I have been crazy busy and distracted lately, but I can hardly believe I have neglected this space for so long! I’m so sorry guys; I’ve missed you! (Sorry the photos aren’t the best quality, they’re from Instagram.)
This first half of May was spent cutting, cutting, cutting,
and sewing, sewing, sewing (thanks to gutenTAGS for the rush printing of more labels!!)to make things to sell at the Hand to Hand Market this past weekend,
which, as it happened, didn’t go very well. I don’t know what happened but the attendance was not what was expected by anyone. It was nice to hang out with Caitlin for a day though, we met a couple other really awesome vendors, Andy and Nicole, and I have very little more to do to get ready for the Krankies Craft Faire in July, so that’s pretty nice.
The week before the market I was fortunate enough to go to the beach with some friends for my birthday! I spent 4 days in Emerald Isle with a fun group of people and got to begin my 27th year relaxing with a good book and the ocean.
I went from the beach to Columbia South Carolina to see my friend Joe and my favorite band, mewithoutYou. The show was so good. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you might have seen something I posted afterwards that said, “I fell in love with a boy @mewithoutYou tonight. We danced next to each other & then he shook my hand & walked out of my life.” to which mewithoutYou responded “missed connections, find him!” Am I the post-to-missed-connections type? Why not! *blush*
So coming back to town, it was right back to work Monday morning and I have begun moving into my new place. I wish I could fast forward and just get in there and get settled but it’ll probably be a two week process and it will definitely be a sparsely decorated house for a while. But I’ve never lived alone and I’m really excited about it!I don’t have too much on the creative front right now. I have May’s LMP+QG project to get started on, another quilt I REALLY need to finish, and I’m anxious to finish the hand quilting on my Single Girl quilt which is taking forever.
Sorry again for my absence but thank you for sticking around! I’ll be back soon, I promise. xo
