Granny Square Blanket

Granny Square Blanket

I have learned so much from doing this project. This project started because I wanted to learn how to make Granny Squares. I thought of making a scarf to begin with as it is a simple, beginner level project. I used Red Heart Yarn, and I had to continue using it. My colours are Aran, Dark Orchid, Teal, Jade, and Sky Blue. I kept making squares and decided to make it into a lap blanket because making “Granny Squares is fun!”…

Mood Scarf

Mood Scarf

This past week I told Katie about the project I found for us to do together. I figured it out a few weeks ago, but I was finally able to share with her this past week while she (and Matthew) were with us for Christmas. The reason I thought about this project was because of my excitement to do my Temperature Blanket. I have been wanting to find a simple and productive project for Katie and I for a while…

Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Over the weekend I made teriyaki and some homemade digestives. I was happy with all the results. I was nervous about making teriyaki.

Maybe they use the same thing, but since it comes in the take-out boxes from…

Crochet Temperature Blanket

A lot of people I follow on Instagram in my crocheting/knitting community are still working on a Temperature Blanket, and I was inspired by them. My favourite has been Olivesandpickles and her projects. She has given me some…

Blogging is difficult.

Blogging is difficult.

I find writing down and blogging my ideas, thoughts, aspirations, crafts, creations, and just stuff challenging. Why? I don’t find my interests to be something someone else may be interested in. My life is chaotic, full, and fulfilling. I like the things I do. I have bad and good days. I have things that stress me out and things that bring me joy. However, I just never believe my ideas are good enough to be shared. I love using my…
