well, for those of you who know who I am, I have put this blog together to keep up with my brother and to share a bit of myself with who ever is looking. I will include bits of my life and photo updates of some of my creations…. which could include stitching, food or my kids………… my hope is that my family will read along and my brother will comment when he can and let us know where he is.
