Gear Switching 

Friday I technically had to myself, which didn’t seem to make much difference since my brain is back on all the brother issues. To divert attention, I started playing with a bag design that will eventually receive screen printing. More and more towns in our region are banning plastic bags and charging $0.05 for paperContinue reading “Gear Switching “

In search of supplies

  This week has been filled with so many things. I’ve been trying to get a handle on my new job, delivered 6 lamps to a new shop, hubby’s birthday, cat care for our neighbor, and much more.  There have also been counter offers on my dad’s house too. Research has commenced in earnest forContinue reading “In search of supplies”

They really have a lovely gardenContinue reading “Visiting a new shop”

Yarn

Last fall I ventured into Corvallis’s newest yarn shop “Stash” and discovered a wonderful selection of Oregon crafted fibers. Since then I’ve been slowly discovering the joy of working with yarn, even dragging skeins here and there to wind or start projects. Public crafting!!! Yikes!!  The trip to Texas back in June helped start myContinue reading “Yarn”
