Move along, nothing crafty to see here..

Somebody hasn't had the energy to do much crafting of any kind lately, so I really don't have anything new to show you. Apparently somebody has been crazy lazy since our Summer vacation started. I'm hoping that somebody will get over it soon, I mean, for how long can you sit around doing nothing? Hopefully not for long. I did, however, crochet three hexagons for my blanket today, so now I have a total of twelve of them. Whee! (Umm, not.)

I also did start working on a jacket for myself, I have the front and back pieces sewn together, including the pockets. I spent the longest time trying to figure out exactly how the pockets were supposed to be sewn, and just couldn't wrap my head around it. Luckily there were some wonderfully helpful people over on Raverly who were kind enough to help me out. :) So that part's done. Next I need to sew up the sleeves and the hood, and start working on the lining. I'm hoping I'll have the jacket done by, say, August. :)

Oh, I do have a little announcement too. No, I'm still not pregnant. :P It just so happens that we just bought a house. :O So if you don't hear from me for a while, it might just be because I've drowned in all the junk that we need to pack up. I'm dreading having to pack all the crap we've accumulated over the years, good grief. We haven't exactly been planning on moving, it just kinda happened. The husband saw a kinda nice house in the paper on Sunday, we went to see it on Tuesday, thought about it for a couple days and called the realtor on Thursday. Went to see the house again on Sunday, and made a bid on it. The owners came back with a new bid (sorry, I don't know all the terms..), so we made a new bid, which was accepted. :) So now we have to try to sell our own house, so that we can actually pay for the house that we bought and can move in. I'm so excited! The realtor came to see our house on Thursday, and told us that it shouldn't be any kind of problem getting this house sold. Yay! So that's my little bit of news for you. :)

And so that I don't have to make this post without any pictures at all, I'll show you a couple photos I took out in the yard yesterday. :)

Ps. Because of our upcoming move, I've reduced the prices on all items in my shop, even the shipping costs have been reduced. ;)


  1. Congratulations on the new house!!! How exciting! I hope the move isn't too bad, I know how stressful it is.

    Pretty flowers! You'll feel like making things again soon, sometimes we just need a break :)

  2. Alexandra - thanks, moving *can* be very stressful, I'm going to try to take this move as unstressfully as possible. :) Hah, like that's going to happen, with three kids running around!

    Just about the only thing I'm going to miss about living here, is the flowers. I *love* my peonies! But, luckily new flowers can be bought in the flower shop, so I can get new peonies for our new yard. Which, btw, is ten times smaller than this yard. Wahoo, I'm so happy about getting rid of this *huge* yard!

  3. N’ayant pu, malgré mes démarches en ce sens, faire valoir mes droits en justice - j’ai en effet contacté des responsables, des institutions et personne n’a pour l’instant voulu m’apporter son soutien, pourtant nécessaire. Cela a eu toutefois le mérite de faire passer un petit peu mon témoignage - j’ai donc décidé de faire un scandale, le plus énorme possible et c’est pourquoi je fais circuler en masse, où je le peux, dès que je le peux, l’adresse de deux blogs que, pour l’instant, j’ai pu publier à la suite de ces démarches infructueuses, dans l’espoir qu’à force de tapage, cela suscite suffisamment d’interrogations de la part des gens pour que je puisse enfin voir les faits que je relate au moins examinés par la justice et être entendue. C’est tout ce que je demande.

  4. You're not the only lazy girl around :)

    I haven't had the energy to blog in a long time, but maybe, just maybe I'll post something later today :)

  5. Artesanity - well, I'm in good company then. ;)

  6. I love the swirly skirt!
    And of course your Tiny Person looks adorable ( how pathetic is it that I share hairstyle with your Tiny One! On her- adorable. On me... how many candles were there in my cake, then..? )
    And triple weeeee! on moving houses! New beginnings, then. All good news.

  7. WeirdRockStar - I thought you might like the twirly skirt. :) And the hairstyle is a timeless one, suits all girls, no matter what their age is. I'm trying to grow my hair into something similar too, except I don't want such a heavy fringe.

    And yes, a big whee on moving! We actually had a first bid on our house yesterday, an even bigger WHEE for that. :)

  8. A new home. How lovely. I hope it all goes smoothly for you. I look forward to reading about it.

  9. Where the nodding violets grow - I hope to tell you all about the new house, we'll see when that happens. :)
