Open Call

I’m auditioning yarn for a new project. I know I haven’t finished the Mermaid pattern yet. Ideas are not concerned with the status of other ideas.

Weekly Wrap-Up: Lesson 19

At the beginning of the school year, I thought we might want to use a white board but I wasn’t really sure how much we’d use it. So I ordered a $30 whiteboard from Amazon and used big clamps to attach it to Ellie’s easel. That worked great until she grew. The past few weeks, […]

Cat Project

Ellie and I are trying a little embroidery. First we practiced basic stitches. Then the

Half Way and Still Happy

We’re half-way through Grade 2. I’m a little sad because it’s just been so very very spectacular. I am grateful every day that Oak Meadow is an all-in-one curriculum with plenty of space to meet students at their ability level. I don’t have to spend all my time (and money) hand picking individual curriculum for […]

New Year

Y’all have a good Christmas? Ours isn’t quite over yet – part of it got rained out and is rescheduled to the coming weekend. Ellie finished Gran’s scarf in time. She got a GIANT BARBIE HOUSE from Santa. Betty also likes it – she can walk right through the bottom floor like it’s a cat […]

If you were to live in a house with seven fireplaces and thus seven mantles, could you also have seven stockings?

People Tank is Full

Y’all. Our social calendar generally has one or two events each week. If anyone feels that is sparse, this week should make you feel better about our “sociability”: three separate friend visits (one is happening right now), a field trip with our homeschool group, Christmas Parade! (Girl Scouts), homeschool play group, and a birthday party. […]

Weekly Wrap Up: Catching Up to Lesson 14

2 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

We’d fallen into a nice comfortable pattern during our school weeks. Then came Thanksgiving. I am coming around to the opinion that there shouldn’t be school between Thanksgiving and New Year’s – there’s just way too much other stuff happening. I put together a school schedule for the week ahead on Sunday afternoon when I […]

Merry Christmas! Although acorns are really better for fall. Unless you like rustic – oohooh or use shiny gold yarn! Or make them as cat toys – just add a little catnip to the stuffing. Or embroider little stuff on the nut part. Or make them really tiny (and variegated) with sock yarn. Or make […]

Unexpected Homeschool Drawback #1: It’s hard to hide the presents.


2 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

School is great. I have lots of pattern ideas. (including your Christmas present) I have lots of books that are read and unread. There are lots of things we do. Why don’t I write about any of it? It’s probably because I can’t think with all the talking in here. Or maybe it’s because the […]

Mini Maker Faire, November 6-8

3 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

All the Barnes & Noble stores in the US (ALL of them) host a Mini Maker Faire this weekend! I’m sure you’ve heard of Make the magazine (and it’s short-lived sibling Craft). There are local Maker groups around the country that hang out, tinker, play with 3D printers, and often provide workshops for kids and […]

Weekly Wrap-Up: Lesson 10

This was one of the strongest weeks so far (in my opinion) for a couple of reasons. Reason 1: COMPASS. Reason 2: Math Wheel. Math wheels are a very Waldorf method for reinforcing the patterns in the multiplication tables (taught along with skip counting – “counting by 3s” etc.) among other things. It’s just neat. […]

Weekly Wrap-Up: Lesson 9

4 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

I started the Mermaid tail for the F pattern! I’ve made some yarn decisions for the rest of her (Woo!). I worked quite a bit in the yard this week too. The raised beds were planted last week. This week I started the long, arduous process of cleaning out the long, long, long neglected flower […]
