Cozy Corner
I love to spin with my drop spindle in the evening. It keeps my hands busy. I drink a nice cup of herbal tea or, healthier yet, a big glass of water. I'm not riveted to most of what's on the tube (with the exception of Downton Abbey or Doc Martin). Spinning...

I Shall Wear Purple or Red
Jenny Joseph's famous poem called "Warning - When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple"... I'm sure you've heard it or heard of it. If we're fortunate to attain an age that allows us to draw social security (or qualify for the senior discount at our favori...

This is the calm before the crazy. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. The baking is finished, the shopping is done, the presents are wrapped. Six grandkids will be under the tree tomorrow and I'll be ready for them. I didn't decorate...

Mittens for 3 Little Kittens
I was reading in bed the other night, occasionally looking up to chat with  bug the devil out of my husband who was actually trying to read his book. I was explaining that I was knitting mittens for the first time and that I was making a pair for each of th...

Fiber Festival Finds
Daughter and I ventured north to Massachusetts last weekend, following fiber fumes. First to WEBS , America's Yarn Store. We circled the yarn like hunters after big game. We were both satisfied with our purchases, only to discover that the commonwealth does...

The Secret Garden
 I picked up a copy of The Secret Garden for a dollar when my local library was having a book sale last summer. Somehow I'd missed reading it as a child. One at a time, I'm trying to catch up on some of the classics I missed. Last time, it was Anna Karenina...

Clutter makes me Crazy!
There are plenty of posts on YouTube that explain the secret to an organized home. Marie Condo explains the secrets in her book " The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up ", which I admit I have not read. I think I pretty much get the gist of her program. Howe...

Ancestral Pantry Dinner
New Year's Day dinner is not the big deal it was when I was a kid. Families would get together for another big holiday meal. Maybe I was unaware, but I don't remember people bringing food to our house unless it was for a traditional "potluck". New Year's Da...

Stitching and Sneezing
I finished my "Pebble Beach Shawl" by designer Helen Stewart after we came home from our trip. It's the medium size in Malabrigo "Indecita". I tried photographing it outside but the colors only came true in low lighting inside the house. I love the way Hele...

I wanted to stay longer. It did't matter that the ferns had turned a golden brown. Everywhere I looked was natural beauty. Mushrooms, streams troubled by landing insects into waves of glassy water. White birch, goldenrod, wil...

A pretty-crafty lady, wife, mom and gram and dog-mom
Introduction
I'm never bored. If I'm not knitting or spinning, I'm gardening or reading. There's so much to learn and never enough time. 
Bragging rights
It makes me happy that people I meet are surprised to know I've had Multiple Sclerosis for 30 years.
