Five Years Ago...
I soaked a quilt in sugar water in an attempt to coax the bees into landing on it. It didn't work.
I played with Crayolas and made Lobster Sue.
I'd started a spool pattern that I absolutely loved.... at least until I saw Bonnie Hunter's leaders and enders version. I don't know when I'll get all of those little 3 1/2" spools done, but I'll definitely enjoy the finished quilt more.
And I made a ton of little Halloween hats for the NICU.
Ten Years Ago...
I was knitting at the river and the boys almost startled a snake. I got lucky and it went under my knitting bag instead of straight inside. Thank goodness! These days I'd be able to deal with it, but back then I might've abandoned the whole thing.
I joined Ravelry.
I was still knitting lots of shawls and had room on the sewing room bed to block them. These days, it's buried under a mountain of fabric scraps.
I paper pieced for the first and last time. I've tried since then, but never with any success.
