It has been a very long time since I've felt like writing anything for this blog. Why? Oh, you know... life. It has been a kind of hard couple of years (yes, years!) and try as I might to sound cheerful and upbeat, it just wasn't working anymore so rather than post about the blahs, I chose not to post, at all. I have been on Instagram and Facebook because they don't take as much time or thought. You don't have to write a lot, just quickly post a picture or a note and you're done. Blogging, to me, is more personal and requires some time and organization that I wasn't willing to devote time to. Blogging is more personal. I've missed it. More importantly, I've missed YOU!!! If you're still a follower, thank you!!! With that, there will be no more.
No more wallowing. No more excessive worrying. No more waiting. No more pity parties!
It's time to blog!
I am also thrilled to have my son Matt home for the holidays, as well. He is doing great and has grown his hair quite long. When long enough, he will donate it. He is lucky and has gorgeous hair with pretty curls so it will make someone a beautiful wig, I'm sure.

Because I can't get this video to move, it's a bit out of place but it's kind of humorous and shows one of my finishes for this year. I did get it off and fixed.....

I guess I'll leave you with some stitching photos.... why not!? You may have seen these if you're on Facebook or Instagram. If you have, my apologies for the repeats!

I guess that's enough for today, right? Don't want to totally overload you or your computer. I have missed you all and am feeling a lot better so am sure I'll be a better blogger! I have tried to keep up with your posts but I see today that I have a LOT of catching up to do.
I wish you all lots of love and happiness for Christmas and I hope your blessings are abundant in the coming year.
