Wherever Have I Been?

So, March, huh?

I mean, I was well aware that I hadn’t posted to the blog in ages, but as I loaded my Ravelry profile the other day I spied the most recent blog posts and saw March sitting there at the tip top. Shameful!

I do have an excuse. Two of them, in fact!

1) Sir Finnegan Wilde. He has been keeping me incredibly busy with his fantastic baby antics. I won’t bore you with the details of my adoration for my little boy, but suffice to say his awesomeness requires a LOT of constant interaction and super-vigilance.


2) We’ve got fancy plans and pants to match. What are those plans? Well, I realize this will come as a shock to some, but after eight years of homesteading in the wilds of rural Oregon we are heading back to the Big City (aka Portland). We’re very excited!

Now, I think item #2 on the list deserves its own post, so that will come soon.

I’ll try to get a couple of posts up before we move Mid-December, and then my plan is to re-launch the blog anew in the new Year. It’ll be a place for me to chart our journey back to the city, our new adventures being urban farmers, all sorts of crafty goodness and of course sharing fibery Maisy Day treats.

So how have you been? :)


  1. Wow! Moving back to the city! But…what about the chickens!? :)

  3. Gaile, fret not, the ladies are coming with us. :) They’ll have a bit of a transition learning to live the city lifestyle, but our new place has a nice backyard where we can build them a cozy coop.

    Hi Aprill, and thank you! I’m really looking forward to getting back to posting more as we set up in our new place and have new adventures.

  4. Hello, I just stumbled across your blog whilst searching for self sufficiency ideas. We live in central Portugal with a small holding and have 2 small children. Sometimes the lure of moving back to the city really appeals (especially in the middle of winter!) so I wish you lots of luck for your new adventure.
