I know, it has been unforgivably long since my last posting. Not only have I not written a blog post, I hadn’t read any of my blogs in Google Reader. I finally took the plunge a couple days ago and have been both immeasurably inspired and cheered up a little when noticing how little some other people have posted since summer began as well. Here’s to jumping back on the wagon! I might even try and give myself a post-once-a-day challenge. It’d help with the catch up!
I have a bit of exciting news on the blog front — this is my 300th post! That’s kind of crazy! It has taken me quite a while to get here, about three years I think (that’s a guess, I’m too lazy to check out my archives :). I wish I had enough readers or cool things to justify a giveaway or something but for now, I’ll just raise my cup of tea in congratulations. Maybe for my 400th I can be a bit more lavish.
As you can probably guess, not much has been going on in the crafting realm lately but that’s not to say I haven’t been busy! After our trip to California in May/June, we found a house to rent in Winston-Salem, North Carolina,
We are slowly but surely settling into the house, learning how to train dogs, and quickly making friends.
To ease back into sewing, I made a new ironing board cover earlier this week. That board needed it!Sorry for the terrible picture :(
I got the fabric at JoAnns and I love it; I might decorate our dining room with it as inspiration.
I’m hoping to paint the kitchen black and turquoise soon so I went with that coloration. I want to make some hot pads too but I’m being so indecisive about every aspect of them. They’re not rocket science, Kait, just get to it!
I have made very little progress on the hexagons in the last few weeks. I have 241 of them basted so far. I swapped some fabric with a friend for a little more variety which will be nice. As you can see, I have 18 sewn together and a couple strips of four and five hexagons that need to be added to.
