Honestly - I am a bad blogger.  I have had every intention of doing it, but I wanted to change my blog around and make it pretty first.......

So I have been busy stitching.  I've worked on new models for Lori, the Stacy Nash class project, Halloween models, and now I am working of the Witches Garden for someone.  

But it has taken this long because the kids are all home for the summer.   We have been to the pool, the beach, 4-H camp, and back to the pool...Now it is time for back to school shopping and senior pictures...  And Nathan will be going to full time pre-kindergarten this year, so I have been trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up, and I have no idea!  What am I going to do all day long with NO kids???  We shall see....


  1. Welcome Back!!! When Benjamin started school full time two years ago I was in the position of no children at home. Of course I was pregnant at the time so I slept those first few months. I loved the time alone as much as I loved the time with my kids. I hope you do too!

  2. It sounds like you've been busy. I know you'll find something fun to do with your spare time. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

  3. glad you're happy with your blog now!
    can't wait to see your HUGE sewing basket!!!

  4. Yea! I new blog to follow....my sister Beth and I met you in July when I was down from Pa....we were the sisters in on a Sunday when Lori wasn't there and you entertained us so wonderfully! Cannot wait to see more posts from you
