So until further notice....

Ok so this just sucks! I get ambitious enough to bring out the camera and take a photo of the stunning pillow I just finished, only to discover that my poor digital camera has been injured. How could this have happened I hear you ask? Yes you, there in the back , the shy one. Anywho. How else could anything be damaged in the Hovel? Yes you got it, the Wee Ones. (sigh) So now when I take a photo, this is the outcome;

The cushions on this wee bench look like they are plaid, but they are not, it's ticking. Do you like the wee bench? It was made yesterday. Re-purposed from a youth bed, that, yep you guessed it the Wee Ones broke, (sigh). I will be looking for another wooden youth bed this garage sale season so that I can make another such bench for another set of cushions we have. We recently decided to try to create more space in the living room by getting rid of our huge couch. A huge couch in a small, oddly shaped room is not conducive to having much space. We took the cushions from the couch and recovered them with this blue ticking. The brightly colored pillow is the one I just completed, with fabric I purchased from a fantastic store on Etsy, Skye Reve Fabrics. The other white pillows are going to get a colorful make over as well.

I will have to wait till next month to replace my camera. So until further notive you will either be subjected to funky photos or none at all.

Yes, yes I know. I bet you all thought I fell off the face of the earth. Nope, I'm still here. Just seem to be busy. Yet I can't for the life of me tell you what I've been busy doing. I'm not trying to be mysterious, I just can't seem to figure out where the time went.

So to update you on the things I can remember;

I'm still chasing the Wee Ones, (sigh) still.

We're still in our wee small apartment in bum %*@#^! nowhere. ( I have decided to give the small place a nickname - the Hovel. Meant in a kind way)

I still have the ever satisfying and thrilling job of cleaning in the mornings.

I am re-decorating the livingroom ( which is not an easy task)

I have temporarily set my knitting aside.

I have been embroidering.

Ummm I think that's it.

I do promise to come back really soon with some photos of some of the things I've been working on. Maybe tomorrow I'll break out the ol' digital camera and snap some shots.
