Where Have I Been??

Recently my husband said I’d better get back to Blogging, and today a follower mentioned I hadn’t blogged in a while, so I guess I’d better get back to it!

Without getting into details, just say life got in the way of both stitching & blogging.  Nearly all of March, most of April and a great deal of May I didn’t even touch a sewing machine.  On the other hand, my husband & I have had a LOT of Quality Car Time, putting more miles on our car in 2 months than we usually do in an entire year.
