Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May

on May 12th 2016

I should be gardening. I have been gardening, but I can’t quite manage any good photos because it’s been raining all month. Let me not dwell. Despite the rain, Maryland Sheep and Wool was as wonderful as ever. We had a relatively painless set-up despite the rain, because Jennifer was able to pull the truck […]

I  let this blog fall by the wayside while I became enmeshed in real world things.  I’ve gotten divorced–it was amicable but it was still hard.  I sold my house, watched my beloved dog reach the end of his days, helped care for my Aunt through the last months of her life, moved into my Aunt’s […]

A smile a mile wide

on Jul 11th 2011

It’s just scar tissue! My Mom is ok. I have never felt more fortunate, or more relieved.

Who wants a tour?

on Sep 22nd 2010

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks measuring and cataloging and giving some serious consideration to all of my supplies and tools here in my sweatshop studio.  I officially have an embarrassment of riches, my friends.  I knew that before I started, but now that I have a handy spreadsheet with all of the details […]

I keep meaning to write . . .

on Aug 25th 2010

And this is when I start feeling like a bad non-custodial parent . . . Seriously!  I’m back!  No really, I promise.  I do love you more than I love, you know, all that stuff I do when I’m away from you.  I do!* I also feel like I’ve said that before and not followed […]

Ugh.  Just, ugh.  And guh. I’ve been doing some organizing and housekeeping so I can finally take down the old Typepad version of this blog, and replacing old photos has me covering my eyes and sniveling.  Sheeeesh, I have posted some ugly, ugly photos.  I’m sorely tempted to just delete all of the bad ones, […]

And then I fell down a rabbit hole . . .

on Apr 13th 2010

And some jerk hacked my site, and blah blah excuse excuse excuse.  Photos coming, I promise, of Gulf Wars, and Celt Wars, and some knitting.  As usual, I have more pictures than are really appropriate for a blog post, so I’m messing with galleries and other such nonsense.  But all is well, and Mom is […]

Mississippi bound!

on Mar 13th 2010

And I’m off!  I am heading to the Gulf Coast with my living history group for a big fun event, and I can’t wait.  We skipped Celtic Summer Camp last year so I could be home for one of my Mom’s surgeries, so I feel like I’m in withdrawal.  I’ll see friends from all over […]

Uncovering the mirrors

on Mar 11th 2010

It’s been a year since our dear friend Mike Dobbs died.  I can say without hesitation it was the most difficult year of my life.  Losing Mike, my Mom’s cancer, Scott’s Mom’s cancer, lay-offs, my freak vocal chord injury . . . I know there were other terrible blows, but I  honestly can’t remember all […]

Photographic Evidence

on Dec 23rd 2009

At long last . . . proof that I’ve been out and about with my camera. After a long day at Rhinebeck: Clara signing the Knitters Book of Wool at the KR Retreat A Hedgerow Gathering. Minh, waiting to get into the marketplace at the KR retreat: More soon!
