Don't fall over. It's really me. It's been a long, long time. Back in June I attended the first weekend of the Rockome show. It was a great weekend. I woke up the following Monday morning in a training class for a new job. Talk about culture shock!
For the next 6 months I worked a crazy shift, from 5:30 PM to 2:00 AM. My days off were Tuesday and Thursday. In short, it was the pits. On the plus side, we have health insurance and a bit of extra cash coming in. As a bonus, I am allowed to stitch at work if/when the work load permits. Ah yes, getting paid to stitch. Can't complain about that.
In January I earned a day shift. Daylight became my friend, instead of the pest leaking in around the edges of my sleep mask. My days off are still during the week, but now they are consecutive days. I can also attend all but one of my evening stitching groups. Life is good!
When time and energy converge on a quiet moment, I make an effort to stitch. I'm also trying to get back into the swing of participating in the cyber world of stitching. That includes blogging.
Many thanks to those of you who sent me email messages during my time away. I am sorry you didn't hear back from me in a timely manner. Really sorry. I feel so blessed that you cared enough to write. Thank you!
Sometime soon I'll take pictures of my recent finishes. I've even had a few projects framed. Can you believe it? Shocking!
I can't post without including a picture. This is the pink version of Bent Creek's Spring Snapperland. Stitcher's Station in Hillsboro did the framing, and it is perfect. I would have never thought of using two frames.
That's all for now. I'll be back.
