I'm Back...

Like a number of other bloggers, I left the world of blogging.  After a 2 year break, I have decided to return. I am not sure how frequently I will update but I will make an appearance now and then. I wish more bloggers would return and that exchange groups would start up again. I was pleasantly surprised to see that some of you are still around. It was fun visiting your blogs to see what you have been up to. 

So much has happened since I last posted. Here is a quick rundown: 

September 2017
Vacationed in Ireland

November 4, 2017

Our youngest son got married in Georgia. 
We now have another wonderful DIL.

February 2018
Our oldest son/DIL had their 1st child.
Making me a Grandmother (móraí) to this precious little girl.

I made her these two quilts 

April 2018
We sold our Vermont house...

And moved to Georgia (move #10).
We are having a house built and will be living 
about 30 minutes from our son/DIL (that makes me VERY happy).

August 2018
Spent a week in Wisconsin visiting this little gem.
Like her móraí, she likes French Macarons...

And a Berry Smoothie

All of our belongings are stored in Vermont, including 95% of my crafting, so I have not been doing much stitching. What I have completed I will share in my next post. 

Until next time...

It was so good to see a new post from you, Marie!! And what a two years it's been for you! Lots of changes, but all of them wonderful... Congratulations on becoming a grandma to that little cutie! I'm still waiting (not so patiently!), but my oldest got married last October so I'm inching forward... Hope you are very happy in your lovely new Georgia home! And welcome back to blogging!

It's so nice to have bloggers come back. I get so much inspiration from these posts. I hope more will return. I had thought about starting a blog, but it looked as if so many were leaving. Looking forward to your posts.
