Well. Um... so, hi. (awkward pause) How are ya? (awkward pause)
You know when you haven't seen someone for a long time and then you're not sure where to start or how to begin and you're suddenly feeling very self-conscious and exposed?
Well. So there's that.
I went to visit my bff last week. It was a planned thing that kind of snuck up on me and then became a different sort of thing from the plan out of necessity and current life alterations... anyway, it was a fun, whirlwind of an apartment makeover on the cheap situation - so the good news is I've got some projects to share with you! The bad news is, I kind of up and left mid-series and you all were hanging out wondering where yarn it all! was, weren't you? (I can picture you all completely lost without my witty banter...) Oh, the other bad news is I gained a pound thanks to the crazy dining that is the Grand Luxe, but that's another story entirely. So.
Here's a quick catch-you-up type of post.
1. Remember that one series I was doing with googiemomma? Yes, well, expect some features from the linky party (finally) and a nice neat little wrap up with a bow.
Also, I do believe I may have to pick a new winner as I haven't heard from the first winner yet. If this is you:
I totally LOVE her new little monkey gnome!!! I too, have a GOOD yarn addiction & would love to make something for either my 6yr old son or one of my 3 grandbabies!!!
Email me your mailing address by tomorrow or I'll pick someone new. (That sounded all mean. Like a threat. I mean, PLEASE email me. Thank you!)
2. So there was this one time I auditioned for SYTYC. No, not THAT time. This time.
And my audition project won! And now everyone's expecting crazy awesome things from me that I won't deliver. Sorry. In any case, you can expect a tutorial for this project that includes lots of head-banging (this kind,
5. I've been published in an e-book! And what's more, it's free! You can download it completely free! I'm not kidding you here, it's free. Really, really free. I think I've made my point. It's a book about wreaths of all kinds and my Spring Yarn Wreath is there! You can find it here if you're interested.
6. I've got a terribly exciting project in the works that I am not at liberty to discuss for the moment, which seems all cryptic and hoity-toity. In actuality I'm just asking for your understanding if I seem a little hither and thither for a bit. Especially in May. mr's travel for work is such that he will be home for a grand total of one week in May (thank goodness it's our anniversary week!) and you will probably find me rocking slowly in a corner missing a good chunk of my hair rather than sitting serenely by my computer blogging. But we'll see.
Ok, now off to work on some wrap ups for you! Peace!
