I haven’t posted in a while because I haven’t yet started my next project. I have been getting organized so when I do start, I can stitch without feeling guilty and without much interruption.
My daughter is a drum major her high school band this year. I’ve been an involved band parent for 2 years and I’m on the parent board. I truly enjoy being a part of this organization because it is such a positive influence in the lives of so many kids. She’s had music camp this week, so I’m going to the school every afternoon. This isn’t a problem because I’ve made some wonderful friends among the other parents. I can truly say that because of my involvement in this program, I’m okay with living in Florida now.
My family and I moved from Atlanta in 2001. I was eager for a new start, but that was soon crushed after reality set in. Along with the hurricanes of 2003, I was ready to move with or without my family! But, I’ve overcome that and now enjoy being here. Work has become more a place where I can see people I care about instead of dreading coming to work everyday. Personal life is going great, so what more could a person ask for.
Due to all of these factors, that’s what started me back on my crafts. I’m currently 46 years old and I plan to live it up!
Have a great day and I’ll post soon with my progress on new projects soon!

Happy 4th of July! So far today, it's been pretty slow. My husband had to work and my daughter is visiting with a friend. I'm enjoying my time alone, since I really have no choice in the matter.
I finally finished my first linen piece! I'm so excited that I can't wait to start another one. I realize that I'm off on some of the counts, but basically I'm pleased with the final product. I plan to frame it and put in my downstairts bonus room.
My summer has been pretty predictable. Since I started stitching again, I'm letting some things go, but I have to get organized so I can keep up with everything. A stitcher's work is never done!
Hope everyone enjoys their holiday!
