National Crochet Month?!

I've been crocheting for a long time (20+ years?), and have never known that this was a thing. Not only is March considered National...

My Newest Favorite

For the past several years, I have been a part-time vendor at our local Renaissance Festival. I love this for so many reasons, but one of...

Exposure Doesn't Pay the Bills

Just one more short post about pricing and the worth of your art before I move on to other topics. I read a post the other day from an...

How I set my prices

I mentioned it in last week's post, so I wanted to be sure and follow up with the formula I've come up with for pricing my crochet items....

What is your art worth?

Pricing items is a tough one. I see conversations about it daily in my social media crafty groups and pages. A new crafter/seller is...

2023 Goals

Traditionally, I am not big on making new year's resolutions. I feel that they set me up for failure, and I don't want to do that to...

New Year, New Me?

Lol, nope! I plan on staying the same foul-mouthed delight that I every was. I do have some goals for the new year though. I want to...

A Cute-erus?

Being a female, I have been in possession of a "real" uterus for 49+ years. I can honestly say that not all of that time has been fun....

Beer Mittens

Being a MN girl, I am very accustomed to outdoor winter activities. Tailgating, ice fishing (yes, we really do that!), hunting, etc. ...

Plants that I can't Kill

I have what most people would call a 'brown thumb', meaning that my home is where plants come to die. I don't have good south-facing...

Must see TV...

Wait, what?! It's already after 9:00 PM here, and I promised you a blog post about my favorite shows. Mustn't back out of that deal!...

How do you find time?

Missed one day, darn it! Oh well. I guess I just jump right back on the wagon and move forward. I often get asked something along the...

Crochet Tools 101

The other day, I confessed my love of binding clips for quilting. Today, I thought I'd switch over to my other love, and talk about my...

My oldest UFO

Honestly, at this point, I don't even remember when I started this quilt. It has to be at least 20 years, if not longer. The blocks are...

My favorite notion

Notions are as varied as the quilters that use them. I'm not talking about the major tools we use (machine, iron, rotary cutters, etc),...

My First Quilt

Not the first quilt I ever worked on, but the first one I made start to finish by myself. I made this for my sister when she was...
