Please Help…

Dearest Readers –

I know its been a LONG time since my last update. I am doing well; however, today’s post is not about me. It’s about getting the word out on financial help needed by my sister-in-law’s brother named Brian.

Brian was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia on May 30th and has been in the hospital since undergoing chemotherapy. He has had a second bone biopsy which shows his white counts are growing so he is now undergoing a “constant drip” of chemotherapy at an elevated dose.

The purpose of the GoFundMe page linked below is to help with finances during and after his stay, mostly medical bills. Brian does not have insurance and is not being approved for state assistance (although they are doing their best to get that to work).

This is one of those things that every little bit helps. if you are able to donate – that would be fantastic! But, in today’s technology, if you cannot donate, its just as helpful if you could share this to your Facebook wall to get the word out. Of course, anyone can take a moment to send good thoughts and prayers to him and his family – and that’s just as valuable!

Thank you for your time – I hope you will consider a donation to the fund or a share to your Facebook wall.

God bless.

[Journal] 2017 Post Number Two…

shawlWell – good news: I have not fallen off the face of the Earth. I’m still around – just busy as can be and trying to be as focused as possible.

Succeeding at any of it? Not so much.

This is a pretty depressing journal entry. I do feel like I’ve lost myself (and my mind) a wee bit and I just need to get some crap down on virtual paper. Read the rest of this entry »

[Journal] 2017….

shawlI had hoped my first post to the blog in 2017 would be a fantastic fiber review of all things amazing from 2016… but nope. In fact, this ends up being a non-fiber, journal type post simply because my focus in the last week has taken a drastic turn to my health and well-being. Read the rest of this entry »

In which I dye…

In the last month or so, I spent ample amount of time learning to dye with kool-aid. I spent time with my friend, who has a plethora of chemical dyes, but I wanted to take a step into the more natural before going completely apocolyptic with forging for nuts, berries, and bark (I know that day is coming, I can feel it in meh bones).  Read the rest of this entry »

Playing with yarn…

nyx-playingI’m sure this is one of those topics that fiber bloggers have written about multiple times… Heck, I may have even blogged about it before. I’d have to go look.

But – hey, why not once more?

What is the draw of fiber artists to cats? Its not like they make fiber life easy. Heck, sometimes they can make it darn near impossible – so much so that I know I have put my yarn away due to cat. Read the rest of this entry »

Anti-Knitting

Artemis – enjoying the open window.

Nothing is more demotivational to a knitter than the A/C going out when it feels like 95’F outside. I had planned to pick up DC’s sweater and knock off the last sleeve and maybe, just maybe, get it joined together. Read the rest of this entry »

Where do I rank?

2014-12-01_stockings_mediumSeptember 25 – that puts us roughly 90 days until Christmas… and I am no where near even starting Christmas presents. Yowzers.

Someone had the cahonees (or however that is spelled) to post a meme on Facebook splattering the fact it was only 100 days until Christmas.

Who does that?

Sadists…. that’s who. Crazy, mean non-crafting sadists. Read the rest of this entry »
