MIA

Missing In Action....that's me this last week.  Probably for at least another week.  Nothing drastic, just busy and slightly overwhelmed.  And in a bit of pain - today I made an emergency visit to my WONDERFUL dentist of 30 years - a cracked tooth.  There's a crown in my future.

I've decided on what I'm going to make for my February Christmas gift.  An envelope style make-up bag, tutorial here.  I'm going to do mine a bit different though, if it works I'll take pics and show how I did it.  How many of you are done already?    Honestly, if I wasn't the hostess for this, I'd probably not do it!  But thanks to you, and your wonderful encouragement, I am.

I have a very large number of projects in the works, nothing that I can show you, which makes for a boring blog.  I haven't had time to troll around looking for tutorials, either.   Bad, bad blogger, that's me.  I'm going to take a week or so and just concentrate on sewing, and leave the computer off as much as possible - it's a magnet, drawing me in, you know I love to visit you and comment on your blogs; well, I've been doing a bit too much of that.  It's such a pleasant, relaxing thing to do, but if I get any more relaxed I'll go into a coma.  And then nothing would get done for sure.

I'll see you next week for Tickled Pink Tuesday.  Not before then, I'm laying down the law for myself.  Must. Create. SOMETHING.  Before I go, Hermoine wanted to say hi and show you one of her custom made beds....

She knows which hat to lay on, the one belonging to the child who's allergic to her.  See you soon!

You are a dear sweet friend, and a beautiful blogger!!! Look at Hermoine - isn't she just gorgeous?!!! That bed sure does look very comfy - wish I could fit in there for a quick nap, too!!

I hope you feel better real soon Allie, and that the crown in your future isn't just of the dental variety!!!
Much love sweetheart!!!

That little kitty is so preciuos. Smart kitty too. I hope you feel better soon and I know exactly what you are talking about. I have a full weekend this weekend but hope to do some sewing this weekend. HOPE. I have not accomplished much this month but hope to get on it too. Thanks for the motivation.

Missing you. Hope you're feeling better soon. That cat is precious. I bet she's a lot of company to you.

Karen Wilson said...

I'd love to join in Christmas Through the Year, and hopefully will later, but for now I haven't even thought about what to give for Christmas, let alone started making it!! I think you're ahead already if you know in February what you need to make for December!!

Linda said...

Will miss you, but I totally understand! Trust me! Hermoine is hilarious!

Susan said...

I hope your tooth pain is resolved quickly. You do deserve a crown...but the kind for your head would be much more fun. Take care of yourself.

Sandra :) said...

Awwww I hope everything calms down for you soon, Allie - maybe you should just snuggle up with that gorgeous kitty of yours and have a nice peaceful NAP! On the bed, though - not in the dresser ... ROTFL!

Aimee said...

Well, hopefully, life will settle down for you soon. Just wait until you see my gift this month. I actually did it in the first week and only mentioned that I have it done on my blog so I know you didn't copy me. Too funny! But you'll have to wait and see...
In the meantime, please be good to yourself and take care! :)

Mama Pea said...

Such a cute kitty. Sorry about your tooth! Hope you feel better soon and that things settle down for you soon.

Gotta love a little kitty in a drawer. Time for a pet around here too.

Sorry your tooth is giving you an owie....no fun.

Oh Allie, I'm so sorry that you've cracked your tooth and will require a crown. You and I are a pair, arent' we? I hope it doesn't give you too much discomfort before you get it repaired!

I've been missing a lot from my blog, too. I'm mad about not being able to sew....but I do have a project that I finished for this month's Christmas gift, so that's a good thing!

Hermoine looks so cute all snuggled up in the drawer. My cat Buster likes to do that, too. Sometimes I wish I could get in there with him and close the drawer and hibernate until Spring!

Feel better, dear friend, and we'll "see" you soon!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Ha, what a great shot. Good for Hermoine, too bad for the one who owns the hat...
Teeth, yuck, awful stuff. Gives me the willies just thinking about a cracked tooth. I had two cavities this time around - not good, and the dentist asked yet again if I wanted to get my gums fixed. Not now I told her. That's for a specialist down the road many years from now - I hope - better yet, never.
See ya when we see ya.

Take care and rest up! I am just about done with Christmas 2010! I hope I can start on 2011 soon!

mandapanda said...

I've been MIA too! Without a camera I have been just too slack in getting any posts done...All will change as I got it back yesterday!!
Your kitty is gorgeous! I caught Celeste in one of our drawers the other day!

Fiona said...

I hope things settle down for you soon sweetie. Hermoine is gorgeous :)

Hugs - Fee X

Mary said...

Oh Hermione - you are ever so fabulous (but of course, you already knew that) - lol! I hope all goes well with the new crown. It is such a bummer to have to pay a lot of money to have the dentist go to town on your teeth *sigh*

Happy sewing, Allie! I agree about the computer being a big time drain. A while back I went through and deleted a ton of feeds out of my Google Reader because I was spending more time looking than doing. I kept the ones that were really special to me and I have found that I can really read them with a lot more enjoyment because the quantity is so much less!

Love the picture of Hermoine! She looks very content.

Michelle said...

I hate that you have a cracked tooth. Take all the time you need.

Hugs,
Michelle

susan m hinckley said...

I'm being a bad blogger, too, so I give you permission to take all the time you need off, Allie! Can't wait to see what the extra time at your sewing machine produces. Be well!

Terry said...

Sorry about your tooth! Hermoine looks so comfy! :0)

Sorry about your trip to the dentist. Totally understand the computer draw. I have the same problem. Enjoy your break.

Oksewnsew said...

We will miss you Allie, but sometimes we just have to do what we NEED to do. Enjoy your time and be sure to love on Hermoine, she'll take away the stress..Give her love for me too..

John'aLee said...

Darling picture.
Allie sometimes it is a good thing to take a break from the 'tech' world. I think it gets a person back in balance. I wouldn't have realized this unless my laptop went kerplunk while on the road this last month. So enjoy the break sweet one!
Sending a hug....

Cheryl said...

So sorry about your tooth and I totally understand the computer thing. Feel better, rest up and CREATE!!

Mama Spark said...

Love Hermoine's bed. I sure do understand about the computer being a HUGE time suck. I get sucked into that all the time. Now I will only do it at night when it is more difficult to sew. Good luck on your bags and I hope you are having fun with your secret project!

Michelle May said...

Hope your tooth is doing better. I just had a crown last month. Ick, gag and ouchie!!
Hermoine is just so darn cute! I just love all that fuzziness!
xx, shell

Stitched With Prayer said...

My gosh, Hermoine is such a beautiful girl, and she knows what's comfortable too, LOL. I sure hope you are feeling better very soon. I think having a tooth ache is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world. Just miserable. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for that. Gentle Hugs...

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Aw Allie - so sorry about your tooth! And, so glad you're taking a break. I know the computer takes so much time - but it is such fun, too! Hope your break was AWESOME!

Jan said...

I've made that bag a few times, Allie; a nice easy project that looks good. How's your poor mouth? All fixed up soon, I hope. Look after yourself and get plenty of rest.

Tanya said...

Hope your tooth is better. Hermione knows a good thing when she sees it!

Talin's Corner said...

Hope you feel better soon. Ouch, a cracked tooth...I hate teeth problems.

Kim D. said...

Hermoine sure has a cozy bed there. Too cute! I know the computer is a huge time sucker for me also. I could get so much done, if I could just stay off the computer.
