Hello long lost Blogland!

Hello friends, It has been quite some time since I have posted. I have my blog on my bookmarks, so I have looked at the bookmark many times over these past months, sometimes longingly, sometimes with twinges of guilt for not posting in so long. 2012 was, in a word, CRAZY. Here it was in … Continue reading

Checking in…

Hello blog friends! I apologize that I have been out of the blog loop here lately, but going through major life change is my excuse! We did successfully move to Mississippi, although we turned right back around yesterday after church and came to Houston, TX to visit Kevin’s family for a week. While I am … Continue reading

New Pattern Purchase

I have so much to do, so naturally, I’m blogging.🙂 But I just HAD to show you all the pattern I just purchased. This is a breakthrough for me, because it is my first garment pattern. But it is just so beautiful that it inspired me to give clothing a try (eventually – not sure … Continue reading

Bloglovin’

For my friends and family who have asked me what the difference is between crochet and knitting, take note that this was all knitted. See … Continue reading

Blanket progress…

Blanket progress…

So the color I deleted is the darkest purple — the second to last color. I deleted it because it was so much darker than any of the other colors, including the brown, and I just thought it looked weird.  Would you like to see my progress? I love the way it’s turning out. I … Continue reading

Can you guess?

In case you forgot (which is likely), here is the color order I chose for my blanket. I deleted one color. Which do you think it is??? I have finished one full color round. Whooooooooooooot! Pictures to come.

Playing Hooky in Fort Worth

Playing Hooky in Fort Worth

This past week has been really busy and tiring, so I was pleased when I got a text on Friday from DH that said, “Will you go on a date with me tomorrow?” I emphatically answered “Yes!”, and so yesterday we went to the Fort Worth Stockyards. Fort Worth’s nickname is “Cowtown”, because back in … Continue reading
