Ahhh, February is here! February gets no love from me so I am glad we've finally made it so that it can hurry up and go away. You feel me? I live near Chicago and so experienced the Polar Vortex. Indeed, it brought the coldest weather of my LIFE and that is not an...

Today I am traveling for the holiday so I preemptively wrote this for ya'll. I don't have all the photos taken because while I have made progress on both TAST and other WIPs, I just didn't get around to photographing everything. First, I am making slow progress in my...

Shawkl’s PVC Quilt Hoop

As I mentioned, I enrolled in a beginner's crazy quilt course - Kathy at Shawkl runs it for free and I can tell already that she poured a lot of her heart and soul into the class. Anyway, I needed a quilter's hoop, and though I have a large round one that could work,...

I’m back!

I know my blog has been quiet for weeks - nay, months - now, but I am back home (at least for now). My anthropology project was awesome, and I'll pop over a little note on that blog sometime. So, what crafty news do I have to share? Well, first up, my Heart Mouse...
