Today is my second wedding anniversary. Last year we celebrated our anniversary in Seattle. This year we'd been planning on another anniversary trip, but...well, you know how that story ends. This is a Studio MME kit (she's since rebranded as Poplush Embroidery and has retired her skylines/landscapes kits.) I purchased this kit from the Elliot… Continue reading Going Inward
Hi friends! Figured I would give "WIP Wednesday" a try. I have been very guilty of posting WIPs here and then never finishing them, buuuut I think I will finish this one by next week! (Is that overly ambitious?) This is the Earl Grey Wrap from Two of Wands. I bought this kit back in… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
Psst. Hey you. Yeah, you. I'm talking to you. The word on the street* is you were...looking for the good stuff. I've got the good stuff. HAH. Never in my life did I think it would be necessary to share my toilet paper buying habits to the world, but HERE WE GO. We have… Continue reading FO -Slouchy Seed Stitch Basket
Happy Sunday friends! It's the Super Bowl today and I didn't watch it because I didn't even know who was playing until today ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Today was pretty restful. We just got back from a super quick trip to Texas, and I'm fighting a little cold. I canceled my drum lessons and just lounged all the… Continue reading The Cowl Thingy
Hello friends! Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend so far. My weekend is better today - it's sunny and beautiful outside, and I was able to accomplish a fair number of items on my to-do list. Yesterday I didn't do much of anything. Husband says I have a hard time just… Continue reading I Need to Go Back to Work
Thank you all for your comments on my last post! I am feeling a lot better and less sad. Just the usual tired. Work is getting crazy again, and we're trying to fit in all the Austin-y things we can before we leave. It's hard to believe that we have two weeks left here. My… Continue reading HOW IS IT JULY?
Good morning friends. I woke up at 3:30 and was unable to fall back asleep, so today's post is brought to you by caffeine and fatigue. I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a good one. Husband played another show Friday night at a neat venue with some great bands. Saturday we… Continue reading A Sleep-Deprived Update
Hello friends! Hope you are having a good week. This week was a little crazy since I had a deadline stacked on top of a client meeting that I needed to prep for. The client meeting is done and while my work load is still a little heavy, I feel like I can breathe a… Continue reading Playing with Color
Hello friends! I hope you had a good weekend. We were in our hometown on Friday for some family stuff, then came back to Austin Saturday. Yesterday I took some time to work on my tunic before finishing my chores and packing, and it felt good to take some time for myself. Still trying to… Continue reading Happy Monday?
Good morning friends! I'm not going to lie, my motivation is very low this morning. I just had the energy for a 10-minute yoga video, and ONLY because my old lady back starts hurting during the day if I don't do any kind of stretching or physical activity in the morning. I didn't stay at… Continue reading Finished Object – Openwork Shawl
