I've falling in love with wall hangings. I blame Instagram and the endless inspiration is provides. It all began with a very popular account, Lindsey of The Blushing Script. I found her due to my current fascination with calligraphy and hand lettering. I was immediately drawn in with her calligraphy videos and her ease at mastering that … Continue reading Handknit Wall Hangings
This Christmas my husband gifted me with a new sewing machine. Well, to be true, he told me he wanted to gift me one and promptly asked me to pick it out since he felt it was too personal a choice to do for me. How true he was! There are SO many machines out … Continue reading I heart Sewing!
It's a truth telling session, ya'll. I am often cheerful and hopeful and Pollyanna about my sons situation but to be true it is so fucking hard sometimes. The appointments and paperwork piles up and all of a sudden I'm drowning and getting a life-saver seems to come through more endless amounts of more paperwork … Continue reading On dealing…

Dudes, sleeves … Continue reading WIP: Cinnamon Girl

Since I haven't been able to do much it's been a wonderful way for me to exercise my brain in a non-mom way! I bought my first nail wrap in a fundraiser for … Continue reading Presenting Jams for James!
I miss you. I miss all of you. I miss blogging about my life and interests but feel so disingenuous if it's not about knitting. Lately, my knitting has been sitting dormant on my night stand, collecting copious amounts of dust. I try to take it out and work on it but ultimately I can't … Continue reading Evolving
Oh the ever inevitable blog hiatus. Friends and knitters, life throws us curve balls, hail storms and road blocks. In this year of 2014 I think I got thrown all three (and MORE). It all started in January when my son experienced a very long hospital stay. Things had been fishy from the time he was … Continue reading Hello. Is it me you’re looking for?
