  • Christmas Spoilings Posted on January 29, 2013

    I’m a bit behind on things that happened in late 2012 after being sick and then going on vacation, but here we are.  I got some incredibly lovely things for Christmas and I just have to share them with you peeps. Christmas gift-giving this year was kept to a minimum.  I primarily purchased gifts for… Read More »

  • Threads Giveaway Winner Posted on January 28, 2013

    First of all, thank you guys so much for entering my bloggiversary giveaway.  It was really amazing to see how many of you have been following me for so long.  It was also funny to read that the vast majority didn’t know how you happened upon my blog, zilredloh.  heh  I can’t say it’s terribly… Read More »

  • Don’t Forget… Posted on January 25, 2013

    Hey guys!  If you may have missed my post from Monday, I’m giving away a year’s subscription for Treads Magazine for my 2-year bloggiversary. Random FYI:  I am in no way affiliated or sponsored by threads, I just think its a great sewing magazine for learning new tips, tricks, and techniques. To participate in the… Read More »

  • Cleaning the Slate Posted on January 22, 2013

    In light of my 2012 recap post, I decided to step back and take inventory of all of the projects that I started in 2012 or *shudder* earlier. It was fun to go through all of the garments I made last year but it was not so much fun to realize that I could have… Read More »

  • Happy Bloggiversary to Meeeee Posted on January 21, 2013

    It seems that several folks on the interwebs have their bloggiversaries in January (which isn’t surprising in the least). But it’s strange to think that I’ve been blogging for 2 years now!  I was very hesitant to start one up in the first place, but my dear husband Felix was the greatest motivator to get… Read More »

  • Knitting Patterns on Ravelry Posted on January 18, 2013

    I know a few of you (in the past) had asked me if I had the freebie knitting/crochet patterns up on Ravelry… and I hadn’t.  I could never figure out how to add patterns that were published by another company, like Stitchcraft Magazine. So I am now thrilled to announce that I’ve finally figured it… Read More »

  • Caribbean Cruise: Part 3 Posted on January 17, 2013

    Okay…. I swear this is the last post about my cruise since I fear I’m bordering on making you all jealous.  Heck, I’m even jealous of me since I wish I were back there right now sitting in the warm sun.  heh Day 5 on the cruise was another big day, this time we made… Read More »

  • Caribean Cruise: Part 2 Posted on January 16, 2013

    I’m back once again today with more cruise photos for you all. On day 4 we landed in Curaçao (home of the blue liqueur) but instead of arriving at 10am as originally planned, the weather kept us from port until 4pm.  At that point all of the excursions we had booked were canceled due to the… Read More »

  • Top 5 of 2012 Posted on January 15, 2013

    I’ve loved reading everyone’s 2012 recap posts and thought it is high time I do my own before it gets any later in January. What’s funny is that when I remember seeing these recap posts popping in December I was thinking “Wow, everyone is really early this year!”  When in fact I just lost track… Read More »
