I have been gone for a while…and believe me I’ve missed you guys!  First thank you all so much for the continued love for this blog even in my absence.  Love you all   Second I need to show you all of my “new”s!  Ready?

First new, you know about.  My New Janome!janomeI (of course) am showing her off in her true habitat!  My messy sewing area in my dining room.  As you can see she’s been well used already.  And really…sorry about the mess in the background, but you see, I’m a realist…and this is my REAL sewing area.

Second, I have a new finish.finished plume schnibbleThis is the April schnibble “Tagalong” using Plume by Tula Pink for Moda.  I love this one because of all of the bright colors!

Third new…are some “new” projects at the casa.aqua chair

paint sampleI’m re-painting my old iron bistro set aqua…and I. LOVE. IT.  The next pic is of some paint samples I’m testing for my office/new sewing room.  Yeah, you heard me right…my plan is to kick out the old desktop computer that we NEVER use and start converting the room over to a sewing room for me!  YIPPEE!  The yellow is the existing really boring nasty flat builder grade paint.  The light splotch on the left was the color that I was so sure was right…until it was up on the wall.  The bigger blue blob is the one that is better, but maybe still a bit dark.  I think I need something in between.  Maybe I’ll take some white and mix it in with the darker one…hmmm…

And finally my last new is some news.  I have a new job, and I love it!  I have to work summers now, which will be a change, as I’ve had summers off for the last 4 years, but in exchange I’m making more money and I’m working with people that I love.  SO, the trade off is worth it, I think.

So…that’s about it for now.  I only completed one of my two April goals.  I finished the April schnibble.  I don’t think that I’m going to make goals this month.  Life is so busy…I’ll be sewing when I can.  Hope that your lives are fun and productive.  I’ll be reading
