jumping through hoops

I have been absolutely useless at blogging for the past month.  Not just here!  Any blog I have, a deserted wasteland.  Tumbleweeds blowing through.  I don't know why, lets just pretend I was on an exotic holiday.

I have gotten my creative juices flowing again.  I think halloween is a bit of a disruption for me, because although it's an Irish holiday, it's not really much use to me creatively.  It doesn't lend itself to the Homespun treatment, it's so difficult to nail down in  my style.  But christmas!  Let's begin!  I am really going to try to pack my shop this year, I already have dozens of items in the wings.

I listed a few crazy quilt collages, put them in embroidery hoops as wall hangings, I really like how they turned out.  I enjoy making framed collages, but they are risky to ship with the glass.  These will be risky too, at least the delicate wooden hoops.  But I like them very much.  I feel like you'd need a few hoops to create a nice display, there are dozens of lovely ones on Etsy.  Perhaps I will post them next, now that I'm back from my holiday.

These are in my Etsy shop, you can use the little widget on your right to have a look!
