Bra Fix for Better Side Coverage

I love these bras but, like a lot of bras, they do not sufficiently cover my side boob. Yes, I said boob because that is what I call the extra that escapes under my armpit. When I was young, I didn’t have this but as I aged, my little…er not so little…birdies drifted. I haveContinue reading “Bra Fix for Better Side Coverage”

Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves

Years ago, I crocheted a Harry Potter scarf for one of my grandsons. He wore it until it started falling apart. He’s 13 now and still asks me to make him another one but I cannot get into crocheting lately so I decided to make one out of fleece instead. I decided to make HarryContinue reading “Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves”
