How did I manage to go two weeks without updating.................and not even notice? lol
I guess I just haven't been very chatty lately. Or I've been busy.
Honestly, I haven't even been working on projects much either, though I did manage to finish this super simple and sweet Lizzie Kate freebie:
I used whatever colors hit my hand as I was flipping through my hand-dye box and added another red stripe on the bottom because I like red and thought it was underrepresented in the original. It will make a nice addition to my little stash of Americana pillows I did last year:
Besides that it's just been reading, reading, reading. I've gotten the bug again so it's go-go-go READ! I read two books this weekend at a furious pace: The Help and Mrs. Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children. That last one?
CA...REEP.....EEEEEE. But in a good way.
It's tagged as 'young adult' so it's not overly gross or anything but, like the Harry Potter books at the end of it's run or The Hunger Games, we're not talking about an easy, breezy kid's read either. The author uses creepy-deepy real vintage photos to illustrate the story which is a new twist I've never seen someone do before. Very neat! (I added a Good Reads widget to the sidebar if you want to 'hook up' over there. :))
And now I'm going to go try and catch up with all of y'alls blog posts but I have to admit I'm waving a tiny white flag in that regards because I've become a bit of a.........................skimmer........over the last couple weeks. I know - BAD ME. SKIMMER?? Quelle horreur! I do love reading blogs and leaving comments but sometimes it gets to be too much and then I take off a few days and come back to a Google Reader with 300-400 entries waiting for me and........*GULP* But I'm digging in this afternoon and catching up a bit because I totally adore what you guys have to post about. :)
