I have been telling myself for months (about 24 months) to get back here and check in...but, just as it is so easy to do, I said, "tomorrow". Well...
So, after two years and two-hundred and seventy six days...how are you?
Me, I'm doing good...workin' hard, livin' life and craftin' as much as I can! As far as family-life goes (human, feline and canine) we've had our ups and downs, hellos and tearful good-byes...but each day is a treat, and usually good for a few belly laughs.
I've seriously slowed down on the paper-crafting front. I still check in on my fav paper-crafters to see what's up...and what's new, but I haven't done much more than an occasional card and odd little mini-album.

I have gotten back into my sewing groove, though...big time!
|Faux Cathedral window Christmas Quilt|
Quilts, pouches, pillows, handbags, towels, totes, place mats...and baby shoes (for my friends first grand-daughter)!
|For Loralai's tiny toes|
|Ruffled Towels and Potholders|
...if it involves thread and needle, I'm in!
|French Knot Sheep Zippered Pouch|
I am buying clothing fabrics and patterns like I actually had confidence to make them.
|Please don't judge me...|
|...it's an addiction!|
I have as many started quilts...
|All labeled and ready to go...|
as I have finished...and enough fabric to comfortably, and warmly, cover Northern California in quilts!

Oh, and Spring-cleaning is slowly evolving into a bit of a re-decoration of our house! I am drunk with Pinterest decorating ideas and how-tos! Bring on the tiffany-blue, shabby-chic, retro, suburban-county, modern-urban, Ikea-hacked, palletted hand-made vintage upcycled decor! I have a glue-gun and paint brush...I can handle anything!
|middle column, third row...do we have a winner?|
So...check back, if you are still there, I'll be back with all my grand ideas!
