I’m back…!

And suddenly it’s October. The middle of October. The days are cooler, the nights are longer, the leaves are blowing off the trees at a really incredible, mind-boggling rate. Where did the summer go? Where did September go? It’s all been a blur, but I know I enjoyed it.

And now I’m back. Ready to return to this crazy blogosphere. A few updates:

• I have a whole bunch of good stuff for sale at The Linden Tree, a beautiful gift shop in South Minneapolis. (stop in and say hi to Melissa!)

• I’ve been sewing for myself. Or rather for people I love, instead of just producing goods for sale. (and it feels great.)

• I’ve been reading. I plowed through The Help and devoured a number of magazines (including a Martha Stewart Living, who knew?)

• I’ve been cooking. Nothing like I did before Daughter and the sewing machine entered my life, but a few things, including these muffins and this soup. (i <3 pumpkin)

• I’ve been accepted into my first Art Festival (i’m thrilled and horrified at the same time).

• I’ve started working out again. Meaning I’ve been breaking a sweat and not just walking the dog. (This is important, because my hockey season starts in two weeks and I don’t want to die).

• I’ve made a commitment to get myself to Yoga at least once a week. (again, important!)

• I’ve been playing. With Daughter. With Dog. With the family. (The work will get done when it needs to get done, but sometimes it’s more important to watch Elmo get tickled.)

• And finally, I’m working on my Mighty List. (because this really, really is important)

I’ve missed you. I’m glad to be back. What have you been up to?

    Congratulations on the Linden Tree and the women’s art festival! I really need to get over to the Linden Tree soon. Have you sold much there? Have you settled on what you will make for the festival?
