It's been a while!

So sorry that I haven't posted in a while! I just haven't been online all that much lately. I've been on here once in a blue moon to visit some sites that I like. As well as downloading some patterns to crochet. Other than that I have been pretty much keeping myself on the downlow~

I really want to thank my autumn secret pal at Crochetville she has been really sweet with all of the ecards, as well as the goodies that she has sent me. As soon as I get off of here I am going to upload the pictures finally. My summer secret pal was Becky, and we are becoming pretty good online friends as well as her being a really generous pal also. I've been really lucky to meet so many nice people at the ville.

Speaking of the ville... it is free to join, and has been written about in articles in magazines such as Interweave knits, and Women's Day Crochet addition recently. It's really exciting to see this once little group turn into such a great place for people to meet, and talk about what they love best.

Of course I can't leave without saying that I have been overly depressed about the situation in Louisiana. My heart is breaking for these broken hearted, and very mistreated people. I now feel that I live in a country that I no longer want to live in anymore. I can't keep my eyes off of CNN. For some reason the unspeakable is hard not to watch. That is probably why I haven't been online much lately either.

I hope that everyone gives in one way or another. My family will be giving to Habitats for Humanity, and I will be looking for the donation trucks in my area as well. I realize that the cost of getting items there is expensive, but there have been generous people in my area that are paying for the trucks so that we can give items. It just makes you feel a little closer than cash. Even though cash is king right now. Just be careful which charitable organization is getting it.

Secret Pal,

It's been a difficult thing for all of us to watch as people in the wealthiest nation in the free world starve, drown, and don't have a life anymore. Keep your chin up.
