Too many of my projects are in progress. I really needed to finish something, so I did what any crazy crafter would do. I started something new.
Last week I grabbed some scrap yarn from my bin of miscellaneous ends and started making squares. I used up almost every bit of these […]
Sometimes getting ready for the warm weather feels like a lot of work. Today I mowed the lawn, which is a new thing for me. I’m more of a inside chore girl, but I really like hanging out with my husband after work and so does my daughter. If I can mow […]
