Really?! It's been that long!

Ummmm.mmm....hello there,  it's been a while, hasn't it?  So glad you all have stuck with me!  I appreciate it, really, I do!  I want to thank all of you who've emailed me to ask how I am.  I'm OK!  I survived my job situation, they BEGGED me to stay, so I did with major changes.  It was an interesting month to say the least. 

I've been stitching, so I'll let the pics talk.  I started this Prairie Schooler right around Christmas! I love it and now the only thing left is the row upon row of white at the bottom, perfect for mindless stitching while listening to the TV.

Next is True Virtue, a really pretty sampler from an old JCS magazine.  Connie and I are working on a SAL together.  She's much farther than I am.  I've found it to be a little fiddle-ly and the pattern is a nightmare but we will persevere!

Last, is the Merrily Beams that I've chosen for Lee's challenge, Older Is Better.  I love the funky 80's colors. I've named the couple Lisa and Oliver after the characters in Green Acres.  Silly, but they remind me of them!  I have done some major frogging as I've gone along, my stitching tension was wonky.  I can see a finish here soon!!

Well, I'll try to post a little more often now that my life is settling down. It's been a long haul but I think it's going to be ok.

Thanks for hanging with me!
