… you’re always there waiting for me. It doesn’t matter how far along I get on a project or how much I can taste the end, you will always be there waiting patiently.
I was about 50% into a hat that I’m working on for Oliver and while it should be a very simple, straightforward [...]
I’ve been plugging away at old projects and adding in some new ones. These past few weeks we’ve been working on stepping stones for lots of family members – including one for our very own family. Let me tell you. It is hard work getting 2 children to put their little piggies in veg. oil [...]
Marketing aimed at children really bothers me, even more so now that I have children of my own. I’ll let you do your own research with the insane amounts of advertising that kids are exposed to by the age of four, but you can trust that I am doing my best to curb that number [...]
I finally put Oliver down long enough to give him time to roll over. He’s always been quite mobile, for not actually rolling or crawling, when I set him down. This kid loves to kick his legs and especially loves to wind up his right leg by kicking it out and bringing it back in [...]

I ordered my fabrics for the [...]
Sorry! I’m bumping this back up to the top so that I can stay focused. I’ve been getting bouts of ‘omg, what am I supposed to be working on’ lately, so I need this to keep myself in check. (I used to have a nifty page for this kinda stuff, but I haven’t figured it [...]
Whew! We had quite the busy day today. I don’t think I have the energy left to say too much in words, but here’s the jest of it in a pictoral:
