New Things!

Okay, I've FINALLY started sewing again. Nothing finished yet mind you, but between Baby wanting me to sew him a robot, and my experiment at doggie portraiture, I think we're well on our way to finally mending the damage done by last year's horrible-terrible-no good-very bad run of luck. So without further ado:

This magazine came in the mail and got me to thinking about branching out a bit...

I particularly liked the idea of making a doggie, but the mutts of all my family members are of the curly haired variety, which I thought might be a bit too challenging for my first attempt.

Then lo and behold, this dog came into my life. And of course he has the most perfect face ever.

So I've started. And a start is better than a poke in the eye, wouldn't you say?
I am grateful for deciding to close the book on last year and begin a new chapter (FINALLY!). I'm grateful for time spent with family last week, and for choosing not to ignore someone who is amazingsuperwonderfulfantastic just because feeling that way about someone scares me. I am grateful for my amazing kiddos, and everything else that makes life pretty great. I AM happy.

Yeay, I have comments! Hmm... not sure what to clarify on the first one. Here's where I may want to admit that I'm totally in love with the dog who inspired the portrait I've been working on, an awesome Boston Terrier named Blue. And I'm so glad to see you again Galadriel, I really need to hop back by your blog and check in too!
