So, probably like the rest of you crazy crafters, I have been super busy with holiday crafting.  So it's been a little quiet here on The Craft Junky blog.  But there us been plenty of sewing and knitting going on.  I tried not to completely stress myself out with my list of handmade items but I wasn't really successful with that, heh.  I plan on posting pictures of all of the goods as soon as they are opened so you guys can see what I have been up to.  But for now, I hope that you all have a Happy and Safe Holiday!!!!

....And may the force be with you.  :)

I won a contest!!!

So, last month I saw that Sew Mama SewCathy Gaubert, and Lark were putting on a contest.  I went back and forth on whether I should enter something or not.  I didn't really think that anything I made was really up to par with some of the other quilts that were being entered.  But ultimately, I decided to enter this quilt that I made for Jeni for our Harry Potter Swap a while ago.

Well, the winners were announced last week and I won third place!!!!!  I was/am so excited and shocked.  Thanks so much Cathy and Sew Mama Sew and Lark!!!!

It is has been so crazy around here for the last month! I have a lot to tell so I am going to do a quick recap.  Let's see... First there was a birthday.

 I got my Post Sewing Summit Swap gift out to my partner.

I taught my oldest little lady how to knit...

and to sew.

I sewed up a bunch of ukulele straps for a local guitar shop.

I found out that I am getting older.

And I decided to change things up a bit.

Of course there was Thanksgiving thrown in there somewhere and putting up a christmas tree.  I think I am all caught up with you now except for maybe a couple of things.  But I plan on putting those in tomorrow's post.  Have a Happy Friday!
