Just wanted to pop in and say hello. I hadn't meant to be away for so long but I really don't have much to show you in the way of craftiness, so here are some pretty pictures of new fabric. These have been a definite day brightener in an otherwise downright awful last week and a half.
I haven't been feeling too inspired or motivated lately but today I am finally feeling much better and hope all these new little gems and our belated Seattle sunshine will help to drag me out of my funk. It all began a couple of weeks ago and then we learned that we wouldn't be adding to our little family as soon as we had hoped:( Under usual circumstances I wouldn't share such personal information but I feel that this is such a common occurrence which has affected many of you and your families too. It seems people really like to sweep this one under the rug but I think it always helps to know you aren't alone and that we all face difficulties in our daily lives.
The icing on the cake was due to my dental negligence and culminated in full on three hour root canal. I had seen those Ambesol commercials where the actress equates her tooth pain with labor pains, and believe me I wanted to throw my shoe through the television screen at her, but I am here to tell you I have now lived to be able to see the comparison! Or at least feel what it's like to have someone jab a hot poker into your gums. So I guess the Vicoden induced haze I had been walking around in the last week
hasn't really helped my mood either.
Enough wound licking for today! I'm off the drugs and feeling great. And doesn't this new City Weekend from Moda just make you happy? I'm pretty sure this is going to be a big hit once it hits shops. I think a lot of quilters may be afraid it is too kid-oriented since it's designed by Liesl Gibson of Oliver & S, but I am in love with the vibrant colors and small scale designs I think will make lovely patchwork. They almost have a sort of Flea Market Fancy feel and I'm going to go ahead and predict these will someday create a big frenzy. I'll be saving these until inspiration for the right project strikes, and buying yardage when it's available in the fall.
And my other reason for happiness, Miss Lu. She is so on the run these days it's hard to catch a good shot of her, but I love this one of her at her Auntie's birthday party and that little silhouette shadow. And just like her mama, you can find her picking out her next beverage of choice at the ice bucket.
Happy Sunday everyone. And thanks for listening:)
