Hello

Hello, remember me?
I know it's been a loong time,...two whole months!
I never had the intention to step away from the computer for that long, but let's just say I've got lost!!
I lost myself in many things going on at the same time. And those things gave me stress...lots of stress.
I had to make a choice....that's why blogging came second. I also wasn't all that creative, so what was there to tell?
But now things are calmed down and I try to work my way back. I've got a lot of blogreading catching up to do and try to find some inspiration again.

There is a stash of Fabric in front of me waiting to be transformed into a cribquilt.
It's a quilt for our first grandchild, DD is due mid-July. We are so excited!
The baby's room is almost finished and is oh so sweet.
Aunt Heleen was a big help. She made the curtains and helped with the crib. I'll post some photos of the crib next time. It's an old one, Heleen and I slept in it when we were babies and so were our children. And now it's going to be used by the third generation.
I'm off now...see if I can find my scissors and start on cutting this fabric and make it a quilt!

Congratulations Grandma! Nothing is better than a new grandbaby. How well I remember when our first was born a little over a year ago. Do you know if it's a boy or girl? I'm guessing girl because of the flowers - but then boys like flowers also and you do have some blue in that stack!

Congratulations!
I do believe blogging should come second to real life and it should be fun. Sometimes a break is good for you!

So glad you're back!! I kept checking... and no Dutch Blue.

Breaks are good for everyone. Bloging shouldn't stress us... it should be fun. The closer I get to my daughter's wedding, the more I'm thinking of taking another break to get everything done the way we want it.

Welcome back!!
