Nesting Season

I woke up on Saturday feeling melancholy.  There were a dozen things contributing to my mood, but if you asked me to place my finger on just one cause, I would say - results are imminent.  And each time, I forget how poorly I did on the exam and get a glimmer of hope that… Continue reading Nesting Season

Neglected Projects – Lion Brand’s Simple Shrug

Today's blog post is admittedly a cheater post.  I figured there was no point in posting another picture of the same six squares of the Speckled Square Blanket I'm working on; progress has been very slow.  There's of course my looming exam (136.5 hours in).  We were also working on our wedding video this week,… Continue reading Neglected Projects – Lion Brand’s Simple Shrug
