I really have'nt gone anywhere, I've just been cleaning. I took a break from house duties, which was not such a good idea because that left me with lots of catch up to do. I have cleaned and purged all of the kids rooms, done more loads of laundry than I care to admit. The dishes are done and my sewing table a.k.a the dining room table may be showing acutal signs that dining can be done on it. So, now that that is all done, it's back to crafting and getting ready for The Handmade Parade. I can't wait, this will be the 1st time that I have done anything like this and I am super excited.

I am also super excited about the Secret Santa Christmas Swap that I joined. I love that the internet has allowed me to communicate and interact with people from around the world. It's like having thousands of friends and still having a low phone bill.

I have always loved quilts and only own one. I always wanted to have more to display and use and to hopefully pass down to my kids, but I never thought that I would be able to afford to get one, and then an idea popped into my head-why not make one of your own. So, that is what I am working on right now(if you never hear about this again, that means it did'nt go so well). So, I headed to Barnes and Nobles to find the perfect book to help me...and ended up with two silly monsters in my car instead......
