I haven’t been sharing a lot of crafty stuff, but I have been doing some! I’m working on a new crochet scarf pattern that I’m excited about. I also got some new yarn for Mother’s Day (two large Caron Cakes) and made a poncho from it. Remeber when I said that I like to make […]

Perfect Summer Popsicles


  Recently I got this YUMMY looking infographic for perfect summer popsicles from Readers.com. I’ll be honest, whether I make popsicles or buy them depends very much on the day. I do both and feel no qualms either way.   Sometimes it’s fun to make some popsicles, but sometimes making your own is just too […]

Just call me Sunbonnet Sue

Craft Projects

I’ve said when I introduced this issue that I LOVE a sunbonnet. Possibly as much as I love a granny square poncho. (Remember, I’ve also said I was born in the wrong decade.) I was really excited to complete this project. I was also excited because I have a habit of doing so many of […]

1950s Open Crochet Medallion

Craft Projects, Free Patterns

(Free Pattern Below!) The crochet motif in the June issue was interesting to me. The original photo didn’t show the entire piece as being crochet.

Weekly Workbasket- June 18

Weekly Workbasket

Hello! My last Weekly Workbasket was late, and probably made it clear that I was a bit frazzled. My plans for June both completely changed and really snuck up on me, so I went from feeling planned, prepped, and in control, to feeling over whelmed, unplanned, and lost. I’m feeling a lot better this week. […]

It’s June, 1952

Issue Overview

If you picked up this issue on the News Stand (I assume it was sold there) you may also have just bought hamburger meat at 53 cents a pound, and dropped off your $80 rent check. There is a pretty good chance your family owned a car (3 out of 5 did,) as well as […]
