no man left behind


yep, that would be me. for many and varied reasons. let me count the ways:

1. i did not pick a winner for my last toolin' around series yet.

2. i therefore did not mail out any of the previously won packages before we headed out of town for a long weekend.

3. indeed, i was in the air when the glorious joanne of stitch and witter interviewed me for her wonderful handmade style series. LOVE this series!!! i was crazy honored to be asked, had a blast doing it, and waited for the reveal like it was christmas.  mais, did i set up a timely thank-you-and-linky-dink post? non. have i responded to joanne's blush inducing introduction, to any of the awesome comments left there, to any of the comments left here for that matter? non. have i instead been silently and happily lurking the sewing web in the early morning hours before all other human beings arise? oui oui. actually that's like four reasons i'm a loser in this paragraph.

4. finally, and most horrifically, the glass of wine pictured above is mine. it was abandoned at our very late bedtime, accusatory "good morning" note left for me by Hollow Leg Dad (husband of Hot Mama). but in that, i actually win (read: kept the ability to wake up early, lurk your blogs, and hold my own with The Child(ren).

i'll be back in the mix soon, but for now if you'd like to know a little more about the insides of my brain, hop on over to stitch and witter! and have a glorious weekend... spring has well and truly arrived where we are, and today i plan on drinking EVERYTHING.

  1. Well, you can't always win at everything, apparently. I've been a loser recently, too. Welcome to the club.

    1. Nothing much to update with? Until now.
      I was making things like crazy, but due to school and all that it's all only half-finished at best. And awful long winter when it was ALWAYS cloudy and cold made it impossible to get nice photographs in our shady house and me not willing to go out in the cold and photograph my half-finished creations outdoors...
      But Spring has come, I actually finished something, and I think I'm going to update today or tomorrow. HA!
      Also, I have a new and much faster computer now. The slow and hitchy computer of yesterday was another of the many reasons...

  4. Happy spring! A lovely interview, too. Your Anna Sui print dress still sticks in my mind as being one extraordinary piece of Oona art. :)

  5. Thank goodness - I thought girl kitty might have had a re-lapse...so happy to hear all is well! You go on and enjoy yourself, and take time away from all this blogginess to revel in the real world at the beginning of spring (not that some of us here in the Great White North would know that, still being buried under fresh snow for the love of little green apples!!! *lol*)

    I shall keep a recovery martini chilled for y'all...

    Love,
