Where is Kim?!

So... what has been happening, you might be wondering? Was I stitching up a storm? Umm, no. Was I wiping out another quilt? Umm, no. What the heck have I been doing then?!?

Well - Work has been very grueling and draining on me lately - very hectic and busy, since my employer had to make a cut in the nursing staff, do to low census. Which leaves me to defend order, in a very tense environment. When I come home at night - I'm very tired and wound up. It takes alot of time for me to destress, and so that leaves me no time for stitching. It has not been fun, and I believe it will not be better soon, anytime soon.

I haven't even been able to take the time lately to go blog hopping and leave comments on other blogs. I feel so bad. But I gotta have alittle me time, especially lately!

So I have been spending lots of time on the computer lately. Getting ready for the ILCS 2007 Retreat in Indianapolis in June. All day Sunday, you can say, I was emailing designers and requesting if they would be willing to send us a donation to be used as prizes for our retreat. I have to say - I have met alot of wonderful and such giving designers that are very willing to send of their donations! I was alittle embarrassed in requesting, and I hope I didn't sound to forward on requesting. I just typed up the email as how I would want to be asked. Heck I would have donated to my request.. LOL I did include the ILCS group page - and I think that is why we have found alittle member splurge to see if this group was real. Which is GREAT! Oh and I had included my link to my blog, to show I was real. :)

Last night and this morning - I have created a webpage for the retreat - I thought that it would be very useful for to show the details in one area, rather than digging thru emails and on the group messages for info.

I have been stitching some though. And of course I was framing some projects (which are not totally done yet, but I will share in the future what I have done).

I have been working on the "Garden Of Life" from Blackbird Designs. Working on the RR for Debra - which is the Margaret Sherry 's 12 Days of Christmas - I'm doing block 8 - 8 Maids a Milking. This morning I printed out the biscornu pattern I wish to stitch for the retreat. So I will be stitching that up soon.

So that is alittle update about me. I hope not to be too absent from now on.
