This week was my first work trip now that I’m back in the role where I have to travel again. I went to scenic Juneau, our damp but lovely state capital. I got there on Monday, and had a little time to wander around before getting to the work part of the visit. By sheer… Continue reading Juneau and Back Again

So I decided to give myself little breaks over the course of the day, and get my stitch markers organized. I put them in a bead/findings box that was originally… Continue reading On Your Mark
Well, the Dockside cardigan is moving along fine. The fronts are blocked without incident and the sleeves are started as well. Since I don’t really have to do any thinking about that, my mind is wandering to upcoming projects. I also don’t have to think about the very next projects – that is going to… Continue reading Squirrel!
