long time no see!

You'll have to excuse my absence, but John and I were lucky enough to take a trip to FRANCE!! We got back last week and we've been playing catch up since. One of my mother in law's friends had passed along an application to us to go on a pilgrimage to Lourdes. John went as malade (or a sick person) and I went as his companion. We had a wonderful experience and it was so nice to spend time together alone. While we were gone, our families joined forces and painted our living room & dining room (my sewing room) and put in hardwood floors. It looks amazing, but I've been busy organizing and putting things back in place. Now it's back to the real world and housework (ugh!). I have a few handmade things to show this week, so hopefully I'll be able to share soon.
