Instagram LifeHappy New Year! 🎉 I spent the first day of 2020 plotting out my year and lots of hard work and interesting challenges are on the horizon. I've decided on a publishing date for The Case of the Golden Mushroom. I'm going to redo some illustrations and the cover and release it October 2020! Mildred is the villain of the story, but I love her smarts, her drive and her daring. I've done a few posts of Mildred before, but the year of the mouse is Mildred's year to shine! . 🦔 . #thecaseofthegoldenmushroom #thegreatmushroomdetective #hedgehogs #midlredtrevorthornes #mushroommysteries #2020goals #middlegrademystery #mushrooms

When does stash busting become stash stuffing? When you decide to make a blanket from stash and you realize some yarn is just not quite the right color. I decided to make a blanket from an old project that wasn’t working … Continue reading
A friend had a baby and I decided to make some baby slippers. They knit up quickly and are fun to make. I use a pattern by La Droguerie (of course). The original pattern is for frogs but I didn’t … Continue reading
