Should I even try to look up to see how long it has been since I made a stitchy update on the blog? I mean beyond an Instagram re-post, an actually, hey this is what’s up with me and my needle post… hmm… Let’s not and just pretend I’ve been here all along. Well, in all honesty, since the last time I was rambling here I have had three finishes including In the Arms of an Angel (Lavender and Lace 47), Woodland Enchantress (Dimensions Gold Collection by Ruth Sanderson aka Christmas Fairy), and Patriotic Angel (Dimensions Gold Collection). This is in addition to the earlier finish of my oldest daughter’s Holly Hobbie (Bucilla) birth sampler which I believe I have shown you previously. Through out this year and last I have been stitching away, but things have been chaotic with taking a new avenue in our homeschooling methods as well. . .

I discovered Heaven and Earth Designs when I was looking to complete my seasonal fairies from a beloved artist Ruth Sanderson. I had started out with two Dimensions Kits of Fall Faerie and Woodland Enchantress. Right now, I have one completed page of four finished on the fall faerie and the woodland enchantress is completely stitched except for a bit of backstitching and beads. I. . .
Crazy times, ‘eh? Well! My email inboxes are exploding and apparently are incapable of being tamed, but I’m trying! We went on a family vacation to a South Carolina beach and the kiddos all go to be introduced to the ocean and the concept of waves for the first time. That was fun and a good distraction for physical and mental healing. I have been busy cross stitching and going for lots of distraction these days and honestly, I am getting better. Interestingly, I gained a bit of weight with this last pregnancy, but since it did not take the normal route it did not shed as quickly. So please, pray for me to figure that out. I’m hoping a little more seriousness with Trim Healthy Mama and South Beach Diet will help. *Some affiliate links included. I’m working on some children’s picture book reviews.
