Hip & hipper- Sort of!

After the sheets have been changed and the house cleaned, a run to the grocery to replenish I find myself puttering. Deciding what new projects are calling, organizing my space, even catching up on some ironing. In the middle of the putter I pull out a length of faux leather—- not because I’m vegan but […]

Too Pooped

I’m TIRED. Loving having my youngest home for a long visit—– but dang. I’m tired. My Foundation for Friday is that I need to remember I need less miles and more naps! There have been tears, and laughter….. smiles and jokes old and new. Miles (and miles) on the bike, trips to the beach and […]

Fall Banner & Front Porch

As much as I loved the flag printed burlap banners for the front porch (and never got tired of them) it was time for something new when Labor Day was over. I chose the same style of banner and used burlap in a medium brown and a light natural. The brown banners were unadorned but […]

Rain Rain Go Away

It’s tough to have family in town when we’re stuck in a rainy loop. There has been sun, enough to get out a bit, enough for a beach day, enough for bike rides here and there. AND…. when you go out in the crazy weather you’re often rewarded with a shot like this from Driftwood […]

Foundation Friday (and every day) is For Family!

My daughter arrived on Thursday—– big fun happening here to include beaching, touring and hanging out. I hope to have some biscuit making lessons as I’ve made her a ‘biscuit makin’ kit’ like her sibs, and I would really like to have her hand in slipcovering a chair. I think that might just be way […]

There for the span of a few days the evenings were cooler…….. you could just about feel a change in seasons. Just about. Then this week the weather is back to hot, hot and more hot. So it goes. And for the most part it really is okay—- I know when it’s February and the […]

Favorite Cable Blocks & Cinderella

I’m blocking away after taking time watching the Emmy’s weaving in all of the ends on the finished blocks of the cabled afghan. Feels GREAT that the most hated of tasks is done. Why is it hated? I mean, not like it’s hard or anything. Must be like ironing— you know how to do it […]

Dear Monday

Dear Monday, I have caught up (that is no more cabled afghan knitting) with the second afghan gift to be. And…… it has been sooooooo hot. Minimum bike riding ocean running just flat out HOT! The weather has broken so it is not 497 degrees out in the studio but only 180. Manageable by turning […]

Foundation Friday & Keepin’ On

As I approach the pulling my hair out phase with the latest afghan from the Cabled Afghan Knit Along on Creativebug—– I always wonder how can you keep ANY project that takes awhile to complete fresh, interesting—– pleasurable???  Instead of being bored, tossing aside the project or moving on with a UFO to your credit?
