gone missing

let me just start with I HATE THAT PHRASE.  Someone has disappeared or is missing -- when it's "gone missing" it sounds like a choice the missing person has made.  I don't know .. it just feels like bad grammar to me. 

That being said, I've been negligent in my blogging and commenting / reading blogs. I have no excuse but laziness. Well, that's mostly for the reading/commenting side.  As for the lack of posts, I haven't been sewing much and I already posted pics from my vacation (didn't I?). 

And it's not that I'm not doing things.  After all, I went to see the play Wicked. (It was amazing and an interesting take on an old story.) and then I went to Napa last weekend.  I'm just not writing about them.

I need to do my September update and my linky .. I did start something new in September, a blanket that I'm knitting.  I think I may rip it out and start over because I wasn't really keeping track of where I was .. I really need to do that.  I made a few items too.  First I made a laptop case for my OD -- it was a little small.  If I were to do it over again, I would add an extra inch everywhere. 


I also made her an aviator cap for Halloween -- it didn't turn out great, but may be passable .. if she doesn't use it, I won't be upset at all. 



And then before going to Napa, I made a clutch.  I was testing out the pattern (which I adapted from this pattern) and was going to make it with the faux leather I had for the aviator cap.  I haven't made the faux leather one yet...


I need to get to work on two quilts.  One for a co-worker and the other for my DIL's brother.  That's what this is for. 


I plan to put a giraffe in the center and the blue around the outside is supposed to be gingham.

Anyway, I haven't gone missing, I'm just a slacker ..
