A Quick Update

Hello, everyone, and a Happy Easter this weekend to those who celebrate!

Since it has been ages (yet again) since I have posted, let me give you a quick rundown of what’s been up. Unfortunately, not much. 2017 ended on a high note, but so far 2018 seems to be a series of minor disappointments thus far.

  • Pottery – There has been none made. My wheel is collecting dust by the inch at this point. It makes me sad to think about.
  • Sewing – I have completed almost half a dozen quilts since my last posting, and actually sold a few. Yay! Also, more commissioned quilts coming in the near future.
  • Life in general 2017 – The high point was that we spent Christmas in Germany (possibly a post on this in more detail later). It was my first trip to Europe, and it was *wonderful*! People were kind, travel was smooth, and the food was outstanding. Our layover on the way there was in Paris, and I have never tasted a better croissant. I cannot wait for another trip! Hopefully, our next one (2019?) will be to Ireland, which has always been on my bucket list.
  • Life in general 2018 – Nothing exciting to report so far. Life goes on, work goes well (thank God!), and I am forever trying to find more time and more motivation to make things. We are gearing up to house hunt in the fall, so hopefully being in a house rather than an apartment will allow for more crafting room. I also have some ideas that have been percolating for a while for a Young Adult novel.

And so, that’s it, in a nutshell. Onward and upward! For those of you in a similar situation as I am, don’t give up! We can do this, right? Rejiggering things so that we have more time, and ample cash flow to pursue our passions can’t be *that* hard, can it? 😉

Stay safe, well, and happy!

Some of My Projects

Here are some photos of a few of my sewing projects from the past year. There are (many) more items that I either do not have photos of, or are no longer with me. This is just a sample. Quilts, baby dresses, bags, and more recently, neckties. I also apologize in advance, since most of these photos were just taken quickly with my cell phone, for my own reference. 🙂 Hope you like them!

Have a fantastic day!
