I was able to sit out side and stitch today!!! It was almost too hot to stitch. Wow. I did enjoy it and then I took a nap. LOL. Meanwhile I now have a house. I think it was good progress.

I am working on it. I am sitting and looking at my craft room. I don't visit it much now. I need to get in there and do some rearranging and reorganizing. I have a new chair coming in the next few weeks. I did make a start on it today. I moved a few things and started cleaning up some piles of stuff. Frankly, it looks worse than it did several hours ago. That's okay. It will be worth it when I get it done. I can't seem to spend more than ten minutes in there at a time. It is an emotional block that I have to work through.

The materials for the new deck arrived yesterday. I am very excited about this. I hope to be stitching on that new porch and deck in the near future. It doesn't look like much now but it should be wonderful.

Leana sent me this beautiful mail art. It has a wonderful card in it. I think this is so beautiful because it is so simple. It arrived without any outside covers and it arrived in perfect shape. It is so nice to get surprises in the mail. Thank you so much Leana.

I have been moving right along. As many other stitchers already know, it is difficult when you have to stitch across the edge of one pattern, match it up with another pattern and try to continue on. It is all but impossible when there are four pages all coming together. I am finding it quite troublesome. I will be glad to be totally on part two. It should be happening soon.

I did make some progress today. It was a quiet day on the hill. Other than the power outage for over two hours. We are experiencing heavy winds and something must have happened. I was able to keep stitching. The generator kicked in. I am not sure why it still makes me very nervous to have the power out.

I finished the bee hive and the bees. Then I moved on to the next section. This is from Part two of the mystery sampler. (Blue Ribbon Design's Mystery Sampler). I feel like I am making some progress.
I have the window open by my stitching nest. It feels so good to have a gentle breeze blowing in. Spring is actually arriving in our area.

My thoughts and prayers are with those in Boston tonight.

Hello to all my dear followers. I am so, so sorry that I haven't been posting. I have been stitching, as you can see. I have 'touched a wall' as the section on the left goes all the way to the bottom of the design. Stitching is still a struggle. I want to stitch. I want to stitch for entire day but that is just not happening. Tomorrow will mark 4 weeks since I lost my best friend and it still hurts a tremendous amount. Hardly a day goes by that I don't get struck with tears and anguish. That horrible day seems so long ago and it seems like it was just yesterday. So much has happened. I am making strides. I am getting things done. One positive note is that I signed up for a stitching retreat in October with Thea Duck. I am thrilled and October seems so far away. I am sure it will get here quick enough. Today as the snow, sleet and ice are coming down, it is hard to believe that spring is here and summer is coming. Fall seems like an impossibility!

I did finish the blue flower section and then I decided to move on down the left edge of the project. I wish I had been able to do more stitching today but it was not to be. I had my third MRI on my knee today. They think they have enough information to decide what to do next. I hope so because I can't do another MRI. Then I was home for a few hours and then I left to go get new glasses. Yes, I can see better. I am still adjusting to them. Then it was a crazy afternoon. I hope tomorrow is quiet. I need some quiet.

I did housework and household stuff this morning. I put together all the stuff that goes into the new vehicle around noon today. Then I sat down and stitched!! I did make some progress. It felt good to be stitching. I still have a lot of things to do around the house but I can't do it all in one day. I have to take some time to slow down and stitching helps me do that.

My life is a whirlwind at this point. I had hoped that I could get to my blog on a daily basis but it just hasn't been happening. I do stitch a little. I have been to many doctors and so far they are all happy with how I am doing. My knee guy wants and MRI because I may have torn something but that will be happening soon. I have also traded in two vehicles and picked up a brand new one. New glasses are on order. Perhaps that will help with my stitching. Things do seem a bit blurry. I want to wish all a Happy Easter - a bit late. We had a nice dinner here with family. I am hoping things will calm down soon. I really do miss my stitching......
