Whewwwwww Guys! It has been a crazy ride around here!!! Project Run and Play just finished up and I came in second place! I cannot believe it, especially with how small my blog is; I have few but mighty followers (well few compared to big blogs!) and I offer a hearty congratulations to Max on her win! I am so thankful for all the sweet comments I have received, and I am going to try to go back and respond, but if I don’t have the time, just know I read every one, and you were all a fantastic support system!
So You Think You’re Crafty is still going on strong, in fact I haven’t linked up to this week yet even though it has already started!!! This week’s theme is Elegant, and I am pretty excited about what I made, so please hop on over and vote for your favorite! I was the Necklace last week, did you know it was me?
I was really happy with how it turned out!
I am working like crazy now to finish my next project with RIT dye as the theme, so we will see if I stay this week to show it next week!
In the last couple of weeks I have had my 33rd birthday (which I sort of ignored because I was sewing like crazy) and then Valentine’s Day (which I sort of ignored because I was sewing like crazy) and then the kids got really sick, and I spent a weekend cuddling and kissing them better (they were still out of school yesterday.) AND today is Paul’s birthday, which I am NOT going to ignore. 🙂 The only request he made was another plaid wool vest like the one I made him 2 years ago, (since he wears it all the time) and with all the crazy I have had going on, I finally managed to finish it, and sew the buttons on last night.
I have some more wool to make him another one, since he wears them so much, I am just trying to get done with SYTYC first!
I would like to think I will get less busy as soon as the competitions are done, but instead I have just spent my time thinking about all the stuff I need to get done around here! I want to make pillows for my living room couch and chairs, I have 2 quilts for Isaac (his viking one, and the one for his bed) Isaac’s bed skirt, I need to organize my craft space better (I totally trashed it during the competitions) I have a mile long list, that I’m hoping to get done, but I am most excited about my sister coming to visit me in March, so we’ll see how much gets done before then!
Anyway, that’s the update! Thanks again for all the votes you guys!!!
