coming out of the doldrums

Hi all, I haven't been too present here lately, I think the house-selling was getting me down.
Well, I am back in the groove of things and I have a few fun projects in the works.
First, I designed a little girl's tank top.
The Chicory Tank
modeled here by my lovely Elder Hug-a-Bug
I will have the pattern written up and ready for sale soon, I am teaching a class on it at the Yarnery.
Also, not quite as exciting, my parents were over last night to help with a little kid-sitting while I had rehearsal and my Mom pointed out that I have an insane number of towels.
I took the hint, and I cut 5 of them up today to reassemble into a beach blanket.
I'll see if I can make some headway on this tonight after the kids go to bed.
Anything new and exciting on your crafty tables lately?

My house move is getting me down too, i think you're right to stay where you are.

I love the little top and look forward to seeing the beach blanket. What a good idea.

I am also taking my house off the market.

And my exciting craft news is that we just bought a pop up camper and I can't wait to pimp it out with crafty things.

New reader BTW.

That is so sweet, I love how the flower detail is on the back.

What an adorable tank! And I'm curious about your beach towel project.

Love the little tank top, and the beach towel/blanket idea. I've been working on my Folsy Flannel patchwork quilt, getting ready to sew the panels together. Next up would be some embroidered pillowcases to match; the floss has been calling me lately!
