An Eerie Vacation

Ahh, the sea
Originally uploaded by Corgipants
A week or so ago, we enjoyed a week off (Mike took a week and a half, the layabout!) and took a trip to Ohio! We stayed at the Quaker Square Inn, ate oatmeal every morning and slept in a silo! We cruised Lake Eerie, enjoyed a train ride in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and made a trip to Toys Time Forgot. I spent quite a bit of the car time knitting and crocheting my county fair projects.

Lately I have been making:
A fall outfit for my Jenny Doll to enter in the 'doll outfit' catagory
Thread crochet doily from a 1942 pattern book, in size 30 thread (TINY)
Knitted snowflake dishcloth that just didn't quite turn out like I wanted
Hoe cakes! Yum with maple syrup! (re-reading Little House on the Prairie books and getting strange cravings)
Crockpot Chocolate fudge cake
Sweet and Sour Faux Meatballs
Yo-yo quilt table runner that is shaping up nicely!

Stay tuned for a Blogoversary contest giveaway coming soon!


  1. Wow, you totally look great!

  2. Hope your trip was wonderful. I'd love to see some WIP pics of your fair projects!

  3. Swet and Sour Faux Meatballs sounds great. Recipe available anywhere?
