and I'm back!

Gosh, it's been a crazy month and a half. I didn't think I'd be gone that long, but a lot of life has happened. Let's see: we moved across town (bye bye beautiful porch for all that sunny picture taking), suffered some seriously bad machine mojo (computer, sewing machine, scooter), and Billy started a nursing job (woohoo!). Things were just starting to settle back down... I even was a little crafty. First a sock monkey for Craft Hope...

...and then some quilt blocks for Common Threads...

.... and then we almost ran over a puppy on the way to our friend's house. And, because fate is cruel, she looks exactly like Baby! No tags, no microchip, and no calls from her previous owners despite the fact that she's an utter sweetheart. We've named her Violet for now, but the jury's still out as to whether Baby can handle a younger, spunkier, fartier sybling in the midst of so many other changes. Pheww... puppies are a lot of work! Hopefully, I'll get to use the craft room - oh, yes, the room of crafts! - soon. I'm thinking Violet may have crafty tendencies....


  1. Oh my goodness, fate is miraculous! I think Violet is adorable! Give dear Baby some time... I once had an older dog and introduced a puppy to her... took weeks for her to warm up to the pup, but afterwards they became inseparable companions and the very best of friends.

  2. Oh violet was made for you and baby! Wonderful post. We have missed your creative action.

  3. Hey there I missed you! Funny how fate and pets go hand in hand. Violet totally was selected for you. I currently have an entire litter of kittens that the jury is still out on, but hopefully they will all find lovely homes in the not too distant future. Have fun settling in at your new space, it can be a bear, but take you time and everything will find it's place.


  4. Thanks so much for the positive thoughts and encouragement regarding the puppy. No more deliberation needed... Miss Violet is here to stay!
