Where Oh Where Has Nann Been??

Well, it has been sooo very long...as I write this I am overwhelmingly grateful today.
My absence is as a result of my getting ready to start graduate school...which is now in full swing.
I am so grateful for this opportunity to learn and expand my world.
I am also a year since my gastric bypass surgery and am now 220 pounds less than I was this time a year or so ago. There is more to this new living than I can tell.
My children are well.
And I am sitting in my living room watching this year's Nobel Peace Prize winner, our president, speaking at the Human Rights Campaign event and telling us all that he is urging congress to repeal the defense of marriage act. I am listening to a president speak of the importance of Stonewall and the history since.
It is a good life...hope you all are well in blog land!!!
Oh, and in the universe of quilting...Sho is doing the crafting these days. She just finished Jane's disappearing 9 patch swap blocks and is now working on the 3 sets of blocks we just got as part of the Quilt Around the World Swap. It rocks to have 2 quilters in the house.
Pictures coming once I figure out how to work the new camera!

I've wondered where you were! And I believe if given time ,Obama will (try to) fulfill his promises. He has taken steps.

Glad to have you back with us! Please tell Sho thanks for her time and talents in the ATWQB.
Don't ya just love new technology? By the time I figure out how to make it work, it is obsolete. Oh well!

You must look absolutely fabulous! Keep up the good work on all fronts!
