We’re firmly into summer here which means a lot of staying indoors except in the early morning or evening. It’s just too hot. Yesterday afternoon the temperature was 98 with a heat index of 108. It was like a sauna. The little girls have a wading pool in the back yard but they’re only permitted … Continue reading Living life
Lately it's been busy and hot. Pretty much the usual. Cloud photography happens more days than not, and sometimes we get a bit of rain. We're in one of the few small parts of Texas that is not in a drought. I've made a few miniature sweaters. The first two went to Emily, the owner … Continue reading Dormition, Roses, Wool, Miniatures, and Clouds
[regular blog post at the bottom below the Yarn Along post] So these are some of my recent projects. All of these went into the shop (except that last in-progress photo) but only the miniatures are left. I do like making things people enjoy!

I finished the main part of the bonnet just before we got to church for Vespers. The horse and sheep were … Continue reading Saturday
Today was a bit busy. We hit the gym this morning and then got groceries. I went out again right afterward to Hobby Lobby to get white tapers and ribbon for the baptismal candles. I also started hemming Duchess's skirt (it's a beautiful cream wool gabardine in a 1930's pattern that she found at an … Continue reading Holy Tuesday
I feel a bit bad about co-opting the regular post yesterday for a Yarn Along post (especially since it linked to the shop), so here's a more original one.
