Finished Project

So, I actually finished it over a week ago. Finding time and a computer have been troublesome since we no longer have internet (or even a computer) at home. Should be easier now that the week of craziness is over. Seriously, week of craziness. Brendan and I both put in about a thirty hour week work- his all on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Mine all on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

So, without further ado is my new wallhanging. Created especially for my little crafty corner.

Wall Hanging Geese

The tutorial for the flying geese circular block can be found here. It was my first attempt at paper piecing and I quite enjoyed it.

Wall Hanging Selvedges

It was also my first time sewing with selvedges. Also very fun.

Wall Hanging in Action

It is 20 by 20 inches square and used every last bit of selvedge I had saved up. I am very very very very pleased with how it turned out and love the inspiration it provides hanging above my sewing machine.

Anna and Ellery were, of course, very helpful during the wall hanging photo shoot.

Ellery stood on the wallhanging whenever possible and Anna demanded I take pictures of her toes. Very, very helpful.

very cute. Looks very confusing to make though! I'm glad you have a place to live and a crafty corner!
Love the wall hanging! I've thought about paper piecing, and this may have just been the push...for next month.

Something A Little Different

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that for my birthday this week, I got a weaving loom of my very own. Specifically, a 15" Cricket Loom. There was some major happy dancing involved.


Feeling a little nervous. #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:06am PDT

Now what do I do with it? #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:41am PDT

WooHoo! Thank goodness for the many YouTube videos which got me here! A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 10:39am PDT
I spent all morning on my birthday watching YouTube instructional videos, putting it together, getting it warped, and starting my very first handwoven scarf using bits and pieces of yarn leftover from other projects.

Today I finished it.






Sure, it's got some issues. The edges are a bit wonky. The fringe went all fuzzy when I washed it. But, I love it. I love how thin and drap…

Ellery's Baptism and the First Day of School

Exciting times around our household in the past week. This Saturday, Ellery was baptized.


Almost time to go! #baptismday #eightisgreat A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 9:10am PDT






And after. It took two tries-her toe popped up. #baptismday #eightisgreat #familiesareforever A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 1:03pm PDT

She was so happy and excited. It was a great day.

And then, today, the kids finally started school! Hallelujah!


The local school district went back to school like two and a half weeks ago. We've all been anxiously waiting for their charter school to start.



First grade for this guy and an empty house for me. Every summer I let his hair grow wild so that I can enjoy his curls. I was all ready to give him his standard back to school haircut until we went to meet his teacher. She went into raptures over his curls. So, they stayed. We'll see how long they last now that he has to face a squirt bottle and a bru…

Christmas Gifts #1

Most of October, November and December were consumed by secret Christmas craft projects. It's such a relief to finally be able to blog and Instagram about them without worry. It's going to take a couple of blog posts to get through them all.

 First up, my woven projects. I made two scarves- one for my father-in-law's Christmas Eve birthday. Since he bought me my Cricket Loom for my birthday, it was only fitting I weave him something for his birthday.







The second was a super soft and hopefully super classy plaid scarf for my sister-in-law. It was really difficult to pry this one away from Ellery after our little photo shoot. The girl definitely has an appreciation for my handcrafts- especially the soft and cozy ones.
