I Guess You Could Call It a Hiatus

July 14, 2013. Back from blogging limbo. It's summer vacation, which is supposed to mean that there is more time to do all sorts of leisurely things. We'll see.


  • Younger son is now married
  • Older son has a love interest
  • I am 54 now
  • I am still in love with my 55-year-old husband
  • We just bought a treadmill 
  • My two older sisters are both retired, leaving me just a BIT envious
So, what have I been up to craft-wise? Lots. So here's what I'll do - I'll post photos of different types of items/projects that I've finished since (gulp) last November. Since the last post mentioned secrets, I'll out myself.

Hats were a big theme for Christmas 2012. I knitted a total of eight Button-Tab Hats and gave them all away.

This Big Snowy Owl from Purl Soho was for my future daughter-in-law. It's really more like like a Gray Owl.

Ferryboat Mitts for a dear friend. One skein, quick knit, lovely. From Churchmouse Yarns & Teas.
Ferryboat Mitts redux for another dear friend.

Many, many Colorwork Ornaments by Amy Munson were given to friends and family.

My own needle-felted Santa. Selfish ruled - I kept him for our tree.
