I finally feel like i've recovered from christmas. i spent a lovely couple of days at my mom's house out in the olympic peninsula. it rained so much that even when it wasn't raining, it still felt like it was raining. the trees out there are so tall, and there are just so many of them, that they continue to drop water onto the ground long after the rain has stopped.
once i made it home, it looked like a tornado had ripped through the house. the christmas frenzy had left the house completely wrecked. eric and i have taken on some spring cleaning in the wrong season, but i think we both felt some cleansing/organization was in order. i want to go into the new year having things a little more organized. there are many new things on the horizon (new job, wedding), and i'm really looking forward to next year. i suppose i want to go into it with a clear head and a clean house.
that being said, my studio is just trashed. i can't even do anything in there. i plan to tackle that today so i can get busy on some project ideas i have.
i'll leave you with a couple of pictures of the log cabin pillows i made for my grandmother and my mother. i didn't show them earlier because i was worried they might look at this and get a peek at their gifts.
my grandmother was so cute. she just loved the pillow, and once she opened it, she used it until the moment she left. anytime she sat down in a new spot she had to take her pillow with her. my grandmother has been quilting forever, so i was so pleased to get her approval.
well, i'm off to clean so i can get some work done!
