Happy 2011, a little late, but still

WOW! It's been a really long time since I have posted on here.... Nearly a month to be honest and I am posting from my husband's netbook in the kitchen/dining room! So much has happened and is still going on too, that, well, I just haven't had the time to post like I would like.

I was thinking the other day when I actually got a chance to take a bath (not a quick shower, but a sit-in-the-tub-and-relax bath, TMI, I know) that I wished that there was a water-proof computer that I could have sitting next to me so that I could post more. Well, either that or a computer that I could link to my mind so that I could write blog posts, and listings and such.... Then I decided that it wouldn't be all THAT great because there are some pretty unusual thoughts that go through my head that I don't really want to share with anyone... Might get me thrown in a psych ward or something.

Anyway, the holidays where good. I actually closed up the custom part (pretty much the whole thing) of the shops the first week of December and I set out to sew for my own family this Christmas. DIDN'T happen! But that is because we got the shop finished!!!!!!! And the week before Christmas, I was moving into the new self-standing studio.... Only to figure out that I have more fabric then room to store it in (storage space that is) so I am looking to getting in there and making a bunch of stuff so that I can have room for more fabric.

***Hi! My name is Christie and I have an addiction.. It's called fabric, notions and ribbon.... I am not allowed to go to craft stores but once every couple of months and my kids roll their eyes when we head to Walmart because they know that I will end up in the fabric department with a cart full of bolts... To be honest, there are a few workers there that turn the other way when they see me.... They know that there are going to be a lot of cuts in thier future. But you should know that someone has an addiction when they can roll a bolt of fabric back together BETTER than someone who WORKS in a fabric department. (observation of my son one day while in the store) You also can tell who has an addiction by the way the department workers know her ON SITE and ask about her kids........

Anyway, this month's weekends are stocked full of someone having something to do, but I hope to get back into a groove and start posting more often. I stopped the features of the week of other shops because, well, no one was responding to the posts and I felt it wasn't fair to the features!

So, leave me a comment so that I know that I am not just entertaining myself writing these posts. If I don't get a response, I don't think that I will stop the blog all together, because, well, I like to talk but I am a shy person when I first get to know people so this blog is my outlet to speak up.... (My sister and brother will tell you that I am a chatter box, but I beg to differ. But then, why not, I am the oldest in the bunch!)

Here is to a GREAT 2011.... I'll write later how our last week of 2010 went for the family.......

I am so happy to hear your study is complete. Can't wait to see pics of the finished project! I know and share your addictions. My kids roll their eyes when I mention I am going on the group. They know this means I will be absorbed in looking at fabric and notions for hours.

Here's to a productive fabric/notion filled 2011!
