I know, I know! I have been miserably absent for the entire summer. There's probably no one left to read this blog . . . I'm sad for that, but I have been creating, working, and doing all summer. I cannot keep up with blogging, web site building, creating for my site and Etsy, and magazine projects - it's just too much (I always try to wear too many hats - I'm a classic over-achiever - what more can I say in my defense?)
So, what the heck have I been doing - you want to know?
I re-designed JoEllen Dismukes web site at http://www.laceyjaneprims.com
I am almost done with a re-design of my rug hooking web site at http://www.folkandfiber.com (the old one is still there, but watch for the pretty, new, updated version to appear online very soon!)
. . . that was really fun and since my work table is still filled with pieces of vintage jewelry parts, I will be creating more of those as soon as I get my web site re-design finished up.
http://www.spoolmag.com) The editor, De, contacted me and asked if I would like to be featured - "hell, yes!" I love to have the opportunity to spread the word about rug hooking to new folks. Thanks to De and SpoolMag for that chance!
Etsy shop - lots of very cool, old, textile print blocks. It's my personal collection - but you know what Steven Wright used to say . . . "You can't have everything -- where would you put it?"-- that's my problem and so this was one collection that I didn't mind letting go of . . . here is just one of them - pretty cool, huh? And they can still be used for ink printing and also to impress the image into clays.
Fall Hook-a-Month project for my rug hookers. Kits are still available if you are interested . . .
So, if you are reading this, Thank You! I am afraid I have lost you all with my absence. I promise to try to be more present in the future. Check out all the links and let me know what you think. And tell me about your summer - remember those back-to-school essays? "What I did on my summer vacation." Geez, I hated writing those! Mostly because we never took vacations and making it up got so boring! But do tell us what you did on yours. I will pick my favorite and reward you with a little something from Vintage on the Ridge Etsy shop - how's that?
I'll be back soon with more news and a little life . . . until then, stay safe, remember our troops and Never Forget 9/11!!
