Tea for two, and two for tea…

Whew!  I was just getting ready to hit the sack, when I remembered I hadn’t posted yet today!  And I wouldn’t want to break my streak just yet… it’s way too easy to skip one day, and have one day turn into 2 months.  Geez, I’m a slacker. Tonight I enjoyed a cup of what [...]

All that’s left is a band of gold…

Silver, actually, but I had to keep within my self-imposed theme, and couldn’t think of a silver ring song.   See how hard I’m working?  I should have painted my nails or something before I took pics.  I haven’t actually been wearing these all on one hand, but I couldn’t figure out a way to [...]

We Made a Quilt!!!

Today, Syd’s Sewing Circle (consisting entirely of Syd and Tina) completed their first quilt project without adult supervision (consisting of Syd’s talented mom)!    We made an “I Spy” quilt this week while I was off work (another week of cost-saving shutdowns for AE).  It’s about 5′ by 5′, and we made it with some [...]

Happy New Year!

So, once again, Mother Nature tried to scheme against me.  The day I had planned to drive to Rock Springs (by myself) for part of my big Christmas vacation, it snowed.  A lot.  And the wind blew.  And the roads were bad.  Bah.  But… two days later, it was only windy!  And by that point, [...]

I finished it!

Here is Miss Maddie as Snow White!  I finished making it last minute, of course.  And once again, we picked a pattern that was so much more complex than it looked like it would.  But she came out cute, don’t you think?  Tina took these pictures of her – Maddie thinks she is quite the [...]

Not what I was planning to post!

I’d planned on posting pictures of some baby gifts (bibs and a hooded towel) that I made for a friend’s baby shower.  But… I brilliantly forgot to take pictures before I gifted them!  So, no pictures. I’m working right now (well, not right this second) on a Halloween costume for Miss Maddie.  She is going [...]

Snowmass Crafty Time Tote Bag

Here’s more from my crafty, non-outdoorsy trip to Snowmass.  The blue jungle-y fabric had been in my stash forever, and I think I got the green lining fabric off the $1 rack at Wal-Mart.  (I had boycotted them for YEARS after them pissing me off one too many times, but now I’ll go there for cheap [...]

Another Jewelry Project

Here’s another  jewelry project I did a couple of weeks ago.  I had the enormous crate full of beading stuff out for a special request from Tina, and figured that as long as it was all out, and strewn across the dining room table, I might as well freshen up my own jewelry collection.  I’m [...]

Snowmass Craftiness

I spent last weekend in Snowmass Village, at Tina’s uncle’s house, where he’d invited Tina & her son & her nephew to come up & do some golfing for a few days.  Given my golf game on a normal day (BAD!!), I don’t ever golf with these people – they all play well, and play for money, and [...]

I’m back. Again. Worst Blogger Ever.

OK, I’m back again.  I’m such a big slacker – I’m always thinking of stuff to post, and then never posting it.  So, we’ll start fresh, here on July 20, with a craft project and an observation! Here’s what I’m wearing today.  I got the jade beads in Chinatown in Toronto.  I don’t usually do [...]
