are you there God, it's me peaknit...

The title means nothing specifically...but good grief, I have been an apathetic, lazy blogger. I miss it. I'm crafting but I feel like such a "cheater" in that I have been mostly quilting - I mean, this started as a knitting blog right? Oops. I hope my blogland friends will stick with me through this sewing jag. And maybe I'll make some new ones, who sew? I love "crafting diversity". But I know, if blogs stray too far off my interests, I stop going by - I hope y'all will stick with me and maybe even sew with me too.

I spy a robot - isn't he a charmer? The back of my sister's baby's quilt. The little fellow is cooking up nicely, the baby and the quilt, of course.

Today starts the Zig Zag QAL at flickr - it's a tutorial quilt-along, so nice to have guidance and support - and new friends, and pictures and stuff.

I also joined this little Christmas Scrap Block swap - a fun way to get a bunch of different squares for something a little holiday, a little kitschy, I'm picturing a cool table covering. The blocks are from this tutorial - relatively easy peasy, I swear. And a fun swap brings more blogland friends. I just love you people, you have no idea how I look forward to your comments and following along with many of your blog spaces. I attribute most of my craft-spiration to blogs - blogland is such a smorgasboard of imagination. Am I being too mushy?

Okay, the closest thing to knitting to come along in the last week is more spinning for Tour De Fleece...Hello Yarn Shetland - Hello luscious.

I love your quilting and your book reviews and your spinning and your cooking/baking and your...everything! All of that makes everything about your blog even better and more interesting if that's even possible.

Love it all!

Keep it up!

You inspire.

Love the robot quilt. Maybe I can pick-up some sewing pointers along the way. I have a machine, but...well, it is in a closet. Not even sure which closet.

I think you have to do what inspires you, and if that's not (as much) knitting right now, it's fine with me. I love seeing other kinds of projects on blogs I read! The quilt is really cute :)

I'm a sewer too so I love the crafty diversity you post about.
You're just multi-talented and generous enough to share that with us. Thanks!

First of all...the title of your posts reminds me of grade school and Judy Blume!
I think most people do more than one craft...I may be wrong about that though...
I was digging through my cross stitch stuff last week.......:)
