Blast From the Past: Gift For a Friend

A short time ago, in a blogosphere far, far away, a little red headed blogger got in WAY over her head with a self hosted blog and one day–POOF–it refused to publish or save any more posts.  Even her techno savvy friends and family members (hi, Dad!) couldn’t save her beloved blog.  Sadly, the girl (who loves to write, but is only minimally techno savvy, by the way) restarted her blog on WordPress (but not the self hosted kind).  But, hating to lose her previous 800+ posts that wouldn’t be seen, she came up with a brilliant idea (!) to institute a feature to bring back some of her older posts that she wanted to keep or thought were good.  Hence the new feature:  Blast From The Past!

So, if you have followed my blog in that other, sadder blogosphere, you have probably already seen this one.  But, you might like it even more now…  Hey, you never know!

So, from January 15th, 2013….

Edited to add:  With cooler weather beginning here in the Deep South, I thought this post was appropriate.  I need to make myself one of these scarves!

Scarf from Moda Bake Shop pattern

Every once in a while, I run across a pattern that I just have to make.  This pattern by Moda Bake Shop is one of them.  I simply fell in love with it’s patchwork charm and casual grace.

I made this one for my friend, Bev (who doesn’t blog, but I do show off her work here sometimes), who has a New Year’s Eve birthday.  I used most of a charm pack of Moda’s

Double Chocolat line by 3 Sisters and some dark, chocolate brown flannel for the backing.

She really seemed to like it and sent me this photo of her modeling it.

What patterns are really calling your name this year?

Till next time,
