A New Blog, A New Start, and A Gift

I know there are some of you out there wondering what happened to me.  I have had personal mental and physical issues to deal with over the last few weeks and wanted a fresh start with my blogging and stitching.  So, here goes.  And I am hoping in 2011 to find more of all three:  peace, love and stitching.

I visited The Stitching Post today and picked up the newest Lizzie Kate, Last Minute December Kit.  I am using the linen that came with the kit and the recommended threads.


I was supposed to do a private ornament exchange with Melissa at My Life In Stitches, but due to other commitments I had to back out.  So, imagine my surprise when this fabulous ornament showed up in my mailbox on Saturday.  It could not have come at a more wonderful time, as my spirits were low and I was not feeling very Christmassy.  I cannot express how kind and thoughtful this was of Melissa.  I will treasure this ornament always.


Happy Monday to everyone.

So glad to hear from you Danielle, I was actually just thinking of you this morning... Hope everything is looking up. I find that if you remember to live one step at a time and BREATHE, everything else is a little easier.

Love how that ornament reached you at just the right time, stitchy friends are the best!
