I know I've been missing in action lately. Yes, I've had a couple distractions with my new hobby (card making), I'm still learning and it's tons of fun. I did a little sewing this past week however not much. I've been dealing with some minor home damage due to hurricane Irene...thanks a lot Irene. My roof is in process of repair but fortunately there wasn't really major damage. I'm hoping to get back to my top and other...many other sewing projects I need to finish and start. So, I hope everyone is safe.
