Long time, No blog......






I think this is the longest time I have ever gone without blogging and I feel guilty, and yes, I have missed it too! Things are crazy here and there are a lot of changes in the works. The kids mom has been here getting to know them again, and they are enjoying her and the baby...The baby is adorable and I am enjoying getting to know him. Then my great friend and the kids Aunt came to visit and we got in all kinds of trouble...she did anyway shopping for her girls. I loved having her here! It was fun to have my own company for a change. Olivia also had her 8th birthday... It is hard for me to believe that she is eight...She had a neighborhood friend party that was HUGE....(no we didn't expect fifteen kids plus our three...) and then we had a family party with her mom when she got here....The I-pod got the biggest scream...she is growing up, that is for sure....I have been working on this crane / zen quilt for my oldest daughter...it just needs borders now and then I will quilt it....it is the late part of her graduation gift...I also have been working on my apron swap and my second necklace book for Fiber Art Traders...Like I said, it's crazy here but in a good way and hopefully, I will be able to get in some good blog time and see what everyone has been up too! I miss you all!
