Family, News, Updates

On May 8th, Rochelle's 6th grade class went to Washington Dc on a School Patrol trip. I got to go along as a chaperon. We took 2 buses. In one day we saw a lot of the sites. Due to time constraints, we did not tour the White House, but did get a group shot of all of them:

I was with these 3 gals all day. What a riot they are.
Haley, Rochelle and Megan.
I spent the next 4 days trying to recover while doing my normal running around to meetings, helping with some customers at the LYS my best friend Carla owns, and getting ready to pick up my BIL from airport on the 14.
Last weekend I was completely distracted by 4 men. My husband and his 3 brothers got together and what a fun time. I did manage to get some pictures of the 4 of them, first time in about 19 yrs! Sometimes men can be a bit frustrating. I have no idea why any of them are camera shy, they are all good looking. Of course I am biased some:

Rusty flew home on Sunday, and Monday am I got a text from my baby sister. So now I was distracted by my side of the family, and the result was this:

I am an Auntie!!
Please meet Madeline Rose Bobby. Born Tuesday May 20th at 12:17 am. She is 5 lbs 11 oz and 19 inches long. Oh yes, she is a red head like her Mommy too. What a sweetie!

Finally I had time to work on a dress for my youngest child, Rochelle. She had her 6th grade recognition dinner and award presentation on Thursday this week. I managed to complete it, and she looked great as you can see as she stands beside her best friend Nate.

So between spending time with family, doing some spring cleaning, and working on knitting, sewing and general life. I have been totally busy.

But that is not all I have been busy with. I also recently was hired by Handmade News a New online publication full of great Craft and Handmade information.
Today I have another article in it, this one is on Lace. I encourage everyone to take some time and read it as you can. Its full of trends, information and lots of ideas! You can find me under the Craft Trends dept.
