I’m someone who likes change so I’m excited to tell you about a few that are taking place. As you can see I have changed the name and look of my blog. I did this for two reasons. I wanted a name that was more of my own and because I’m also making big changes at my webshop Handcrafts Online which has a web address of ehandcrafts. I hope you will like the changes I’m making there (and here), the ones at the webshop have been necessary for a long time, and involve a lot of work but will make shopping there and managing the site much easier – you wont see the new changes at the website for a while yet – but it will be so different that I wanted to prepare you! I also want to say Thank You to Paula at Kelmscott for her encouragement during this process.
Now for the other good things – I’m feeling a bit better today and feel I have really turned the corner, I still sound like Minnie Mouse when I talk and have a nasty cough, but feel much better than I did even yesterday.
I have had some lovely gifts arrive in my mailbox. Thank you sweet Anna in Poland for these designs from my wish list and beautiful birthday card. Anna has sent me a card in the past and I have to tell you they are really beautiful, you don’t find cards like this in the US. My sister sent me a package with my favorite things, chocolate and Jane Austen – well a Pride & Prejudice companion. She also sent me a really pretty bracelet with John 3:17 on it but I just couldn’t get a good picture of it.
My banana caramel bread was tasty, Tyler inhaled 2/3 of it. The house smelled as good as it tasted. A few weeks ago Jerry took me to an out of the way quilt shop he discovered one day and these are the fabrics I picked up. I’m thinking of a tea cozy for my old Lipton pot.
And finally, since it is President’s Day, I thought I would share a photo of my oh-so-slow progress on the Lady Washington Sampler from The Sampler Girl.
PS – I’ll share a little more about the website changes soon.
