I know,

it's only rock 'n roll,

but I like it! 

Shirt pattern Antonia from Farbenmix made from some luscious Farbenmix star jersey. The skirt is just a mash up.

In other news...

Recently, I attended the CHA, Craft and Hobby Association trade fair, in town. Did a little make-'n-take and caught up on the latest in fabric stabilizer technology. Compared to last year's show, I saw more sewing supplies makers with stands. This is a good sign, I think.

The people from Creative Publishing International are almost too much fun.

This is Elanor Lynn, author, free-spirit and passionate needle crafter, showing CPi marketing director Catherine Steen a stitch or two. Elanor put knitting needles back in my hand for the first time in two decades. I'm "continental", did you know that? I didn't either. "Continental" not a "thrower".

Here, we, from left to right, ... I don't know who that is... she has a crafting television show up in Canada ... Sort of a Canuck Martha? Please tell me who this is. Very nice lady. Anyway, moving along, we then have author and Craftside blogger Stephanie Girard and author and artist Lisa Kettell.

Very cool. And can I just say - your daughter is looking so much older! Did this happen overnight? I sometimes feel that way with my oldest.

Thanks, ladies!

Jen, yes, it WAS overnight. I tucked her in one night, my little baby girl. And she woke up the very next morning a young lady. I saw it right there, in the curve of her eye. You know how you have heard older parents say that clichés about "they grow up so fast"? And you think, "This is going fast? It feels like it will never end!" And then you wake up and your baby girl is a little lady.
