It’s been nine days since my miscarriage…

Hi all. I’m not ready to come back to the internet. I’m not ready to return to my blog. I’m pretty sure I’m not ready to pour out all my emotions. I’m not sure if I’m ready to share my thoughts. I owe you some reviews through the TOS Crew. (LearnBop, MySchoolYear, Veritas Press Online Self-Paced Bible.)  Until I can get them from page to post, please feel free to read the crew reviews. I also owe you a few book reviews. Know that I am enjoying Sarah Sundin and Michelle Moran as per usual as a one statement recommend their latest reads. Reviews to come. I need the fog to lift a little more first. Pretty much the only online interaction from me is sporatic updates from instagram across the social networks sharing progress on my “In the Arms of an Angel” cross stitch Lavender & Lace piece which. . .

Floss Tube Or Not To Floss Tube?

Funny thing, I wrote this post then was confused when I couldn’t find it. I accidentally wrote it on a old blog test site from my iPad and not Creative Madness Mama. Oops! I finall found it, however.  Lately, I have really been spending a lot of time getting back into the groove of cross stitching. Truly I would say that cross stitching was my first crafty hobby. I started out with stamped quilted baby quilts, then moved on to wall hangings in both a combination of stamped fabrics and small count Aida material. I never really stopped, but I haven’t stitched regularly. It was more as the stitchy-bug hit here and there. When I was pregnant with AppleBlossom was probably the last time I did a big gift project. In recent years I have worked during certain holidays on particular seasonal pieces, but no real finishes. This last fall. . .
