I'm not sure if anyone even takes a look at my humble little blog any more. It's been slightly neglected as of late. Sometimes blogging overwhelms me. I LOVE looking at peoples blogs, I LOVE getting ideas from others blogs, there are some blogging ladies that I hold on a serious pedestal. I just don't think I've ever been 'that' blog for anyone else. Oh well, it's almost the beginning of a new year, and I have MANY projects on the horizon. (Which is part of my problem. There is so much I want to do, and so much I have done lately - that I don't often enough slow down to document the process.) I'm attempting to do better. Maybe I can inspire one or two of you!
As mentioned, I've been a busy little bee in the last few months. There have been multiple 'custom name quilts' a few baby blankets for friends, a whole herd of elephant softies (pictures coming soon!), and a slew of other holiday gifts. I managed to get a bunch of them out the door without taking pictures (bummer), but others I can show!
My neighbor, dear friend, and AWESOME photographer (check out her blog/website here), asked me to make some Hanukkah shirts for her four cuties to wear on the first day of Hanukkah this year. Other than giving me the shirts to use, she pretty much told me to use my own imagination and 'go for it'! It was a bit of a challenge, because before I knew Stacy and her family I didn't know the first thing about Hanukkah, but I've been able to learn over the past few years and came up with some totally adorable tops for her totally adorable tots! (Sorry for the cheesy words...the real me is coming out here!)Kind of fun eh? What is most important is that she loved them and her KIDS really loved them! Thanks for the challenge Stacy! (And thanks for the photo, because this is one project that I forgot to take pictures of before they left the door!)
Happy New Years Eve! I hope 2011 has been great, and I hope that 2012 is even better!
