Hello 2017

Happy New Year friends of Where’s*The*Yarn? and Sow’s Ear Studio.  With 2016 past and 2017 beginning, I think that 2017 will be a great year filled with new goals, dreams, and turning some of those dreams into reality.  With Rosemary doing painted furniture full time, getting her Etsy shop up and running, recovering from surgery, and looking forward to coming back to Sow’s Ear Studio.

Lauren has been busy as a beaver working on new projects, running the shop, and researching about more decorative crochet items, Lauren will be having some new, handmade items on her Etsy shop within the next couple of weeks.  See the rest of Sow’s Ear Studio come alive with Rosemary out and when Rosemary comes back from recovery.  See more items come to life with Where’sTheYarn?

Photo Of The Day: I-Phone Wallpaper Tropical Getaway

Not a fan of the winter, not a fan of the cold, considering my business is crochet. Crocheting is suppose to warm people up in the winter with scarves, blankets, fingerless gloves, and much more.

This weekend is suppose to be bitter temperature wise. Wanting warm weather in spite of the fact that Upstate New York is not warm year round, I’m working on some new bohemian things that are made for the cold and people who love winter and all it’s glory. I just completed a bohemian blanket for my bed at home and photos of this piece will be revealed this weekend.

I like looking at tropical themed pictures, dreaming of Key West, Florida, and wanting to eventually take a trip to Key West and possibly start a business during the winter. With looking at these photographs, the colors inspire me with my crocheting and polymer clay artwork. See more photos of my work and tropical I-phone photos soon.

Happy Birthday Mom!

2 tablespoons of instant hot cocoa.

International Delight Cold Stone Creamery, Sweet Cream.

*If you don’t have International Delight, half and half will do.

Pour your cup of coffee in your favorite coffee mug, add two tablespoons of hot cocoa, and add International Delight Sweet Cream.  Mix these ingredients together and enjoy your coffee treat.

Makes a great treat for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

Adirondack Log


I love the Bolton Landing and Lake George in the heart of the Adirondacks.  One of my favorite restaurants in the Adirondacks is The Log Jam Restaurant.  This is my all time favorite dessert from the restaurant.  This recipe is easy and requires no cooking.

2 Scoops Of Vanilla Ice Cream.

Hot Fudge On The Top Of The Vanilla Ice Cream.

Whip Cream On Top Of The Hot Fudge.

Cherry On Top.

On a dinner plate, add two cooked brownies, ice cream, hot fudge, whip cream, and cherry on top.  Enjoy anytime after dinner.

Photo Of The Day: I-Phone Wallpaper Beach Scene

Everyone says that winter 2016-2017 in Upstate New York hasn’t been all that bad with snow and messy weather.  Well I’m still not a fan of the cold weather.  Starting my car and letting my car sit for a few minutes to warm up, dressing in layers, and feeling like I want to hibernate in my home for six months.  The Prock family is not a fan of winter and all that comes with it.

For the last week it’s been bitter cold with a few flurries here and there.  The sun has been coming out a little here and there, but to me, it feels gloomy. Here’s yet a second tropical scene photo from an I-phone wallpaper app that I have on my phone.  In realty, I know it’s winter, in the back of my mind, I’d rather be in Key West, Florida.  The idea of not having to dress in layers and wearing a jacket is my kind of weather.  I picked this photograph because it’s filled with color, water, a beach, and a palm tree.  Anything but gloomy, cold weather.
