Where have I been? In North Carolina, that’s where. I’ve been crazy busy – too busy even to make plush, which makes my soul hurt. And now I have the flu! Hang in there, plush fans, I anticipate getting back to my sewing machine on Sunday. Fingers crossed! Here’s a barn that I saw nestled … More The Void
