I had two finishes for Q2, but you’ll have to wait for TGIFF next week (July 24) to see the bigger one. I’ll give you a hint – it’s a quilt 🙂 My other finish was this Side Hustle laptop bag from the Bag of the Month Club. I did previously share this on Instagram. […]

I should put away the rest of the plant pots. I should think about cutting the grass. I should pick some oregano to dehydrate. But right now I’ll finish my coffee, knit a few more rows, and continue to make a list of “I should’s” . The pattern is Gothix, from Knitty.com Joining up with […]

Pandemic. Our routine is broken. And just when we find a new fragile path forward the rains sweep us away. My work laptop is set up on top of the Singer 301, I quietly hand stitch during online meetings — so many meetings. I am grateful to be working full time but stressed over doing […]

Like thousands of you, this week I made masks and scrubs bags. My local hospital, Northumberland Hills Hospital, partnered with my employer to make reusable masks for outpatients and others who require some protection but aren’t ill with Covid-19.

With millions of people around the world hunkered down in social distancing, I expect this will be a fantastic quarter for finishes in the Finish-a-Long. My week at work was crazy busy getting people started on assignments from their homes and trying to come up with some kind of schedule for myself. In between all […]

I started pepper seeds today March 8, with the plan to add tomatoes next weekend.

This is the fourth time I have subscribed to the Bag of the Month Club. It’s a really good deal to get some sweet purse and tote bag patterns. I really love my current purse — the Ring Sling by Mrs. H. February’s pattern was the Layla Essentials Purse by Andrie Designs, a small wallet/purse. […]

I have been sewing a lot, but I feel I need to knuckle down on some UFO’s, so I’m going to try joining up with One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts. My sister and her husband are coming up on their 25th wedding anniversary so I need to finish up the quilt I have […]
