Hello....(she said sheepishly)
I know....I disappeared again.
Here's the thing. It's been really busy. We've been traveling. I started my new role as department chair. I've been meeting up with blogger friends. We got a new puppy (more on that later). Summer is whizzing past. I haven't felt like blogging. I'm behind on my blog reading. I'm behind on my email.
Thank you to those of you who have checked in to see if I'm okay! I'm alive and well! Sorry I am behind in answering you. I'm answering so many work emails every day that when I get home, I don't have much energy left for it.
But I'm having lots of fun. So, it's all good! I just wish summer wasn't leaving us already!
So, here's a little peek at what's been going on. I need to download photos to show you more, so those will have to wait!
Lisa emailed me today and said she saw in Gen Q's website that my Baubles and Bangles pattern is coming out in the next issue! Woo Hoo!!!! I had suspected so, but not confirmation yet. This just made my day! Can I tell you how excited I am to be in the issue where Valori Wells is on the cover and where one of the topics is hand embroidery???? (hint hint!) Hop on over there and check it out!
A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Colorado. While we were there, we visited our friends Rick and Kate (who used to live in Utah when we lived there). They had a dog named Skardu, who was one of Sweet Pea's best friends. He died recently. I blogged about that here. While we were visiting them, Sweet Pea picked a punch of wild flowers to put on Skardu's grave.
Before we went to Colorado, Sweet Pea and I had a Girl's Day Out. She said she'd been missing me with me being gone at work all week and only getting to spend time with her on the weekends. So, we went out and had some fun together. We saw Monsters University. It was far better than I thought it would be.
I have tons more I could tell you, but that's it for now. I'll try to get back to a regular schedule here next week.
In fact, on Monday, I'm participating in a blog hop. You'll want to stop by for some prize action! I have some great prizes!
Okay, gotta run and get to work. Thanks for hanging in there with me, friends, despite my slacking on the blogging! I miss you all!
Linking up with Cindy for Really Random Thursday!
Until next time,
