One year

Can you believe it? I missed my own One Year Blogiversary! I thought it was today. I was sure it was today. Turns out I started this blog on January 4, 2009.

Oh well, happy belated blogiversary to me.

That's the second little milestone - the first was back in late December when I reached 200 posts, the next one will be my birthday at the end of this month.

I'm going to have a giveaway to celebrate. I think I may have mentioned that before. But not right now. I'm just too busy right now. I need a few days to get my... ahem... crap together and then I'll do it. The marking continues to pile up daily, my house is a disaster (and I'm usually a fairly tidy person), the Christmas decorations are still out and covering the dining room table, I am running low on clean undies... need I say more?

It's crazy here.

Since I've got nothing new to show you - I haven't had time to sew, knit, think, sleep - I'll leave you with a photo of a neck pillow I made for the OnlyChild. It was intended to be a Christmas present, but as I was making it Christmas Eve, I ran out of fibrefill and the question arose, "How badly do I want to finish this? Badly enough to go out in freezing cold weather to a crowded mall on the day before Christmas?"
.
The answer, of course, was, "Nope." The OnlyChild, after all, had enough presents for Christmas. Instead, this (along with some shampoo and a calendar) became her New Year's present. Genius!
.

I got the pattern at Sew4Home.

Well, nothing like everything happening at once. Happy Blogoversary, Happy 200 Posts, Happy Birthday, Rachel!
Hope it slows down enough for you to enjoy some of these markers in your life!
Meanwhile, don't mind me... I'm still catching up on the grading....
