What I made: A Kinetic Cowl


Over the weekend I was Glamping at William O’Brien State Park – which is 20 minutes away from Stillwater, MN .  There is a yarn store there that I have been meaning to visit since it opened in October 2009.  You’ve probably heard of it – it’s got a cute little name that makes me […]

hexis flipped to the back of the quilt.

I finally finished my hexi-quilt!  It seemed like it took forever, which it did – but only because I rarely found the time to work on it.  Once I made the effort to finish it- it actually went pretty fast. I posted this tutorial and this tutorial to show my progress and, as promised here, […]

Getting Ready for the Big Trip


For those of you following along on my big family vacation at Yellowstone, I mentioned that the trip was in the planning stages for months. After we made our reservations I did my best to get Athena ready for the trip. She needed new curtains, seat cushions, and more! My dad came out in April […]

A Family Vacation, Part 2


In case you missed it, I just returned from a family vacation in Yellowstone National Park. After we left Old Faithful, we drove up to the northern part of the Park for our Chuckwagon dinner.
