Yes, I am still here. I have been signing up for classes that begin next month, trying to concentrate on sewing one last major listing for etsy before I go to school, because with working part time and attending school full time something has to go and I am afraid it will be the sewing. Ah well, different stages in life require different things. I am excited about the direction I am going and I will do my best to not let blogging go by the wayside! That is one thing I can't give up.
While I have been taking my break I have been catching up with some of my favorite blogs that I haven't had a chance to read. One of those is Posy.  She is a cute blogger in England who has the cutest cottage and the sweetest photos.
Like this
and this...
and this one too.
Such pretty things to see. I found this youtube video and song on her site and fell in love with the music.

You should stop by and take a look at her blog, it is pure eye candy:>)

I can't leave you without a teeny peek at what I have been working on.
I hope to have enough done soon to stock the shop :>)
Back to the grindstone, I'll see you all soon!


  1. Wow, you've added a lot since I saw it Tuesday. I love it!

    I love the teapot cozy, too. This one's even prettier than the one you linked us to yesterday. I haven't started the heavy hinting yet, but I'm quite sure Julianne needs to make me one of those, don't you think? For now, she's been making daffodils for you, though. I'll be patient-this time of year I don't need a tea cozy so much, right?

  2. Hi Kathy
    I am so excited for you that you are going back to school. It's too bad that your sewing will have to take a back seat but it will only be a for a season. Whatever it is that you are making there it looks fabulous. You are so creative.
    I love that crocheted tea cosy too. So cute!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  3. Whatever you are working on is adorable! Love the hollyhocks!

    I hope you are doing well! Sounds like you have a lot of irons in the fire.

    I love Posy's site, too. Always fresh and pretty with touches of whimsy.


  4. I'm so glad you are following your heart! And I hope you can keep up with a blog or two now and then. I will be praying for you as you start this new venture. Thanks for sharing Posy, her blog, her photos and the song.

  5. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!

    I'm quite excited for you with school coming up and all!!

  6.!!! Everything looks great. That last pillow is positively swoon-worthy my friend! Can't wait to see it in all it's finished glory! = )


  7. I love the video and song! I am going to visit your blog friend. She looks like she has some amazing things to share.

    I am so excited for you and school!

  8. What pretty things you make, and in the midst of being so busy too!

  9. FINALLY!!!!! I've been waiting for you to post something new for FOREVER!!! I'm loving how that project is turning out! You got to see Keeka? *jealous*...

  10. SO funny! I woke up thinking about Posy's books with the fabric covers and jewels stuck on. Great minds you know...

    The music is really sweet.

  15. Oh my goodness! That little peek is to visit your etsy! karen....

  16. Hi Kathy
    I just popped over for the first time on a link to your chicken soup recipe. YUM! After reading a few posts I decided to become a regular follower. Your sewing projects are GORGEOUS - especially the new work in progress. LOVE the pink hollyhocks with the green and black. Good luck going back to school and persuing your dreams. As an almost 50ish paraprofessional formerly from Michigan who still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up I am inspired by your example and wish you all the best!! Chris M

  17. Hi Kathy....well you are one busy lady...Your going back to school full time...What will you be studying?....I sure hope you do keep a little time to blog...

  18. That video was lovely, made me tear up!
    Now do call if you need help with your homework! :)
    Love the tea cozy!

  19. Kathy, I just had such a sweet time catching up on your posts. I'll be thinking of you as your school and work schedule begin.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your 'new' dining room. I love the paint color on your chair.

    I love to read Posy's blog. Hers and yours were two of my first discoveries, along with Kim's. All three are still top favorites.

    Thank you for the chicken soup recipe. I want some now!

    Hooray, March has come at last! Even Floridians were sick of winter this year.


  20. I really love the teapot cozy! That is so neat. Your project is looking great.

  21. Kathy,
    thank you for the links, I haven't visited Posy for a while. You know with studying graphic design, you could probably show and tell on your blog. Or use us as your experiment for your homework. I can't wait to learn about what you are studying. You will be a natural.

  22. Hey Kathy, it sounds like you are a pretty busy gal! I don't know what it is you are making, but it looks wonderful! Can't wait to see the whole thing...Love that song too, now I'm off to see Posey's blog...thanks for sharing! Lots of good luck with your classes and work, but don't forget to let us all know how you are doing now and then!

  23. I will have to check out Posy's site. It looks wonderful. And speaking of wonderful, it looks like you've got another great design going. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

  24. Look at all this beauty always!! :)

    I too haven't been able to blog much lately but I want to keep it up as well!

  25. Beautiful things to look at here, Kathy! Spring is definitely awakening each of us. Thanks for sharing!

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! Stop by my blog to enter my Harney and Son’s “Irish Breakfast Tea” Giveaway. Just post a comment.

    Best Blessings, KJ
