About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

I'm A Very Bad Blogger

No photos to post...I'm just here to admit to you all that I am a very bad blogger. My excuses are mostly lame. I spent some time getting ready for a quilt retreat at the farm, and I enjoyed it very much. Faye at Mimi's Passions posted the photos of our sewing fun within moments of her arrival at home, even though she has a crazy, hectic life that involves work and ailing parents and in-laws.

I, however, left the retreat to deal with several inches of water in my basement at home. That basement was where my stash lives. Some of that stash was on the floor...or near the floor. Some was lost, some fabrics bled into others but survived the hot water washing and will be used someday, somehow. Books and magazines absorbed many times their weight in water and are now entoumbed in the landfill.

Framed photos, childrens artwork, and scrapbooking supplies met with the same fate. Some could be saved, others, not.

Roaring fans and horrible, obnoxious odors have made our home an unpleasant place to be, but slowly the smells are fading and hope is returning.........the carpet can be saved and the walls are drying, without any evidence of mold.

As life begins to return to normal, the call of my needle and thread grow stronger and I will soon take a photo of something created by my hands.

(Sure is a dramatic way of saying my freaking basement flooded, huh?)

Talk to ya soon chicks.

Well, it is good to hear from you again. I know how awful your dilema has been, but you sure make it an interesting read. You definitely deserve some time to get back to your needle and we will all wait patiently to see what new things you come up with. Glad things are getting back to normal.

Now you are purged of all that stuff and can start a new slate for creating. Can't wait to see your next adventure with needle and thread.
