I finally made my way down to The Arts Project to take in the Caring Between the Lines exhibit which ends Saturday. I coloured a little bit on practically every piece. It’s awesome. Here’s what my photograph looked like before the colouring began. So neat! I’m truly honoured to have been a part of this … Read more
This is perhaps the most brilliant thing I’ve ever done. It fits her perfectly, and she is absolutely in love with it. Can you believe that I didn’t check gauge at all?? Or measure her? I eyeballed EVERYTHING. And I knit the pattern intuitively after two rows. It is with great relief that I cast … Read more
I’m now an official card-carrying member of the Thames Valley Trails Association. Probably one of my best decisions ever. This is is the Association’s 40th year, so to celebrate they are doing a dozen 10km plus hikes two Sunday mornings a month. Once completed, there’s a badge! The first 10.4 km has been completed.
To get our green on in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, the Bee and I started some seeds – lettuce and columbines. We ran out of containers, so planting has been paused. Next up: knitting and a movie.
I’m a bit late in posting these, but they are the girls’ valentines day gifts – pretty pin striped fingerless mitts – a free pattern designed by the most wonderfully talented Jen. The girls adore them. I know this because we have two giant baskets by the front door with dozens of hand-knit mittens, scarves … Read more

After the tour of the farm and getting acquainted with the alpacas, we gathered around the big farmhouse kitchen table with friends, and we felted alpaca around bars … Read more
I have an announcement. I am officially addicted to knitting tiny baby bunnies. And tiny baby carrots. The timing couldn’t be better with Easter around the corner. Call it early Easter decorating. The Bee made a house for the baby bunnies using a little shelf from her room. She used little felt flower cut-outs for … Read more
I’ve been battling a sore throat for weeks, so when I saw this natural remedy for sore throats AND I happened to have just bought two lemons, I whipped it up. It took me two minutes to make. Ridiculously simple. I’ll let you know how it goes. Right now it just looks pretty.
The sunshine called us outside and into the woods – again. It was cold despite all the woolly accessories and winter gear. After, we treated ourselves to hot chocolate and split a giant warmed up ginger molasses cookie. We were warm again. Once back home, I made a big pot of chicken soup following this … Read more
Our microwave died a few months back, and I was so excited to be one step closer to being the pioneer I’ve always wanted to be. We didn’t use the microwave that much, but it’s been interesting finding out how to go back cooking/warming up food before microwaves. I didn’t anticipate the whole question of … Read more
