    Gosh it feels like I have been gone for ages (haven't been around much since September). It looks like so many new members too!

    "Life" happened, lots of good things though - a new job in Sept. and a new baby on the way (only 7 weeks left!!). We moved my little girl (now 2) into her big girl bed (going to need the crib for brother) - I was going to do something a little more organized but I really wanted to try one of those string quilts that I saw a link to on this board. So I used up loads of scraps to create this (it's a lot bigger than I planned as well but I've always liked bigger blankets anyway. Almost done, just finishing up the binding!

    Now I've got to get busy with some baby boy quilts!!! :lol:

    Thanks so much! This is the link - it's not actually a string quilt (oops I have that bookmarked for a future project as well) but called a crumb chaos block. Very fun (and quick too)!

    Congrats to you too Melissa :D !

    Erin was due on 10/10 but arrived on 10/4. So I am thinking with this due date of 4/10 - he will be here on 4/4 (wishful thinking I know and if I keep telling people I will be early I am CERTAIN to be 2 weeks overdue!!).

    Hope you are feeling fine, I feel good but certainly a lot better when I get a chance to put my feet up!
