Meanderings – putting it out there

Really need to get back to writing, if only to clear my head. This time of year, I start to think how life has changed since I started 2018. Some years, not so very many ways, but this year, lots – both personal and professional. I’ve changed my work and work schedule and have had […]

UNICEF

In all the year end/year beginning things I needed to do, I forgot to tell you about the money raised for UNICEF, (although I did remember to post in the group thread on Ravelry).  If you’re an American over the age of 40, you probably remember collecting money for UNICEF when you went trick-or-treating at […]

Today I released Canticle on Ravelry.  You […]
