I wanted to start this post with proof that I have been crafting! This is still a craft blog! I have not stopped! I would not be me if I stopped crafting!
Ok. So I said what I needed to say. Here is what I have been working on.
I started this last week, the day she asked if I could do it for her. I went to Walmart... the only store in town that sells fabric... And I picked up three colors of fabric that I loved together. She didnt love it. So I grabbed the colors you see here. I don't love it. She does. So I made a quilt. :)
I need to have it done by Sunday because I am leaving for Germany then. And I will not be back until June 4th. Which is the day of the baby shower. So I am cramming as much hand quilting in as possible in my little free time!
OH YEAH! I graduated! :p
I am a proud owner of a Music Education degree. No job yet. Still trying. 35 applications out since January. One completed interview (came in the top two but lost :( ) Tomorrow I have another interview. Which will be nuts because I will be heading up to Chicago, so it will have to be on my way... (with a car packed full of my apartment...)
Thats me and my family!!!
Yes... yes I get excited easily!
Now that I graduated, what am I doing with my life?
Exactly what I have been wanting to do for months!
I love fishing. Not as much as I like knitting or crocheting or quilting. But close. And in the past few days we have been doing a bunch of fishing!
This was the biggest catch of the day. Catfish!
Steve let me hold this little guy right before we put it back in the water. I almost fell in because I was laughing so hard at the noises it was making!
We even caught a little snapping turtle. Named it Sassifrass. She literally just ripped apart a minnow in the cage we are keeping her in. Brutal.
How do I finish days where I fish until I cannot stay awake anymore?
By cuddling with Kitty. Of course.

- I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!
