This horrible Midwestern weather just keeps taking.
117 lost souls ~ deadliest tornado in 60 years
Joplin, Missouri
We have so many things to be happy and grateful for.
I want to share with you things like bees and gardens
but the only thing we can think about is Joplin.
All the damage that a tornado can cause
is very disturbing, sad, and disheartening.
We all want to really do something, but do we?
We had no plans this Memorial Day Weekend
Joplin has changed that. This tornado has changed that.
We are collecting goods and heading down there to volunteer
and do whatever we can.
Oprah says we can ALL make a difference, no action is too small.
We have contacted friends, family, scouts, and 4Hers.
EVERYONE wants to do something.
So we are loading up one of the business box trucks and heading south.
It will be sad yet it will be love. We will see how things go.

Sewing Bug

Got the bug! The sewing bug.
Working on a quilt for my mom for Christmas.
And a toss pillow to match.

Creating a cute little tomato apron.

Got this great bin to help organize my growing stash.

My patchwork oversized pillows for my bed.
Having fun now on those rainy days!

Well, Well, Well ... Look Who It Is!!

It's ME!!
I am back.
I could blame my absence on my darned computer having problems
or just all the other things that I have found to do to fill my blogging time.
However, my computer's problems didn't last all that long and well
time has just slipped by.  But I have been busy. 
Over the next couple days I will share a little.
For instance since I have been gone ~
