Allow me to explain

Reason number 1 for my unintentional hiatus was discussed in my last post: my lack of desire to write or do anything for that matter.

Reason number 2 is: my new toys :)

Meet my brand new Janome Sewist 500:

Isn't it beautiful? I'm so proud.

And finally, the little thing I'm so excited to try out:
My automatic buttonhole foot! I haven't tried it yet, but I will soon!

I was also distracted by the purchase of my new duvet cover/sham set. It made me want to never get out of bed.
Isn't it purdy? I can't say it was worth what I paid for it, though. But whatever. It looks nice, I think.

So there you have it! My latest purchase/endeavor. Once I have a little photo shoot I'll show you some of the wonderful things she's made. And so quiet! And smooth. It's a dream.

Sweet Baby Jesus

I’m making a relevant post. Right now. After 4 weeks.
Yeah, sorry about that. I think I have been/still am a little depressed. Dunno why, all I know is that I don’t have much desire to do anything and feel lonely a lot. Lately,with a few exceptions, the only reason I actually do anything is because I'm either doing it for someone else, or because I know I have to. Therefore, I haven’t had much desire to write or make anything. But I’m making myself post because you deserve it and because I do things for other people.
Several weeks ago I made these donut muffins from Sugarcrafter.

I was really excited about them, but I have to say, they didn’t quite live up to my expectations. They tasted fine, mostly like cinnamon, but I didn’t find them very donut-like. Like, at all.

Buster (the cat) liked them. Seriously. he licked one. Don't worry, I ate that one.
I cannot say that they were bad. They weren’t. They just weren’t what I was hoping for, either. See, I’m a big lover of cake donuts so I thought “A muffin version?! Hells yes!” But that’s really not what they’re like.
I would say give them a try and see what you think. Don’t take my word for it.

I realize that I haven't posted in over 2 weeks.

To be honest, it's not because I have nothing to post. It's just because I don't really feel like writing. I've hardly been on the internet.

Hopefully this weekend I'll have the time and motivation to post about the soup, bread, cupcakes, muffins, cake, and dress I've made.

Just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten about you.
