My Latest Handmade News

First of all I want to say thanks to Pallas. I won her blog giveaway. The little quiltie is perfect in my guest bedroom where I show off quilts I have collected. In my opinion she put a great amount of charm in it with the photo, the fabrics and the trims.

In other news I sold a scarf last month. The customer was having some trouble with payments and because I now have an account with Squareup.com I was able to help him out. With no account required on Artfire we completed the sale offline and it all worked out.

One last bit to share, well two. First, I have been feeling a bit of guilt about not being one of those bloggers that cheerfully chats every day. I just can't do it and the more behind I perceive myself to be the worse and longer I procrastinate doing anything at all. New schedule for blog posts here is once a week on Thursdays.


So until next week I hope you all stay cozy.

What a surprise!

video 

Yes, yes, I know, it has been more than a month since I last posted. I had a fun and busy July that I will catch up on another day. 

I had to share what happened just off my back porch this morning. As I was pouring a second cup of coffee I heard one of those "what the heck?" sounds. Looking out the kitchen window I saw a hot air balloon coming down in the field just over my back fence. The sound I heard was the burner going off and on.
I have no idea what the problem was but the balloon was deflated, loaded on a truck and the passengers were put in a van and within half an hour they were all gone. I was told the intention was to float along the Snake River which is fairly close to my house but evidently it did not work out that way.
The plan for blogging, yes I always make plans, is to reduce my guilt over not posting several times a week by committing to post something here every Wednesday. I think I can keep with that and quit beating myself for not posting more.

Until next week......
