Hi and Bye!

It's a been a bit quiet on the blog. Some of it by choice, and some of it due to sickness and travelling. We had a great time with the in-laws(when we weren't taking turns being sick with the stomach flu). We took a road trip to Western Washington to check out Kalaloch Lodge and the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park, with a detour to Seabrook to (what else?) check out model homes. All in all a wonderful, beautiful trip (if you don't count the puking, diarrhea and hacking coughs--but I digress). We're all doing much better now, thanks! And glad to be back with all the amenities of home.

And even though it seems like I just had a blogging break, I'm going to announce another one. I have such a love/hate relationship with my blog. I want to enjoy blogging, and sometimes it seems like a bit of a chore. I'll be back when I feel refreshed. In the meantime, I'll be hanging out at Flickr. Catch ya later!

In Your Face

A WIP that I'll be taking on a road trip soon. A blanket. Crochet. Very in-your-face pink. I like it.

FatQuarter Challenge--Take 3 and 4

Duuude. I did it!

I even managed to get these done when there was still a little bit of daylight left to take half-decent pictures. I still have a 2" x 3" rectangle left, but I think I'm going to save it for the center of log-cabin pillow cover.

I'm kind of a closet blogger, you know. Not too many people I know in real-life even know I sew or have a blog. This morning when I was dropping off my son at preschool, someone commented that I looked kind of tired. What was I supposed to say?--that I stayed up late 2 nights in a row sewing stuff for the fat quarter challenge? Yeah, right! Don't think she would have understood.

Fat Quarter Challenge--Take 2

What?? You don't hang your plastic bag dispenser from the curtain rod in your family room?

Thanks for your nice words on the tissue box cozy. I'll write up a tutorial when I get the chance. Sorry I can't check up on blogs today. Too busy sewing right now. Oh, and I double checked, the deadline's not until midnight TONIGHT! Come on now, there's still time. :)
