InCoWriMo 2017 – I’m In!

By | 0 Comments

Big commitment, that International Correspondence Writing Month (InCoWriMo)!  28 days, 28 letters.   Am I in? I’ve mulled it over.  I considered my failed participation in the League of Extraordinary Pen Pals, how I began writing to a group of people – probably 10 or so – and every, single one of them fell by the wayside.  My fault or theirs? …

Mother’s Day Approacheth

By | 1 Comment

Just because I couldn’t buy yarn for myself at Sheep and Wool didn’t mean I couldn’t buy it for someone else. You would think a festival would be a great place to buy a Mother’s Day gift. Nice thought, but the truth is, my mother is only a fair knitter, and she knits mostly charity things – baby blankets, hats,…
