That’s about all I have to show for the past week and a half. Whee! I’ve got two critters to finish up (a custom calico and an orange Cat) and then I can start on my patterns for this year! … Continue reading ?
Pitcher Plants Visiting the Splinter Hill Bog Preserve this morning.
Ellie has had an unhappy tummy for the past couple days. She has been eating a lot of crackers. A lot of crackers. Everything is covered in cracker crumbs. And every one.
Betty loves carrots.
Pulling the carrots and getting ready for the tomatoes. And the peppers. And the corn. And the squash. And the catnip.

Daisy Dog Now I’m working on a Hippo. A I can’t decide if she is a Plum Hippo or a Persimmon Hippo (it’s a new shade). Probably Persimmon. It’s more fun to say.
Michael needs a new pair of glasses. A box of five sample frames from Warby Parker arrived in the mail yesterday. These are Ellie’s favorites. They match her Build-a-Bear glasses Oh, the beard. He couldn’t decide if he was doing … Continue reading ?

Sweet Nothings seem to be arriving all over the country! Since my package is on the way to another country, I’ll show you what I got instead of what I sent to save the surprise for Barbara. My treats from … Continue reading ?
Time to mail those Sweet Nothings, folks! Sometime next week, I’ll do a tiny round-up post and get everyone to comment about their favorite notion, but for now I don’t want to spoil any surprises! If you’re lucky I’ll add … Continue reading ?
Sweet Nothing Partners are assigned! With two hours of weekend left! That’s the most timely thing I’ve done in a while. My inability to get things done in a timely fashion is directly proportional to the number of obstacles I … Continue reading ?
