Soon we will see the next season of fan favorite Outlander. One of my little habits is to closely watch the clothing. Not so much the men's clothing, although I have seen some good looking kilts, I study the knitwear. Because knitted shawls, scarves, cowls etc. have returned to popularity, there is always something one can take away from each episode. I am a not so good beyond basic knitting but I can crochet like a mad woman!
I have finished the two memory quilts and they are on their way. Truly, the most difficult project I have ever done. Too many painful memories and I will never make another. I feel like a weight has been lifted. Crazy? Maybe. But that's the way it is.
I have intentionally let the blog go idle for a while because of intrusions, ridiculous statistics and general discontent with the process. I have researched other platforms but moving everything is not really an option for me. I am not a technical person and since this is a hobby blog of sorts, I feel no need to get professional intervention. Hopefully, this little pause in posting has cured some of the problems but if it hasn't I will deal with that in another way.
Now, that said, I am sorting out the studio. (again) I cannot believe how quickly things go awry when I am in work mode. I have some UFO's in progress, some classes lined up for Destiny, and a new little quilt I am anxious to make.
Hope you all have had your wish granted by the Ground hog or what ever harbinger of Spring you follow!
