Time for a break!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

It’s been a mad winter! Woolfest in January (I have to brag about my awesome booth that I totally neglected to photograph), then mass book knitting and a bit of photography, then a fucking TORNADO at the end of February that threw the town into chaos. Then I accidentally agreed to a bit more recovery […]

I’m working on a new book!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

With all the hullabaloo of Fiber School (which was incredible–amazing group!) and hitting my first deadline and the new chickens and the new dog, I almost forgot to mention: I’m working on a new book with Wiley! I am VERY excited about this book. I’m also really excited about Wiley. Communication and feedback have been […]

Busy Bee!

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Not only have I gotten a lot done, but I’ve made time for myself to do my personal crafty stuff. I’ve decided that any crafty rewards I earn each week expire on Sunday, so that kind of […]

The Sheep Deck Chair, hooray!

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Before, my “system” was  to tie up the sheep in question and/or have someone hold them, and struggle to trim their hooves without cutting off my […]

Free Convertible Hoodie Pattern on Craftzine!

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Dinnertime at Cupcake Ranch

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

I tried to order the sheep deck chair from Premier last weekend, but it’s back-ordered until the 15th. On the bright side, that gives me two solid weeks to really infiltrate the sheep. I’m making it part of my morning routine (and by “part of my morning routine,” I mean “the entirety of my morning […]
