Looking Forward to 2017
Stop reading now if you don't want to read some politics and philosophizing. 2016...where to start?  It's been kind of a soggy year.  Right now I have fuzzy brain due to some cold medicine, but looking back...soggy is the best adjective I can come up with t...

Fall Knitting
I don't have much time for sewing, but I do have the odd 20 minutes free here and there, and that's perfect for knitting something not-too-complicated.  I'm in the middle of several lace projects, but that doesn't match the "not-too-complicated" requirement...

Progress Report: The First Two Weeks of Me-Made-May 2016
It's only been two weeks and there have already been several outfit repeats!  I have resorted to wearing my me-made necklaces four times in order to have a me-made for the day.  And one weekend I spent entirely in pyjamas, but me-made ones! So what have I l...

Yay or Nay for Me-Made-May
I've done an inventory of my surviving me-made apparel and the result is rather slim: five tops, one dress, three sweaters, and three skirts.  Plus two necklaces if I include jewelry, and three knit hats!  Oh yes, and one scarf and one pair of pyjamas.  So ...

Jewelry Making + a Sneak Peek
I've been refreshing my jewelry-making skills.  Here's my most recent creation (last night, ha!) all curled up resting while the glue is drying.  Speaking of, the close-up helps me see a glob there to scrape off! I was inspired by a tutorial I spotted on Pi...
