When Your Stash Dash Strategy Lands You in Sleeve Purgatory
Stash Dash is officially over on August 14 -- which is a little less than 3 weeks away.  I currently have 2256 yards (that's 2063 m), so I'm about a 1000 meters shy of a 3K. I realized this earlier this week, and (you will all be so proud of me) instead of ...

+Jessica Matz I think deciding that R's sweater is the key to my Stash Dash victory is the only reason I've got any traction with it.  I am very goal oriented... sometimes.  Except when I'm not.

One Bite at a Time
I'm still doing that scattershot thing I was doing a few weeks ago, where I am working on a bajillion things at once.  If by "a bajillion" you mean "like three or four."  And I do.  It seems to be working for me though, since all three projects that I was w...

At Least There Are No Boots in My Bathtub
We're deep in the throes of another remodeling project, friends.  Remember back in January when Carl and I installed hardwood floor in our bedroom ?   Well we're at it again, but this time in the living room, hall, and (let us not forget) the coat closet an...

I pretty much always have to sew the sides of my heels shut. It would probably help if I would just ask for help when I get to heels, but I'm too impatient.
