Long time no see

It's been years since I looked at this blog, much less posted.  Life has a way of getting in the way of our passions.

Since my last post, my son has been posted in Minnesota with the Air Force Reserves, my oldest daughter was married, my middle daughter started public school in the 11th grade and my youngest daughter has made tremendous progress as a dancer. 

In less fantastic news, I am in need of a knee replacement, due to osteoarthritis and can no longer garden.  We removed my vegetable garden this year and replaced it with a small ornamental bed.

I am still crocheting, knitting socks, quilting, homeschooling my youngest, officiating at swim meets, costuming for theater and spinning yarn.  Added to the list of hobbies is making custom dance costumes.

As a peek at some of my recent work, here is a photo of a charity quilt I made for Grace Quilters last spring.  I am in the process of whittling down my fabric stash by making charity quilts, as well as ornaments that I can sell at craft bazaars this winter.
 
 
Hopefully, I'll be back once in awhile to share more of my fiber arts adventures.  But don't hold your breath.  Life is just too unpredictable.

Beautiful! I just found your blog and we share similar passions/beliefs. I am also another Lorraine. Looking forward to your future blogs. Starting a greenhouse later this week. East Coaster at the moment. Blessings to you and hope you recover quickly!
