Return from MIA....
Ok, so I've been MIA for a while. I have been sucked into a whirlwind called life. So much has happened, and there were bouts of anxiety. I have, however, succeeded in working myself through it all. Through it all I've had my crafting! Crafting has saved me - again!
I have been able to finally use the sewing machine that my loving husband brought for me during mother's day 2012.
I have been learning about beading techniques - so much fun and possibly a whole new addiction for me!
I even learned how to weave on frame loom!
Crochet has made a resurgence in my life! I've completed two wonderful shawls, and a shawlette - mentioned in a previous post - and have started a fourth!
Spinning has slowed a bit, while I knit, crochet, bead and sew.
This blog has been sadly neglected. I am hoping that I can change that and be a bit more consistent.
So as not to end this post without pictures, I will share some recently completed work, as well as some works in progress.
