Christopher update

Nothing new here. Last night I sent out a mass email to family and friends (you may have gotten it) updating the process. It pretty much explained the wait is much longer than we expected and that Michael and I are okay with that.

Then I decided to organize a post card exchange over at my personal blog. If you are interested in that or just wanted to be added to our email list, email me at and include your LID!! We have several people signed up for it!

I also updated them on the quilt, we have 34 squares right now. Several people have asked to exchange squares and as soon as I can cut squares in a straight line, I will take you up on that offer.

One of my yahoo groups suggested getting a visual countdown on Log in days. So I am off to go window shopping and heading to a thrift store. Someone suggested finding the amount of rocks that's the same number of LIDs until ours and putting them in a large clear, container. Each month take the amount of LIDs that were matched and put them in another decorated container. I will let you know what a find. THen I am going more window shopping to Ross and Marshall's..Fun Fun Fun!!!

what a great idea about the rocks! During our wait, I ate a piece of chocolate each day as a countdown--guess that wasn't very healthy!!

I'll take a picture of my 100 good wishes quilt and post it on my blog so you can see how it turned out--I am so excited to see yours!!
