I confess I’ve been almost completely absent from blog-land for a little while. Some things have come up in our home life that have taken precedent over pretty much everything else, and sadly that includes blogging and catching up on all my favorite blogs… and you know that takes some time! 🙂 Don’t worry, there is nothing wrong—in fact, I hope it ends up being the beginning of something fantastic for us (and no, before anyone asks, we’re not having a baby, lol). That’s all I’m willing to say about it right now.
But what it all boils down to is that I’m quite distracted from all my normal hobbies and activities such as sewing, knitting, fun vintage things, and blogging. We’re going to a Christmas party tomorrow and it’ll be the first time I’ve set my hair in weeks (shameful!). At the same time, I’m also having some arm and shoulder problems so I’ve been trying to not knit for some days now to give myself a rest. What does this mean for those of you following the VKC? Well, it may progress pretty slowly for awhile. I’m truly sorry, but with so much extra craziness going on and not being able to knit right now, it makes it hard to keep up with the schedule I had in my head. If you’re eager to get started or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me by email or on Ravelry.
But fear not, I’m not going anywhere! I just may be around less than normal for the foreseeable future and be less chatty when I am around. By no means will that be a permanent thing!
So I’ll leave you today with one of my favorite ornaments from our Christmas tree, a little vintage elf. Isn’t he the cutest?!
Oh my gosh! I have a very similar elf from when I was a kid! (Yes, I am that old!) I loves him!
Hope you have a wonderful and restful holiday!

How mysterious and exciting – I hope all the wonderful things you are hoping for come off! Wishing you a very merry festive season.
Hey, I’m missing you.
What a great tree and the elf is so cute! Take care, rest well, and we’ll be here when you come back!
I was just thinking about you last night, wondering what you had been up to! The elf is delightful and so festive. Can’t wait to hear more about the exciting mystery taking up all your free time!

Can’t wait to hear what you’re up to! Hope you, Mel and Pia have a wonderful Christmas and happy new year!
My Mum gave me an elf like this little guy last year. He’s my favorite ornament 😉
I hope you arm and shoulder get better soon. Must be hard for an obsessive knitter to give them a rest 😉
From my own experience I know that it is very time consuming to write a blog and you are writing such detailed posts with so many pictures I assume you spend hours on them. So it’s completely understandable that you need a break every now and then.
We’ll just wait patiently until your good and ready to start blogging again. Enjoy the holidays and relax, we’ll be there when you’re back.
I love your kitschy silver tree. Very American, somehow. One can never have enough glitter 😉

Totally agree with Couturette (above). Blogging is time consuming, and when you are busy life gets in the way and it takes a back seat! I have been exactly the same, really busy with my business over the last montn so not much to blog about, or time for blogging anyway! Hope whatever it is gets sorted, and look forward to your posts when you are back on track!

I’ve been going through my old journals and realizing how awesome it was to have had so many awesome supportive friends, some of whom I can’t even find anymore. But I found you just now (hope you remember me, it’s been so long) and I’m so excited to see that you’re still blogging and crafting. Following your blog now. I hope you’re having an awesome holiday season and your potentially fantastic thing turns out to be even better than you think.
