Back on Track

Yay!  

The holiday cards are finally finished, stacked, and ready to be written on.  This week has not been the easiest, but I'm feeling better now, and I expect to be back at writing every day.

No, I have not purchased a new lamp.

Defeat

Writing today to admit defeat.  Writing for the blog everyday was just too much to do over the past few days.  I haven't even been sewing.  This week should be better.  There are quite a lot of plans in the works for holiday sewing that haven't even made it out of my head yet.  And my poor coat...she was supposed to be done over Thanksgiving break :(  Sigh.

 

Also, no music.

Gentleman's Wallet Part 2

Everything is ready to go.  I made it through the first few steps tonight, and this new version already looks better.  Thank goodness.

 

These are the left card slots and the right card slots.  I have not yet made the ID holder thingy that goes with the left card slots.  That will probably take up most of my time tomorrow night.

Hooded Pepernoot Coat Part 2

I made it through step 13.  This back bodice/yolk is awesome.  I really need to get better lighting.  The steps before this were for the front bodices and yolks.

Hooded Pepernoot Coat

Right about now I am feeling great about this Waffle Pattern.  I had those horrible new project jitters for weeks.  Now that they are mostly under control, I'm feeling like I can do this!

The 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge

I am joining The 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge started by Cheryl from Muppin.com.  The goal is to write a post each day in December.  Maybe I can make up for my lack of posts over the past few months.

 

Today is catch-up day.  Here's what's going on with all the stuff I started a post about but didn't follow up or the stuff I never posted about to begin with:

More Soon

I've gotten myself behind in a lot of things lately.  I'm currently working on some projects to sell at Chain Reaction Records.  Hopefully, I'll have a real post soon.  In the meantime, check out these awesome carpet bags:
