Wow, the last couple of months have gone by so fast! I’m so grateful to take a quick break and to spend some time with my family for Thanksgiving. My sister was so kind to invite us to join her for the holiday, but sadly we didn’t have enough time off work to travel there and back (it’s about an 11 hour drive, so I would love to move closer!). I wanted to let her know we were there in spirit, so I managed to get a little sewing in and whipped up this fall-inspired table runner to send. I hope it brightened up their table!
I haven’t had as much time to blog the last few months, because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m finishing up my Ph.D. this year, and work responsibilities have taken over! In addition to finishing my dissertation, I’ve been teaching a class, applying for jobs and postdoctoral fellowships, mentoring undergraduates, working as a research assistant for my adviser, and continuing to work on ongoing research projects. Needless to say, I’ve had significantly less time to sew, blog, and keep up with my favorite blogs 😦 I’m hopeful that things will calm down soon, because I’ve really been missing my sewing machine! Plus, I have a few holiday gifts in the works I need to get done! So, stay tuned– I promise I’ll have a few more big projects finished soon to share here!
And, I hope everyone has had a happy, warm, and safe holiday! Simon has been enjoying himself, and even managed to snag a little turkey.
