I am starting a new blog called Encouraged by Design. I plan on covering how-to knit and crochet new stitches, as well as, encouragement and hope. It's my desire to make your day brighter and help you find beauty in the ordinary.
I am also hoping to continue with the book reviews and giveaways. Who doesn't love a chance to win a free book?
Please bookmark the link above and check back often! I hope to see you all there!

Some days it's really hard to get much designing done! Who can resist such a sweet face? Ben usually wins when it comes to competing with my hook and yarn - mostly because he bites both if I don't put them down :-) Everyone should be blessed to have such an adorable crochet buddy!

It's been a very mild and busy winter! I stumbled upon these delightful little surprises this morning while out assessing any damage that might have happened with the fierce winds that we've had this week.
I love watching nature wake up after it's winter nap - although this one has been a very short one.
Not only are the crocus popping up, we have tulips my son bought us in Amsterdam coming up! I can't wait to share photos of those soon!
While the hook beckons, I'm also ready to get out and start planting. I love adding a few new plants every year. Maybe one day we will finally have an English garden to accompany our pond. (I wouldn't mind a bullfrog or 2 either ;-)
