Another Year Has Passed!

February 12 marked my second anniversary of blogging.
Like most of the past year I was a bit busy and somehow let the date go by without marking it.
And like most of the last year there are so many other things going on that it doesn't seem as big a milestone as it probably should.

I sit here now, posting in the most part, to keep myself busy while my sweet Dean is at the vet having his surgeries. It is so hard when our fur babies our ill. Everything else seems to fade into lesser significance until they are well again.

Having said that, I have done a bit of stitching lately, though there were many days that saw no stitching at all. This seems to be the new normal, for the time being at least.

I've spent some time with  the Blue and White again and thought I'd do a few progress photo's for you. I usually enjoy seeing these on other blogs.






On the sewing front I still haven't so much as put the hem in the first skirt, or sewn up the second one. Sigh. I'm planning some curtains for my kitchen, because frankly everything in there is 20 or more years old and looks it and I just want something more attractive. I can't afford to remodel, or put up new wall paper, but curtains are do-able and something is better than nothing.

I'm still thinking about doing a bit more blackwork and there may be a new start to kit up before long on assuming everything works out. I will keep you updated on how that is coming along.

Until next time Happy Stitching!

Happy Blogoversary!
I hope all went well at the vets and your furry friend is home and recovering well.
Beautiful stitching, lots of progress made on that.

Thank you Ruth, Emma and Julie. He is home and sore as all getout but he came through the surgery just fine. He has a long recovery ahead of him and our house and schedules will be a topsy turvy mess for some time to come. Just happy he has gotten through the first part and now we wait for biopsy results.
