Forward Momentum

Happy Sunday, all! How has it already been nearly a month since I've posted? Ugh. I've been doing well. I took the week of July 5th off. I was so burned out at work and really needed a break (plus, the 5th is my birthday!) We did a couple of hikes on the 4th and… Continue reading Forward Momentum

Finished Objects – The Hopelessy Out-of-Season Edition

Hi friends! It's time for a craft roundup! Oh, what, you ask? A craft roundup of makes I finished in late winter/early spring and is now completely out of season? YEAHHHHHHHH! I'm very happy to report that these were both stash-busting projects. First up - this cowl from a book called Making Winter.

Checking In

Hi friends. It's been awhile, etc. I hope you all are doing well. The pandemic appears to be retreating in the US for the time being, so we've been having some much-needed normalcy the past couple of months. Being fully vaccinated by the end of April is a huge privilege that many of my friends… Continue reading Checking In

A Quick Spring Update

Good morning all! It's been a long, odd couple of weeks, so let's celebrate the wins, shall we? I received my first dose of the vaccine on March 31st! I was so happy and grateful to have received it. My second dose is on April 21st. My second creative non-fiction writing class ended last week.… Continue reading A Quick Spring Update

Overdue Finished Objects

Hello, friends! How about we have a roundup of projects I finished months ago and are no longer seasonal? YEAH! I will warn you in advance that I'm experimenting with where I take my photos, since I don't always want to put on a fashion show for my neighbors in my backyard. Right now that… Continue reading Overdue Finished Objects

A New Season

Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well! I haven't posted in awhile. Multiple reasons - work was simultaneously making me stressed and sad while also being very slow, I was working on a frustrating C2C crochet project that I kept having to frog, and just general fatigue. Last week was my anniversary… Continue reading A New Season

A Little Bit of Sunshine

Happy weekend, friends! Wednesday was a wonderful day. I know there won't be overnight changes now that Biden is in office, but I've been feeling optimism about the pandemic (and life in general) for the first time in a very long time. If the pandemic is marathon, we're at mile 20. I know I'm relatively… Continue reading A Little Bit of Sunshine

Happy 2021

Happy New Year all! I hope you had a cozy winter break. Ours was good. I definitely felt sad at points - we ended up not going on our camping trip (which was the right decision) and we missed our families. I think the night before my brother's birthday made me the saddest, since I… Continue reading Happy 2021
