Crochet Short Rows Scarf
Over the holidays I had a custom order for a warm scarf- something beautiful but not too frilly. I used it as an excuse to try out a gorgeous yarn - Universal  Shades in "Campfire".

In the mood for something new, I decided to try some "short rows".  Based on a
free pattern by a very talented crochet designer, Vashti Braha, this technique is used more often in knitting than crochet.
I am delighted with how it worked with the yarn's color changes.  I'm thinking of making a few more to put in my etsy shop.

Any suggestions on colors?

Mid-Century Solution to a Modern Problem
I saw it out of the corner of my eye...honey blonde, mid-century styling...the size looked right.  Could this be what  I was looking for?  Would this be the upgrade I needed for my etsy inventory storage?

Once the dresser was in its new home the dominos began to fall. As often happens to us, what started with a great deal at Goodwill ended with multiple trips to Ikea, leaving us exhausted and starving. 

We finally took the plunge and converted the guest bedroom into a full-fledged home office.  I'm no longer wedged into a corner behind a closet door.  I have a desk and a layout table to hold the architectural plans I use for my "day job" at Wave Engineering.  It will work great as a shipping station as well.   I'm thrilled!

I've already started filling the dresser up with new goodies which I'll share with you here.
