For the past few months (let me count...1,2,3...um, 7 months), I have been into craft hibernation. Making boxes and adapting to our new condo took a lot of energy but what really killed my artistic mojo was getting a new job that turned into a total disaster. As much as I don't like to admit it, my...cough, burnout, cough...actually made me put my sewing machine, patterns and Japanese fabric back in the closet. But now things are getting better and and I decided to come back to the blogosphere.
It has been so long that I decided to reintroduce myself by doing a little 2009 year in review.
My wonderful husband got me a new camera (Canon Rebel XSi) and I started another 365 photo challenge on Flickr.
I used double pointed needles for the first time and successfully made a pair of Toasty from A friend to knit with!
Dan and I did a little impulse purchase! We got our very first condo in an old candy factory. So sweet...ah ah ah, you get it...candy, sweet...ah ah ah!!!
Adapted a Japanese pattern with my sewing teacher and made a dress using my favorite fabric ever. However, I had to re-stitch the entire dress as soon as I finished it because the tension on the industrial sewing machine was too loose. Not fun!
Got a little spring fever! Biked around town and took many pictures of beautiful bicycles.
Taking long walks, making boxes and slowly saying goodbye to our old neighborhood.
Doing my last craft project before my sewing machine started go gather dust in the closet!
Adapting to my new neighborhood. It was not easy but now we are best friends!
When things started to get out of control!
October (no picture!)
What can I say, I was doing so bad that I had to stop my 365 photo challenge!
Quiting my job and taking time to get better: sleeping, reading, listening to music and spending good time with Dan and my mini zoo!
Getting a little makeover to end the year in beauty!
So, this is what I did in 2009! I can't wait to tell you about my crafts, photography journeys, discoveries and projects...and maybe a little vintage etsy shop of mine (but it's a secret for the moment!).
