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 ..
