Where has the time gone

It has been forever since I have had time to write in my blog. Please forgive me. Have been on the road for the past 6 weeks. Going to visit friends in North Carolina, attending a stitching seminar in Louisville, KY, going back and forth to our condo in Florida and visiting friends in Mt Dora, Florida. All the while trying to stitch, keep up with e-mails, which I am almost caught up with, housework, laundry, and yard work.

I thought with this move my life would be calmer since I was new to the area and didn't know anyone. While, it seems that I am within 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours away from many friends who have also moved from Florida. I am not complaining - my life is very full - sometimes TOO FULL ;o) but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Another project that I did was to empty the last 11 dish pack boxes - these were the boxes that were packed when we left Miami, Florida 4 years ago. It was like Christmas morning. Now I am trying desperately to find homes for my new found old things.

This is a little Halloween piece that I stitched but as of yet have not put it into a frame or pillow or something. The picture is a bit fuzzy - sorry, but it is a darling piece and it is stitched over one on 36 count I think.

Thank you for dropping in and I hope to be much better with my entries.

With stitches, fabric and fibers ----- Roberta

Hi Roberta,

I think your life sounds fun! You are always so happy and full of energy.

I love your Bugs and Hisses, and I remember seeing the start of this in person when we went out for lunch. Congratulations on the finish!

Hugs to you,

At least you are discovering old things again as new. That is fun. I am glad to hear you are having time to work on stitching in spite of your busy schedule. Good to see a new post from you!
