Hi, I'm Michelle and this is my so-called handmade life.
365 Days of Procrastination
Well, it ends here. I’m giving myself until mid July to finish the bigger, space stealing projects I have in various stages of completion. We tend to have too…
Nice, Low Intensity Knitting
I think I deserved a little low intensity project after the last one. This knit up in two days. It’s the Petawawa Toque from Tara Lynn-Morrison of Good Night Day….
So, I guess it’s no surprise that I’ve been test knitting exclusively for Good Night, Day the last couple of months. I don’t think I’ve ever produced so many knits…
The Rory Needs a Break Scarf
This modified Unicorn Stripes (by Antonia Shankland) scarf was a form of therapy. Who cares that it’s super long and repetitive? It uses lots of stash yarns, some of which…
This has been the summer of phone pictures. I knew finally getting an iphone, or even a phone that worked right, would be great for spur of the moment videos of…
Holla Knits Summer Knit-along
The heat in Southeast Texas has taken an ugly turn this week. I know I sound like old people saying it, but I have never felt a summer this hot….
lovely photos. The first one looks like the beginning of something new and I really like the feather, even though it feels like November to me. Here we've been having quite a lot of snow, so there aren't that many colours out yet.
Don't mind me, I'll just be over here, freezing my butt off looking at the freezing world outside my window as I oogle your pretty flower pictures. 🙂 Nice to see there's some pretty colours outside somewhere on this continent! Very pretty pictures.
Aah lovely. I especially like the butterfly one (altho in real life I'm a bit scared of butterflies when they are fluttering about my head…)
Thanks, Corinne! Though it never gets too bleak here in winter, we have very little color. These are just old photos from late summer. Personally, I'd prefer a true, snowy winter to the blah/ dead grass kind.
That's funny! My daughters boyfriend hates those giant grasshoppers we get in summer and we tease him about them. I was surprised I caught a butterfly on camera. It's funny how the angle makes my yard look full of flowers and life. It was not at all. Ah, selective photography.
Well, these are old photos I dumped from my phone. Im cheering myself with them as well. Our winters are bland- a lot of gray days, yellow grass, and still- Mosquitos!
true winter is indeed beautiful. Here we have a lot of grey days that make winter boring, but snow and cold are nice.
