Sorry folks, I blanked out again.
A happy new year to you all. Here's to a good one, regular blog posts, spring coming in, uhm let's see, three months, sewing, knitting, and a good time in general.
I still owe one last Advent gift to Glitzerkeks, if you would write me your address.
Things are a bit weird for me at the moment, as I try to settle in, organize my new space, get a handle on how to start my new career. That's why I needed some time off again. I hope I'll be able to post regularly from now on.
While braving some cold weather and a heap of snow, feeling utterly lost after so many years in France (where it is a bit less cold, I just have to admit), I did some comfort sewing. The quilt cover above should be turned into a finished quilt for one of my best friend's 30th birthday, which was in October. And Christmas, which was, as you all know, in December. So all right, I did it again. The 'I already started your gift, and you'll get it later' thing. But it didn't matter so much, because my friend was sick at Christmas in any event. She didn't realize her gift wasn't ready.
How clever of me. I'm proud.
There has also been some organizing, or at least an attempt at it. It's very much 'make do and mend', as I'm trying not to spend more money than absolutely necessary. Starting a new career as a full time illustrator makes for a careful spending policy.
So back to organizing: I did my best. But the place looks worse now than before I started. It's this particular talent I have. Starting more than three projects at a time will do that to your workspace.
In the good news department, there may be some prettily re-done chairs very soon. Along with two quilts, no, make that three, a heap of pin-back buttons, new postcards for the shop, and a couple of other new things.
2010, here I come.
