Some overdue linky love…

Hey friends! Long time, no blog, eh?

My day job has been keeping me very busy for past week or so and by the time I get home that last thing I want to do is get back on the computer, so obviously the blog has been taking a back burner lately.

I did have a few minutes spare time today, though, just to pop in and let you know I’m still alive! And the sewing has not stopped, either. I started cutting up a special quilt for my grandma for Christmas and I’m testing ideas for Christmas presents for the rest of the family. I also went to the NW Quilt, Craft, & Sewing Festival on Saturday with my mom and my friend Heather and brought home some very fun goodies, including sashiko items (that I could also use for quilting) and some super cute linen/cotton blend (you know how I like linen).

I hope to find some time this week to uploads pics and blog a bit, but for now, I’ll catch up on the favorite links of the past two weeks…

  • Beautiful antique rings and other jewelry at Erie Basin
  • Still really want to try knitting, especially socks, but finding it pretty intimidating.  These videos help make sense of the process.
  • Really!  I had no idea this was a French seam.  I love it.
  • Linea Paper Garland Strands make adorable (and do-able DIY) package bling {via elephantine}
  • Always on the quest for more Christmas gift ideas, here’s a whole list of scarf tutorials {via grosgrain}

I hope to update again soon!  Hope you’re all having a great Monday :)
