Been a bit busy...

The blog has been suffering from a bit of neglect, I'm afraid. I've been a tad busy- like we all get from time to time.

I'm still in the middle of DX's quilt- the top is done, the back is done, now I need to sandwhich it all together and quilt it. Should be fun. I've also started a second quilt for Daughter #2- the top of this one is totally from scraps of fabric that I had for quilt square swaps- so the fabric is mostly "brights" and some Laurel Burch fabric that I dearly love. It's going to be really cute! (BTW, I just found out that Laurel Burch passed away recently- I'm so sad about that- I just think her fabrics are so wonderful!)

I'm also making a quilted Advent Calendar for the kids... it involves some embroidery, and its sort of a spare project that I can work on a bit while DX & I are waiting for the girls at their school. It's being done on the fly all the time, so it's definitely not perfect- but I'll post a picture of it when I'm done.

We're also preparing for DX's upcoming palate surgery- it will be this Monday. So, after the weekend, I'll definitely be out of touch for a few days, as we get through the hospital bit. But I will post to let everyone know how he's doing.

Hope everyone has a good Wednesday!

We'll be keeping DX in our thoughts and wishing him a speedy recovery.

Wishing DX well with his surgery and recovery. I'm sure he'll do fine.

Good luck with the surgery. Hope all goes well.
