To Boldly Go – Star Trek baby blanket

It has been far too long since I last updated here (I’m kinda putting off checking just how long), so it’s high time I updated. The anemia/depression/arthritis mix has really knocked me around, but I’m finally getting better. So I bring to you an update – a new pattern! This baby blanket was a custom […]

Branching Out

I have been negligent of my blog over the last few months, due mostly to these fibroids I discovered I have in June. I’m battling some severe anemia from it, which brings a whole host of issues with pain, energy, attention, and insomnia. I have quite a few posts I’ve been meaning to make, but […]

Star Trek CAL – FINISHED!

Star Trek – the banner

There’s been a heatwave through my part of the state lately, so it has been absolutely disgusting here. My house doesn’t have air con and only one ceiling fan, so it is not made for this kind of weather. I have an air cooler, which is like a strong fan, so it hasn’t been a […]
