Trains are cool


A few months ago Rob suggested taking a train out to California for his Aunt Elspeth’s 80th birthday party as a surprise. I was a bit lukewarm about the idea at first, as it meant I’d have to miss the Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild Holiday Sale, but the more I thought about it, the more …

A Plethora of Pics


I have a bad habit of taking pictures and then never getting around to posting them. So, today I present a backlog of photographs from the last few weeks. When we did the Wine & Wool Festival at Sandhill Crane Vineyards, I learned that one of the cool things about outdoor shows is dragonflies visiting …

I am grateful

It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the US, so I decided to write a list of things I’m grateful for. My sweet and adorable boyfriend, a genuinely nice guy. Thanks, Rob! Everyone who has ever bought anything from me. Thanks for allowing me to do this thing I love. To thank you, I’m giving you 10% …

What I learned at my first fiber show

NMLWF booth

I survived the Northern Michigan Lamb & Wool Festival, and I’m recovered enough now to write about it. It was my first time vending at a show in my own booth, so I learned a lot. I didn’t make as much money as I had hoped, but that seemed to be true for vendors in …

What to do, what not to do

I've never been that diligent of a flosser.  I know it's one of those things you're supposed to do, but I have kind of a small mouth so it's hard to get my hands in there, and some of my teeth are really close together, so it's hard to get the floss in some of …

A quick update (because that’s all I have the energy for)

So last week I got the second set of botox injections.  I think they actually worked this time.  Hard to tell, because now I’ve got bronchitis, and I’ve had a few headaches just from coughing.  I don’t think they were migraines though.  But, um, yeah, all I’ve been good for the last few days is …

Blog Action Day 2008

As some of you may remember, I wrote a post for Blog Action Day last year when the theme was the Environment.  That was easy.  I had a lot to say about that.  This year they emailed me to tell me the theme was Poverty.  I had to think a bit.  Did I have something …

What’s going on, part deux

Ken's site is now back up.  For anyone who didn't catch the comment Juha left after my last post, Joe Gardner is indeed out of town, but managed to get it fixed from the middle of his two month mountain bike tour.  Thanks, Joe! It's going to take me a little longer than I planned …

I’m home with a migraine, so this might be a bit whiny and incoherent (or maybe just more whiny and incoherent than usual) so, um, sorry.  But remember the sweater I’ve been working on, like, forever?  The one whose sleeve I’ve frogged and reknit about 400 times now?  Yeah, that one.  I frogged the sleeve …

Oh, you want an update of what I’ve been doing?

Yeah, I thought so.  I haven't been a very good blogger lately.  I've been doing stuff, but not showing you.  What fun is that? So.  It's Show and Tell Day here at Acme Acres.  First off, I finished my punk grrl socks.  They rock, as they should. Now that the bus socks are finished, the …
