This is my recent completion from Watercolor Blooms by Stoney Creek.

I have been stitching a little more lately and I am working on Toccata in Green presently which has beautiful colors in it but I have not decided if I am going to go back into stitching full blown yet.

It's Been a Long Time

It's been such a long time since I last posted.  I no longer have internet in my home so I am not on everyday as I once was.

I have had a lot of changes since I stitched my last Mirabilia and since the days when I posted on here regularly.  We moved into a new house and I worked the tax season at H & R Block.  I completed over 150 tax returns during the tax season and it was nice to make a little extra cash (which helped us to be able to purchase a new truck for hubby which he desperately needed) but they don't pay very well; not much more than minimum wage.  My life was in a fog during those months that I worked and I didn't do much including stitching but over the 3 months that I worked I completed a design from Watercolor Blooms, it is the one with the poppies.  I don't have a picture of the completion but I have a photo of the cover.

Since I stopped working, I have not started any new job yet so I have been stitching once again. I guess once a stitcher, always a stitcher.  I am now working on a piece by Elizabeth's Designs called Antique Bee Sampler.  I am about three quarters of the way finished with it and then I will start Toccata In Green by Heritage Crafts.

Again, I don't have photos of my work at the present time.
I enjoyed a simple Mother's Day with hubby and we did have our daughter and grandson over because he turned a year old on Monday.  He was born on Mother's Day last year.  Here are photos of two of our grandsons.

So what is next for me: that is what I am trying to decide.  I do enjoy the simplicity and freedom of not having to work but it gets awfully isolated at times.
Thank you for those who still visit.
