Goodbye 2012, I am ready to be done with you. This year has not been especially eventful, but it has been happy and peaceful. I feel satisfied that I took some risks and decided to be proactive with a lot of things in my life, and persist with the things I want to accomplish, even when I am tired or lose enthusiasm...I guess I developed more discipline. I usually make a few modest resolutions every year...keep house cleaner, be more organized, do yoga more, etc., but somehow the only thing I have been able to come up with this year is to finish my projects. I really love making and mending and being thrifty, so I want to polish up that corner of my life...I have 2 tubs of yarn and 2 tubs of fabric here at home. The fabric is mostly stash and the yarn is mostly leftover. I also want to spend more time on my etsy store, even if it is just for fun and sharing and expression...and providing a valuable service! I am thinking that we will begin our relocation process is about a week to two weeks. Our visa application is going in at the end of the week and then it is a matter of travel arrangements and getting our house packed up! So excited to be going to London! I have visions of jogging with the dogs in Hampstead Heath (we intend to live in Hampstead within walking distance of the Heath and Hampstead tube station). I cannot wait to get acquainted with some knitters and sewists over there as well. Who knows what the adventure will bring? Whatever it is, I feel ready. Cheers, and Happy New Year!!

Yes, I do have a lot of catching up to do. I'll try and contain my post losing anxiety and get all the sewing wrapped up here. I don't have a picture of everything I have sewn but let's see what I do have. Maybe I will snap some pics of what I have done after I get this all up.
I have a morbid fear of losing posts, so I gave the first one a test run and I am ready to continue. I also don't quite get the links function, not only is it not highlighting the links to click to, I cannot give them a new title. I will be so much more fun and informative if I can figure this out. Anyway, want to see some sewing?
Hello! Whether or not anyone missed me, I have been feeling the need to document some of my work. Our house is coming together and it is definitely a comfortable home. I have got to say, it is CRAZY hot outside here in Texas- I do NOT go out unless I absolutely have to, as I am not a hot weather person. We have had a nice and quiet summer, no big trips or anything. I have been happy as a clam in the sewing room! I will go back as far as I can and put up the things worthy of a picture. Believe it or not, there was a TINY bit of knitting:
