Another Day

Well, I has been a few days since I posted. I’m not doing very well at keeping up with NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) but I do have to say it has kept me motivated which is something I really need right now. I have a lot of pain during the winter months and sometimes it is very difficult to get out of bed to do anything. At least this gives me a reason to get up. I want to do something so I can write about it and after November is over I will try to keep it up....more

I'm Thankful for Painkillers & Yarn

Impractical Crochet

I just finished making this "dishcloth" but it is a mammoth of a dishcloth.  It is really pretty but not very practical for washing dishes since it is about 10 inches in diameter.  Could you imagine washing dishes with something as big as a large pie?  Or a record?

I'm Thankful for Memories

You are my Sonshine

Sleeping Beauty

Merryweather: Sweet princess, if through this wicked witch’s trick, a spindle should your finger prick… a ray of hope there still may be in this, the gift I give to thee. Not in death, but just in sleep, the fateful prophecy you’ll keep. And from this slumber you shall wake, when true love’s kiss, the spell shall break....more
