Return from the holidays

After an enjoyable holiday interlude, I'm finally getting myself back to blogging. My fiance came into town a couple weeks ago, and we had a really lovely time being together and visiting family in West Tennessee and Mississippi. A family friend who lives in the Delta really outdid herself by throwing an engagement party for us, and Dan got to meet a significant portion of my family. (He was a hit with them, btw! That's us in the photo.) I also made the acquaintance of the distinguished feline gentleman you see in the picture - former stray, tailless amputee, now lord of our friend's house. I spent a night with him cuddled up in bed with me, which luckily didn't incur the wrath of my fiance, maybe because Binky was quite friendly with him, too! It was a great holiday.

Shibori Alpaca Scarf

Quite pretty, I think - I wonder if a short scarf will sell?

A new and really awesome Etsy store

I know, because one of the people running it is one of my best friends. (The other is her boyfriend, whom I have not yet met, but I imagine he's fairly awesome as well, since she's dating him.) The store is AirshipDelirium, the adorable redhead in the photos is my friend, and they're making a 2010 Steampunk Calendar that's available for preorder, so have a look! At the risk of being pushy, I'm recommending you buy it as well, because it looks really cool.

As for me, I'm working on a custom order for two men's hats. I said I'd have them in the mail by Thursday - so wish me luck!
