I have been MIA. I have had my granddaughters here since August they are 4 and 6 and they have been keeping me busy. Our daughter is in Afghanistan. I haven't had a chance to do any sewing. I am how ever teaching my oldest Grand daughter how to sew. I have never seen a person pick it up they way she has. She is so enthusiastic. They will be leaving us and going back home to North Carolina in March just in time for me to start my spring wardrobe.
