Why I haven't posted lately

There are actually a lot of reasons why. I really need to try and do this more often because when I think about sitting down to write I think of so many things to write about - why women are so amazing (did anyone see the Oprah where women always came to the rescue of victims during a hidden camera set up?), my obsession with the new Gorgeously Green book, my plan to plant a vegetable garden, the tradgedy of the Kentucky Derby (I knew I shouldn't have watched it!), the importance of old friends, etc. etc. But today I'm going to write about something I can include pictures with :). I have been sewing - a lot!!! I've made 7 tea towel aprons and 2 coaster sets from Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing book and I've made four pillow covers and one loveseat cover with instructions from my mom :). I'm honestly having so much fun I can't stand it. I'm constantly looking for where ribbon is on sale in town and can't wait to have time for my next project. I've also found a ton of cool blogs about sewing/knitting/fabric etc. etc. - like I need more to look at at the computer - but they are fabulous inspiration. And did you know they have a magazine called "Artful Blogging"? It's a whole new world to me. Anyways - here are some pics of some of my sewing creations.
