I’m Still Here

Well my life’s been getting in the way of things lately. The holidays make it a bit busy for me to make many blog posts or updates, and some other things have exploded which have kept me busy. But they’re not all bad–for instance, I bought my very first car over the holidays, and it feels wonderful not to have to drive something that belongs to someone else (which I’ve been doing for the past six years). Of course, owning a car means I have to pay to take care of it, but as any crafter will know, there is always a certain amount of pride that can be taken from doing things with your own two hands, for things that you own.

I have been making many things, too, and were I not stuck in bed with a horrible ear infection at the moment, I would be finishing up yet more projects (I’m in the process of making a patchwork quilt for the bed I’ll be getting my son soon. It will take a while, though!)

But I FINALLY managed to finish my curtains. It’s SO much more comfortable living in a house that doesn’t have five (albeit small) windows open for everyone to see into!

And I found a way to display my inchies and ATCs by using up an old Chinese restaurant calendar/menu:
