First of all, many apologies to those who left questions, tips and encouragement and never got a response; and to new visitors whose comments took months to get approved. I hand’t posted in so long, I didn’t realize there was still traffic. Truth be told, I’ve hardly had a minute to even lurk on Crafster or Ravelry for the past few months, having been buried under an avalanche of busy-ness.
But thanks for all the encouraging comments! Gives me heart to start crafting and posting again.
Forgive me as I kavetch about my life:
Moved back in with spouse. working out okay so far.
Otherwise my life is all about going to or putting together conferences: going, speaking, writing, fundraising, organizing, organizing, organizing, worrying about head counts for the caterer and things like that. It’s been cool in some ways. I wrote an invitation to a high ranking congressional staffer and she shocked me by returning my call. and then everyone started beating down the door to get in. I have such a hard time saying no.
The one crafty highlight is that I joined a fantastic weekly stitch ‘n’ bitch organized through Meetup.com, that wonder of online/real world social networking. Really friendly group of women; diverse too like an Oakland stitch ‘n’ bitch should be, race/ethnicity, age, and craft-wise. And it’s in a fabulous tea shop. What more could I ask for?
