Yikes! Time has flown, and it’s almost embarrassing how much I’ve neglected this poor blog! Thanks to Teena In Toronto I was reminded (a few days ago) of my four-year blog anniversary! I can’t believe I’ve been here for so long. Inconsistent at times, but still here! Next year, I’ll have to remember and celebrate more properly!
Because I love to take pictures, and saw this cool shot of a spider web the other morning, I wanted to add it here –
- kind of symbolic, too --- I could say that cobwebs are gathering dust in the corners of my blog, but instead I will imagine that they are collecting sparkly dew and inspiration instead!
I thought it was funny when Tina left me a comment at an Artful Thursday post – about “… not having mastered zippers…” … as if I have! Ha! I just keep trying. And trying. Many of my projects end up extra creative because I try so many different crafts but don’t master any of them, and often a unique embellishment shows up just to cover my mistakes! Like Jane, at that same post, commented about the lack of pleats. Jane is a prolific and talented handbag maker, so when she comments about one of mine, I listen! The pattern I used was a beautiful one, but not only did I not have enough fabric to pleat it up, it was too heavy for me to feel comfortable doing so, even if I had more yardage. That all led to a bag slightly different than the pattern & I was happy with it.
Some things that are keeping me busy… Crochet Today’s, May/June 2010 pattern for Lace & Pearls Necklace – done for my oldest girl in red, as requested. Thinking about the white beads, but haven’t attached them yet… I’m not sure I like the white:
Mixing pounds and pounds of purple and white Sixlets candies to create favor bags for a party:
I’m looking forward to a busy summer with my girls & will be blogging more regularly. What are you up to, my blog-reading friends?
