The past several weekends, I've woken up feeling sad. Not wanting to be idle, I decided to find an activity that I could lose myself in. Something meditative and soothing, but an activity that I could finish faster for instant gratification. Enter sewing. I've documented my sewing attempts on and off the past several years… Continue reading FO – Yoga Pants
Happy Sunday, friends! I'm relaxing after a busy week at work (which extended a bit into Saturday, as well). Yesterday we took the pup on another hiking trip. It was a new park and we basically had it all to ourselves. It was beautiful! The weather was sunny and in the 80s, and I was… Continue reading Fulfillment with the Familiar
Hello friends! I hope all is well. I didn't mean to keep away from this blog for so long (and I had "Write cardigan blog" on my to-do list for about three weeks now!) But you know how it goes. Keeping busy over here. Work is making me a sad little stress ball at the… Continue reading Finished Object – New Beginnings Cardigan
Good morning friends! I hope you are well. I am trying to get a quick post out of the way before I head to work. I still need to stretch - I've been trying this new gym with a friend, and I LOVE it. It's been so much fun - a lot of HIIT workouts. … Continue reading Sleeve Island
Hello friends! I hope you had a great weekend. Why am I still awake at nearly 11 o'clock at night, you ask? This is what happens when you have a chai tea latte at 4 pm. For some reason, I didn't think it was caffeinated. SPOILER ALERT - it's caffeinated and I'm wide awake. UNTZ… Continue reading Blooming
Happy Saturday friends! I'm currently drinking coffee while my lazy dog sleeps next to me. Hope you all are doing well! We found out yesterday that Husband's car is probably going to be a total loss. It's totally fine, but just in terms of timing, I thought of this gif and started laughing: https://media.giphy.com/media/1dIoHBbyFpWzK0Div8/source.gif Let's… Continue reading Summer Makes Wish List
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?
Hello friends! Nope, it's not already June. Nope, nope, nope. I hope you had a good weekend! I kept busy. Had to do some work (boo), got my chores done, and honestly not much crafting. I miscounted my stitches on my hat, so the decrease is all off. I'm almost in the "BURN IT NOW"… Continue reading Finished Object – Lil Denim Cardi
Hello friends! It's time for another, "I should be getting ready for work but decided to update my blog instead" post. Husband and I just came back from Indianapolis yesterday (thankfully smooth flights both ways and no travel issues that had plagued our last trip out there). The inspection went as well as it could… Continue reading Back from Indianapolis
We've got a finished cardi! With sleeves! The pattern was actually really easy to follow, and there is a great tutorial video to walk you through the steps (even though my brain took awhile to decipher the difference between front and back post crochet). Now I just need to wash and block it. The sleeves… Continue reading Ta Da!
