  • A Lovely Granny Sweater

    Today’s pattern freebie comes from the February 1943 edition of Stitchcraft.  I think it’s quite funny that it was designed for “Granny” but I think it’s so pretty so I titled it the Lovely Granny Sweater.  Apparently I love me some granny-wear.  :) Click on the following link to download the free pdf pattern: Such… Read More »

    Glasses: An Update Posted on December 11, 2012

    I bet you were all starting to wonder when I’d be showing off my new glasses that you graciously voted on back in September. Well…. I have to admit that life seemed to have got in the way of purchasing new frames.  About 3 days after I had posted up the voting for my glasses… Read More »

    A Fresh Hair Cut Posted on December 6, 2012

    Just another mini post for today…. I got my hair cut last night! Prior to my wedding 3 years ago I’ve always had short-short-short hair.  So for some reason I decided I wanted long hair and grew it out for the wedding and have been getting it longer and longer ever since. For some reason… Read More »

    Who’s Baxter kidding…. Posted on December 6, 2012

    She can’t cut fabric this way! Sorry this is a bit dark and that Mr. Quincy is blurry.  I nabbed this photo while I was on the couch in lower lighting. Ahhh!  I’m turning into one of those people who takes photos of their “kids” doing bad things when they should be reprimanded instead.  Baxter… Read More »

I consider myself super-duper lucky to have a paid… Read More »
