Yes, I made something recently.
No, you will not be seeing it as it is hideously ugly. You'll just have to take my word for it.
But in an attempt to be an eternal optimist, let's focus on those things that have been going well, shall we?
Like the fact that we picked over a hundred pounds of plums from our plum tree this year and we have been eating plums in every form for the past three weeks.
Fresh plums? Check.
Dehydrated plums? Check.
Plum ice cream? Check.
Plum applesauce? Check.
Plum cake? Not yet. But there's probably one in our not too distant future.
Or let's talk about how after a year of not quilting, I'm currently in the midst of sewing a postage stamp quilt...and loving it.
Or let's talk about how C finally fits into this little Oliver & S play suit that I made for O back in the day. And if you wouldn't mind, please pretend that you don't notice that the apples on the bottom are upside down... and I'll pretend that I didn't remind myself five times while cutting out the pattern to make sure that the apples were going in the right direction only to mess it up in the end. Ughh!
Or let's talk about how five years after buying the high heat spray paint to paint over our brass fireplace cover, we finally got around to finishing the project. The project literally took all of twenty minutes, which makes me wonder "why the hell didn't we do this earlier?"
Oh yeah - I have two kids that's why (and I'm lazy).
