1.) My sewing room was infested with Senegalese weasels and I had to hire the Animal Planet Police to come and film an episode of "Catch and Care: Animal 911" before I could get back in there and put the pedal to the metal.
2.) Our dear friends Abby and Michael are having a baby and I have been working on a quilt done by hand for them.
3.) We moved from the city to the suburbs. Where's my Green Acre, bitches?
4.) I have a small child. Her height is in the 75th percentile, her weight in the 50th, and her head in the 95th. Which makes her a living bobble-head. Her high maintenance 'tude is in the 436th percentile, so she requires a lot of time.
So, mostly it was the quilt and the moving. But finally (!) I have pics to post of the quilt. It is, as I've posted before, my first quilt. It's made from re-purposed materials (sweatshirts and a sheet), and I made it without using a quilting hoop. Still can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing. But here it is. I like it very much and am scared to make another because I might not like it this much.
