I hope this image isn’t too large, I didn’t take the time to check. looking at it here, I feel like little progress has been made if you consider that this has been on the needles since August 28th, 2011. That’s right, more than 5 years now. I started with three rows of each yarn and am up to 9 rows. Once I got to 9, I was going to …

This is my second year participating in Spinzilla, a global event to bring attention to handspinning. Last year, I finished up with 5 skeins of 2 ply, or 1223.98 yards, plied yardage of 3671.94…and 194.66 yards of 3 ply, or 778.64 for a grand total of 4450.58 plyed yardage or 2.53 miles in 46.5 total hours! The only goal I had last year was to make enough to earn the …

Don’t you just hate it when you decide something and then moments later, forget you had decided and inadvertently switch it up? I have been in the precess of making my first coptic bound book for the past couple of weeks. I found a you-tube tutorial that seemed straight-forward and easy enough to follow. I gathered some papers and have built a pretty hefty book. I am using some white …

So wordpress has this new feature. I like the clean interface, but I don’t think that all the stuff has been my problem with posting. I don’t really know what my lack of motivation is from, but I have been writing again, just not blogging. I bought a new Macbook Pro a couple of weeks ago, and in the bargaining one does with oneself (surely it isn’t just me) I …

So the big five oh has come and gone pretty uneventfully, other than it having been a year of doing. all. the things…In January, I tried a new (to me) yoga space and while I was committed to going, it just wasn’t the space for me. The teacher was great. Her method was a bit too athletic for the practice I want to re-establish, so I am once again back …

My desk is cleared and I am ready for vacation. I am beyond. Ready. Life at the office over the last few weeks has been something less than pleasant. Or maybe just a series of curious unpleasantness. It is much the same as it always is, and perhaps my sensitivity to the less-than-pleasantness is solely due to the fact that vacation starts tomorrow. That is all well and good benefit-of-the-doubt …

I had hoped to get some lists caught up while I was working registration for a work conference the last week of January, but that just didn’t happen. I am going to keep plugging away and will eventually be in the groove with it…or not…whatever the outcome, at least for the moment it is still holding my attention. I really had a hard time with the week 3 topic of …

Today brings an end to preparations (at work) for our annual conference. The conference itself is next week, an entirely different chaos, but the planning and doing are over. If it isn’t ready now, it just won’t be happening…but I am pretty sure everything is ready. I get so stressed leading up to this very moment right now. It happens every year. And the steam is now releasing. I started …

In other words, no year in review or resolutions post for me, but rather more to the point of what is. I can’t believe another year has come and gone. My baby will be 29 next week. How does that happen? I am going to make a better effort to get back to regular blogging going forward. I think this might happen, because rather than saying I am going to …

I started to post this morning about Lilli Munster passing into the ether on Sunday and the words just didn’t come. She has been my shadow for so long, it strikes me as odd when I realize she isn’t there. The silence is what brings it home the most. There was an unpredictable and unfortunate incident with Katy, out most recent addition, and her reaction was as instantaneous as Lilli’s …
