Our Cape May Get-away

Our first vacation of the year is being spent at the Jersey shore in Cape May. Cape May has to be one of my favorite vacation spots. We decided to be budget friendly and choose the Buckingham Motel. For the price, you can’t beat it. While the decor may be a little out-dated, it is…

Knitting and Crocheting and Spinning…Oh my!

I’d say that over the past few months or so, knitting, crocheting, and spinning have consumed a greater portion of my time so much so that I have been able to finish 4 unique color samples of my gradient yarns that I’m in collabo over with a LYS, I’ve been able to put a huge…

Southport, NC

We got into Southport, NC today and are leaving Sunday. We are in town for a Saturday wedding that my sister, my son, and I are in. The town of Southprort is just my kind of quaint beach town. I love all of the little shops. It reminds me of my all time fave vacation…
