The blue roses are continuing to put smile on my face although they are starting to droop. Image my delight when a certain someone came home from work with these 2 beauties! My first birds of paradise (or is it bird of paradises?) and I love 'em...I wonder what zone they grow in..9? A person can dream, can't they?
Fred is still close at hand for stitching time. With the new to me readers, I can't believe the difference. It's so much easier to see the holes even with out strong sunlight. I won't be afraid of dark backgrounds in the future! It is obvious to me that this won't be completed in 2007, but I'm not going to rush and perhaps make a mistake I'll regret. My SAL with Bliss & Margaret has given me a strong jump off point and this will get finished.
I did sidetrack and stitch up this beauty...a freebie called Linen Heart. I got it through an online stitching group...and will share if you email me a quick note. I used a scrap of 16 count white Aida and some odds'n'ends of floss.
I must say, that I must have come around full circle. The trials & tribulations of the past have not beaten me down, they have shown me I can get through this and whatever else comes my way. I had about 8 weeks of intense emotional paperwork, between DH's forms and Dad's court audit/renewal of him being declared a Dependant adult. I could have bowed my head and kicked at the dust, but I mentally prepared myself and approached it in a methodical fashion, doing each next action steps ala GTD...and it got done and done well.
I did well and I feel so liberated! Hope your life is just as joyous as mine. Have a great weekend!
A crisis is only a crisis if we make it one.
