I received my first bit of spam today in my comments to a post from last year. It was written in an Asian language that I frankly don't wish to know the translation of. The one word that needed no translation appeared in the middle of the comment. "SEX". Because of this, I must now start moderating all of the comments made to the blog. Please don't see this as censorship. If you leave a negative comment against something I post, that will be displayed after I ensure it is not harful.
If you have a blog, I encourage you to do the same. I wouldn't want the crap that gets put in as a comment to show up in a google search attached to your name and blog.

For a look at some of my recent projects, follow the picture over to my Flickr page. I'm going to take the week after Christmas to do more crafting. I am developing new projects to teach at the quilt shop and I am so excited about the ideas that I'm coming up with.
I don't like being sick but I don't mind not going out in the cold at all. Hope you all are staying warm. I'm trying hard.

I've been doing a little bit of Christmas knitting for someone else but I am not motivated to get it finished right now. I'll really concentrate on it this weekend. For now, I am trying to make this little onesie into something cute for a special little newborn girl.

I am also very happy with the progress I made during Nanowrimo. I have started developing what I think will be a really great novel. I wrote a total of 26,253 words. My 2008 total was a little over 14,00 so I saw a vast improvement. My dialogue has improved greatly and I am much better at story development. I am looking into increasing my writing over the next year. My first step was starting the blog and I have done quite well with it I think. Look for more general writing from me in the next year as well as a lot more crafting. I am in the process of developing more classes to teach at my local quilt shop and I'm looking at picking up a lot of those kitchen skills that I have been avoiding, like bread making and canning.
TwentyTen is going to be a fabulous year and I hope you all will continue to follow me on this journey.

I'm posting this update from my Flickr page. For certain things I tend to post more to Flickr than to anywhere else. It will be nice to share with the blog from here. Let's see how it works out.
