Update!

So sorry guys, I’ve flaked out on this blog for a while.  I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life and blogging didn’t seem as important.  I have been working on some fun stuff lately.  I made a surprise gift for my bro and sister in law.  I can’t wait to give it to them when they come visit.  Then, I can share it with you.  (I’m not sure, but I think family might be the only people that read this). 🙂  I have another couple things in mind to make.

In the mean time, I adopted a dog.

Said dog has destroyed more than a few things, while still being cute and sweet.  I think I love her.

I have an awesome patio now, just in time for 1000 degree weather.  🙂  I’ll have to have a separate post to show the whole process.Image

I also had eye surgery, but I don’t think you want to see those pictures.  🙂

Well, here’s a before:

In the mean time, I’ve bought a fancy shmancy new serger and a used embroidery machine.

Think of a serger that threads itself, switched to rolled hem without any tools and does a cover stitch, and countless things I also don’t know how to do yet and you have my Baby Lock Evolution.  I made the gift for Caleb and Thalia pretty much completely with it.

The embroidery machine, which is all packed up and ready to go for its checkup (two weeks is too long, what will I do?) is the Brother Innovis 4000D.  I think I’m really going to like it.  Also, I got a LOT of thread for a great deal and made a new friend from Craigslist.  I have so much to learn!

I’m excited about things to come and what these new tools will mean for my little business.

I finally posted some ready to ship items of etsy, let me know if there’s anything you like!  The prices just might be negotiable.

I will be more present in the future.  🙂
