Busy busy busy

Well, I just got a comment from a new visitor to my blog and decided that I had better put something up before no one ever came by to visit anymore.

I have not been doing much sewing lately. I have been really hooked on making ATC's for swaps on swap-bot.com. You have got to go see that site! There is so many different swaps you can join; sewing, writing, reading, scrapbooking... the list just keeps on going!

Well, while Dave was gone to the coast and I was spending so much time sewing, I managed to catch a real bad bug. So bad that my neighbor called the fire department (where I am a medic) and they ended up hauling me off to the hospital! I was so embarrassed that they saw me in a weakened position. I even cried in front of them! How humiliating! But they never said anything but sweet and comforting things to me and treated me so wonderfully. I love the guys I work with! I got to come home the next day and everyone was calling and coming by to check on me. The fire department is a huge and wonderfully loving family. Dave kept trying to come home and I told him to stay at the conference, goodness knows there were people watching out for me!!! It has been a few weeks now and I am all better, Dave is home, and people are STILL asking me if I am OK... wonderful

Christian is doing so well. He has hit 9 pounds! What a big boy! I have attached some pictures of him. Nicole is in one too. She is just such a good mama.

Anyway, I will work on posting some quilting pics soon. I HAVE to get the Jewels of Virginia quilt quilted before I go on the cruise April 27th! I need to get my hiney in gear!

Thanks for stopping by!
