Finally an update!

It's been awhile since I've updated and I sincerely apologize for that.  But.......in the meantime I have spruced up the old blog a bit.   I've put up a totally new layout and I'm continuing to add little things here and there as I go along.   I've got comments up and running so feel free to drop a line if you are so inclined (and no it does not have to be in rhyme *heehee*).  

On the homefront, I have several different WIP's going on.  I'm working on crocheting the afghan from hell (see previous post entitled afghan from hell) for my husband, knitting a hat for my daughter, sewing some winter clothes for my youngest and middle babies, harvesting pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, green lettuce, apples, and various other fruits and vegetables. I've also been having car trouble (first the window wouldn't roll up, then the brakes went out, the check engine light went on and finally the speedometer stopped working) and trying to work on that.  Otherwise, I'm just trying to keep the house in some amount of order.   But, hey, at least we've finished the corn!
I've also been shopping...

I've added this cute little monkey flannel fabric to my stash collection (on sale at JoAnn's for $2.99/yd)  I'm hoping to make some cute pajama's out of it for my 3 year old.   Plus, I found adorable little flannel dinosaur fabric (underneath the monkeys and also on sale) for the baby.   

So, as you can see, I haven't dropped off of the face of the planet.   But, alas, real life is calling me once again (my dryer is screaming at me for attention as I type) so I must be off.   :)
