The days blend together when you work from home.

Yeah, I know it's Wednesday. Been having many a frustrating internet problem these days. Anyway. . . onto the news!

It's been so long since I've been here. All the way back in November!?! What the!?!?

Okay, so let's go back a bit to Christmas. If you visit here with any regularity (you're one up on me! kidding.) you are aware of my obsession with new show displays come craft fair season, so of course I had to come up with something new for the holidays. It also had to fit in my new Cube (yea!) and needed to stay clear of the windows for a long drive to Portland, OR in crummy weather. So this is what I came up with:
Christmas Display, 2009
A giant wreath! Everything flat-packed down to fit in the car, yet looked remarkable when up on the table. I was by far the most festive seller at all my fairs. I just love the Christmas decorations!

Moving on from Christmas, my time has been spent working on writing and contributions. I wrote the text a papercraft craft book and kit. When I'm allowed to, I'll post more info and pictures and links and such. I've also been lucky enough to contribute to the books of 2 really fabulous friends. Here's a sneak peak at one of those projects:
Crewel Embroidery
Purdy! If I do say so myself.

Other than Christmas and books and such, I've been making logs. Lots and lots and lots of logs. Soooooooooo many logs. And more logs to make too. Sigh. Logs.

Oh! And I made another quilt!
Baby quilt
It's for my friend Kat who has a little one on the way. I love making crib quilts, they're so much easier to put together. I haven't really mastered quilting larger pieces yet. I've had a few successes but for the most part even the successful pieces were more frustrating than fun. I love the final product but have always wanted to abandon every large quilt I've ever made along the way. Baby quilts make me feel like the greatest quilter in the world!

Guess that's all for now, better get back to the logs. We'll talk soon.

Hearts and puppies,
