Alright folks, I know that you feel like I've been held prisoner by the school and can't get back to you--well that's not totally untrue I guess. Or maybe I've been missing in action because I just don't want to blog anymore--totally NOT!!! Just busy? Boy what an understatement! I have had paperwork at the school that is OMG drowning all of us at the school. Thanks to our state department of education things have changed once again and we have a different set of papers and new things that we have to do for the end of the year paperwork! UGH!!! I wish they'd just find something and stick to it for a few years instead of changing it every year!

In addition, I've been dealing with my DIL that is a 10 hour drive away falling and going into labor 7 weeks early! She has not delivered yet--but it is still risky if she does--she's still 4 1/2 weeks early. Then my DD that is pregnant got in a wreck last night that caused her to spin the car twice on a bridge, hitting the guard rail twice! So it has been very stressful to say the least around here!

I wanted to let you know that there is a give away and a new site opening April 1--You Can Quilt This. Hop over to the YCMT blog and find out all about it and the give away. You can click on the button on the right to get there.

I also wanted to let you know about my new store--currently empty as all my pictures and all are on the computer at home. It is cheaper than Etsy and eBay. And if you sign up now, you can be a verified member for a lifetime fee of $7 a month instead of risking it increasing. I know Barb of Bewjeweled Quilts is already a member and has a store front there as well as Codi from Death by Denim have store fronts there. If you're interested, please let them know that Barb, Codi and I sent you there!
Well I guess without my pictures and without me doing much at home at the moment craftwise, I suppose I should stop here--but I did want Jen know that my swap blocks were mailed off and should be reaching you today or tomorrow at the latest. Ann you should be getting your package in the next week--DH mailed it and said that he was told it will be there in about 5 days. So be watching the mail!

Hey Shelly! I pray that your dd and dil are doing okay. Such a special time being pregnant, we must be very careful. Send them my best wishes.
~Tootles for now!

Shelly, I'm sure none of us would mind if you concentrated on your family (and yourself) right now. I hope your girls keep well and that everything will be okay with them. Good luck with your online store.

Take care...Ann :)

Thanks for the shout out!!!I figure seven dollars a month is just pennies for what I am doing. I have already earned my seven dollars and so, the rest is gravy...hummmmm Sorry you have been so busy and how scarey about your daughter and daughter in law. Let us know when the little one arrives.

My prayers are also with you, your DD and DIL. I do hope that all goes well with both.

Hi Shelly!
I got invited to participate in a purple charm quilt tree. All you have to do is send a few purple squares of fabric and you receive a TON back. I didn't know how else to contact you so please let me know if you are interested so that I can send the info out your way.
