Happy Happy New Year!


It is good to be home. Yesterday, the Great Studio Organization Project made large strides, and Pretty Soon, you will see photos of the finished product. I received a sewing machine for Christmas (thank you, Mama and Papa Recker!!!) and last night I practiced some sewing. There was a piece of fabric pinned to a curtain rod in my studio. I am hemming it and finishing the edges, so it looks a little more official. I decided this was a good thing to practice on, because if it doesn't work, I can always buy more cheap fabric (which is what this is) to try again. I am not a seamstress, and it is NOT my mother's fault. She tried very hard to teach me how to sew when I was younger, and I just didn't have the patience. I don't know what makes me think I have the patience now, ...optimism?? Wish me peaceful sewing moments, please.

Happy New Year, all you lovely readers of my blog. I am grateful to you, for reading, for commenting, for everything!!! I leave you with some delightful yellow desert blooms, which Matthias and I discovered not too far from home. Best wishes for all of you in this New Year!

Hi Karine!
Happy New Year! I am so glad you stopped by to say hello. It is a pleasure to meet you! It looks like we have alot in common. I recently got a sewing machine too, and I am trying to teach myself how to sew. It is fun when I have no idea what I am doing because I am thrilled with whatever comes out. I am impressed if it even looks a little bit like I hoped it would. :)
P.S. Your Etsy store is very cool. I love your art and have saved you to my favorites!
