Happy Valentine's Day (Free Gift!!)

Happy Valentine's Day (Free Gift!!)

Hello my dears!

It's Valentine's Day, and, while it isn't a universally favored holiday, I love an excuse to eat chocolates and maybe have a bit of self-pampering. Plus, I'm not at all averse to the sudden abundance of pink, red, and hearts! Seriously, I love hearts. I couldn't tell you why, but they are one of my favorite shapes. I am perfectly determined to one day make myself a dress or blouse covered in hearts!

Now, it wouldn't be a proper celebration of Valentine's without some manner of gift giving. And I have a rather lovely present for all of you!

Choosing Not to be a "Pinterest-Perfect" Blogger

Choosing Not to be a "Pinterest-Perfect" Blogger

Hello my dears,

I haven't the faintest idea on what to write about today. I know I want to write something, but my mind is just a blank!

I could talk about the glorious smell of the rain sprinkling down outside. Or plopping on the floor in front of our big window in the foyer attempting to capture a picture of the elusive male cardinal that frequents our bird feeder. Or perhaps I could tell you how much I am enjoying working away on my shawl test knit. But that all seems so inconsequential.

First Day of Work

First Day of Work

Hello my dears,

Today was my first day of work at my new job and I absolutely LOVED it! I am going to be working two or three days a week at a local quilt shop. Which means I'll be spending loads of time surrounded by gorgeous fabrics. Can it get any more amazing than that?? Yes. Yes it can.

Yarn Dyeing Days

Yarn Dyeing Days

Hello my dears,

Today was one of those days where everything seemed just a wee bit crazy! I spent the majority of the afternoon/early evening dyeing up new yarn colorways. While waiting for colors and speckles to set, I did a bit of knitting on a couple pairs of socks I have on the needles, read part of a murder mystery, chatted with some of my family via FaceTime, and generally kept very busy.

Introducing Mac!

Introducing Mac!

Hello again!

I initially planned to to film a podcast, have it all uploaded and ready to go for today, but life happened. My sisters left today after being here for the past week and a half. I decided cleaning house and getting back to a usual schedule, (not to mention trying to convince my body that it does not need to develop a cold!) was more important than trying to rush job a podcast. So instead of a podcast post, I want to introduce you to my new little buddy: Mac!!

When Sisters Come to Town

When Sisters Come to Town

Hello my dears!

I have been rather silent on all social medias the past week. My sisters and best pals have been in town visiting which means loads of shenanigans! We've been hanging out, watching movies, crafting, visiting friends, and even managed a trip to the beach. It has all been rather splendid! (I will forewarn you: this is a picture heavy post without much blathering from yours truly.)

A Lemon Agnes - September 2017 Make for Minerva Crafts Blogger Network

Hello my dear friends!

Despite my general silence on the interwebs, I have definitely be busy! But less on crafty things and more on practical, moving and packing things. We have officially moved house and I am hoping to get my studio set up post-haste! Unfortunately it is currently in shambles while the walls await a much needed paint job.
