Updated May, 2013:

In February, 2013, I was diagnosed with cancer – specifically KIT+ GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumors). Posting has become somewhat sporadic in recent months, but I’m still here! Thanks for all of your kind thoughts, and I’ll post more often as I’m feeling better.

365.132 GirlyHi! I’m Susan. I’ve written online in one place or another since 2004. I’ve had a personal journal, a blog, and various offshoots – an exercise blog, a craft blog, you name it. After trying to keep up with so many formats and formulas, I figured it was time to pull everything together under one umbrella. So here it is – Sweeter Lemon. This is where I’ll write about knitting, crafting, sewing, reading, eating, cooking, health, and basically whatever else tickles my fancy. I hope you enjoy it!

A bit more about me:

I live in Louisville, Kentucky with my husband Mr. Martini and our two cats, Ruby and Zelda. We moved here in 2008, and we’re still getting used to it, but so far we’re really enjoying our new city. Before that, Mr. M and I lived in Chicago for six years, and we still miss it sometimes, although we don’t those January mornings waiting for a train on an outdoor platform. I grew up in New England, and every October you’ll find me pining for fresh-picked New Hampshire apples.

In July 2010, I opened my own Etsy shop (Sweeter Lemon) and have loved every minute of being a shop owner. If you have Facebook, you can find my shop page here and my shop Twitter feed here.
