Tough times

Another prolonged absence from my blog, this time with good reason. I' m currently going through an incredibly difficult time in my life and my blogging has taken a back seat, I'm afraid. I have been surprisingly productive, however, and have much to blog about, but the motivation is lacking at the moment :( I'm hoping to find some inner reserve of blogging motivation soon - stay tuned for pics of some recent wips.

There's many other gorgeous items available at Gossamer Dreams this month also, of course - what a talented group of wahms!

:S Oops! With the beginning of spring, life seems to have become even more hectic than usual. I've had many things to blog about, but have been too busy doing them to blog about them LOL! I think a combination of J working a minimum of 50 hours a week and my rapidly growing crafty 'to do' pile (aka the mess on my sewing table) has combined to make my life absolutely crazy :P I've picked up old, forgotten projects, am finding pleasure in working in my sorely neglected vege and herb garden and have been preparing for a new obsession. Yes. A spinning wheel is coming to live with me....woot! We' ll just pretend that the many projects sitting neglected on my table aren't there, m'kay?

In super exciting family news, I went with my sister T to her ultrasound and she found out that she's having a little girl!! Yay, I get to make pink newbie nappies hehe. More projects....because you can never have too many WIPs...can you?

I have another project about to hit my de…
