I know it has been forever since I posted, but since then my life has been completely turned upside down. My beloved husband of 45 years passed away suddenly in August. I find myself faced with all kinds of challenges because I was very spoiled. Thank goodness for my two daughters, their husbands, my 7 grandchildren, and the rest of my family.

My stitching and blogging mojo is slowly returning. Spending a week with Jan helped a lot. We stitched and shopped til we dropped. While I was there we took some of my pieces to her wonderful framer.

I haven't done much stitching for two reasons. One is most of the pieces are on 40 ct which really slows me down and the other is because I'm having trouble concentrating. But I'm improving. Here are some of my works in progress.

I'm stitching this in a SAL with some online friends in Lisa's memory.
Penny America

Yesterday was my oldest grandson Wiley's 16th birthday. I can't believe he is that old already.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.
Until next time Happy Stitching,
