I really have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have just too many things going on in my life, I guess. I have wanted to feel like posting, but I just could not make myself do it. I have visited the blogs I follow, but couldn't do my own. I really do not know why, but I feel like I am over the hump. Here is a little of what I have been up to....
3x6 Bee- Caretaker of a hive and Bee in a second hive
I made some little zippy bags requested by my daughters
I helped one daughter move and begin refinishing some furniture
I finished my Crazy Nines quilt from last year's Quilt Festival in Houston
I have watched one daughter play volleyball (which means lots of hours in the car and in uncomfortable seats and bleachers)
(she is the one that just blocked that ball!!!!)
and I have been baking, baking, baking! When my daughter went to college, I began taking treat bags to the team every time we went to watch them play. We didn't make every game so when I could go, I always wanted to bake something for them. They have loved it. I can't believe this is the 4th year. She will be finished with volleyball in November and college in May. It has gone by so fast and we have loved every chance to see her play. I have made cinnamon streusel mini-bundt cakes, pumpkin-chocolate chip cookies, Frankenstein cake pops, and mummy-decorated pumpkin bread.
(these were dubbed Franken-Elvis-es) (these mummys will be delivered Saturday-- Shhhhh!)
