Friday Recap


I was thinking about my blog today and just how poorly neglected she is.  In the very beginning, back in 2009, I blogged every day.  I don't know what I was thinking because I knew that it would be hard  to sustain.  With the rise of Instagram, blogging seems to be becoming less and less of a thing. Why take the time to blog when you can instantly show things and talk to friends on your phone?  Today I am longing for those simpler times and I thought I would set a goal of blogging on Fridays to show some of the things that I've been working on during the week, or things I may have shown on IG.

The first two photos are skeins of yarn dyed be me.  I have been interested in trying this for quite some time.  I now truly appreciate all the indie dyers I purchase yarn from.  It is not as easy as it looks.  I do love the process and surprise of how the finished skein looks.  I have a couple of blocks of the month I'm working on.  These are from Fig Tree Quilts Nantucket Mystery Quilt.  It's so fun to get a little bundle of fabric and pattern to make blocks each month.  I've been knitting up a storm.  I loved making this ombre' shawl.  The pattern is the Everyday Shawl by Jenny Faifel.  I think it would be fun knit up in yarn left over from other projects.

Recently I purchased these tulips from my local market.  It may be cold and grey outside, but inside my $7 tulips remind me that spring is really coming...right?  Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I enjoyed reading this post. I feel the same way about my blog. It has been neglected and I would like to try doing a weekly post. I am inspired by visiting and catching up on what you have been working on. Once a week is a good goal.

  2. Love visiting your week. Miss you...

  3. Thanks for making the time! I have enjoyed your blog, quilts and photos as well as scripture.
