25 February 2013


Not only am I still alive, but we have moved to Florida.  While the sewing room is still in boxes (and packed almost up to the ceiling fan's blades) we have been working on the yard when weather has been nice.  Given the blizzards in the news the past week ... I probably should not mention too much about the weather right now.

I will mention a new blog we've made.  Yes, WE!  Hubby is posting on this one as well, as it will chronicle our adventure here at what I've named the S&G Homesteade.  Garden and orchard pics are already going up there (as of this weekend) although we are still not caught up on pictures of what we've done these past three weeks here.  I will also move my cooking, canning, and gardening posts to that blog while leaving this one for indoor crafts.

Oh, and I have learned a new craft over the past month - knitting.  I started with a gauge swatch that turned into a child's size blue scarf in stockinette stitch, and am working on a dishcloth in garter stitch on the diagonal so I get a crack at increasing and decreasing.

Finally, a pic from my front yard taken Saturday morning:

I am now using this as my wallpaper on my computer.
