… yeah… it’s been a while. You know when you think you’ll do something, and then it’s been so long that it’s almost too embarrassing?
mhmmm. That’s where I’ve been. I can’t just blame covid, it looks like I’ve been neglecting this space since 2015? (I tried to find a quilt I made a long time ago, since gifted to my sister, and… it wasn’t here. so after searching and searching and scrolling, I found a part of it in 2015, came back here to look once I knew a date, and yeah… nothin’ but crickets.

Anyway… it’s almost December… and I’m not religious, but I do love me an advent (or any sort of countdown calendar full of goodies)… So, to get back in the swing of things, I’m thinking maybe a post a day of what I’ve been up to for the past…. 6? 7? years. And maybe a little of what I’m working on now… hopes and dreams for the future… Too many ellipses are pretty much guaranteed!

A good friend sent me this quote today, and I’ve been sitting with it all day….

Now that I’m sitting here, wondering who (other than me) might ever read this blog, and I’m thinking that I’m going to write to my ancestors. Hopefully I make them proud.

First UP: Tonight is the last night of DINOVEMBER and I still haven’t finished a final gift for the dinos to leave my kids, so I’m off to work on it!
