soft map quilts

Loving these gorgeous Soft-Maps, quilts of cities and neighbourhoods made by Emily Fisher.
I wonder if I would have the patience, but I want one. (You can get a DIY kit here) Or a patchwork with my favourite neighbourhoods. Like a geography memory quilt.

Found via Emily's studio neighbour, the ever-lovely swissmiss.

False starts, packing boxes and new beginnings.

(miniature house necklace by KarolinefelixDream)

Oops what a false start that was. Didn't quite make it past the oh-I'm-back post. Strike that, I'm going again, really

SO they are not
actual boxes. More the virtual kind, as I ship my more personal stuff- musings, things I like, photos, over to a new blog house. You can find me at mynameispepper. I will keep this blog for stitchy-kind of things, and over there for more pepper-y kind of things.

Thanks for sticking by me, lovely followers. We've been through so much together, I would super like to see you over at my new blog-house, if you'd like to come visit.

diving back in

'dive' illustration by aaple

I've been away a lot. The longest I've ever been away from my blog, ever. I had a bit of enough last year, you may have noticed. Work and mojo crises, holidays and visitors, and then my lovely computer, well if it had a belly it would have been belly-up. I have missed sharing my finds and thoughts and photos and little-rants-every-now-and-then. So without feeling guilty about being away, or over-thinking too much, or wondering "what-amI-going-to-write-about-and-will-it-be-witty-and-interesting-enough?" I am diving right back in (on my eensy laptop).

It's nice to be back.
It's going to be a good year.

Do you like the new layout; is it a bit spiffy, or a little niffy?
