And now for something completely different
Look! Cats! My cats love pineapple!  I have no idea if other cats react to pineapple this way, or if mine are just strange.  I'd love to hear of anyone else's experiences with cats and pineapples. We could lead them around the whole house with a pineapple.

Finished project: Rayon Challis sundress
This was my first model garment project for Fabricland!  I'm so excited about it.  I used McCall's 7116 , view D which had a lot of details I really like in a summer dress.  Cross over bodice means easy FBA, bias skirt drapes over my lower body nicely, and ...

Hello 2016
Ah, a new year.  The kids are back to school, the house is cleaned up after Christmas, I've started on the laundry I didn't do all weekend, and the cats and I are enjoying a coffee break. Babe and Ebby enjoy life as lap cats. My unexpected blog break over D...

Finished Project: Hinagiku Hat
I knit a toque for myself!  Hoorah!  I usually hate wearing toques because they aren't compatible with my ponytail, but I realised that a slouchy toque would fix that.  Such a simple solution, I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before.   I used the Hin...
