The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Comments Off Of Note

A very belated Happy New Year!

Has it really been a whole month since our last “real” post? For that, I dearly apologize.  

Since our last post, our house was ravaged by the flu. This was the face of it on Christmas–poor Miss N, trying so hard to enjoy the holiday to the fullest, but her body just wasn’t able to match her spirit.

While I am happy to report that the kids have been back to normal for some time now, my own recovery was slower.

Since our last post, we had snowfall in the double digits followed more recently by unprecedented warm weather. One week ago we had highs in the teens and then on Saturday, it was 64 degrees.   The temps are taking a dive again as I type, but I am grateful for the respite from the cold, however brief. It was that final push that I needed to feel OK and functioning again.

With renewed health, I have been having lots of fun with my new camera lens, can you tell?

Since our last post, I have made about a gazillion trips to the Post Office–thank you dear readers for that!  We’re glad that so many of you have been taking advantage of our New Year’s sale (PS There’s still a week left!).

Since our last post, there has been only minimal sewing/crafting by me. I got the knitting itch last month and quickly made up this infinity scarf for a sister in law–but that’s been it on the creative front.

But the boys have been busy–Pinewood Derby is just around the corner. 

Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree around here, I can assure you.

Oh, and for “The Ugly,” I present Exhibit A.  This piece may look like a presser foot, but I can assure you it is not. In fact, it used to be part of the inner workings of my sewing machine, near the bobbin casing.  It was sheared off last night in a fit and a start… I am fearing the worst.  Cross your fingers that the repair guy can work some magic here.

What have you been doing since our last post?  I hope you have been pursuing many successful projects. With more time and energy now, I am anxious to start making the rounds of blogland to see what you have all been up to!

Happy Sewing!
