Hello

Hello

It's been a busy summer for me. And a lazy one at the same time. Lots of changes. A longer story to tell another day. Today I want to share a few things, one long overdue. Awhile ago I helped Betz White celebrate her 10 year blogiversary with a free cupcake pattern to download and stitch. It's a really sweet pattern and cooler weather will mean more cupcakes, both baked and stitched. (My 10 year blogiversary is coming up in November!)

And then yesterday, Rachel at Handmade U posted an interview with me about "putting yourself out there." I talk about my experience with that challenge in my creative life and what I've learned. Just telling you that the interview exists and encouraging you to watch it makes me wiggle in my chair. But it's there, so why not. And I do think there is something to take away from that listen.

Through these warm weather months, I've been stitching. Finally finished my Into the Wild sampler, a tribute to my beautiful mom. You can get yours here.

This has been a quick summer. Are they all? It gets hot and we start to wish it away and then it's cooler and we wish for more days. The ones we have right now are the best. I'm getting my wool organized for hooking rugs again. I found a rug I started over 10 years ago and gave up on. It's so big! Inspiration seems to have settled in for a spell so I'm going to get back to it. I have most of the wool colors. I often use black for my backgrounds because it's easy to find black wool clothes to cut up and mix in when the stash runs low.

Can hardly believe that tomorrow it's September!
