Liz, Planning

When checking in on Liz tonight, I found her surrounded by yarn. More than that, she had her head down writing things down in her notebook and constantly going back over to her phone.

Happy Feet

One of the many cool Christmas presents I got from Liz was this pair of knitted socks! I watched her make these steadily (and tried them on at various stages), and they fit great.

The Matching Accessories

On walking to the train today, I noticed that Liz was adorned in several items that she made herself. Her hat, her scarf, and her gloves were all made by her, and also matched perfectly (as they were all from the same yarn).

A Temporary Workspace

So far, I’ve had my computer set up in the back bedroom – and it’s been nice to have a place to go that isn’t either the bed or the dining room table. For Liz though, she hasn’t had her own space until now.

Liz, Studying Up and Kicking Back

With the long holiday weekend, Liz and I have been super busy on our own projects. We spent nearly all of Friday and Saturday hard at it – taking the occasional breaks for food. It’s been a lot of head down, music up moments…

Tools of the Trade

Liz has more or less taken over the dining room, and it’s unofficially her office. Her projects and materials are stored around the room and all over the dining room table. Today, I happened to be walking by the dining room, and glanced over at the ironing board. I had expected to see clothes or fabric on the ironing board,…

A Surprise in the Freezer

A few nights ago, I was in our kitchen. This is the walk-in pantry area, where we store a lot of our supplies… and where our fridge is located. I opened up the freezer door… … and this is what I found. I stared for a while, and tried to make sense of what was going on. Apparently, Liz has…

Liz Launches Her Blog!

Oh, snap! Look who just got her own website! Because she’s making/sewing/baking/knitting so many things, it made sense for Liz to have her own site. I set her up with a WordPress blog, and made modifications to the Paperpunch theme, by The Theme Foundry. She’s learned an awful lot in the past few weeks. Not only has she been getting…

Christmas Eve in Indianapolis

Liz and I left for Indianapolis late in the morning (a little later than we intended), but made decent time along I-65. While in the car, Liz was working on some hand-made presents: two knitted dinosaurs. These were gifts that she had started a few weeks ago, and was finishing up the legs and eyes on our trip. I snapped…

Making the EGOT Necklace (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony)

Gretchen and Rob invited us over to join some folks in watching the Mark Twain Prize. The latest recipient was Tina Fey, and so Liz and I decided to add to the 30 Rock theme by making some EGOT necklaces. The term EGOT is from 30 Rock, where Tracy Morgan’s character gets a ridiculously expensive necklace that represents his life’s…

Liz Makes an Ottoman

On Saturday, Liz had another class at The Needle Shop. She’s attended quite a few workshops there, and has been slowly learning how to make more and more. What’s really neat about the workshops here is that each class works on a specific object or item. Typically four hours in length, students walk out of the classroom with a finished…

Roman Blinds

On Sunday, Liz called me in to the kitchen. She had been drilling a bit, and I had thought she was setting up some blinds for the window. When I walked in, I discovered what Roman Blinds are. Here’s the window, with the blinds partly open. The fabric was actually purchased from Ikea. This is Liz’s favorite bird of the…
