I'm not a hugely social person, but I really love the Summer weeks that are filled with family visits and parties:

Got a bounty of summer berries? Make muffins! http://buff.ly/1TVFzCL #recipe
Definitely had a more "balanced" day today than I have been having. A little bit of computer biz work in the morning, a little bit of housework that wasn't as painful as I'd been thinking it would ...

Sweet Pea show and tell: http://buff.ly/1PAzZzM #crochet
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 don't think granny squares generally appeal to men, do they? And yet I forged ahead in 2011, a gift for my brother:
Take a wild guess how many useful options come up when you Google "granny square projects for men."  I'll give you a hint:  It's roughly zero.  And not really a surprise. Still, I thought my brothe...

That time we dropped everything and headed to the zoo to cure a case of the Bicker Brothers. http://buff.ly/1J7Iq0Z #augustmemories
Yesterday was the last day of my vacation. The plan today was to spend most of my waking hours wading through email and processing orders, but when I woke up this morning to the sounds of the Bicke...

That atypical August that was so cool and breezy it had me thinking of September and making a mix to match the mood:
A new playlist for you to listen to: It's that feeling of impending autumn. Mellow and contemplative. A little windy. Cloudy. And yet not quite the end of summer.

We were only at the beach for 2 days, but it still feels like it dominated our week. In a good way.
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.

The continuing adventures of an artsy-craftsy geek-girl
Introduction
Hello, I'm Lisa Clarke, and *Polka Dot Cottage* is my blog and associated shops. I have worked in polymer clay since 1996, but in 2007 began dabbling in fiber arts. These days, my blog is filled with sewing, knitting, crochet, and photography right along with the polymer I am known for. Not just a "crafty blog," Polka Dot Cottage contains a healthy dose of slice-of-life stuff, too, including anecdotes about the home I share with my sci-fi magazine editor husband, Neil and our two imaginative boys who call themselves Boring Office Guy and Flufy. 

Thinking of following Polka Dot Cottage? Here are some circles that would be a good fit:
  • crafty
  • polymer clay
  • sewing
  • loom knitting, knitting, crochet
  • photography
  • slice-of-life blogger
