A New Blog Look



Notice a few changes?  You probably know by now that when I make blog design changes, it usually means I am immobile or otherwise not able to get to my sewing machine easily! The most obvious change is my header.  Usually mannequins creep me out a bit, but I thought these were a little quirky and not at all scary.  You might notice a new profile picture, too.  That's actually me.  Surprised?  I added my "Pages" or Categories under the header.  I need to do a little more tweaking here.  I'm sure there is a way to make the gadgets spaced or aligned better.  There also has to be a way to add images here!  Since I'm pretty much stuck on my butt, I have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere for tips and tricks for more tweaking!  

Thanks to everyone who sent "get well" emails and or left me sweet comments regarding my knee surgery.  My surgery went well and I came home from hospital Saturday afternoon.  All and all my hospital experience was pretty good.  All the nurses and techs were great and treated me really well.  Oh, and my Japanese Fabric Slippers were a huge hit as was my Walker Caddy!  I have a long recovery road ahead, but I feel good and I'm looking forward to a new lease on life with my new knee.  Maybe this is another reason for changing up a few design elements on my blog.  A new knee, a new, positive, outlook on my art, craft, and life in general.  Too cheesey?  Over sentimentalism might be pain pill side effect?  



Besides making changes to the Sew Loquacious blog design, I've made several Yo Yos today.  I convinced my husband to bring me a few bags of fabric scraps, my Yo Yo makers, a pair of scissors, and needle and thread.  Yo Yos are so easy to make, especially with the templates!  I'm hoping to make it into my sewing room soon, but in the meantime, I'm happy making these little circles!  I also have my eye on knitting a few scarves while I on the mend!

Please let me know what you think of my blog design changes.  I really appreciate your feedback!

Tootles!

Your blog looks great! Glad to hear the surgery went well. Maybe now you'll stop kickin' people. :c ) AAAANNNNDDDD...the curse worked FANTASTIC! It's the perfect size, my iPad was nice and snug so it wasn't rocking all over and moving the bag around, and plenty of space for all my gadgets, cords, cables and I even had room for some treats while I meandered through city sized airports! Woo Hoo! I'm off to Phoenix next so I'll be using it again. It's perfect!

Hey Angi! I just had to laugh at you "redecorating your blog" because of being laid up. That is so something I would do! Now...the header is great - very interesting, although I have a terrible, irrational fear of dolls or anything that looks like a doll. But those mannequins do look petty cool!

I will be writing you sometime this week...have loads of running to do, taking my FIL back and forth to doctors, but I'll find some time before the end of the week!

Chat soon!

XOXO,

Cyndi
