There is a reason I have been so silent. Actually, there have been lots of reasons.
Sewing some awesome Christmas gifts--including an original design for a fleece lined wrap around apron for my dear sister (the other person who suffers from an icy butt all winter long!), a matching set of capes for my 4 year old nephew and his bear, and cute jammies for some nieces. An actual knitted project for my dad (well- I cheated and used the knitting loom, but it was still a lot of work, and it did turn out quite beautifully, if I do say so myself!)
Then we had the fun of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Then, the day of playing games the next day. Then we had New Years Eve. Then--we went to New York City.
No, I have never been before.
Yes, our trip was awesome.
No, I can't get any of the pictures off the dang camera (yes, again, I KNOW!!)
I will keep trying.
