OMGosh–Why do I do this to myself?

Jeeze Louise!  I’m nuts!  [I KNOW!!!]  But still … We’re less than a week out from Christmas II, and I’ve got so much to do!  It’s okay.  Deep breath.  We’ll get there.  So, while we are keeping up with two high school… Read More

Still No Studio Time …

But – I have a bedroom, and a BED!!!  And, a new desk for our bedroom ~ gotta love Craigslist!  (The desk is on the ‘sitting room’ side of our room, and not yet ready for pictures … but it’s coming along. … Read More

Canadian Flu ….

AKA – the CRUD that keeps on giving!  Some time ago I posted about a URI (cold) that I had.  I still have it.  It has been renamed, to give credit to its maker.  Yep, about 6 weeks ago, I worked with… Read More

Some things that I learned this week …

Krampus … Wowzer!  Who knew (?!?)  And yet, I feel I should have … Those German’s sure knew how to keep their kids in line.  None of THEIR nursery rhymes/fairy tales have a (watered-down, politically correct, Americanized) base/foundation in anything that WE were raised with… Read More

Busy with baby steps …

I’m still a knitting-maniac while I wait not-so-patiently to be feeling better.  Here are my latest quick-knit projects.     And, I tried my hand at chainmaille (jewelry style, of course) … I like it.  So, I’ve been surfing for much needed… Read More

Knitting central …
