Yes, it’s been awhile but I offer no apologies! Life has been busy with a new puppy, too many jobs, Christmas and well… Life. To be honest it is only recently that I have even realized how much I missed sharing on my blog. I don’t have a lot of followers (hello to you select few special people!) so sometimes I wonder why I do this! I do it because I LOVE it! So I shall continue to share when the mood strikes!
So let’s jump right in with what’s new!
I haven’t done a lot of quilting lately, especially after my Christmas tree skirt debacle! It’s a story for another day but let me just say that it was an expensive epic fail that I am still trying to mentally recover from. I love quilting. It’s a challenge that I love, but when I screw up it deflates me so much that I just get stuck. My daughter has taken quilting in school and I said that no matter how tempting it would be to swear at your machine, she was not old enough to do so yet! Anyway, even though I have not quilted, it hasn’t stopped me from dreaming (and shopping) for new projects. But just because I have no quilts to show you of my own, doesn’t mean I am not going to brag about my daughters quilts! She is 13 and quilting was an option she could take this year. I think she really enjoyed it. Here are the two table runners she made!
A budding creative genius if I do say so myself!
I have been busy though, despite my lack of quilts. I have decided to learn a few new skills… Including needle felting. I am mostly just playing around but I have to say I love it.
Trying Something New!
I also tried some paper quilling! When I mentioned it to my mom she said “well there is a useless craft” and at the time I totally agreed with her, I just wanted to try it. And I have to say it’s a lot of fun. Again I am not too sure what to do with it but I had to try!
So there you have it! I’ve been very busy creating – leaving me no time to share! I am having fun doing some art journal stuff and trying some other fibre art type projects too. I will attempt o share when I produce something shareable!Here’s to a CREATIVE summer!
