A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.


In life, I realize there is a role for everyone I meet. Some tests me. Some uses me. Some loves me. And some teaches me.

But the ones whom are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in me.  You are the rare and amazing being who reminds me why it’s worth it.  Thank you.

The past few months have been a whirlwind of changes in both my teens and my personal life.   But, one thing remains constant.  I am STILL knitting, spinning, wet felting, designing, sewing, and working to open an etsy shop.

After taking a 3-month break, I am now back to share my daily reflection, random thoughts that I find interesting, and not to mention my crafty obsession.  More on my fiber adventure tomorrow.  For now, I want to enable you with new projects.  What’s best?  They are absolutely free!

  1. You gotta check this Snowflake Stranded Shawl beauty out.  Use coupon code Snowflake for your free copy.  Deborah Tomasello, the generous designer, wants to give away as many patterns as she can!   I’m not sure how long this is good for so grab it while you can.
  2. Autumn leaves cowl is another freebie.   Use coupon code MyNewCowl at check-out.  The offer is good ’til January 5.
  3. Hat with Small Lacy Diamonds in Size Adult is up for grab–complimentary–’til January 31.
  4. 33 Blocks Sock is free for winter duration.  No coupon needed.
  5. The elegant Rhombix scarf is free ’til January 12
  6. Cirque Cardigan is a part of Lace Ice ebook, free through March 15.
  7. Get your free pattern code when you sign up for Lucy Hague’s newsletter.  Her Celtic shawls are absolutely fabulous, fun knits.

Where did the last week go?  I actually enjoyed the days where my fingers didn’t hit the computer keys.  How did you spend the holiday?

Friday evenings are da best!  I go to the library room of the house and start creating.   TGIF!  (Shown below is one of my three 12″ by 12″ knitted blocks for a local community project to a Rosie Bareis 2014 fundraiser, a fun and elegant piece to show off lacy details.)

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. Sarah, you’re back ! I’ve missed seeing these windows into your life from afar. Your kids are growing into such handsome people ! xx

    • I have gone through two laptops this year. It made bloggin’ a challenge when I couldn’t upload my photographs. I am using a hand-me-down from my MIL right now and is slowly fading away lol Hubby managed to get another used one from his friend so I will soon have one that may be 2 years old. Hopefully, everything will be back to “normal”. I am dreading to upload 6-month-worth of photos to flickr though…how have you been? How was your holiday? Have you have your family reunion that you do every year? What’s on your designing plate? I feel lonely here these days without a consistent venue to muse. I have been posting random thoughts on Facebook…but it’s not the same. Are you on Facebook? Major cleaning and hopefully getting to dye some yarn today. What are you up to? Miss you, sis. It’s nice to blog again :D

      • ARe you still living in the same town as you were a couple of years ago? We really lost touch I think. Anyway, my duo keeps gigging (have one tonight) but our last tune composed was in August. I am thoroughly immersed in knitting though. I am up to a lot there .Sarah, your kids have changed so much in the last year ! All grown up :) xxx

      • Yes. I’m still in the same house, same town. Not sure for how much longer though. I am on your “music” email list. Will the new tune be published soon? I just don’t have any idea how long it takes from recording to the soundtrack release. My kids are all in teens now and very independent. I so miss those days when they are just fine with hanging out with mom! :0( Have your weather turn?

  2. Welcome back! And happy new year!
