How is it May already? With the semester coming to a close and the normal chaos of life and work I feel like April has zoomed right on by me. Add in travel for my husband, double dog duty by myself and getting bit by the tiniest of ticks the other day…

Stitching Status: Progress & Pups #yardsofhappiness #dogwearingabackpack

I’m making progress on my latest striped summer tee but for the last two nights this is how I’ve had to knit. With Jellybean in my lap staring back at me with puppy dogs eyes. I blame her shots from over the weekend for her wanting more love than what she…
