My Grey Haven of Rest

rest-my word for the year -

Has anybody else ever started writing an Instagram post and then decided that the post content was way, w-a-y too long for Instagram so they turned it into a blog post instead?  That’s what happened to me, today, and then I realized that it’s a good thing!  I have been wanting to blog about my […]

Harvest Craft Show

My business has been in a state of cryostasis (terminology borrowed from the conversations of my sci-fi loving children) for a few years now.  This year is the year I decided to regroup, rebrand, and reset my vision so I actually accomplish some goals, and move my business forward.

My First Love: Textile Style

My first love in the world of textiles and creating them was crochet. When I was a little girl, my parents went to the neighbor’s often to sit and visit, taking my little sister and I with them.  This neighbor couple were much older than my parents, and were like surrogate grandparents to us girls.
