Wow, long time, eh?

Kinda looks like I forgot about this blog. I didn't really forget, but throughout December and the first part of January I was working on holiday crafts/gifts that I couldn't post about without giving away the farm, so to speak. I'm having trouble keeping up with my Livejournal flist and posting there, let alone anywhere else. I barely ever update my status on facebook, too. So, I'm rethinking this blog. maybe I need to go back to just posting my crafts on LJ with public posts there, I just don't know.

Have I been crafting? Yup, here and there. I made socks for a xmas gift. I stencilled a design on a couple of tshirts for my daughter. I knit a hat for my husband. I've crocheted a 3"x33" strip (and knit one too - my first cable!) to send to an online friend who's going to crochet all the strips together into a baby blanket for charity. I have been sorting and organizing in my craft room, in an attempt to get ALL of my crafting supplies, including yarn, into that room. I have also set a goal to master using my serger this year, so I have been experimenting with that and learning how to do different things.

Today on my lunch break I went home and started piecing my very first log cabin quilt square to send to my friend Jen ( for her "block drive" for Linus Connection. I looke up instructions online, and decided to wing it. So far I have a 7.5"x7.5" block, so I just need 4 more rectangles to get a 12.5" square to pop in the mail.  I'll take a pic before mailing it off.

So I'm here, I'm still slowly but surely making stuff, I've just been kinda quiet.


  1. Ah, I love that you're making a log cabin! Winging it is why I chose that block, because you don't really need a pattern. :)

    Too many blogs, too little time...

    Maybe you could post your crafties on LJ and then double post them here so you can have them in a more public place?

  2. It was so easy, I finished it that evening! I enjoyed it so much I started another one. But unfortunately my math was off and I ended up with an 11.5" square, so I'm using 3/4" strips to get it up to 12.5" square.

    I actually forgot about this blog for a while. I'll figure something out. Until recently my craftiness has been, lacking, but it's really picked up in 2010, so maybe I'll have more to post. I don't mind posting here and crossposting to LJ as a public entry, especially if I haven't posted to LJ for a few days.
