These past few days have been slightly hectic. I have a sibling graduating from high school tomorrow so I've been helping the parents get ready for things. As well as attempting to organize my room, which has not gone well... There's too much "college stuff" in my room for it to be clean and me to be happy being in there for an extended periods of time. I like my things clean and organized, which hasn't been happening.

My sewing machine will be migrating upstairs tomorrow, ugh... I have things I want to sew... And I have plenty of pictures to put up here, when I'm not distracted. I have to work today or else there would be a better post and pictures. I had something for where I volunteer this morning and am going into work soon. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll be able to put up pictures of the new fabric I have as well as a pattern that I hope to work on soon!

Double impatient

Ack... I feel bad I haven't updated, I've had time to do it... I've just been lazy and working... Oh well. I haven't been sewing lately. My younger brother graduates soon and I had to clean up all of my fabric (and there is a LOT of fabric). Once all the festivities are over I'll set my machine up again and perhaps get to working on another quilt and a top.

This picture is one I took last summer. I very much enjoy photography and photo manipulation. Thought I'd share a little something since I don't have any sewing news to share, had to find something. More photos might be up the next few days as we have new flowers and I have the next three days off, after today.

Fuzzy Little Green Things

Way back in October one of my friends birthday's was coming around. I decided to lug out my sewing machine (at that point I hadn't touched it for two years) and sew her something. My friend has a great and passionate dislike for rabbits, so respecting her dislike I made her a rabbit wallet.

Pardon the pictures, I snapped them right before I headed over to see her!

First Post Introductions

Normal 0

I’ve finally, finally started a blog. I’ve been playing around with the idea since, oh, January-ish and finally here it is! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Katja Geist. You can always shorten it and call me Kat. No, it’s not my real name, but for the sake of being mysterious (and slight paranoia) it’s what I go by.

I’m heading off to graduate school come August/September so this is a way of letting people know what’s going on in my life as well as sharing my artistic nature with the Internet community. I have an undergraduate degree in architecture with a minor in art. I’m hoping to go to grad school for Historic Preservation, if all goes well (and the animals sacrifices worked…).

I sew, I cook, I bake, I crochet, I knit, I clean… Wait, wait… Not so much with the cleaning… As some of my friends say I’m the perfect 50’s housewife, minus the husband bit. I’ll share some of my sewing and cooking with ya’ll as well as ranting about life/grad school/and the crazy happenings I’ll get myself into by moving out of the lovely state of Ohio come fall.
