My...How Time Flies!

I can't believe it's been a month and a half since my last post! I've gotten a few emails asking if I've given up blogging and if I am ok.

No, I haven't given up blogging...and I am ok. It's just that life has been hectic and most days, I feel like I am juggling more balls than I can handle. It's exhausting. Work, managing two households, chores, errands, being social and dating. There just has not been any time for blogging...or stitching.

Mind you, I shouldn't whine too much. The summer has been lots of fun. I've gotten lots of sun and have had a wonderful time in general.

Some people have guessed that I met someone and it's true. Mind you, I am not ready to label it as anything because, even as the beau has said, I am hesitant and jaded and I can't shake that. However, it's been more than wonderful to have someone to talk to, listen to old jazz and swing music with, explore the city with and be close to. And it's nice to be surprised with pretty things like these once in a while.

I've forgotten how time consuming dating is though. So with managing my stuff and my parents many crisis' and issues, I have very little solo time. I've been managing about 100 stitches a week. Not nearly enough...I am going slightly insane and am trying to figure out how to build a routine to have time for stitching plus the gym.

I missed my TUSAL and IHSW updates and it is pointless to post one now since so little progress has been made and it is so late. The little bit of stitching I have done has been on Jane Pattison. I've been working on the border since it's quite easy to remember without having to refer to the chart much.
I have quite a ways to go for the border to meet but I really do like this piney border. Excuse the wrinkles. I've been working on this one in hand since I drag it with me everywhere.

I wish I could sit here and type away but I have a pile of mail staring me in the face. How this mail multiplies, I have no idea but someone has to go through it!

I hope to be able to blog more often and stitch more often and visit with you all more in the very near future.

Much love and hugs
Until next time...
