What's Going On?

Over here in Mighty Distractible country...yeah, well...lots of stuff is happening. Some good, some not so good. Alex is dealing with an unexpected and relatively major health issue and I'm dealing with some intense health issues of a family member. As I'm sure many of you are aware, this can suck the time and fun out of your day. It's a distraction that neither of us is too keen on.

But, like so many of our readers, craft is our sanctuary. So, during our bumpy patches we are still making - or we'd probably lose our minds! Here are some snapshots of my crafty world over the past couple weeks...

So, please have patience with us as we focus on other things for a bit. We'll continue to post as we can - hopefully at least once a week. If nothing else, we'll re-post some vintage MD which can be a lot of fun. Keep us in your thoughts, please.



  1. Sending good thoughts to you both, and to your families. Wishing you health, peace, and joy.

  2. Best wishes to you all. From my own experience, I do know that the meditative motions of knitting or crocheting can be very calming.


  3. Hang in there...crafting, especially sewing, for me is very therapeutic...when you concentrate on sewing a straight line, it is difficult to think of anything else.
    Best wishes to you both.

  4. Margo, Frances, Angela - Thank you so much for the well-wishes. It's bizarre that both of us are dealing with health issues at the same time. One nice thing about blogging as a team is that, if one is down, the other can pick up the slack. Not this time though! I'm sure we'll both be back to 100% before you know it. - Alex
