i've been a little depressed and overwhelmed with life for the last little while. (it happens). i always know when i'm blue because i don't feel like making anything. and i don't want to blog. naturally then, the first sign that i'm on the up is that i get inspired and start itching to make things again slash wonder where my knitting basket is. you know what? i love that tumblr, because all i had to do was look at mine for a little bit and there you go- i'm absolutely dying to make a quilt. hopefully i'll feel all the way back to normal soon...and then i will make something like this:
plus, it will save me the trouble of trying to organize and find room for all my fabric at our new place that is sans craft room. i think i'd rather just unpack it and sew it up. yep, i think i'm feeling better...
ps- this is my favorite quilting book ever.
if there was ever a time for photographs it was this last weekend- cate turned 7(!), had a party, and we had a family bbq for the fourth including swimming, good food, fireworks, etc. i, of course, grabbed my camera only to discover when i tried to take a pic that the battery was dead. you must know how frustrated that made me. i hate being at "functions" without my camera in hand...i don't know what to do with myself when i see a scene that makes me happy. so instead i relaxed into a book- the guernsey literary and blah blah blah. have you read it? it is so good. in other news, i've seen eclipse twice and loved every second of it. what did you think? each one gets much less embarrassing, right?
