Outlander CAL – the standing stones

Between going away last weekend for my daughter’s birthday (she’s now 9), and my arthritis being more of a literal pain this week than normal, this square took me longer than I’d planned. I did get about half of it done while we were away (the train ride there and watching tv at night were […]

Outlander CAL – Claire

I decided to start this blanket with one of Jamie’s pet […]
