Are You Blogging About Crochet?

Because if you are, I want to hear from you.  How about Tweeting about crochet?  Likewise.  Oh and don't forget to use the #crochet hashtag when you do.Though I should clarify, if you're a linker on Twitter, I probably won't follow you back.  You gotta interact with your followers.  Sorry, that's just what it's all about.  (I know, if you're new to twitter, it can be confusing. I'll write an article on that later.)...more

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

This has been a long journey. I used to think that the light at the end of the tunnel was a freight train coming at me, but what I didn't realize was there were two tracks in that tunnel and fortunatley I was standing the other track as the train sped by. So at some point trought all of this I had a choice, whether conscious or not, to get or stay on the alternate track. Close enough so I could feel the hot, still air in the tunnel and smell the burning coal as the train passed. But far enough away that I was safe and able to carry on and reach the light....more

"Hookers" Fight Cancer: Share A Square 2010 Works For Quality

The folks at the Post Office are wondering about the packages that I juggle as I leave each day. They have no idea that inside are lovely crocheted squares (6' x 6') from around the world that will be made into afghans for children at a cancer camp next summer.  We did this before in 2008; "hookers" united from across the world to make 150 afghans for the children of Camp Sanguinity.  So far this year 1,413 squares have arrived for Share A Square 2010 (a little more than a tenth of what will eventually be joined together).  We need more! ...more

There's an App for That Crafty Thing You Do

I live with my iTouch near me all day. It's my alarm clock in the morning, my constant reminder of what to do during the day, my note pad, my food and exercise tracker. I SO wish more places I went had wifi, so it could help me be even more productive. I do not own a "smart phone" yet, though as soon as I have the time to stop my cellphone store, I'm picking up a Android phone. Will it replace my iTouch or will both live in my pocket all day? ...more

Thursday Morning

Good morning sister's Thursday (AKA Thor's day) and I have an MRI this afternoon. *SCREAM* I hate MRIs wirth a passion, I hate feeling like a piece of bologna in a steel plate sandwich. (Yes ladies I am claustrophobic) I have to have all my jewelry off, partial dentures out and I feel very naked that way. My teeth keep me from looking like a refugee from a boxing ring and my necklace, earrings, rings and bracelets keep me from feeling exposed...if that makes any sense at all. ...more
