Yes, I know its been a while. No, I have not disappeared. My laptop died. It's actually fine, all except for the power button. Kind of impossible to use a laptop that you can't turn on. It's been over a week now. But, the good news is the part is ordered and hopefully I will have a working laptop again in the next week. And I have got much to show you- Sam's first encounter with spaghetti, the girl's first encounter with embroidery and three quilts in progress. So, keep your fingers the part on order actually works and soon there should be some exciting new blog posts.
