The Stars of Border War

Moira brought three kittens to Border War, a local SCA event.  They were definitely the stars of the day!  This post is entirely gratuitous kitten photos with me and my friends. In case you’re wondering, this patched hood is the same linen hood that was in this post of me blacksmithing.  It has worn down

Kittehs!

Just some pictures of my favorite sewing helpers. Someone decided that the camera was nonsense and just wanted pets. Hey, Mama, you’re not using this, are you? What?  It’s comfy.

Once again I have a garden!  These photos are only from 11 days ago, and I’m already astounded by how much the garden has grown since then.  I’ve already eaten two salads from it, and used some kale and herbs in a bean soup.  It’s so wonderful! I’m just so excited to have a garden

For example, for years people have been telling me that I need to do daily stretches for my knee problems, and what always happens?  I do them really

Project 365: Days 1 – 7

One of my favorite bloggers, Kaylah of The Dainty Squid, challenged herself to take a photo every day of the year last year.  She called it Project 365.  Now she’s challenging others to do so, too.  It sounds fun, so I’m going to try and do this.  🙂  Here’s my first week! ~*~*~*~*~*~ 365:1 I

I have a garden!

My wonderful friend Charlotte helped me plant a garden!  She transplanted some sorrel, chives, and kale from her own garden (which is huge and amazing), and gave me a few other seeds.  Last week we went shopping and bought all the supplies, dug out the old plants and turned them under, then laid out the
