Social Invitations

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Today I accepted a whole bunch of social invitations. This is odd, since otherwise by day consisted of getting up early to work before church, going to church, and coming back and working some more. That might be why I accepted all those invitations. That’s not what Sundays are supposed to be like, even for […]

Wearable Muslin

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

I ended up working pretty much all day yesterday, since some issues arose with websites. In the evening, though, I traced off the pattern pieces, cut the dress from the unpleasant fabric, and basted the front together to see if I could figure it out.

Winter SWAP

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

I’ve been working what one of the guys I interviewed for the Successful Men series described as “half days” — 12 hours a day. However, I’ve also gotten some knitting done. Here you […]

Cooking Ahead and Lacy Little Knits

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

We’ve been snowed in all week. My classes were canceled, though I have all of them online this term as well so I’ve still had lots of grading to do. Lots of writing, as well, and websites to work on. #1 daughter and I spent last Sunday afternoon cooking for the freezer. This is what […]
