In good times and bad

For the good times

fabric carefully chosen

the search for the perfect pattern

hours of cutting

And piecing together (almost finished)

To be gifted to a friend on her big day

And the bad

Moments of sadness, the heartbreaking rush to finish a blanket that will have fleece sewn on the inside, to keep the receiver warm during treatments of chemo

Silence isn’t always golden.

11 days

& 2,216 yards of yarn.


Not exactly the best picture, it is indeed finished & has been gifted to the young woman for who it was intended. Not as big as I had intended, I had to run out to get more yarn few times.

….and not just yarn for this current blanket. There was a break in the weather and I was able to head on over to Maine to visit my father…who happens to live exactly a stones throw away from a Joann Fabrics.


And then there was that package from Michaels that resulted in this 

   I had planned on making each child a blanket but at the last moment Lorelai changed her mind and decided she wanted Caron Cakes lemon lime yarn…which of course I only had two of, so as there was only one day left for the sale and it was snowing outside and you can only get them in packs of three on the website…naturally I ordered 9 skeins…though I may need one more lemon lime and of course, it has been discontinued 😳

Another item recently finished that has also found its new home 

I won’t lie, I enjoy the messy bun hat trend going on. They whip up fast and they fund my yarn habit.

Another thing supplying my yarn habit are my little rabbits, who have found a way to escape and torment the chickens     🎵 One of these things is not like the other 🎶

We did have to move the pen to harder ground so they can’t dig out again. It’s not the being out with chickens that worries me, as Carrick frequently free ranged with our birds in the winter. It’s the digging underneath the greenhouse that has me concerned. 

Stay inside bunnies!! We have too many predator issues and it’s too cold for Moose to be sleeping outside with you!
Have a nice night folks!
