Long Time....

Sorry for the absence.  Life certainly knows how to get in the way of things.  Right now, I am concentrating on a health issue that cropped up recently.  It's a little scarey but I think I will be ok.  I am hoping that medications will control it and surgery will not be necessary.

The big news is that I will be a Gramma in December. My soldier and the lovely Jenna are having a little girl.  I am very happy for them and I can't wait!

Stitching is coming along.  I am working on a number of small things.  I don't seem to be able to concentrate on anything large right now, my poor samplers are languishing. But that's ok.
I did get Done By Me framed. I will take a picture soon. I also am closing in on finishing a Prairie Schooler and The Prim Sister's School of Needlework. The Prairie Schooler has mindless fill in stitching and The Prim Sister's is so close another night or two of stitching and it will be finished.  Not sure I'm going to turn it into scissorkeep, I'm thinking frame and hang it in my crafty room.

I know this post is boring but I did want to check in with you.  I visit all of your blogs regularly and  I am overwhelmed by your creativity and craftsmanship.  You all inspire me and I love it when I go OH MY!!! How wonderful!

I hope that I will be blogging a little more now and I am so looking for Autumn.  My favorite time of the year!  Thanks for stopping by and hey to all my new followers! Glad you all are here!
