A Quilt and some Guilt

A few months ago Sophia (my 10 year old) and I entered in a mini quilt contest
All the entries are being auctioned off to raise money for the alliance on ebay and ours ends tonight.
The rest of the quilts are here.  

I just thought I'd post about since it seems I haven't posted a single blasted thing in months!!!
That's where the guilt comes in.  I'm so sorry I've disappeared, I'm really am still here.  I feel guilt for not updating my blog, for not visiting the wonderful blogs of others, and for being the recluse
I have become.  This summer we added a few new family members to our household:  6 sheep, 4 goats, 2 puppies, 14 chickens (after eating a few roosters) and 2 kittens.  I am currently sleeping with a baby monitor at night because I am so excited to be midwife for my goat who is due to kid and day.
We have had a great summer of scooping poop, building fences, and neglecting the garden.
We are still here, and we still love you.  And Stina, I'm sorry I haven't sent your package yet, what is wrong with me?  I will send extra special goodies to make up for my extreme tardiness!
