Catching Up - Yes, I'm Still Alive!!

Knock, knock . . . is anyone out there? Does anyone still check my blog??

I didn't mean to stay away so long. The last several weeks have been unbelievably busy between work and family obligations and I've barely had time to sit down and write here.

I can also blame my absence on my I-Pad and my somewhat broken laptop. My laptop has become a desktop computer. The screen has stopped working so I have to keep it hooked up to a monitor so I can use it. That's where my I-Pad has taken over my Internet life. With Flipboard I can quickly scan blogs, but it's more difficult to write blog entries.

So, what has been happened here in Coffee Time Stitches land?

Well, earlier this month, Mr. E turned two. We had his birthday party here (actually it was more of a birthday weekend). Here he is with his birthday cupcake:
Mommy and I made fishy cupcakes instead of a cake for his birthday party.
For his family birthday dinner I made him a doggie, woof, woof, cake.
And just to show you little ones are capable of using an I-Pad, here is playing on mine. He loves the ABC and counting games I have downloaded for him.

I participated in the Easter Basket Swap hosted Paula and Alli. I crocheted an Easter Basket for my partner, Jen at Lipstick and Laundry.
This is what she sent me: Starburst jelly beans, a collection of butterfly and angel items, a cute bunny, Alaskan coffee and travel mug and a gorgeous wind chime. Thank you, Jen!
I'm hoping to get back on track with posting. This break was not planned and I missed blogging terribly. Stay tuned for more news from Coffee Time Stitches land.

Sweet P

Glad you are back. I was starting to get worried and was contemplating writing an e-mail. But you got in first. Hope all is fine.

Hi Paula - glad you're back - I missed you! I just got an iPad and one of the reasons was so I could blog easier. Then, I found out it's *not* easy on the iPad. Bummer! But, I'm figuring out a workaround. o:)

Those little fishy cupcakes are adorable! I can't believe Mr. E is 2 and using an iPad already.
