 Spinning wool as soft and as white as Santa's beard.  Grandchildren with chubby cheeks to kiss.  Flowers from my husband celebrating the day we met.  Rows of owls on the brim of a hat, waiting for little button eyes.  Summer spinning, finally plied and ske...

Make your own Hydrangea and Herb Wreath

Home + Body = Homebody A day doesn't go by that I don't pick up my knitting needles and work on a project. It's comforting and relaxing if it's simple stockinette or garter stitch. Lace knitting - not so much. Love the look but sometimes it's more of a chal...

My OBGYN recently gave me an authorization slip for my annual mammogram. I told her that this year I was thinking about skipping it. I've been having one, almost without fail, for over 20 years. I've had false positives, been sent to the surgeon for evaluat...
