Hello, faithful readers!

Hello everyone! It's been a long, long time since I've updated here, but I can explain! I've been very busy. Yeah I know, that's not much of an explanation. How about this--I bought a house! We've been fixing it up (since frankly it was a piece of crap) and so I haven't had much time or inclination to keep this place updated.

These things haven't helped either:

Um, Assassin's Creed 2 is awesome. If you played the first one and liked it even the tiniest bit you will absolutely love this one. In fact, even if you didn't like the first one at all you will love this one because it's beautiful and fun and stabby.Yeah, I love Ratchet and Clank. Love love love. Now if Naughty Dog could make another Jak and Daxter game I would be in heaven.

Yeah, it's pretty much just Phantom Hourglass but less annoying and more fun.
Yay Battlestar!

Anyway, things have started to slow down around here. The craft room is slowly coming into focus, which means that we can start making some really cool things again. We are starting to actually decorate, which is going to be fun, so hopefully I'll be able to post some of the cool things we do. No wait, don't leave, it's going to be cool, not boring! My bedroom is going to look like Indiana Jones' study if he were an alien bounty hunter, plus some Steampunk elements thrown in for good show. Seriously, it's going to be awesome. I can't wait.

Once our craft room is up and running I would also like to start making more patterns--is there anything you guys would be interested in? I have a couple of original patterns I would like to try out, something a little different from what we've been doing, but if anyone has any suggestions/wish lists I would love to hear it. I would really like to make Lando, and probably another alien (Jawa? Ewok?) but it doesn't have to be from Star Wars.

Anyway, as a thanks to all of you (at least one? anyone? hello?) who have stayed with me through this boring reprieve, I have a special going on! Head on over to bigcartel and pick up all of the Star Wars patterns--the original Heroes of the Rebellion pattern, Yoda, Ackbar and Obi-Wan--for only $15! This offer is only good on bigcartel (not etsy), and only for a limited time, so hurry over!

Stay tuned--this year is going to be awesome!

Welcome back! I was hoping you hadn't disappeared forever. Congratulations on the house! That's going to be our next big step, hopefully sometime in the next year. Oooh, to have an actual craft room and not have to clean everything up every time we have guests. Looking forward to seeing your new patterns, and if you do want to make something Star Wars related, I vote Ewok!

I was kinna getting worried.

I'm crazy jealous of your craft room... I had one... then we got broke and had to move in with the parents... I miss it... *sigh*
I have an idea of a pattern for you to share.. there is a pattern for a Jedi cloak/robe on (I prob butchered the spelling) I made a bathrobe version for hubby for C'mas, I'll put it up on my blog soon..ish.. (yeah I haven't been updating either...)

I can already imagine Indy as an alien bounty hunter XD
Also, yay Spirit Tracks! Ugh, every time I write about that on MY blog, the post turns into a small novel. I love it probably more than I should.
