My new neighbour (and old room mate!) Kerrick is an avid knitter (and way WAY more of an expert at it than I!) and loaned me her ball winder so I could do some stash tidying… 40 balls later… Pretty, huh? I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed using that winder, I found it [...]

I hung my first quilt-the sampler-in my bedroom to block out early morning sunlight. It streams in and lands right on my sleeping face. The way it hits the quilt is so pretty. I used a vintage floral sheet for the backing of this quilt. There are a couple projects I am currently working on, [...]
