What a month March was! Although it’s my birth month I was glad to move into April for a few reasons. Before I get into that I not only had the great pleasure this year to join both the Modern Quilt Guild and the local-to-me Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild, but I was able to… Continue reading Les Fleurs are blooming
One of my most favorite knits to date is my State Street Cowl (rav link). It was a super quick knit thanks to the bulky yarn and knitting with size 13 and 15 needles.

I also produced and blogged about several finished objects of which I’m fairly proud of: my first complete quilt, an awesome… Continue reading 2012, it was a very good year…

I “technically” finished it about 3 weeks ago but only wove in the ends the week of Thanksgiving since… Continue reading FO: Spindrift cardigan
