…Have I been?  I have gone through another burst of crap, too busy doing living stuff to do any creative stuff.  But there is light at the end of the tunnel (I hope).

My sister needed a computer; the one she brought for me to fix wasn’t worth the money to fix so I’m giving her the 11″ laptop I had recently bought for my sewing room and ordered myself another one from Ebay.  Before it got here I talked myself out of it and ordered another, more expensive one from the same vendor on Ebay.  When the first one arrived I never opened the box, just printed out the mailing label and dropped it at the post office.  So, that is 1 computer worked on not worth fixing and another I reloaded fresh for my sister.  Third computer went back to the vendor.  Fourth computer arrived and I have spent the better part of 2 days customizing it and reorganizing my filing system from the Alienware (which I put in my sewing room) and the new Envy in my office.  So that is 5 computers I’ve worked on.

Then yesterday someone hacked a website I manage so I’ve spent the better part of the last 48 hours on the phone with security people and reorganizing website and account details.  Cost about $200, too.  And SUCKED!

Before that I started making tote bags.IMG_5002 IMG_5004 IMG_5008I also did a turquoise webbing tote with a peacock on it but I’ve given it away.  I have approximate 17 more to make (5 on my work table and 12 more ordered online but not received).  I also bought rose-colored napped fabric to make envelope cushion covers for 2- 18″ throw pillows.  And I just got in fabric I ordered to make hammocks for bearded dragons.  I’ve also just committed to make some beds and sleeping envelopes for them.  And when I find the time I’m going to make me a summer purse.  I hate the one I have now (too dark) and I can’t see buying one when I have the fabric to do it myself (and I like my own better, too–they don’t fall apart and always have the exact number of pockets I require).

Prior to this I made these blankets for a friend:

It looks like I’ve done so much but it doesn’t feel like I have, so…back to the drawing board!
