I've been lurking, though, but it has been some time since I've posted here. Still alive and well, busier than I should be! My younger daughter is still waiting for her divorce to go through, my older daughter and her family are dealing with the aftereffects of long-term low-level carbon monoxide poisoning this past winter, my mother has been in and out of the hospital, my sister-in-law is on on life support....well, you get the idea! I have started a long-arm business and it has been going well...making bears for the local hospice ("burden buddies"), doing some bookkeeping and taking classes to keep me updated at H&R Block...well, as I said, you get the idea!!
I have enjoyed many neat quilt shows, and as an owner of a business, some open houses at a distributor. In this area the new trend is to have one-stop shop hops, where several shops get together in one place. It sure saves gas but you don't get the opportunity to see each unique store.
In spite of all the busyness, I have still had time to sew with 3 other good friends...which serves as good therapy for all of us.
