Look what happened while I've been MIA......

Allie said it so well and she said I could "copy & paste" her words as you all know I hate to type ;P
"There's A New Blog In Town Among The Gum Trees, a brand spankin' new blog by NINE Aussie designers, has launched! If you love hand stitching and darling projects, be sure to check them out. Brainchild of Jenny of Elefantz, this is a wonderful new place where the designers will be offering free designs, and news of their latest releases. LOTS of free new designs are coming! And each designer will be having a give-away. You can enter them all!One of the designers, Paula, has launched a wonderful new BOM, Life's A Hoot. You can click on the button on my sidebar(note to self to remember to do that) or her name, go to her blog, and click the Life's A Hoot button on her sidebar. That will take you to her site to download the pattern.I need more hands to keep up with these gals - they are so talented!" Boy oh boy what fun we are going to have!! I'm "sew" excited about this!! Now I've got to got check all of this out for myself. I'll post about my MIA adventures in another post.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BTW, I do have to tell you.....today is the 2 year anniversary of losing my mom.....so getting thru today has been tough so far.........maybe one day I will tell you about how I ended up with 2 moms.....but this is the one that raised me......I learned to sew by peeking over her shoulder. She was my female version of my soulmate.......shortly after she died I realized that I had done alot to grow up to be a bit like her......she was a homemaker, she sewed, put veggies up in the summer for her family, kept a spotless house(I'm still working on this one), was always there when someone needed something, loved her family fiercely, had more stamina and endurance than you can imagine. I still can't cook like her though.....my Dh says I can pack a house, cabinet or a suitcase just as well as mama.....She never got to see my sewing room, and I'm always catching myself wishing I could show her my latest project. I'll love that dear, sweet woman dearly til the day I die.

This was taken Christmas 2005.......

Sorry about your mom. I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel, but my thoughts are with you today. Sending hugs!!

Oh sweetie, I'm sitting here thinking about calling you and I will. I just got home from a rummage sale. I'm saying a wee prayer for you today too!

(((HUGS)))) to you and I know how hard it is too as my Mum has been gone now for just over 4 years. Just keep thinking she is now looking over your shoulder :) She is probably helping you do your sewing too :) Hugs Vicki

It is such a hard thing to lose your Mom. I was in my 20's when my Mom died suddenly. There just isn't anyone like your Mom to fill that place. Thinking of you and sending hugs. {{{}}}
