A bit of this and that…

I don’t have much to write about today. I’m mainly sharing pictures. Why? Because it’s sunny and gorgeous out, I slept late so I am missing a chunk of the day, and I’m itching to go here and stitch: Hey, don’t laugh. It is a very redneck set up, but it works! I made this…

Two more weeks…

We had a good laugh last week when one of the DJs H works with announced there would be two more weeks of winter predicted by the groundhog. Expectedly, he caught a lot of flack for that. This guy has a tendency to not research anything. I’m actually ok with there being six more weeks, as I…

I used the machine. I wasn’t sure if it was interfacing at first, not until I ironed the pieces. Yep, interfacing. Fusible. I’m glad I sewed to the appropriate side!…

Feeling in between…

I feel a bit off today. I woke up too early and had sketchy sleep afterwards. It’s made me feel tired and cranky and not sure how to shape my day. I had some options. I could go to the yarn store and hang out where the annual yarn hop is going on. But I’m…
