For the Moms

Hello all, I hope this post finds you safe and well. I have tried to start this post and failed several times. In the US, tomorrow is Mother’s Day, so some sort of celebratory salutation seems to be required.

Bottom of the Bag

Goodness--where have the weeks gone? One minute I was furiously knitting Mother's Day gifts and the next it was August.

For many reasons, most of which are too personal and dull to be detailed here, we chose Phoenix for our home.

Goodbye 2016

Happy New Year, everyone.  November didn't have a post a day, as I had hoped, but I managed a respectable 18 posts, more than any other month last year.  Then December arrived, and I threw myself full-tilt into holiday celebrations and secret projects... But now I am back.  My fellow bloggers are celebrating the best … Continue reading Goodbye 2016
