As I'm sure you've all noticed, things have been a little quiet around the blog lately as I've tried to sort a few things out. I've been sewing, but it's not tended to be the kind of sewing that's always welcome on a sewing blog.
It's . . . (gasp!) . . . craft sewing. And while a lot of the comments I've gotten have been very nice, there have been a few - deleted as soon as I was able to clear the red haze from my eyes and see the monitor again - which basically said they would rather stick knitting needles in their eyes than read about more craft sewing.
Don't let me stand in your way.
So I'm taking my craft sewing on the road, and moving it over to a blog dedicated to my new crafty sewing business, Useful & Beautiful (a riff on the William Morris quote, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful"). There are craft fairs afoot, and a handmade Etsy shop. If you're not totally repelled by craft sewing, or me selling my soul by attempting to do a little sewing for profit, please feel free to wander on over and see what my projects are there.
I'm not giving up on or closing down this blog. I'll still be sewing for me, and posting about it, and sharing pictures of the cats, the garden, the chickens or anything else that strikes my fancy. And if I get any more comments about knitting needles, I know where the delete button is, and I'm not afraid to use it.
