time off

Big big sigh. I just returned from a quick weekend trip ( solo) up to my cabin. Meeting friends in the woods is the most therapeutic thing I have done in a while. Dark starry nights, long mornings on a lookout, laughing until my guts hurt. Thankful to my husband for taking the boys and the long drive up there with an old friend. back to real life, but with a restored spirit. what's next??

New Kneedles

My new knitting needle case. I needed to make this one fast, my mother in law gave me about a million knitting needles, all sorts and sizes, bells and the whistles! What great incentive for organization. I made this out of the remnants of some denim and Amy Butler fabric ( which I LOVE and can't get enough of. ) My favorite detail is the pocket shown on the picture above. I'm feeling the crafty juices beginning to flow again, yeah fall .

Big Bite

We're here already!?!?!
It's been a while since I posted anything ( sorry for the two people who read this). Vacation up north, taken without the memory card for the camera, back to school, life, work and on and on. So here we are. I'm finally feeling actually present, here, today, rite now. I feel as though I'm still trying to sort out yesterday for a while. Big Birthday last week left me with some FANTASTIC new fabric, a lovely meal and cake, fiddle lessons and fancy new pants. A great way to spend the last year of my twenties. So onto this year eh!
The girls came over last night and got me all revved up for this falls crafty projects:
my optimistic ( kids will nap at the same time every day) list.
Finish the big guys sweater
Make curtains out of a table cloth for the dining room, with some crewel work perhaps?
Pillows for the big and little guy
Log bolsters

This is a truly big bite.
