World of Wine

I’m not much of a drinker. Most people would say I’m a lightweight. Some would say I aspire to be a lightweight. I think I have alcoholic drinks a couple of times per year, and the rest of the time it’s iced tea. If you hand me a big rum and coke, for every 12 […]

The Fabric of My Addiction

“Fabric” is the key word here. I’m finding that wire crochet is fully as immersive for me as any other type of fabric creation. I’ve been at it since about 9 pm, and it’s almost midnight now. I’ve been having trouble putting it down. The only reason I did is because the wire is a […]

Hooks and Loops of Steel

Well, the hooks are, anyway. I’m pretty sure craft wire is copper. But yeah, still with the wire crochet, and kicking myself for choosing what I think is the most ambitious of Yoola‘s beginner designs. It’s not that it’s difficult–once you learn how to do the stitches, it’s actually fairly easy, so long as you […]

Happy New Year!

Here’s hoping 2018 will be better than 2017. I’ll reserve judgment till about June. At that point, I’ll be able to count up the good vs. the bad so far and see where we stand. The PIP has “grounded” me to my craft area so that I can finally get it set up the way […]

I found these fabulous-looking shuttles…okay, they were found by someone in the tatting shuttle group on Facebook, not me, per-se, but that doesn’t make them less fabulous, and I’ve been collecting them since I saw the first one. They come from an artist in the Ukraine, who has a store on Etsy: […]

New stuff

Would you believe that I actually found time to discover new fiber arts even while unpacking? I did. It was completely by accident, too. Someone somewhere online mentioned something called soutache. I’d never heard of it before, so naturally I had to go look it up on Google. And naturally, once I found out what […]

Nightmare time

Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. We’ve been involved with selling one house and building another, and have finally made it into the new house. Words cannot convey how nightmarish this move has been. Pets kenneled in two different places, the family staying in three different hotels, closing dates pushed back, then pushed forward, […]
