I am baaaack . . . (well I am going to try and be back)

I know it has been forever since my last post -- actually Christmas! Yikes!! Anyway I can't begin to describe what has transpired over the past 5 months except that is all has to do with my job. I have been traveling for one or two weeks every month since January (with the exception of April when I was actually home the entire month -- my family didn't know what to do with me!).

Anyway things are still up in the air at work (my company was taken over in January) but I should know where I stand by the end of June. In the meantime, I have actually started sewing again. I hadn't done much sewing since Christmas either.

I spent yesterday with the Firehouse Ladies and if one ever needs any inspiration to begin quilting again, I strongly suggest you spend a day with your sewing friends. For one, I realized just how much I missed hanging with them and sharing ideas, stories and food. I came home and spent the rest of the day working on my applique stars -- thanks for the inspiration, Megan. I have only two stars left on the second border -- yippee!

So, I will try to post more often in the future. I have swap pictures to share with everyone from swaps that I participated in late last year before everything went crazy at work. I will try to post some of them soon.

Happy Stitchin!
