Warm Ears

I cut the neck from a turtleneck sweater, sewed around the edge to keep it from unraveling, and pinned a hair flower to it. 

Instant fashion!

Dishcloths, Dishcloths, Dishcloths Everywhere!

What to do when everyone is sick (including me) and I have lots of time on my hands? 
Crochet dishcloths!

I found this site for lots of different dishcloths and they are fun and fast to work up.  I will have lots of new and pretty dishcloths for myself.  I was thinking of making kitchen gift baskets for Christmas and this will be an easy part of getting them put together.

Plenty of yarn waiting to become something beautiful!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The First Snow

The first snow of this season begins a new chapter in life here at the House of Crazy. I am looking forward to documenting the changes here for many reasons, but mainly perspective and accountability. Here is the first day of the rest of our lives.

I cut 8 inches off my hair and I am just getting over the first very nasty cold of the season.

 May all you days be new with grace!

It's Been A Long Winter

It was a long, hard winter for my family. We are starting to recover and I wanted to do a quick post of some projects I have gotten finished. I hope Spring has brought beauty and health and happiness to everyone's family.


My knitting and crocheting is improving, slowly.

 Homemade Cashew Butter

 Year 3 for this Columbine, it is bigger each Spring.

 This year's garden is planted and growing.

What Table?

What do you use your dining room table for?

We haven't eaten at the table in a week, but my house is filled with beautiful music...LOL!

And do you sit on your sofa? 

We have become a haven of wayward guitars, lately. I don't know what I am going to do with my family. I have tried to tell them that we are not running an instrument orphanage, but they don't seem to believe me...LOL!

These don't include the 4 in my daughter's room and the 3 in cases behind my sewing table and the 2 other amps shoved under the table. I am open to suggestions on organizing this insane room!

Picasso Chicken Pot Pie

This is what happens when you tell a bored kid, "I'll be right back"...

Happy Wednesday!

Fabric Stash

A few new acquisitions for the color piles!

Now that Autumn has arrived, and I am happy to look out my window instead of being outside...

I will be removing everyone's stuff from my sewing room and spending some seriously missed time with my new scissors and old machine...LOL!

Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Soon to be pie, cookies, and bread...

The drought was tough on the garden, but we have had a little more rain and there are 2 new pumpkins growing. A small harvest this year but a happy one.

The End of Summer

It feels good to be back in our Autumn routine, after a crazy ending to Summer. Our household had some job changes and now our day starts at 3:30am, sharp! I am putting up some pictures of what I have done so far with the garden harvest. Have A Great Day!

 Chopped Salad of cucumbers, tomatoes and multi colored peppers.

 45 quarts of green beans, by time I finished.

 Beets from the farmer's market.

20 pints of tomato juice and still counting...

I am looking forward to cleaning up the garden this week and getting ready for the broccoli and brussels sprouts to come in soon.
Happy October!

Serving Others

I don't have any pictures of our day serving because we were very busy.  We spent the morning starting the trim painting on one elderly neighbor's house and the afternoon helping our other neighbor with her yard work. She recently became bedridden, so while Hubby was weeding, I stitched a quick set of bed pockets for her. The caregiver and I changed her sheets and got the pockets set up with her remotes, glasses, medications, phone and snacks. She was so happy to have everything at her fingertips and no worries of knocking anything on the floor, where she can't reach it. 
I wish a blessed week for everyone!
P.S. Garden posting soon!

6:00 AM

Good Morning! 
A few snapshots of the garden in the first light of this beautiful day!

The corn is knee high and the pumpkins have leaves bigger than both my hands together.

 It's looking like a bumper crop of zucchini.

 I have to check the beans twice a day to keep them out of the tomato cages.

 I think I will need more cucumber recipes this year, 13 of 15 sprouted.

 Broccoli, YUM!

 French Fries!

 We had the tree taken down because it was all over the roof and in the electric lines. Bonus: No more shade over this end, it should catch up to the rest of the garden in no time!

Have a beautiful, creative weekend!
