Crafty Cravings

Did you know it's been about five months since I've done ANY sewing?! How crazy is that...
In the midst of all the madness I've really missed it. It's been hard saying no to every request for an order, but I am glad I was strong. Frankly, I don't know how I could have possibly packed up the house, continued to cook and clean and iron and parent, deal with the stress of the visa-wait and then relocate the family if I hadn't hung up my sewing machine early.
I have some very loyal customer/fans/likers (not sure which term best suits) who've really stuck around in the gap. I'm grateful that they/you have and even more grateful that the blog is getting a good reading. This writing has become a necessary part of my day, and I probably haven't written a thing since high school. So that's nice.
Well, today I'm feeling nostalgic for poppets so I thought I'd just share some of my favourite pics in an attempt to fuel the creative fires.











There's a suitcase full of fabric waiting to come out to play, but I daren't peek inside until I can officially get on with some stitching and stuffing. 
Now, back to that 'blessed' Ikea website....
