One Year Later

July 29th, 2018 · No Comments

So much for my attempt to make it more than once yearly seeing as my last post was one year ago today. Oh well.
 
 Life has been extremely busy. I still love my job though it keeps me hopping through long days, long commutes and not enough time to get everything I need to get it all done. The kids are seriously getting older. They are now both taller than me, though that wasn’t much of a high bar. Kat has me by 2″ while Alex is now 8+ taller. I swear he grows each week while I’m in Maryland.
 
 In June I traded the Harley in on a new motorcycle. Meet Angus:
 
 

 I love Angus. He is a 2018 Indian Scout Sixty. This bike is a little heavier than the Harley, but with a lower center of gravity which makes it so much easier to ride. Angus has gotten a few extra chrome add ons over the last month.
 
 Highway bars or as I call them rollbars that keep me from getting crushed when I inevitably drop the thing:
 

 Luggage rack as I haven’t decided whether I want saddle bags or not:
 

 I do still craft and missed posting this in November. I picked up a brand new Norm Hall Mariah in Flame Cherry after Norm reached out and asked if I wanted one as I had hit the top of his wait list. Ha ha. Silly Question!
 

 Awesome wheel! Can’t wait to see how that cherry deepens with age!
 
 Periodic knitting still happens though mostly socks. Think I managed to finish all of two pair last year. I did start a shawl a few weeks ago though I don’t remember the pattern name offhand nor what the yarn is 🙂
 
 

 And because I had nothing else to do I got the quilting bug over the last week and dug out this much stalled project. So old that I can’t remember when I even started it!
 
 

 And now I have a partner in quilting! Kat is making her first.
 

 Now that I have coffee on board and before too many more folk wake up and hit the streets, I’m going to go for a ride on Angus. Maybe more sooner than normal as the kids and I are off to Italy for a week on Thursday! Venice has always been on my bucket list and I’ll be there in a week!
 
 
 – Craft on!

Bee Kind

June 14th, 2013 · 1 Comment

I’m late to this party, but I’m having a great time.  After seeing lots of people do the Beekeeper’s Quilt, I decided to join along. I have a lot of leftover sock yarn considering I can make a pair for myself out of a single skein of Lorna’s.  The full sized skeins of hand paints these days gives me more than enough yarn for a pair for me, a pair for one of the kids and then leftover.   I got off to a slow start, but am starting to book on these:

I have a ways to go before there are enough for a blanket, but its moving along.

Craft on!
