Somehow this (long) weekend got away from me. As you know, I normally post on Sundays, but yesterday was all about V-day togetherness with my Handsome Man, so I set aside today (aka Second Sunday) for the blog. However, this morning it came to my attention that I had a rather large number of compromised… Read More Teasers
I’m bringing Vodka Lemonade to the office. Well, at least to the office knitters. I have a fantastic workplace – the benefits abound – not the least of which includes a lovely, talented, and eager-to-learn community of crafters.
