Black Hills Majesty, Part 3

Talk about a super-long time to wait for a conclusion of a story! As I talked about in the proceeding post, I was MIA for over six months. I hid myself away from the world and took a very long hiatus from all things digital. Now that I am back, I thought I shouldn’t leave…

Still Here

I find it ironic that every couple of months I fall off the face of the planet only come back to apologize and vow never do it again. LOL Life is never that simple. I realize this is one of my longest breaks ever since starting this blog and I feel bad that I have not…

Black Hills Majesty, Part 2

  As promised, I am continuing from my last blog post which regale’s the time we spent in South Dakota this past May. Our trip through the Black Hills of South Dakota was extremely memorable. On my husband’s birthday, we climbed to the top of the highest peaks in the hills known has Harney Peak. Harney’s Peak…

Quick Update and a promise…

Okay readers. Enough is enough. I need to stop knitting and start creating more art! I know I am tough on myself, and I logically know I have been truly up to my ears in knitting projects since April. I just haven’t made my other passion important enough. If you are curious about what I have…

Long overdue update. Plus new first-time sock project underway!

Gosh! I just realized today that it’s been well over a month since my last post! This by no way indicates that I have stopped knitting altogether. Quite the contrary! I have been knitting my nights and weekends away. Last time, I had spoken that I had completed my first lace scarf. Since then, I have been…

She’s Crafty

Originally posted on Noe’s Happy Place:
What you are looking at is some really talented clay art that my oldest niece, Amanda, made recently. I am especially proud of her crafts. She and her sisters love the new game out there called minecraft. Personally, it’s not for me. But what I have gathered is…

Be the Change…

WARNING: Shameless plug for support ahead… Have you ever loved someone so much that your heart hurts to see them suffer? Have you ever believed in a cause so strong that you would do almost anything to support it? Then you are like me; someone who would stop at nothing to end the pain their…

Springtime Placemats Complete, plus a sneak peak into my next project…

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am feeling good about the progress I made over the weekend. I spring cleaned around the house. Washed blankets, sheets, fluffed pillows, cleaned closets; you name it, we probably did it. Along with all that spring cleaning, I finally put the finishing touches on my Springtime placemats. Yeah! In case…

Success! Green Shawl is done!

Hey everybody! Exciting news (at least for me). After nearly one year and some very slow knitting, I have finally finished my lovely green shawl! Several posts ago, I mentioned that I pulled this project out of deep hibernation and finally put myself to the task of finishing this little green monster. I think I…

Some Quick Updates

Sorry for the long delay in posting again. I have been just super busy knitting the days away! Since my last post, I have started and finished two more custom orders. Can anyone say “Basic Black Cowl”? You guessed it! Another order for a basic black cowl. Who would have thought that this would have…

A quick break from lace knitting…

For some reason, over the weekend I decided to take a little break from my knitted lace border I am applying to my green shawl to cruise around YouTube looking for some knitting techniques. I stumbled across a couple of videos on arm knitting. I have seen and heard about arm knitting before, but I…

Finished another custom order

This is just a quick update folks. Just wanted to share that I completed my fifth custom order this past week. This time the order consisted of two more basic cowls in black. This is ironic twist of fate since I just completed a single custom order that was also a basic black cowl for…
