Thank you all so much for your kind words of encouragement. You have no idea how much they mean to me! I printed out your comments so I can read them over again when I start to feel down. It's so funny because I feel like I'm a very strong person. But I've just been a weepy mess for the last few days. I think it's worse at night. He worked nights and I'd wait up for him and listen for the sound of the gate opening. Well, I catch myself still listening. And I mean I really need to put things in perspective here. There are so many soldiers who are fighting in Iraq, who are losing their lives everyday. Wives are losing their husbands. I'm not losing my husband, he's just in another state. He'll be home this weekend. I guess I just had no idea it would be this hard. I'm doing better each day though. It will be worth it in the long run.
Ok, enough about that! I am grateful to have my stitching. Man if I didn't have a hobby I think I would go nuts!! I decided to get my Houses of Hawk Run Hollow back out after finding this blog - Ribbip Ribbip.
I started HoHRH three years ago after it first came out. I started it on 36 ct. Pearled Barley using two strands of DMC. I regreted doing that so I put it away for awhile. While browsing her blog I noticed she was using DMC and it looked like two strands and I really liked the way it was turning out. So I got mine back out and I'm enjoying it again! I'm not 100% positive that she's using 36 ct., but it looks like it. I tried to comment to ask, but I'm not a member and didn't have a password.
So anyway, that's what I've been doing today. Thank you all again! I'm so glad I have such wonderful stitching friends! Write later!
