Block #93 for 365 Days Handmade

This is my first bird in just over a month. I posted a bit of a groveling post earlier so in this post, I will instead catch you up on my crazy world. And dedicate this to the very cool chica who pulled me out of my sewing slump.

I started a new, very big project at work and have been tied up with power points, politics and snake bites. I’m not being metaphorical, my dog actually got bit by a snake a few nights ago. It’s been a long week.

I got online tonight and logged into WordPress for the first time in a month and had a message from a fellow blogger at 365 Days Handmade. She was wondering where I was and I remember feeling the same way a few months ago when A Thousand Quilted Cranes disappeared for a bit.

I have missed this community and in particular, the blogger responsible for 365 Days Handmade. She is unbelievable cool, and made This Hat which told me all I need to know about her.

Thank you for checking in on me and all your good advice as I start my knitting journey. You Rock.

Hello There…

Sock #5 - I know it looks weird but it's for my husband's big 'ol feet. LOL

Sock #5 – I know it looks weird but it’s for my husband’s big ‘ol feet. LOL

A fellow blogger reminded me that it has been a very long time since my last post. Unfortunately, I didn’t see her message until 20 days after she sent it. So I feel like a complete and total heel. Life has been crazy, but that is no excuse. I felt bad the first time I missed a bird, but when you miss 10 in a row, the 11th is nothing. Life has gotten in the way or sewing and knitting and I miss it. I can’t even live in denial – there is electronic proof on my site that I haven’t made a post since April 27th. More than a month…

I walked into my sewing room last night, saw the mess and promptly walked right back out. Last time I was in there I tore it up looking for some fun buttons for Kristen. Never found them, but the mess remains.

So can only leave you with a sock i finished about a week ago. Sock #5. Thank you FC5 for turning me on to knitting and giving me a kick in the pants to get back on it.
