One Month

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted anything!  I have been stitching on a variety of things...

It's been hard for me to stick to one thing!

Well, it doesn't look like my husband will be able to transfer down to Tampa after all.  We were pretty disappointed that he couldn't find anyone that wanted to go to South Carolina (they don't know what they're missing out on)!!  We really like it there, we just wanted to be closer to family.  The main thing I'm happy about moving back is that the kids will be able to go back to their schools and I'll get to stitch with my Carolina friends again! We'll have to find another place to rent in South Carolina next month and then we'll most likely look to buy.

We'll miss Florida... it's definitely been fun to be near our family and old friends.  Speaking of which... I was able to meet up with Deb yesterday down at Golden Needle.  It was so great to catch up with her, have lunch and do some shopping. :)  We're also really going to miss the pool....

  5. Love all of your samplers your working on. I have to tell you I went way back on your blog to see your "The Shores of Hawk Run". I've just ordered it & will be stitching it in NPI silks. Did you ever frame it? I didn't get to see it framed. I did see your Christmas Village at Hawk Run framed - WOW! Beautiful.
    love Annette

  7. I'm sorry that things didn't work out for you in Florida, but perhaps there is a good reason for that.

    Your stitched pieces are just beautiful. I don't know which one I like more - they're all wonderful.

  22. I would love to meet up with Deb...lucky you.

    You are working on some very impressive projects...they would take me a lifetime to complete.

    They say that things happen for a reason, there is a reason you will be heading back to SC ~ not a bad place to return to I might add.
