And now I am back. Hopefully for good.

Brand-spanking-new computer over here! And I am loving it! After nearly three months without one it feels like a whole new world out here. Thank goodness I had my iPod to get me by, but it’s difficult at best to write a short note to someone, and impossible to blog.

One very good thing that came from the time without a larger distraction was how VERY much work I did getting an inventory of Dragons made. I was able to decide on a final pattern, get my production up to speed, and churn out quite a number. I was elated by the progress I made,and the sustainability of the work load.

In other news, my little baby is getting bigger! He is crawling about and climbing stairs, and has even taken a few steps by himself. He jabbers non-stop (he gets that from his mummy), and is perfectly content to play by himself most days. He recently figured out that edges are not just for charging over at full speed (thank the good Lord for self preservation instincts.). Perfect timing since he can get all the way up the stairs on his own…


As I had mentioned before, I spend a great deal of time at the end of last year making all most all of my Christmas presents. I definitely made more this time than I had ever done before, but I felt a lot of pressure on my time, and was pretty stressed out there for a while.

I am missing some of the pictures, but here are a few of the infinity scarves I made:

Once again, not a great photo. They were fun to make, and I used some different stitches than I had previously tried. All in all it was pretty fun!

My goal for next year is to be more prepared and finish things ahead of time so that I can enjoy the season and not be so tired. The lesson for me? Plan ahead.

    Or just buy them. I can’t handle the stress of trying to be creative. Admittedly, it limits the number of people I can give gifts to, but it also makes for a happier month. 😉 Love the dragons! Do you sell them or just cultivate a herd?

      Ha! Sell them! Although, I do enjoy the “herd” in my house right now 😉 And it is slightly tempting to just keep them all.
      I understand fewer, faster, less stressful. Honestly, my issue was one of lack of focus, and poor planning. I really do enjoy the process of finding things to make. Sick, I know 😉
