I am venturing into a new territory this spring – Embroidery! I am inspired by pictures such as Embroidery Doodling from The Muddy Cat. I can only hope mine comes out just as nice. On my hoop right now is a cross stitch project that is almost done. I am playing around with some MLP FIM or… Continue reading Stitching into Spring
Luck of the Irish Happy St. Patrick’s Day
Happy St. Patrick's Day - This morning was a perfect morning to do some sea glass hunting during low tide. I found a lot of green today! The rest of the day will be spent listening to Irish music, watching the Bruins, eating corned beef and cabbage and working on some crochet or knit. Haven't… Continue reading Luck of the Irish Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Granny squares are instant gratification - quicker than a dishcloth, speedier than a headband and it is so enjoyable to combine colors.… Continue reading Granny Squares, Snow and Big Bang Theory
Be a Princess
I am still in Bow Mode! My daughter Nikki had the idea to embellish the headbands with a little bit of Disney Inspiration. This resulted in Belle, Ariel, Tinker Bell and Snow White type headbands. The lower right one was going to be Alice, but I didn't like the color, so just a Plain Jane,… Continue reading Be a Princess
