hello there.

I disappeared off the face of the blog for awhile. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, then you probably have a better picture of what in the world we have been up to. 

The Craft Family unexpectedly bought a house and moved our home and studio and four people and four fur babies across the river right back in time to 1969. Well, our home and neighborhood feel like we moved right back there anyway. I am in love with this house. 

We did this right smack in the middle of the holidays and upended any grand plans of staying on schedule. Our girls started new schools and the oldest is attending a true middle school for the first time... and in the middle of the school year. Transition has gone really well, but it's still been, well, transition. And it's certainly not over. 

We are all settled into our new home though. The beautiful Janome longarm I received right as we were making an offer on our new house is STILL IN ITS BOX. Oh my goodness, if I didn't have so much to get us all back on track with the quilt-along, I would go unpack that baby right now... but I'll worry about that when we are done with this quilt, alright? Alright! 

So.. on to the Stag! Stag instructions post coming Monday with the next surprise block right on its heels next week. 

Thanks for hanging in there with me! I have so many fun projects and fabrics launching this year and I can't wait to share them with you. More "Abstractions" are coming as well as more free projects and blocks. 

Let's do this 2015! 



Not the real key, but it worked for a sneaky selfie before we had the real ones :)

Fur baby approved.
