This blog is now exclusively devoted to crafting in general, and the shop in particular! Pretty much all of my personal content has been moved to a new blog, one that is intended primarily to help keep our family and friends in the loop. (If you are interested in following the new blog, you will find it here.) This blog will continue to feature shop news, new listings, sales, giveaways, and all of my share-worthy crafting exploits.

What I've been doing instead of blogging:
This is the throw blanket that I've been working on for approximately the past million years. Or, that's the way it feels at the moment. It's really coming along nicely, though. I used blue variegated Lion Suede yarn (moonshadow, I think) for the whole thing. It's gorgeous, and it feels wonderful but man-oh-man is it ever a pain to crochet!! I don't believe I'll be taking on anymore large project with it. Anyway, I could have finished it last night, but I decided to do one more round of the pattern before I end it. So I only have 8 more rows and the same number of tassels and it will be DONE! I'm super excited, and might I say, rather pleased with myself. ^_^
And, of course, we have the never-ending cross-stitch for my niece. I still have some more bunnies to do at the toe of the stocking (to the left of the basket) but I am so close to being done, it's almost enough to make me giddy. I've gotten a lot done, even compared to the last time I posted a pic. Really, it's encouraging to see how far it's come. Then again, it's taken me more than a month to do it. I guess that so long as I get it done (and the stocking made) by the time I fly home just after Christmas, it's aaalllllll gooooood.
There's also all the other *stuff* that I don't have photos for...like, the mountain of presents that I've wrapped or the stack of Christmas cards I've written. I've been working on the nursery too, but I won;t be posting any photos of that until it starts looking decent. Right now, it's just a crib full of random baby stuff and a bunch of boxes on the floor. But at least you know you have something to look forward to, right? Anyway, all of this is my excuse for not blogging...and since I still have about a million things to do (finishing the above projects are just the beginning) I don't foresee a great deal of blogging in my future either. maybe as I finish things....
