Pot-holder for Melissa!

Levi is currently sleeping in the recliner because he started throwing up today.... but he did draw Melissa's name for the pot-holder!  Let me know which one you like, or if you'd prefer something else that's great too- congratulations!  Quite fitting, actually, since you were the one who instigated this give-away.  =)  Email me your address so I can get it in the mail.
I'm feeling terrible for the little guy, but I'm also starting to get frustrated.  Since moving here last fall, it seems we get every bug that comes along!  I give the kids multi-vitamins, and vitamin D, they eat yogurt..... who knows.  I've heard way too many times that it's very normal when you move to a completely different place, but if it keeps up like this I may just decide to move back to Alaska!  We love it here, but there are no fabric stores close either...... that is really starting to put a chip in my side.  I thought it might help curb the fabric spending, but I'm thinking it almost made it worse.  When I do get to the store, I feel like I need to get a lot because I won't be back again for who knows how long!  It's only an hour drive, but I was used to quite a few stores within 10 minutes.  Now when I go, I have so many projects to get a little piece or something for, that it takes me over an hour.  And with two little boys in tow...... yeah, you get the point.  Anyway, maybe once the kids are all in school I'll open a fabric store here..... just one more thing I have extra time for, right?  ;)  First year in public schools is also a factor, so hopefully we'll be out of this stage soon.  Since Andy's napping and Breanna is easy to keep entertained.... I think I'll go sew.  =)

Sorry that you have had so many sick kiddos. I know that it is NEVER fun. Hope you got some sewing in. You do amazing and beautiful work!!

Oh, dear, that is depressing about Levi! I hope it is was an isolated incident! Do you use JoAnn's online at all?

Summer's coming! Hang in there! No fun to have sick kiddos...ever!
So excited to win one of your beautiful pot holders! I've emailed you my info! :)

I hope Levi feels much better soon. Sick kidlets are not fun (for the kidlet or for you)

Congratulations Melissa.

Yes, I think it's best you just move back. I'm glad you've reached this logical conclusion. It was only a matter of time. ;)

Yep, summer is coming! And no fabric stores? I'm ~30 min from any crafty stores. And 60 min from my favorite scrapping/stamping store. I do a lot of online shopping...it's not the same but it fits the bill. :)
