Guys, I may have lost my sew-jo last year for various reasons, but it is back big time now. I have so much to say, but I’m gonna ease myself back into blogging with a few snapshots of what I’ve been doing.
Working on this and that:
I instagrammed a couple of videos while I was working on the above clamshells, so go look for those if you’re wondering how these go together.
Sent Diabolical Jane to Stitched in Color to be longarmed. Thrilled with the results!
These are Paleo!
What? your caveman ancestors didn’t have chocolate cupcakes? well someone’s did. The cookbook said so. Anyway, they’re delicious and if you are eating healthy but getting desperate for a treat, check out My Paleo Patisserie. Everything I’ve made from it has been good.
I washed dried and folded like a million yards of fabric. I had decided to freshen up my stash and there was no going back. Then I donated half of it to my local crafty thrift shop because I have too much. OK maybe a quarter donated. But there’s more to wash.
Parenting! Oh the parenting. Everyone’s back to homeschooling now and I am so glad. The school schedules were just not good for me.
Looking for a farm. Yes, I want to farm. really bad. But we have to come to terms with what we can afford and figure out where that’s going to be and it’s a really huge decision, so for now the talk is still all hypothetical.
Chicken farming: I may not have land yet, but you don’t need much space for chickens. We have been eating exclusively our own chicken for a couple of years, and added egg birds last fall. We love our chickens but they are definitely not pets; the kids are understanding where our food comes from and the animals that will become our food live a good life, and that means a lot to me.
So there’s a little snapshot of where I’ve been! Back soon!
