If I make a cute thing . . .

but do not post on the interwebs, did it really happen?

It's been a while. We moved to Saint Albans and we love it here. Initially our apartment was too small to set up any kind of sewing area so I took up crochet. I made lots of little bits of things and didn't take many pictures. I also made a scarf for my cat, which he seemed to enjoy.

You can't see from the picture but he is purring loudly here, I swear. 

I had a short career as an LNA. I loved the people I cared for and I didn't mind the work, but there was never enough time or help to give the kind of care that I wanted to. It was a good lesson in learning my limits.

Now I work at a craft store, and we're in a slightly bigger apartment and I can sew again. It is marvelous. To get back into sewing shape I made tissue holders for everyone I work with.

I've also made a pillow cover or two.

I am trying to get in the habit of taking in process pictures. At this time of the year it is a fight against the fading of natural light, and the desire to get to that moment when an assortment of pieces turns into an actual object. That moment keeps me going.


  1. Keep the photos coming - they are great.

  2. I do a lot of thinking about projects I plan to do, but I'm not so good at the actual implementation.
    Your beautiful work inspires me to get on with it already.
