After New Year's update (not really about sewing, but we'll get back to that)

Happy belated New Year's everyone!

Also, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyful Yule, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy (?) Festivus!

I know, I know.  I haven't posted in a while, but I've been busy with the holidays and such and just haven't gotten a chance to make any progress.

But I just wanted to be the first to announce that we have added to our family.

Ya see, we had adopted a chicken from the zoo that my roommate works at.  Her name is Veronica (or Ms. V if  your.... never mind).

She's sooooo cute. She's an Andalusian chicken.

But she was all by herself and so we went on Monday and got her two friends, a Jersey Giant and a Buff Orpington chicken (photos coming as soon as I'm home BEFORE night fall).

The Jersey Giant has been named Virgilia (after Virgilia Hazard from North & South).  The Buff Orpington's name is Taywin after a kender in my DragonLance campaign.

Oh, did I mention my DragonLance Campaign? I started a blog for it at  Don't have much there yet (don't have time to write for the same reason I don't have time to sew).

But, with the holidays done and everything packed up and the house back in shape, I will be back in the sewing room this weekend, look for an actual sewing report this weekend (got to show off the dress I'm working on after all...).

UPDATE to the Update!

I've got pictures in:

Veronica in the front, then Taywin and Virgilia back in the back.
