Long Time Gone

Well, it's definately true. I've been a long time gone from this blog. I had a minor routine surgery (out-patient even) that went terribly wrong.

After a near-death experience ~ that my children refer to as 'The Tragic Day' as in... "I missed that soccer practice because it was on The Tragic Day." They are so very dramatic.

Then a somewhat painful and unpleasant recovery.... I am now back after what really seems like a long time gone.

BUT, I have started to sew again, and I am now also beginning to receive 'Friendship Star' squares in the mail for the swap!

I must say, what FUN!!! I love swaps, it's like the fun of sewing, quilting, shopping and having friends to share it all with wrapped up into one nice little package!

So here is my question:

Should I start posting pictures of the squares I receive? Or do you want a surprise?

Now, remember, that some people are sending in 6 blocks to swap and some people are sending in 12 blocks to swap. So while EVERYONE will get new blocks (plus one of their own) they won't necessarily be getting one of EACH block sent in. Do I really make everything difficult or what?!

I was just wondering about you at the beginning of the week and thinking where did she go???? So sorry to hear it was unpleasantries and not something fun like a bazillion hours to sew with no mother/wife responsibilities. Hope your recovery continues on a good path.
