HI everyone

I just wanted to say that I am sorry I haven't been around recently. I am just a little overwhelmed with life right now and I always tend to withdraw when that happens. Please forgive me!

I've been stitching, on my exchanges and Bea. Bea is 1.5 motifs from being finished! I am so excited! She's all I want to work on but I MUST, MUST, MUST be disciplined and work on my exchanges. I do love what I am stitching so it's not that big of a chore.

I haven't taken any pics to share but I promise I will tomorrow as long as we have sunny weather. So stay tuned.

In other news, we were told that our gelding, Joey, is severely arthritic in his hocks and in his right front fetlock. The ponies got pedicures today and the farrier was very concerned about him. We will be putting him on an arthritic supplement. The farrier really gave us a start cause initially, he thought it was laminitis which is very bad. He thought this because our horses have been on grass for the past few days and new grass is very rich. We've been weaning them on it for a week now so we thought all was well. Fortunately, laminitis is not the case, YAY!

The Cadet, the lovely Jenna and the DH graduated this past Saturday. I am so proud of all of them!

So, off I go, my needle is calling!!! Stop by again soon!

I'm glad your horse's condition isn't as serious as you thought it might be!

Congrats to all the grads. :)

Congratulations to all of the graduates!

I'm looking forward to seeing your completed Bea, but did you see the class with Catherine Theron we're having here in Rochester? (Check out my blog!) Just trying to tempt you...

Congratulations on all of the graduates! I'm glad that your horse's condition is not the more serious one.

Glad that Joey's ailment isn't as severe as once thought. Good luck with the stitching and will look forward to seeing updates and/or a finish on Beatrix! Yay for you!

Congratulations on all the celebrations! Sometimes life just get nutsy (I share that)! Hope you get some time to yourself soon.

Good news on your horse - who could forget poor Barbero. I have been watching your progress on Bea and she is nearly done. Congrats on your son's graduation. I'm totally with you on life being overwhelming sometimes. I have been reading and commenting on blogs but can't bring myself to update my own. Take care.

Hi Joanie,
I can't believe your Bea is nearly finished. Congratulations. She is certainly stunning. I decided to finish mine yesterday when I finish Elizabeth.
Congratulations to all of your graduates. My DIL graduates in 2 weeks from Uni.
So glad that your horses are ok. The Arthritis part is a bit of a pain though. = Sandra.

Oh my, Beatrix nearly finihed. That sounds really great. Maybe it's done by now???
Congratulations to your graduates!

Hope your horse is doing well and congratulations on all the graduates! Thanks for the comment on my PS - we'll have to cheer each other on - I'm not loving that basket either! I've added you to my blog list so I can follow your progress on BP and the other one whose name now escapes me from the JCS mag. Have a great weekend1
