November 15, 2014


Well, it sure took us a while to put together all of the necessary pieces but wow, I'm thrilled we have everything to start blocking our afghan squares. I can't wait to see how it all comes together!


The Day & Ross winter jacket has now been worn outside. It officially feels like winter. Or at least, cold. BUT warmer with a wintery jacket!


After our awesome chat yesterday I walked down to the SPCA thrift store and discovered some really cool crafting supplies that were inside this chest of drawers. I found small wooden dowels which will be perfect for making my crocheted dolls. I felt like I was doing something incredible secretive in public going through all this cool stuff. Reminded me of the post I wrote about Robbie recently. Very cool.

I was like, I know that jacket! Yes, it is that time of year. It's even cold here which is weird. Got my puffy coat out!

Lol, Shannon, for all these years I I thought it said Dan & Ross!!

OMG, Suzie... it's like going through Robbie's drawers!!!!! Magical. I think you've invited in some seriously playful wonderful mojo. What a delight!

late add for me.

The afghan project sure is teaching us lots of steps in knitting, I haven't done a piece-it-all-together thing in quite a while. The blocking has been interesting, I really can't wait to see what it looks like all together!

What a beautiful treasure trove you found Suzie! That looks like it has bounty-potential for sure. I love that the doll is such a mystery in how it's coming together. Very adventurous.

Yay for blocking! I'm always excited when I get to that stage, so close to officially being done although I guess you have to put everything together, don't you?!

It's true Jamie, that is exactly what I thought when I opened the drawers, like I was a kid again going through Robbie's stuff. I couldn't believe it. I've been to this store before and never noticed it before!

Me too Shannon, the doll thing continues to be such a weird but fun mystery. :) Wait until you see the "body armour" I found in the doll clothes section of a thrift store I went to! Superhero Suzie the Foodie is getting closer and closer...
