Project Roundup

But before we get into the projects, it’s Sarah’s birthday today! Six years, and I still haven’t updated the party hats. She wanted to sit and read all day for her birthday, which is fair enough. And back to the projects: The Palace Library is coming along, slowly. This counter nook has my attention; I’ll…… Continue reading Project Roundup

I have a plan for filling this with yarn, but I’m still working out how to do the fat quarters. I’ve also been crocheting a new amigurumi pattern,…… Continue reading Project Roundup
