Hello All

I am sorry to have been absent so long.
As usual the winter blahs got me and that got me really early last year.

Then when I finally got my act together I have been so busy that I couldn't find the time to post.

Let's see what has happened?
I found out that Hubby and I are to be grandparents, she is to to make her appearance in about a month. So I have been busy  crocheting baby booties, blankets and sweaters. Sewing quilts and clothes and many other baby doodads

Then in April I went to the CQ Adventure in Connecticut. Which I enjoyed greatly. I met a lot of ladies I have only known through my cq groups and met some ladies who are new to CQing. Hello Janis, Carole and Sandy!!!

There is also a secret special project that I  can't tell you about right now. But the ladies who went to the CQI Retreat in Colorado last year know what I am talking about. When it is in the hands of the recipient I will post lots of pictures.

Before going to the CQ Adventure I decided that I needed a new hussif. So a 3 day project turned into 14. As usual for me :)
I see that I don't have pics of the whole completed project. I will need to do that soon

This is the bear I did for the Chinese auction at the Colorado Retreat
This new blogger will take me a bit to get used to.
Thank you all of you who have stuck around. I do promise to attempt to do better at posting
