Blue Pillow Seat (3)

I have worked what yarn I had left into the side piece off the pillow, but I will need one more skein to get the height I want. As the stuffing I plan to use can be pulled out through the crochet stitches, I am going to make an inner lining “sack” to hold it…

Driving in the Hell Storm

After my work shift, I headed out to visit family for the Fourth of July weekend.  It is a 225 mile trip one-way.  About 60 miles in, I saw a doe close to the side of the road eating grass and, after watching it carefully while driving by, laughed and said that was the exciting…

Her Mother’s Afghan (final)

After many months, the afghan for Rysa’s mother is finally complete!  It weighs 9.8lbs, measures 101″ x 85.5″, and took more skeins than I cared to count.

Absent Because…

Sorry I’ve been so long writing, but we had a bit of a change in our lives recently.  Two weeks ago, we picked up two precious little ferret babies! We both chose one from the lot that had the personalities we wanted.  Rys wanted a more playful one and I wanted a quieter one.  We…
