Curious George, Projects, and Major Blog Neglect

There was a Curious George reading event at our local library last night. I took the girls to check it out. George himself was there, and the girls each got a couple of brand new books to take home.

Averie was SO excited... until she actually got up to the front of the line and realized the guy/gal in the big monkey costume was maybe a bit creepy for her taste. The sense of self-preservation is strong with this one. And she's never been exactly friendly with non-monkey suit people such as grandparents, aunts, and uncles, so it was pretty much a hopeless cause.

Let's call it the easter bunny effect:

At least she wasn't screaming like the little kid in front of us. And on a positive note, she was STOKED about the free books.

I've been busy sewing and making Christmas gifts the last few weeks. I haven't taken hardly any pictures, and certainly not any that are blogworthy.

One thing that is always disappointing about this time of year, is that I can't really blog my fun projects because many of them are intended for my blog readers. Last year I forgot to take pictures of most of them. Here's a sneak peek of what I've been sewing the last week or two:

I'm so behind this year. If my blog posts are few and far between... you'll know why.

Happy crafting!
