I can't believe it's been seven months since my last post. I wish I could write that I've been too busy stitching to keep up with this blog. But the truth is, I've barely picked up a needle this entire time. When I last left you, I was in the middle of an entire home remodel. We're talking down to the studs remodeling. Now, I know that remodeling projects are supposed to be crazy and that they say it can test the best of marriages, but I certainly wasn't expecting what was heading my way. About a week after my last post, my husband came home and said, "I've got great news, I got a promotion! Oh, and we have to move to Los Angeles." Ughhhhh!
So for the last seven months I've remodeled a house, shopped and purchased a new house, found renters for my old house, bought a car for my son who had his car totaled in a car accident by an uninsured motorist, (It wasn't his fault, and yes, he is okay), nursed my 19 year old daughter back to health after back surgery (She is doing fine.) Then my back decided to flare up, so I had a couple of epidurals. Feeling left out my right shoulder decided to go out too. Two cortisone shots and surgery two weeks after moving, I am now on the mend. In case you are wondering, I'm right handed so I couldn't even stitch while I was recuperating. And there is more, but I think you get the idea.
So now that things have begun to settle down, I'm starting to needlepoint. I haven't been able to devote lots of time to stitching, but I'm back to trying to get in an hour a day. Here is what I've been working on...

I know it's not much, but it's a start. Soon I will have more to share with you.
