Merry Christmas!!!

Well, it has been almost a year since I have posted and I am sure many of you thought I had left the blogging world completely!  All I can say is it has been quite a year!

I finally found steady employment in an unexpected situation after close to 2 years without it.  It has been 2 long years full of stress & craziness!  There are many bosses/companies out there that are willing to take advantage of people that are desperate for work.  Places that feel that because of this they can treat you as deplorably as they want!  All I can think is that one day they will get their comeuppance.  What goes around, comes around.

I can also say for certain that while I thoroughly enjoy stitching, I cannot focus on stitching when I am stressed.  For those of you that it is truly a stress relief, you are fortunate.

While life is finally coming back into focus, I finally have a finish to show.  It's a Halloween design.  I know I am a little late showing it, but, here it is:

Designer:  The Trilogy
Design: One of the Motifs from "Eekology"
Threads:  Recommended threads
Fabric:  27 ct Bellpull

My niece got married in June.  I am still working on her piece.  While the piece is not large, it is taking me forever to finish it!!!  Now she is pregnant with her baby due in early spring.  So, I have that on the agenda to do as well.  One thing is for certain, it will be a small piece. She is having an owl theme for the nursery and I have found a cute little design to use.  Now, I just need to finish that wedding thing and get started on this one.

I generally give you my movie thoughts from time to time.  I haven't seen as many movies this year as I have in the past.  But, I will give my movie thoughts for the year on my next post.

I will also show you my finished RR piece that I got back a couple of months ago.  It turned out really well!!!  Thanks Clare & Lynda!!!  :-)

Have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

It's good to have you back in the blogging world! Your finish is cute, and I can totally understand not being able to concentrate on stitching when things are crazy!
