Very little progress has been made on my project. My life is full of confusing paperwork, doctor appointments for me and life in general. I am really hoping that spring arrives soon and that things calm down around me. Part 3 of the mystery sampler has been revealed and will be arriving before long. I am hoping to get my stitching mojo back soon.

I did make a bit of progress. Stitching is still not natural or normal to me. I want it to work so much but I can't seem to get started and when I do, I find so many other things that need doing. I am making the rounds with doctors, as I should. Today I went to the knee doc and he did a cortisone shot and ordered an MRI for Friday. Then I had my teeth cleaned. I see my regular doctor on Thursday - Eye Doc on Monday..... I will be glad to have this stuff done. I am 'going through the motions' right now and just doing it. Tomorrow I am home all day, I think. I should do housework, find my craft room, straighten out some bills and perhaps some grocery shopping. It is a very busy week and perhaps that is a good thing. I miss my friend so much. For one year I knew he was leaving but I didn't want to face it. Now I have to be confronted with it each and every day. My heart is so broken.

It has been a strange week. Yesterday we brought Jack back home in the special box that my son made for him. It was sad to think of 'bringing him home'. Today is just one week since I lost him. So much has happened and nothing has happened. Tears come easy. I appreciate all the comments, cards, emails, and letters. I have a lot of friends and many are praying for me. It is a wonderful blessing. As I embark on the new path, it is wonderful to know that I am not alone. It my hope to get back to my blog. I want to return to my stitching. It has been slow as I feel like I am all thumbs with a needle but it is getting easier.

I started working on the Nordic Needle scissors pocket. I did the box top just a few weeks ago and now that project can move forward.
