A blog to drool over...

Okay so I am amazed at how wonderful some peoples blogs are... but how do they do it? Especially crafting blogs. where they have these wonderful post plus pictures that look like they should be in magazines... PLUS... a craft to go with it... HOW DO U DO IT PEOPLE??? I do not even have a job right now and thinking of sewing, knitting, embroidering, and blogging makes my contacts dry! One blog that I totally drool over is Posy Gets Cozy not only does she live somewhere amazingly beautiful, she has a knack for capturing them through her photos... and her crafts are beautiful and of a wide variety... plus... Her pup is the cutest... but yeah on that note... I am getting sick of crafting... should be be cast down by the crafting gods...? possibly ! but its the home stretch for Handmade Brigade and I am feeling a little overwhelmed. I think I am sick of stitching on onesies and I hate sewing bias tape... ok enough complaining... have you seen the new patterns from Sublime Stitching ?? lovin' them. Especially the Russian nesting dolls and the black apple patterns. CAN'T WAIT TO GET THEM!!! I have a new "big project" I am planning. I am going to make myself a quilt with embroidered squares. My Grandma-ma (great grandma) made me one when I was a wee lamb and she made her own patterns plus knew stitches I have never seen before... so In loving memory of my Grandma-ma who could cuss, craft, and play the piano like its no ones business (and still manage to call herself a mormon) I am making myself a pin up quilt!!! So wish me luck because knowing me Ill never finish... :)
