I’ve decided to retire the blog for this year, or at least for the time being.  Increasingly, in the past couple of years (ie. now that I have two children instead of just 1) I find time to blog competing with time to actually make something.  Given the choice, I would rather be making than writing about making. 

Incidentally, 2010 was a great year for making things, for me personally, for my sirenita who mastered machine stitching and knitting this year, and for being inspired by so many talented crafters out there in the blogosphere.  We had a really wonderful handmade Christmas that could fill a couple of posts and the momentum has carried into 2011.    Thank you so much for stopping by.   Until we meet again, best of luck in your crafty endeavours!
