Spring is Around the Corner

I meant to post before the end of February but..... It seems like everything has been up in the air around here for the past several months. Too much to go into details about. Besides I don't want to sound like I am throwing myself a pity party and I really want to move on and away from all the hullabalu that was our life for several months. I did get a post in before the end of March. *giving myself a fist bump* No pictures this time around. Maybe by my next post, I will be back "in the groove".

The past several winter months have been very dreary, weather wise. Lots and lots of rain. Cold wind. Many days of overcast skies. But we did have a beautiful snowfall. It was a "here today, gone tomorrow" type of snow. Now Spring is around the corner and I am getting excited about planting veggies and flowers. I love the longer hours at the end of the day and I love listening to the birds sing and chirp during all this wonderful weather.

 What I don't love are the allergies that accompany Spring. This year has already proved it will be a doozie and the pollen hasn't even reached it's peak yet! I have already had a swollen lip, swollen side of my face, sore throat, swollen glands and lots of itching with tiny red bumps.

  During the time I was away from blogging, a lot of other things were put on hold as well. The one thing I really missed was my stitching. I had such grand plans for my stitching in 2013 and I felt I got off to a wonderful start then it all sort of got devoured in the quicksand of life! For now, I will resume my stitching with what I have in my stash and I do have plenty to choose from! I am sure that I will order a few new things on down the road but not right now.

I am finally able to pull my stitching back out but am having a hard time deciding what to begin working on! I have narrowed it down to a small stack of 6 designs. Why is it so hard for me to make a simple decision? Then I saw the new freebie by Kathy. Love the alphabet, love the birds and love that I can choose my own colors! I went my LNS to drop off some items for framing. I still have others from last year that have not been hung up yet!

  That's about it for now. Next time I will share photos and here's hoping a more upbeat post! Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits.

So glad to see a post from you Sherry! I know exactly what you mean about life getting in the way of our stitching and blogging but I hope things ease up now so you have some more time. I feel like I'm running a mile a minute most of the time - at work and at home!

Looking forward to seeing your framed pieces when you get them back. I guess having to decide which project to stitch first is a good sort of problem isn't it. :-)

I hope things get back to normal for you soon. It's tough when life gets in the way of our pleasures in life. Good to see a post from you. Good luck with the allergies!

Sherry ... I am very familiar with that quicksand in life. I'm glad things are getting better for you.
