Looking at this week's mosaic, it kind of looks like I'm in a photographic rut of holding the camera over my head and snapping an image of my folded legs...

I crocheted this shawl a lot more quickly than I thought possible, and I wore it happily on Sunday. If it ever dips below 90 degrees, I may even wear it again.

I am not having a whole lot of luck in the selfish knitting department. Allow me to present my latest example.

It seems a theme has emerged this week: copious amounts of knitting, punctuated with the occasional family gathering. It was a good week.

Sunday afternoon, I grabbed my camera and headed for the farm in search of colorful flowers to photograph and then to bring home.

I'm not a hugely social person, but I really love the weeks that are as filled with family visits and parties as this one has been.

Two days down the shore and a crochet project finished in 4 days flat (I'm still surprised by that). It was a nice week.

What would you do with this vintage crochet blanket? Would you repair the damage? Or repurpose it in a creative way?

Polka Dot Cottage
Introduction
I raise boys, take pictures, knit sweaters, keep a less-than-perfect house, blog memories, sew skirts, play with clay, daydream about beach weekends, avoid home improvement projects, crochet blankets, and spend slightly more time looking at screens than I probably should.

Thinking of adding me? In case we don't know each other personally, here are some circles that would be a good fit for me:
  • crafty
  • polymer clay
  • sewing
  • loom knitting, knitting, crochet
  • photography
  • slice-of-life blogger
Bragging rights
I have a camera and a basement full of craft supplies, and I'm not afraid to use them.
Education
  • Drew University
    Computer Science, 1989 - 1993
