And so, this blog slipped. Well, that and some other personal things that put me in a frame of mind not suitable for posting. But I’m back and I’m ready to get back to the grind!
I don’t really have a lot to report right now, nothing really to share, but I am working on a few Christmas gifts. I can’t really give any details because this isn’t exactly a private blog, but suffice it to say that my fingers will be busy from now till the holidays trying to get everything finished.
Once the gifts are done, however, I have every intention of doing some things for me – like making some reusable shopping bags. It’s really quite embarrassing how many plastic bags we throw away every week, and while I’m not really an “environmental” type, I do like the idea of contributing less to landfills. Also, frankly, I’m well past the point of being amused by cheap plastic bags that fall apart even when properly loaded. I’m not saying it will happen, but I think shopping bags/totes would make nice Christmas gifts, particularly if they are filled with something like wine, soaps or chocolates. 😉
Something else I want to do is to make another pair of lounge pants for Chris – I got the first pair made but they are too big in the waist so I need to take them in a bit. Once that’s perfected, though, I really need to make him another pair. And then another. And perhaps one more. And then it will practically be summer time and I’ll have to make him some shorts. A seamstress’s work is never done, is it?
Anyway, I really don’t have a lot to share, but keep your eye on this page for new projects. I’ll do my best to be better at posting more often!
