I'm still here!  Just haven't been sewing/crafting much lately.  Hubby & I changed decorations around in our house, making a rather loudly painted spare room not so pretty any more (the color worked with the old decor... not the new). 

I had originally textured the walls of that room with crumpled tissue paper, and after priming over all the walls before repainting, some spots of the tissue paper tore a bit.  I probably should have just patched those areas (I loved the texture) but instead decided it'd be best to take it all off the walls. 

It's a much bigger ordeal than I thought.  I'm still taking the paper down, little by little... I'll be back to sewing soon I hope!

New Blanket (in progress)

Here my little assistant models the blanket I recently started crocheting...

This blanket is a super simple pattern: all double crochet stitches.  I have a more detailed baby blanket in progress too, but I needed something for the days I don't feel like thinking that hard :)
