New Year Resolution!

Happy New Year to all on this New Year's Eve!  

I have had a fun filled year with great success at my Etsy shop and on which has graciously invited me to join them at the Stitches West in California in February!  It will be my great honor to talk about my Classic Cabled Cowl Tutorial ( and!  

If you have not visited please find them here to see crafts from cooking to quilting!  Papers crafts, felting and jewelry making are just a few of the fun things you will find there!  Knitters, crocheters, sewers and gardeners share photos and skills!  They offer tons of workshops and classes of all kinds too!  Buy yarn, fabric and tools, all in the same spot!

Our daughter, and Etsy model, Zoe, (in the middle with her lifelong friends and hand made scarves pattern here) is in her second year of college studying Costume Design and loving it!  My husband, Brian and I are healthy and happily married 20 years this year!  Travel is in our future to see family in Florida, Texas, St. Louis and Oklahoma!

My resolution is the same every be a better person!  To be kinder, more generous and a better listener, which means trying to keep my mouth shut!  That in itself is a challenge for me! :)  Would love to hear what your year was like and any resolutions you might have!

Best and Happy New Year,

Lists and lists and more lists!

I am thinking of all the lists I make in a day!  Sometimes I can't remember things without my lists!  I have post is notes everywhere with reminders!  I leave my husband and daughter little notes....take out the trash, turn down the thermostat when you leave the house etc!  I even write little knitting notes and leave them on my patterns, or knitting books and magazines!

I'm only 51!!!  (but I tell everyone I'm 58...then they say "God, you look GREAT"!)  Does anyone else have this problem?  With the notes, not the lying about your age!!

Here are the latest lists!  Well, sort of!

My college aged daughter, made the Dean's List!
I have some new listings in my shop!
I will be making a list of spring cleaning chores!
I'm creating a list of toys to knit for my shop!
I can start by birthday list!

What are your lists?


p.s.  it's going to be near 70 in Omaha, Nebraska on Thursday.....I'll be doing the laundry and hanging it out on the line!  Can't wait!  Will have to put laundry detergent on the grocery list!

Time to Think Spring!

As Valentine's Day approaches, that means spring is around the corner!  While I have been happily busy these last months knitting scarves, baby stroller sets, blankets and cowls, I will welcome a little change!

Mini dresses of fabric and a crochet bodice are calling me!  Fabric to runs my hands over and cotton yarn to wrap around my fingers!  Doing my part to reuse the scraps of fabric from my Stroller Set orders, they will be the little dresses.  On the hunt for the matching cotton yarn is half the fun!  Matching colors and that!

Still snow on the ground here in Nebraska, but spring is coming!

All About Babies

It's all about babies!  Now that the holidays are over, I look forward to Spring and new life!  After knitting a zillion hat orders for the last few months, I have been busy with baby blanket sets!

I love to get my hands on fabric and yarn together!  New color combos, thick chunky yarns and some hand sewing bring it all together!  I have also found that covered buttons are THE BEST!  They really give a hat, blanket or cowl pizazz!

Thanks for reading, and please stop by my shop for more!  Just click on any photo!

Best to you and yours for a healthy and happy New Year,
