Betcha thought I was gone forever!


Well I'm back! And I proud to announce that after everyone's hard work at the yard sale we made over $1000!!!! Once again God has blessed us way beyond what we ever expected! Saturday night when we counted up our final tally we had exactly $1038.23! We will have our little Bulgarian babies home before you know it! The weather was perfect, we had tons of donations, lots of people came, and we had plenty of workers to handle it all, it was perfect!



The last couple of weeks have been so busy, wonderful, and exhausting that when I got home from the fabric shop yesterday I just collapsed. I slept like a baby for almost three hours, then slept good again last night, and this morning I feel like a new woman! The plan for today is to get my house cleaned up (it's worse than it's been in a long time after all of this running around) and then do some sewing. I'm making the girls new Miss Olivia Paige and Miss Claire outfits so that I can get some good pictures for the cover this week. I have had a blast for the last couple of weeks but I have to say, I am looking forward to sitting down in front of my sewing machine in a clean house. When my house is clean and I get to sew it just seems like all is right in the world. Ben and the kids are down at the garden working today, I think I may slip down there and take a few pictures. It feels good for life to be normal again but I know it's not going to last long! Dawn called this morning to remind me that we have two weeks and two days before we board planes headed to Quilt Market! Really? The last time I looked it was still two months away! Tonight I'm going to sit down and make a list of things to take and get done before then so that nothing else takes me by surprise. I miss you guys! I'm so behind on my blog reading and email (oh yeah, that's another thing I need to tackle today). What have you all been up to?

P.S. Stay tuned, I'm planning a giveaway soon!
