No I haven't fallen off the side of the earth and yes I am alive and well!! Things have just been busy, chaotic, a little crazy and a little overwhelming lately. Those spare minutes I am always looking for have vanished altogether. I haven't been visiting blogs and if I have I haven't been commenting so please forgive me, you are all in my bloglines and I intend catching up with your news as soon as I can! I have lots to share, parcels, family news and there has even been finishes!!! Yes a quilt top is away being quilted as we speak. This week the computer has been in high demand as my HS completes a lot of homework including a large VIP project for school before our mid year holidays start at the end of this week. Oh I wish he had been blessed with 'organised' 'don't leave everything to the last minute' genes!!! Anyway the plan is I will be posting again with some regularity from now and catching up with myself. Wish me luck!!!!
