My Blog Is Back Together, a Crafty Polka Dot Daze Visit, and Rehab Check In!

Thanks to Becky at Cutest Blog On The Block, I am all put back together and with a new look.  I really love it, and hoping that it will stay this way for a long time.....no more vanishing acts for me!!  Becky went of her way to work me through the whole process, even installing all the new goodies.  I highly recommend her.  BIG THANKS Becky!!!!

Spending some time in Arizona, which was a huge opportunity to visit and meet in person a couple bloggy friends.  Darlene from Quilting Daze, and Carol from Carol's Crafty Creations.  Carol has named it Crafty Polka Dot Daze......a very good name for our get together I think!!!  Darlene searched out a spot for us, and it turned out I was right in the middle from each.  I can tell you there was no moment of what are we going to talk about......just like old friends getting together and catching up.  It couldn't have been more perfect, both of them being as nice and fun as you could ever imagine when you read their blogs.  Darlene gave each of us a cute bunny and bunny towel, and from Carol a sweet Bag and charm pack...minie was Happy Go Lucky.  Love it, and think I will be making one of the minis for the Simply Charming sewalong using it. 

Today is Monday, and time to report in to Sinta with BOM progress!  I finished my last block for A Year To Crow  About ..........exciting!!!!   My little Easter mat isn't a block of the month, but it's almost done too.   I just need to add a eye to the chick and some quick quilting.  The pattern will be on it's way to you Sinta!

Next on the agenda, tackling some of my own bindings.....I am great at doing them for other people, just not so much my own!!  Hope your week got off to a great start!!!

I like your new blog look, very cute. I enjoyed meeting you too Cheryl. It was fun having lunch with you and Darlene. I agree, we never had the feeling of shyness that sometimes you get when meeting someone for the first time cause we know each other well we just finally got to visit in person which was very nice.
