About Me

Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

The Monster Infinity Scarf

I'm home from work today with Bunny because she's sick. I took the opportunity to finish up that 8 scarf that I typed about the other day. Folks, I am pleased as punch! Seriously, the only way that I'd be happier about this scarf was if the owner of Spool chased me down South Street with it gift wrapped because he just doesn't feel right about depriving the world of our perfect scarf/woman union any longer. (It COULD totally happen). I'm wearing it with my million dollar fancy jeans THIS weekend when we go out to see Jay's old band play.





  1. hello, gorgeous! that is awesome!

    i'm sending you dough to make ME one...

  2. OMG, Laura! I didn't call you! I'm so sorry. As soon as I was done with the Newsletter I ran out to the pharmacy and then came home to finish this and forgot!

    Also, you could totally make this yourself. I didn't even use my sewing machine. I did it all by hand and it was EASY.

  3. Nice, that and you look amazing!

  4. will you scan the directions for me? i'll try it, although my needle & thread skills are pretty sad.

    and yes! that is LUV.

  5. Laura, I'll email the link to you. When you buy your fabric, make sure that one of them is velveteen and one is cotton. It gives it a nice weight.

    If you wanted this exact scarf I could just go to spool and pick everything up and make it for you. I might use my sewing machine for yours though. On a machine it would only take a few minutes to make (like, less than 10) and would endure more. All that this requires is sewing in a straight line.

  6. I printed out the directions for this after reading your previous post. So lovely to see how yours turned out.

    You've actually inspored me to get my sewing space put together. YAY!

  7. Hooray!!!!! Everyone should have one. I can't tell you how much I love mine. I can't wait to see the fabrics that you choose!!!!!!!!

  8. It came out fantastic! I love the fabric pattern and colors!

  9. i want to make one. i bet i can find some stuff laying around. the wheels are turning.....

  10. Thanks Erika, I do too! I'm so pleased. I can't wait to wear it out.

    Nikkol, I am sure that you have enough fabric laying around. This will take only a few minutes!

    On the Anna Maria Horner blog I saw that she gives some pretty simple instructions for making a bohemian quilt and I think that I might make it my next project. Exciting!!!!!!
