squishy, pretty yarn…


My ivy has been hung successfully…

it took 2 tries because I am pitiful at measuring sometimes 



Alex’s girlfriend brought over these 2 for a play-date…PRECIOUS!


Drumroll please…

I finished a spice rack up-cycling friggin masterpiece…


Thank you to Martha for the donated old spice rack! My buttons are so OCD happy now😃

Thanks for stopping by!

crochet:: meandering through a day off

Labor Day in the USA…

it’s way too hot & muggy to enjoy the outdoors…

a good excuse for me to crochet the day away…


I’ve just finished a Husker scarf, almost done with a pair of C~A~L socks, then to complete a plant hanger for the ivy I recently bought…


But first, my lap must be overtaken by a cat…


thanks for stopping by!

not crochet:: memory box

I’ve never told you my baby’s name before, but it’s Alex.

And well, since he is larger & more of a badass than I, it’s probably safe to disclose that information 😀

I made him a card album & memory box this weekend since he has graduated & become an adult.



He graduated in May, so I figure 3 months to get it done isn’t so bad. Baby shoes included:)

food:: it’s harvest thyme

just a few snaps of my first go at dehydrating herbs

Lesson learned:: do not believe the directions

Replace with:: objects in dehydrator may take 6 times the suggested number of hours to dry

crochet:: a tiny (p)update

This little guy is too entirely cute not to show you what he looks like in his yoda hat.


Told you, I did😉

crochet:: pinafore feedback

Since I’ve gotten such great feedback recently, I’ve just got to share more.

Joanne found pictures of my toddler pinafore, which led her here.

She was gracious and sent me WiP photo :)


Nice job Joanne ~ and thank you so very much for sharing.

Thanks for stopping by!

crochet:: i love feedback

The other day I received a lovely email from Kim T.

She had taken one of my projects from way back when, and ran with it.

Check out the AWESOME pug mobile she conjured up!
