Yup. This is blog post number five for 2014. (Henry likes counting in Spanish so he would say, cinco).
I could apologize for my absence, but I won't. This is a place I come to with things that have inspired me and stories that I want to share. And I have no regrets for how I've spent my time so far this year.
But how do I catch up to the current inspiration? Thankfully flickr and IG remind me.
I wove a scarf on my loom. I'm delighted that I found a good place for two of my favorite stash yarns and super duper glad that a good friend was willing to give this scarf a home.
I cut into my Katie Jump Rope fabric. I love the rectangles I've cut so far, but I'm stuck on background fabric to go with the collection. So this will have to sit until I'm good and ready to go again.
I gave up knitting one sweater. But selling the yarn and some hoarded fabric allowed me to buy...
...some Madelinetosh yarn to knit another sweater.
I had to rip that sweater, too. But when I love a yarn that much, I don't mind knitting it all over again.
We took a road trip with the boy...to Wisconsin...in February...with the added fun of a polar vortex. We had a great time on our trip, but I swear that we should meet up with my family in a warmer locale next time.
While in Green Bay, I helped my mom quilt her Farmer's Wife quilt. It was a huge job but definitely satisfying.
Lastly, I finished some ancient bee blocks. I feel like ancient is the primary adjective I use when describing bee blocks here. I think I need to keep up on my bee block calendar a wee bit more for the rest of 2014. Do you agree?
Whew! That was all January and February.
Stay tuned for my next update.
I'm totally serious. I will be back very soon.
