I Wish....

I could say had been on a whirlwind world tour.... or or just basking somewhere tropical drinking mai tais, or even had been abducted by aliens. But no. I've been here, not crafting a whole lot, but recovering from all of the drama of late. Then Bam! the remodeling of my house started a little ahead of schedule. While it's much needed and will make my home oh so beautiful once again, it's taking it's toll on me.

My place is in shambles. Torn out old floors, sanding of walls (which means dusty residue everywhere... and I do mean everywhere), painting, sofas and chairs out for reupholstery.... woe is me. But I'm patient and know in the end I'll be very happy. I should've taken photos of the mess, but who wants to see that. I'll take photos when it's done.

In the meantime, I knit up this oversized beret which is slipping off my models head. But you get the idea.

And I have 2 dolls done and 3 in the works. It's been great therapy.

This little waif is wearing the Purl Rabbit sweater and pants. Love them!

Re the renovations: I hear ya! We did it just prior to Xmas last year and it almost killed me. Try and get out as much as you can, and don't look around you... :)

Ah, I would kill for a good renovation lately. But, then again, we are do-it-youselfers who find that sort of thing "fun." I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end. Good to have you back in blogland.

We also went through a mini-remodel this spring, and that dust residue really is so nasty. But, you're right - you'll be so happy when it's done.

Thanks again for the Crystal Palace tip! And welcome back!
