Popping In To Say Hi

Hi everyone!  I am just popping in quickly to say hello, and let you know that I am alive and well, and have not stopped blogging!  I have just been busier than usual.  I am way behind on all of your blogs!  But I will try to do some catching up this week.
So many of you continue to ask about my Mom.  I am so happy to report that she is doing great!  I went with her yesterday to her 6 month check up.  She had done a few tests the week before, and the results were all good!  She was quite worried about this appointment.  Who wouldn't be?  She has been through a lot.  She doesn't have to go back until March now!  We went to our favorite place, The Summit House, and sat out on the patio with our favorite Prime Rib Sandwich on a pretzel roll!!  And we toasted to health.  And to my Dad.  It would have been his 78th birthday yesterday.  We brought flowers to he and Nana before the doctor appointment.  I feel his presence, and know that he is watching over us.
In other news, I am SO enjoying my new sewing space.  I find that I am in there sewing every single day!  I am making some gifts, and quilting up some WIPS that have been waiting in the wings for far too long!  I am also joining in on a Quilt Along with Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet, haveyourselfaquiltychristmas.  I placed my first order with Fat Quarter Shop and purchased Lori's Circle ruler set.  And a bit of her beautiful fabric, a well as a couple of other fun notions.
 
I have now gotten my little sewing nest just the way I like it.  I have moved a few things around, and although it is packed in pretty tight, I have everything I need in one room, I am utilizing the space well, and it is working out great for me to be in that room!
Making travel bags, sewing patches on Brownie Uniforms, quilting wall hangings, and piecing blocks for a new quilt along!  I am busy, and enjoying every second of my time in the nest.
I hope to be back with a full post in the next day or two.
Miss all of you!
XO  Kris

I did a little bit of rearranging yesterday in my "sewing room annex" which is the adjoining room where my longarm is set up and also where my stash is stored. I'd love to have it all in one larger room but the way I have it now works well enough. I need to re organize my stash though, it's been messed up by someone! ha ha
