Translating a Crochet Pattern when you're not a translator
Hello Kitty by 3dera Isn't she adorable? I love Hello Kitty and so do many fans throughout the world. I think there's a small army of folks putting out amigurumi, sweaters, granny squares and other such things into the world. Unfortunately, sometimes they'r...

Memorial to Osgood (update on the Osgood scarf)
I feel like I haven't shared an update on Osgood's scarf in awhile. She's coming along nicely. I've been weaving in the ends as I go so I love that its going to be finished when its finished. According to my calculations I'm just under 70% complete. I looke...

52in52: Mary "Polly" Ferguson Graves, b. 1798-1799 Vermont, m. Daniel Graves, d. ???
I was chatting on Facebook with a distant cousin the other day, and I realized I had never fully shared the story of Mary "Polly" Ferguson on this blog or anywhere else. Week 3's theme for 52 ancestors in 52 weeks was "Tough Woman" and I think Polly is the ...

Christmas Desserts for Italians (with gluten free options)
    My family is not one that's big on desserts. For whatever reason, we never extended the Christmas traditions beyond pies, and I think birthday cake was as fancy as it got when I was younger. If you were really good, you got the German chocolate cake w...

Their service department was great - I had to get some suspect damage on my brakes looked at. Not only did they check it out for me and make sure everything was okay, they did a nice inspection and helped me clear up a few other issues too. Really appreciate this kindness while I'm away from home. Thank you so much!

The Nook is a great location for knitting, crocheting, or eating! Their ice cream, popcorn, and candy is top notch. The yarn store section sells unique products that are not available elsewhere and all have very reasonable price tags. I would urge you to give this place a shot!

I am part of a company that does a business convention at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers. I (personally)* am very happy with the services of FedEx Office inside the hotel. This year, the specialist assigned to us was wonderful - when their folder machine was unavailable they shipped my job to another store to make sure it got done, and they delivered early. For a small version of FedEx Office, they do an excellent job with the resources they have. Thank you for your hard work! *Please note that this does not constitute the views of the company I work for, only my own personal opinion of the services of FedEx Office at 301 E. North Water Street.
