January update

Hello, all! I have been having a rough time with my fatigue, pain, and sadness. In November and December, I was able to crochet a lot of tree ornaments. As I stated before, these tree ornaments are for an upcoming yarn bomb. Also, in the past few months, I have been able to make art, and write a bit of poetry and such. I am happy to share some of my work with you all. Please don't forget to check out my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. I also accept crochet commissions. I hope you all are having a lovely winter!

November happenings!

Hello, dear readers! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy. I have been working on crocheting more tree ornaments. I crochet covers (aka, "cozies") for pre-made plastic bases I buy online. I am planning on hanging the ornaments somewhere in our yard at some point in December. Last year, I did a similar installation called Holiday Cheer 2020. In fact, I may incorporate the same tree ornaments I used last year, along with the new ones I am making. I have also been making some collages and writing a bunch of poetry. I will, of course, share some more poetry eventually. Ciao!

First Love (poem)

First Love


we view the bright afternoon sky together

in the barren winter field outside of town

darling shades of blue swirl in patterns novel and lovely

Happy Fall!

I hope this blog post finds you all doing well. I have been struggling with my pain and fatigue, as always. I injured my wrist last week and have not been able to crochet for a few days. What a bummer! On the plus side, I have been able to make a few collages and write a bit. I have been enjoying the cooler weather. I love to sleep with my window open. I hope you all are doing well!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I am having a rough day due to my pain, fatigue, and PTSD. I was, however, able to sit outside for a bit and make a collage. I have also been working on crocheting items for Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. If you would like to support me and my work, please consider buying something from Green Owl Crochet or commission me to crochet something fabulous for you or a loved one. Ciao!

Esteem (poem)

Esteem

hold yourself 

high and

if you need to

you can

declare war on the 

dragonflies and 

the pumpkins

but never declare 

yourself invalid

or unworthy

By Passion Alone (poem)

By Passion Alone


I am a writer 

by passion and 

by passion alone.


Give me money or

leave me unpaid. 


Recognize my name or

leave me living in anonymity.


I will move forward

with my craft

and ply my trade

as zealously as 

my want and need dictates.


Me with Angelina
